I guess anonymity really doesn't hinder the racist, does it?–AJP "'In the nearly three-minute video, the student, identified a Alexandra Wallace, rants about the 'hordes of Asian people that UCLA accepts into our school.'
"In one searing moment, Wallace mimics an Asian student answering a cell phone in the school's library by saying, 'Ohhhhhhhh! Ching chong ling long ting tong! Ohhhhhhh!'
"'Hi. In America, we do not talk on our cell phones in the library!' she rants.
"The video first surfaced Friday, the day an earthquake and tsunami rocked Japan."
"Ms. Nakamura said she has been more surprised by completely new kinds of racism on some popular online video games that now count players around the world. For instance, in China large numbers of users began earning a living playing Lineage 2, winning virtual weapons in the fantasy role-playing game and selling their online loot to people in the United States who did not have time to play as many hours to arm their characters. Many of the players chose to play as a female dwarf, a class in the game that can more easily win treasure on solo missions. And so other players began killing all dwarfs in the game, often adding anti-Chinese slurs in the chat section of the game as they did, says Ms. Nakamura."
"The lawsuit, filed in United States District Court in Manhattan, claims that residents of public housing complexes, as well as their visitors, are subjected to police aggression and unwarranted trespass stops and arrests. Both stops and arrests have increased substantially between 2004 and 2008, the plaintiffs say. The suit also contends that the city’s enforcement tactics are aimed at minority-dominated communities and, therefore, violate equal protection rights."
"The multiculturalism of fact is rooted in considerable achievements of who we have become. The multiculturalism of fiction is rooted in the fear of what has never been."
