Stand Up For Your Rights
I also want to give a shout out to DJ Jin for spitting his words of battle cry against ignorance and representing.
As I tuned into KPFA's APEX Express and Harknock Radio and heard about the Hot 97 station's making a song calling the victims of the tsunami chinks and chinamen, my blood was boiling. How can anyone be so callous and ignorant to make fun of hundreds of thousands of perished people, especially from a couple of Africa Americans?! Haven't African Americans suffered from racism throughout their history? Why would anyone want to perpetuate racism when they are still victims of it? What is so funny about human beings dying? Where is the hate coming from? Why is the oppressed still hating on the oppressed? Where is the solidarity among minorities?
I truly hope that those two individuals and those who condoned their behavior learn from their ignorant actions because injustice anywhere will not be tolerated and ignorance is not an excuse to perpetuate racism.
