This story continues to piss me off. The more and more I read about it, the angrier I get. Basically a UNITED STATES SENATOR called a young American of South Asian descent “Macaca”, which probably was the first stupid thing to come into his pea brain mind. His team is trying to say it is a nickname for a mohawk. Yeah, and I call all my Hispanic friends Lazy Sleepytons all the time and they just love it.
The video clip shows Allen telling the crowd: “Let’s give a welcome to Macaca here. Welcome to America and the real world of Virginia.”
Sidarth was born and raised in Fairfax County.
What is it with folks automatically thinking if you have darker skin, you must be from the rainforest or the African jungle?
The words could be especially damaging when considered in the context of Allen’s history of displaying the Confederate flag, Sabato said.
OH JEEZE. Well, I hope Senator Allen enjoys his reruns of the Dukes of Hazzard, because this mofo ain’t going to be our president in 2008, not with me and the rest of the macacas out and about and voting.
