Honestly, I don’t even know if writing this post is worth my time – or even worth your time.
But here goes:
Have you seen the video [below] about Rush Limbaugh’s “ching-chong” impersonation of Hu Jin Tao, China’s President?
It’s not that I personally dislike Rush Limbaugh. I don’t know him personally so to say that I dislike him would be a stretch. I don’t know him. I can say that I dislike and disagree with some (or more than some) of the stuff he says. But I’m digressing: That’s not my point.
What amazes me more sometimes isn’t the actual action I would judge to be idiotic, insensitive, or borderline racist. I’ve been around the block a few times and know that stuff like this happens. But what amazes and surprises me is how someone like Mr. Limbaugh and others can get away with saying or doing this kind of stuff. [You can replace the word “stuff” with another word if you feel that the sentence would flow better].
Seriously, have you ever thought about how some folks seem to get away with stuff that most folks could not possibly ever get away with. Or perhaps, an endless stream of second chances – which in my opinion makes the story of Kelley Williams-Bolar even more incredulous and painful.
I’m not concerned by one man or one woman. Rather, what concerns me is the power or influence of some individuals. And in that power and influence, it appears (from my perception) that there’s almost absolutely nothing wrong or bad a person can do.
There seem to always be an explanation. An explanation that defies consequences.
But seriously folks. I don’t care how you want to spin it. Doing the ching-chong ching-chong and mocking the leader of another country is just plain stupid. Just doing the ching-chong ching-chong is plain insensitive. And if you need to be told, slanting your eyes is not a sign of affection to your Asian brothers and sisters.
I don’t know.
I have nothing more to say except:
Ching-Chong Chong-Chong Rush Limbaugh.
God bless Rush Limbaugh.
