What was racist about the ucla girls video?

Some girl who goes to ucla posts a video online. Now within no time at all, the same day, the video is branded "racist rant." They ask ucla students what they think of it and of course they say it's racist. One student did not see it so they show him it and he does not even finish watching and says... show more Some girl who goes to ucla posts a video online.

Ok I saw this video and saw nothing racist about it. She was complaining about people talking on their cellphones in the library. And being responsible for your actions. She did an impression. But if doing an impression in racist, well I guess every comedian and actor in the world is racist. In "Who's Line is it Anyways" when they do "world's worst accent" damn they must be really racist.

If you took out the impression and asian, her video would be about rude people, and lazy people. But because she involved race, she must be racist!

All she did was make 2 generalizations, and did an impression.

The problem is that these are college kids. They are very young and most are STILL children. Young people have NEVER experienced racism so when something does not go their way, they play the race card!

Did this girl lynch someone? Did she put a burning cross somewhere? Did she even use a racial slur? No all she did was OBSERVE that certain people are doing something. She generalized. Do people not know the difference between generalizing and being racist?

They are going to RUIN this girls life as they do all sane people.

The reason why it was racist was because people were offended. Not because it was offensive. It's like "they were offended so it was offensive." Not the other way around. It's like being offended that someone is painting their house some color you don't like. Well, you really have nothing to be offended by. But if you are a minority you will FIND A WAY to twist it into being racist, play the race car, and win.

It is messed up that the media made a snap decision and tricked basically CHILDREN into giving them a story. The media just stirred the pot! Went on campus and made these kids say stuff that was not true. I saw a video of a tired, sweet, innocent, good student, just venting. To the kid that did not even finish watching the video; what if at the end she said "just kidding." Damn people are stupid! He is probably the guy that writes a book report without finishing the book! Stupid move moron! "Keep her mouth shut"? What about freedom of speech? Should she have bottled it up inside and gone on a school shooting Colembine style?

She did the only thing availabe to her, make a video. The most peaceful passive way of saying something.

She is just young and stupid just like all the kids that were tricked into saying it was racist. And making a snap decision like the media. She was IN THE RIGHT! And now political correctness HAS RUINED HER LIFE! Wow, this world is coming to an end soon, when insanity pulls rank on honesty.

What she said was right, but she said it wrong and people took it REALLY wrong. Geez it's the blind leading the blind at ucla!

We really should keep our mouths shut. When we see some kid getting raped we should "keep our mouth shut" about what race they were. When we are calling for help we should "keep our mouth shut" about what the person's race is. When a doctor is trying to help a sick person that should not take their race into account, because oh, no it's RACIST. No you morons it only makes sense.

I'm pretty sure they said it was racist in order to prevent a race riot, or an international incident. It just makes no sense.

Thanks for reading this.
