A UCLA student - a self-proclaimed "nice, polite American girl" - has received threats after the ill-advised posting of this video.
Not much more to say than "Wow." Not only 'ching chong' and 'hordes of Asian people' but following up an imitation of Chinese with a reference to the tsunami that hit... Japan. Methinks the reason her 'epiphanies' never arrived had little to do with people talking on their cell phones. One wonders how long this will follow her around for.
The story is covered by the Daily Bruin and Angry Asian Man, and a comment on the response to the video is here; searches for 'Asians in the library' on Youtube will turn up lots of responses, parodies and remixes.
A Google search might also turn up the blog 'Asians Sleeping in the Library,' a Blackout Korea-esque blog consisting of photos of Asians sleeping in libraries and classes and which is "meant to celebrate, not berate, the hardest workers at our universities." It apparently welcomes submissions, and contains posts with titles like "Asians sleeping in packs."
As always, no one will ever go broke underestimating the amount of stupidity on the internet.
