Backlash

The anti-backlash (cool double negative)rhetoric has come quicker than I
expected in regards to the Va Tech massacre. I am glad it's on people's mind
but still it hit the airwaves quicker than I would have thought.

I wonder if people will get as nervous when an asian cat walks into the
student as they do/did when a Middle Eastern brother gets on a plane.
(Asking people to make the Korean distinction gives them too much credit -
these are the same people who beat up Sikhs in anti-muslim rage after 9/11.
That's like beating up Knick fans because the Sixers beat the Celtics. sorry
that probably made the comparison more confusing. Basically Sikhs have more
beef with Muslims than Christians.)

Probably not since Asian Americans enjoy preferred miniority status in the
American country club. However, I do hope what comes out of this is that
one kid out there realizes that evil and mental illness came in all colors.
Columbine and OK bombing was done by white cats. 9/11 - Saudi. The Columbia
grad student was raped by a Black dude.

Race simply does not answer the questions we ask of it.

One more thing. Has the Va Tech shooting been linked to violence in the
media cum Imus cum Hip-Hop yet?

IMUS IS NOT A HIP-HOP ARTIST. STOP DRAGGING MY CULTURE INTO HIS MESS. HE HAS
FOOLED YOU ALL.

Fam, we'll never get a fair shake with the media. They are using the music as a cop out, and they are getting away this is because of Sharpton. He does way more harm then good.
