Think before you speak (and post)
Everyone can voice their opinion on the Internet. This past weekend, a student at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) posted a video blog on Youtube on noisy students at the UCLA library. I think we can all agree that people who talk loudly at the library should be kicked out and not allowed to return, especially during the last week before the final exams. But this girl especially targeted asian students at her school, made fun of how asians speak and even the tragic events in Japan.
She removed the video from Youtube but someone had copied it.
Now another student at UCLA has posted a satirical reply to the video. It may be the funniest video I’ve seen all year.
Someone even made a song out of her rant and dedicated a whole website to her: ChingChongLingLongTingTong.com
It’s easy nowadays for people to voice their opinion and reach wide audiences with little hassle. Still people have to be aware of that everything they do online will probably stay online forever. Racism should not be tolerated online (or in “real life”). This girl will hopefully start thinking before she speaks.
