Surely the facts are “Politically Incorrect”

“The student who posted an Internet video of her tirade against the Asian population at the University of California, Los Angeles, says that she is leaving the school, despite the university’s decision not to discipline her.
In a statement to the campus newspaper, The Daily Bruin, the student, Alexandra Wallace, said on Friday that she had chosen to stop attending classes at U.C.L.A. because of what she called “the harassment of my family, the publishing of my personal information, death threats and being ostracized from an entire community” because of her three-minute video.
“In an attempt to produce a humorous YouTube video, I have offended the U.C.L.A. community and the entire Asian culture,” she said. “Especially in the wake of the ongoing disaster in Japan, I would do anything to take back my insensitive words. I could write apology letters all day and night, but I know they wouldn’t erase the video from your memory, nor would they act to reverse my inappropriate action.”
University officials said they would not discipline Ms. Wallace because her video was an exercise of free speech.
U.C.L.A.’s vice chancellor for student affairs, Janina Montero, said in a statement that campus officials were “appalled and offended by the sentiments expressed in the video,” but that it did not seek to harm or threaten a specific person or group.
In the video, which was posted last Sunday, Ms. Wallace said that her complaints were not directed at any individual and that people should not take offense. But, she said, “the problem is these hordes of Asian people that U.C.L.A. accepts into our school every single year.”

“She said the numbers would be fine if Asian students would “use American manners” and went on to complain about Asians frequently talking on their mobile phones while she tried to study. At one point she mocked them with gibberish.
Ms. Wallace took down the video shortly after posting it, but it had already gotten a strong reaction at U.C.L.A., where at least 37 percent of the 26,000 undergraduates are Asian.”

Oh you can still find the video on You Tube.

And it’s deserving of closer analysis.

“I’m not the most politically correct person so don’t take this offensively.”

Translation: “I’m a racist and damned proud of it. And there’s nothing you can do to shut me up cause I’ve got my first amendment rights!”

“The problem is these hordes of Asian people at UCLA”

“It used to really bug me but it doesn’t bother me anymore”

Translation: “It bugs the living shit out me and always will.”

“the fact that all the Asian people who live in their apartments around me their Moms and their brothers and their sisters and their grandmas and their grandpas and their cousins and everybody they know they brought along from Asia with them come here on the weekends to do their laundry, buy their groceries and cook the food for the week, seriously without fail.”

Clearly she’s never seen any Wong Kar Wai

“I feel bad for all people because of the tsunami thing”

Translation: “I don’t give a shit.”

“Thank you for listening and have a nice day.”

Fuck You too, dear.
