As an Asian, I am NOT outraged.

I have found that whites are LESS racist than the other races in this country.

Kate went to her blog Tuesday to deny she is racist, to explain the context in which the photo was taken and to seemingly lay the blame for its mysterious release on her ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, who is second generation Korean-American.

"I married an Asian. I have eight biracial children therefore I’m quite certain that I’m the last person that could be called a racist," Kate wrote.

"This was a happy memory of mine," she explained about the time the photo was taken. "It was a happy time for me and Jon, smiling and 'goofing off' together.

"Evidently, a fan sent [the geisha headpiece] for me to wear so that I too could 'be Asian' like the rest of my family.

"At that time, a common topic of our show was 'everybody’s Asian'— except for mommy, so a thoughtful fan figured she’d help me look Asian too!"

Gosselin explained the photo was taken by Jon himself who also posed in the headpiece for a pic, seemingly implying he was behind the photo being leaked, asserting t was, "opportunistically turned into something that it never was intended to be."

"Those photos taken on my phone were later uploaded to be saved on the home computer…..the same source of other private information that was taken and has since been made public, without my consent," she wrote.

The other private information Kate referred to turned up in a shocking tell-all book, Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World, which was pulled from sale two days after its release by order of Kate's attorneys.

Kate has announced she intends to sue the book's author, Robert Hoffman, along with her ex-husband, who she claims leaked inappropriately obtained confidential documents to Hoffman in an effort to smear her name.

Kate and Jon were married for ten years, they divorced in 2009.

Not surprising, whether it is true or not.....anyone who watched their show from day one....is well aware, that even with all his failings, John was by far....the much more honest and truly loving of the two.....

Give me a break...all her children are 1/4 Asian. Which means she is open minded to cultural diversity. If she were white trash like lets say...Paris Hilton, then IT'S ON!
