Alexandra Wallace – UCLA Racist Rant Regarding Asians

Posted by mikenopolis on March 14, 2011

Have you seen this video? A girl who happens to attend UCLA rants about her “issues” with the Asian race.

I thought, especially when Obama got elected, that American were one step less racist than they/we once were, it doesn’t matter which political party you support. We as Americans were able to vote in a Black president, that was an awesome step, that was something I never thought I would witness in my lifetime. Ms. Wallace basically set White people AND Blondes back 20 years, just watch those red-neck, white trash and dumb blonde jokes make a come back! I do wonder where she’s originally from as she seems to have no experience with the diverse cultures of Southern California. She thinks that Asians bring their relatives and friends over from Asia when they get accepted to UCLA?!?!

I’ve lived in Southern California for a third of my life. I know many UCLA graduates and know that Alexandra Wallace does not speak for nor represent majority of her faculty and peers. For those who blame UCLA for her choice of words would just be unfair. She spoke…on record as an ignorant individual, something I have done in the past, just not towards a race, gender, etc…I’m guilty of constantly judging people’s parenting skills or religious beliefs, but there’s a line to how far, serious and loud your opinions can and should be voiced.

Wallace starts off her rant by saying that she’s not the most politically correct person and that she didn’t mean to offend…she then goes on to offend majority (Maybe some don’t see the problem) of the people who listened to what she had to say. She says that her rant is not towards any of her friends, did this mean that she has Asian friends?

I’m confused as to where she thinks Asians come from, it really boggles my mind that she may think that all Asians are Japanese with her tsunami remark. AND does she not know saying “Ching chong ling long ting tong” is something that can ruin careers? just look at what happened to Rosie o’Donnell.

I don’t know how her life is going to go at this point, her full name is out there, her face is all over the the net. I’m not going to kick her while she’s down. Getting a job is going to be VERY hard for this young lady. I know she will learn from this lesson, and hope she changes for the better.


Ok…So…Here at UCLA, it’s finals week, so we know that I’m not the most politically correct person, so don’t take this offensively. I don’t mean it towards any of my friends. I mean it towards random people that I don’t even know in the library, so you guys are not the problem.

The problem is these hordes of Asian people that UCLA accepts into our school every single year, which is fine. But if you’re going to come to UCLA then use American manners.

So it used to really bug me but it doesn’t bother me anymore the fact that all the Asian people that live in all the apartments around me, their moms and their brothers and their sisters and their grandmas and their grandpas and their cousins and everybody that they know that they’ve brought along from Asia with them comes here on the weekends to do their laundry, buy their groceries and cook their food for the week. It’s seriously, without fail. You will always see old Asian people running around this apartment complex every weekend. That’s what they do. They don’t teach their kids to fend for themselves. You know what they don’t also teach them, is their manners. Which brings me to my next point. Hi. In America we do not talk on our cellphones in the library.

Every five minutes I’ll be…Okay, not five minutes, say like 15 minutes, I’ll be like deep into my studying, into my political science theories and arguments and all that stuff, getting it all down, typing away furiously, blah blah blah, and then all of a sudden when I’m about to reach an epiphany, over here from somewhere “Ohhhh!!!! ching chong ling long ting tong ohhhh!!!” Are you freaken kidding me? In the middle of finals week. So being the polite nice American girl my mamma raised me to be, I kinda gave me what anybody else would do that kinda like (Finger to her lips, signifying be quiet) you know it’s a library like we are trying to study, thanks. And then it’s like the same thing five minutes later but it’s somebody else you know, I swear they are going through their whole family, just checking on everybody from the tsunami thing. I mean, I know, that sounds horrible, like I feel bad for all people affected by the tsunami, but if you are going to go call you address book like you might as well go outside because if something is wrong, you might really freak out if you are in the library and everybody is quiet like you seriously should go outside if you’re going to do that. So thanks for listening, that was my rant. I just, even if you are not Asian, you really shouldn’t be on the cellphone in the library, but I’ve just never seen that happen before, so thank you for listening and have a nice day

I Want THIS True Multitasking in Apple iOS 5.x For iPad 3

Posted by mikenopolis on March 14, 2011

I never thought I would like the iPad as much as I do. I know for a fact that it is not a necessity by any means. I have plenty of computers, laptops, dedicated portable media player, few computers dedicated for the TV’s and an iPhone. What I really like about the iPad is the instant on factor, for years I have been too lazy to look up something because I didn’t want to boot up a computer. I still say the iPad is just a big iPod Touch/iPhone but the large screen does make everything easier.

This weekend as I was watching a movie and I wanted to look up something on IMDB. If I was on my computer, I would just use my dual screen. Although the current iOS supports multitasking, it is not true multitasking. I need to pause the movie, open Safari, do my search, then start the movie back up once I’m done. The iPad’s screen is large enough (This would give the user roughly TWO 7″ displays) and I’m pretty sure the newest Apple A5 Processor would be more than able to handle what I’ve “rendered” below. None of the tablet competitors have this functionality as of yet. I think if Apple’s team made this possible in next year’s release of iPad 3 and iOS 5 It will solidify their rank in the tablet market.
