Bloggers are already picking up on the fact that the Virginia Tech shooter was of Asian descent (Chinese national I believe) and making declarations about how this tragedy should now be recast as "Asian Mass Murderer". You never see "White Mass Murderer". I also read a few xenophobic posts, i.e., yet another reason to not let in foreigners, immigrants, aka: People of Color.
Here is one for your review: Who is the Asian Mass Murderer?
This targeting of the Asian community isn’t new, and we need to recognize that there are criminal and mental health issues that will need to be addressed within the cultural/racial context AND many other issues such as campus safety, gun control, counseling, race relations, etc, that cannot be solved by a simple ban immigrants ideology. This is a horrible tragedy, and shame on those who use it to promote their racist creed.
