    1 : a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race

    first off before i say anything else. i am in no way racist or a racist homophobe, and your statement is in no way backed by anything that i said last night. So before i move any further, i am going to ask politely once that the statements made in the above blog be removed or retracted. If in a period of one week they are not, i WILL take further actions. Remember this is a public site and while i have no objections to open opinion, i do have a problem with someone making a deformative statement about me

    There is a reason why I underlined that one section of the definition. See, I am not into all that PC stuff. I deal withe real world. That part that I underlined makes all the difference in the world. Now to be fair, stereotypes are not fair. Racism certainly is not fair. HOWEVER… just because one has a stereotype about someone doesn’t mean that one is inferring superiority over them.

    my opinion last night was not only just an opinion and a countrywide stereotype, but also backed by true information. and as posted above, stereotyping is not is not in anyway racist. If you remember when i said that asian country is the worst set of drivers, i specifically said that indians were the worst. in the posted link there is cold hard evidence of this. http://www.onlinejets.org/text.asp?2008/1/1/42/41790. And unbeknownst to you, i am a very intelligent person and not only do i keep up with modern society, i keep up with the society of the world.

    I have also included two other links to other pages that discuss this topic other than the ones posted, including one that an asian actually talks about how badly asian americans drive.

    In conslusion, as you can see i have gone well beyond what is needed make my point. and once again you have one week, or legal actions will be taken. It is well within my right to protect myself from deformation. I do not want an apology, all i want is for the above statements to be removed or retracted. And yes i have made copies of not only your blog posting, but of my statements as well

  • note, I did edit this blog post some from the original, as well as remove the commenter’s name.
    And that’s ALL I’m saying on this matter.

  • Thank God the DICTIONARY saved the day!

    If there’s anything I’ve learned from being an English major, it’s that links from places like livejournal and “www.asian-nation.com” are completely credible and factually infallible. Just like black people and white people shouldn’t have to put up with crap from black people. It’s true! See: http://www.kkk.bz/hold_your_head_high.htm. If it’s on teh interwebs, it can’t be wrong!

  • Dear Name Removed- I guarantee that I can find a bunch of articles to link to that prove that you are an idiot. The fact that you made the effort to find articles to prove your ignorance is just too amusing to me. Erini is MUCH nicer than I would have been to you.

    Feel free to sue me for being a big meany.

  • Woah. Just woah. Sometimes I’m just amazed by people’s ignorance.

  • The Dictionary

    “It is well within my right to protect myself from deformation.”

    I think you mean “defamation.”

  • Yeah, I also hates racists and homophobes. Quick way to make me want to break stuff.

  • Dear Name Removed,

    I’d love to see you try to sue for “deformation.”

    P.S. Spellcheck comes in handy while threatening someone.
    P.P.S. Capitalize your “i’s”

    Dear Name Removed,

    It’s not Erini’s fault that you’re deformed.
