Another "I Hate Asians" video has gone viral and like the other YouTube videos out there, we'll simply ignore the haters as usual and let them use their free speech.
This week's "I Hate Asians" video was posted March 5, 2013 on YouTube courtesy of "Extremely Racist Indiana Kid" who posted his diatribe of "Why I'd Hate to Be Asian." The description on the video says that it was allegedly posted by a third party, not the individual in the video.
Without going through the details, the "Indiana kid" talks about why he'd hate to be Asian because of the usual stereotypes: everyone looks the same, small equipment, being short, sushi, and unattractive asian women. What he talks about isn't new or original, and his video doesn't need the attention like the Asian rant delivered by the U.C.L.A student back in 2011. In that epic footage, the student complained about the Asian students and their families running around her apartment complex and how they use their cellphones in the library when she's studying.
Alexandra Wallace, the student in that infamous video, stopped attending U.C.L.A. after she and her family began to receive death threats, their personal information got exposed, and they were ostracized from the community. The school did not discipline her for exorcisng her free speech in which she described as an attempt to make a humorous video on YouTube.
The "Indiana Kid" may find himself in a similar situation like the U.C.L.A student since the video is still being featured on YouTube.
The Asians, who are considering lashing back at the Indiana Kid, should think twice about their actions and concede that he is using his "free speech," no matter how hateful an individual's comments may be.
For those seeking revenge, consider these Chinese proverbs:
"He who seeks revenge should remember to dig two graves."
"To be wronged or robbed is nothing unless you continue to remember it."-- Confucious.
and Biblical verse:
"Father, forgive them; for they not know what they do." ~ Luke 23
What do you think? Is the "Indiana Kid" wrong even though he is exorcising his free speech? Leave your comment below.
