Urban dictionary to the rescue.

Quote:
An narrow opening and vunerable area in one's armor that the opponent will usually aim for. This term relies on "chink" in the sense of "a crack or gap," a meaning dating from about 1400 and used figuratively since the mid-1600s

Pay no mind to the racist Laker lovin' assholes on some backchannel at ESPN.

Some dickfaces need to get fired, accident my arse. If somebody used the N word or a gay slur, would they be able to say it was an accident? No

I heard they were just quoting Bill Russell, and they thought it'd be funny. Listen, Bill Russell is old, and he grew up in the 60's, and he's old. If he was put up to it, so be it, he's old and probably drinks like a fish. ESPN should have more dignity, and they also need to turn the court mics up during games, I can't hear shit.

It's an expression though and has no racial meaning to it.

Due to other factors was this not a good time to use that expression? Probably not.

Don't compare it to some other racially charged words, it's not an apples to apples comparison.

What is a common expression that uses the n-word that wasn't racially derived?

I understand why people might not think it's appropriate and likely wasn't the best choice but there isn't anything specifically wrong with it.

Chinkballa88 is more "racist" than "a chink in the armour", if that.
