I didn't watch the video because the girl looked like someone you'd see on reality tv (which i loath) but reading from the quotes I just got to say one thing. Why do people always assume Asian languages all sound the same? I've watched plenty of anime and I listen to my sisters watching chinese, tiawanese, and japanese dramas and none of them sound the same.
My god that girl looked like she doesn't know any culture other than her own.

At first i was just annoyed. She was just tossing out stereotypes like candy on Halloween. Nothing i haven't heard before but definitely racist and uncalled for. I've seen plenty of loud WHITE people, what about them? I mean honestly, ching chong ling tong? I don't get it is she complaining about people talking on the phone or what language they speak on the phone? What really pissed me off was when she was talking about the tsunami. "If your gonna call up your entire address book, do it in the hallway", Honestly, I understand that it's a library, but I doubt if she and half of the white people in the library called relatives in New York 5 minutes after 911 anyone would be pissed.

I don't care if she has freedom of speech, that doesn't excuse what she said. Obviously she shouldn't go to jail for being ignorant, but NOBODY can morally justify what she said by saying "She has freedom of speech". What really boggles my mind is that this problem is so serious that she had to make a video. I take racism everyday and try to shrug it off, it upsets me but I don't make videos about it. And surely racism is a bigger problem then people talking on the phone in the library.

I think this needs to be seen in connection to the events in Japan. Clearly she made this video complaining cause she dislikes the Asians at her school, and now that they've broken the rules and American customs by speaking on their cellphones in the library, she finally has a "valid" reason for being pissed and takes advantage of that to rant.

Oh come on what she said wasn't as bad as I thought
What she said is partly true. Grow a dick and stop crying


Yea? How about if the situation was the opposite, an American exchange student in Japan after 9/11 who has been waiting for 5 days to hear whether or not his/her parents are alive or dead! When you finally get that call, do you think you'll have much consideration for being in a lirbabry or not, does it even strike you you might be in a quiet zone? I don't think so...



That had nothing to do with my first post. I wouldn't have a problem with an American student doing it or an asian one. I said what she said was partly true.

Okay I'm not sure... Where I misunderstood you then?

I think she's really bad and I don't think anyone should grow balls... In my eyes what she's saying is extremely offensive. Not so much cause she's a little racist, but because she's complaining over Asian people answering their cellphones in the librabry, and I'm assuming these people might very well be kids who're worried about their relatives being well... It's an extraordinary situation and she should be understanding - Just like how America forced the rest of the world to be understanding after 9/11 when they went on revenge crusade in the middle east

I'm..not sure where you misunderstood
In my opinion there is way worse she could've said. She is just pissed at people in the library who are on their cell phones calling people to check on them. Get out of the library and do it. It's not hard, it's like when you are in a waiting room and your p[hone rings. Do you sit there and talk, or do you go outside the room or building. It's a public nuisance. No matter what the reason.
And America didn't force anyone to understand them. I don't know what you are talking about.

I just hate how sensitive people get about little things. This is so little, nothing to get upset over.

She is a typical example of what is wrong with the west and how a lot of girls are today. I can imagine her being drunk and rude......... Damn it, is it possible to hate someone you have never met so much?

Yes, she could have said way worse.. She's being racist and ignorant in a not too offensive manner. What's so wrong about it is the extreme situation the Asians are in, that she completely disregards. She's clearly exaggerating the problems size too, "people calling every 5 minutes.... Okay, not every 5 minutes, but maybe every 15 minutes!" ..Maybe it happened twice?



And America didn't force anyone to understand them. I don't know what you are talking about.


This is kinda unrelated, but they sure did. The attack on Afghanistan was a revenge act for 9/11 and Europe was forced to join in the slaughtering. All over the western world the news would bring these oh so sad reportages from America telling about the land of heroes and the free, and families that'd been ruined and how the evil middle east was trying to kill freedom and democracy.




I just hate how sensitive people get about little things. This is so little, nothing to get upset over.


You can turn it around and say exactly the same. So what if someone is talking on their cellphone, when they are in a situation so extreme and bizarre. That's nothing to get so upset about, she should be a little understanding.
