    She didn't say anything that bad, she was just saying people should be quiet in the library and it's usually asian (I'm guessing she meant orientals?) people who are being noisy...yeah she wasn't PC about it, but it wasn't a hate filled tirade either. I hate genuine racism, I've been a subject of it myself, but stuff like that is minor and hardly offensive.

    I'd hate to meet her family. those views don't come from nowhere, you can tell she's grown up with them. Regardless, I have no tolerance for racism. I hope she get's what's coming to her.

    And what racist views would these be exactly? Her parents have drummed it into her that Oriental people are noisy in the library? :rolleyes: She really wasn't that racist.

    "Oriental"? What are we now, carpets or vases? Also, if stereotyping an entire group of people and making a mockery of our language isn't blatant racism, I do not know what is. Calling out a group of people using cell phones in library isn't wrong. However, stating that only Asians do it is ignorant and racist.

    Anyway she has dropped out of UCLA so I am sure she has realized the consequences of her actions

    I wouldn't really consider that racism, it's just a comical interpretation of an accent. I'm always called a terrorist and stuff and I don't really think it's racism, just banter...obviously when some absolute twit came up to me and said "get out of the country you immigrant scum" (I was actually born here...) then yeah, that's racism. But a bit of mockery isn't, it's a marginal annoyance if anything. People need to lighten up and learn to laugh at themselves.

    Orientals is the name for people from that region. Asians are people from India/Pakistan etc.

    As I said to another poster, mocking an accent isn't racism. It's racist to hate on a group of people, but a bit of light hearted banter never hurt anyone. I'm often called a terrorist, I just make a joke of it and say stuff like "about that...I wouldn't get the 925 today if I were you." People need to stop taking things so seriously, if you can't laugh at yourself then you can't laugh at anything.

    It's unfortunate if she dropped out because of that video, it shows how oversensitive our culture has become.

    LOL exactly. As I said, I get called a terrorist all the time, I just make a joke of it. I always thought it was called 'having a laugh' personally. :rolleyes: People need to chill and not take everything so offensively, it's really pathetic lol.
