Virginia is for Lovers?????

Holy crap have y'all heard about Senator Dumbass racist in Virginia? Okay his real name is George Allen the current senator in Virginia. Cut & paste this & read it!
Now watch, from the title link, on YouTube his kindly words to the Macaca (monkey??!!) in the crowd. Here's the tidbit I got thanks to my bf in MN.

On Friday Republican Senator George Allen sunk to a new low. At a campaign stop the
Virginia senator singled out the only non-white member of the audience--S.R.
Sidarth, a young Indian-American volunteering for his opponent--and called him "macaque" (a racial slur meaning 'monkey'). He went on to say, "welcome to America."
As it happens, Mr. Sidarth was born and raised in Virginia.

Can you join me in asking the Republican National Committee to take a stand against
these tactics and withdraw support for Sen. Allen? (You can also watch video of the
incident through the link below).

What a feeking idiot (God forgive my judgement!)!!!!!! Here is the e-note I sent to him at his website under the topic choice of... Indian Affairs ( I kid you not, that is one of his choices):
Shame on you sir. To assume, based on a percieved race that someone is NOT an American, is not only an act of horrible ignorance, but worse an attack on the very America we live in. I feel sad for you. With every fiber of my being I pray you find a greater happiness than the sad state of affairs your mind has been in. Thank you.

Feel free to give him your thoughts at:

The saddest part is that is attitude reflects the way a lot of Euro-Americans think. If your not clearly white of Black your not an American. WTF people?!?! I hope all this bring more awareness to the white privilage based ignorance so many have here in US-land. Anyway a nicer more personal post is next.
