"The contributing editor of Vanity Fair magazine says last week I noticed a bevy of conservative commentators such as Glenn Beck piously lowering their voices and paying tribute to the calm and resilience of the Japanese people in the time of trauma, emphasizing that there had been no looting in the aftermath of so much destruction and disarray.”
“And the real message of their tributes were… there’s been no looting in Japan because they don’t have black people running amok and ransacking"

It's ironic they are willing to label all Conservatives as racist because they think the Conservatives are labeling all black people as looters. They can't even see their own hypocrisy.
And FYI neither generalizations are true.

Well Im not being funny, but if an impartial response to stimuli is what you are after, then never , ever , ever listen to a damned word that halfwit Beck says. The man is incapable of intelligent discourse, and insists on bringing everything down to territorial phallus waving more often than not. Its a wonder all his thoughts havent gone on strike over pay and conditions, or alternatively just left and gone somewhere more nourishing.

ck on Topic!) is that anytime a member of a minority race is involved or affected the left or MSM or who have you want to scream racism. It seems that the less pervasive REAL racism becomes the more overly-sensitive to racial issues people become. If no one dies by murder in 100 years the next time a murder occurs it's a big deal right? So, the less overt racially motivated acts become the more fantastic it becomes. (Fantastic in the MSM sense, NOT in the "that's frikkin' awesome!" sense)

I complained about this just a day ago. I'm a black conservative and I can tell you right now it isn't just conservatives toting this racism around praising the japanese for the disaster and comparing NO. It's ignorant people with no heart. The katrina victims (who weren't only black btw) did not have enough food and water for the whole city therefore people were starving. It was the not comparable to Japan in the slightest. The Japanese were well-prepared for a disaster like this. They had plenty of food and water to go around. Had they not had those vital things, there would have been looting all over just like Katrina. That's carnal human nature. Its not because the Katrina victims were wild animals. Its just stupid people with a racial agenda that like to attach that stigma to blacks because they have a chip on their shoulder with black people. I pay these people no mind.
