"In white supremacist circles, Montana has taken on mythological status as a potential part of an Aryan homeland."
"One reason many black and Latino families choose not to trust their tap water might have to do with the fact that in some minority neighborhoods, the water is actually pretty crappy. If I lived in Washington, D.C., I would be particularly suspicious of lead in the water. And if I lived by a hospital — especially an aging, understaffed, underfunded hospital in a city with aging infrastructure–I would be concerned about the dumping and flushing of drugs and medicine into the water supply.
"Minorities are not dumb, and are no more susceptible to advertising than any other people. If Congress would allow more funds to go toward America’s aging water infrastructure, then minorities wouldn’t feel pressured to look to Coca-Cola for their water supply."
"The reclusive 'Chappelle's Show' star said that he didn't even get a chance to begin his routine that night because attendees in the front row began heckling immediately and that he was worried that it would become a 'reverse Kramer' situation–a reference to the bigoted tirade "Seinfeld" alum Michael Richards launched into at a comedy club in 2006. Instead, he stayed on stage for 46 mostly silent moments."
"The United States has apologised for controversial remarks made by a US diplomat who spoke of 'dark and dirty' Indians, calling the comments 'inappropriate'.
"US Vice-Consul Maureen Chao told Indian students on Friday that her 'skin became dirty and dark like the Tamilians' after a long train journey, according to Indian media–referring to people from the southern state of Tamil Nadu."
"Taped eyes? Yellowface? Ching chong? Yawn.
The real tip on “How To Be Asian” that’s missing from the vid? If you want to be Asian, rule number one is Don’t Suck. I don’t know if this video was supposed to make me laugh or give me an outrage boner but neither happened. It just kinda hung there like a stale fart waiting to be collected in a glass jar and ushered out of the room so the rest of us could carry on. It was meh, it was mediocre. Mediocrity, of course, is failure, and failure isn’t Asian."
