    The usual suspects that claim welfare, food stamp, complain about their jobs being taken by Asian Americans, highest crime rate, drug usage, teenage pregnancy, and all the highly valuable contribution to our society. Someone please call Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to tell them that the little boy’s stomach is hurting the thugs’ hands.

      Seriously dude, your last name may be Lee, but you sure are one small step from burning crosses and wearing white robes and hoods. Way to indelicately dance around what you really want to say. Circa 1940’s Memphis called. They want its racist generalizing mentality back!

    • MoMoChan

      And you would be the usual suspect of racism. Ignorance personified. I’m sure, if you beg them, the KKK will allow for a new Asian member. I think you’ll fit right in.
