LOS ANGELES (AP) —The student who posted an Internet video of her tirade against the Asian population at the University of California, Los Angeles, says that she is leaving the school, despite the university’s decision not to discipline her.

In a statement to the campus newspaper, The Daily Bruin, the student, Alexandra Wallace, said on Friday that she had chosen to stop attending classes at U.C.L.A. because of what she called “the harassment of my family, the publishing of my personal information, death threats and being ostracized from an entire community” because of her three-minute video.

“In an attempt to produce a humorous YouTube video, I have offended the U.C.L.A. community and the entire Asian culture,” she said. “Especially in the wake of the ongoing disaster in Japan, I would do anything to take back my insensitive words. I could write apology letters all day and night, but I know they wouldn’t erase the video from your memory, nor would they act to reverse my inappropriate action.”

University officials said they would not discipline Ms. Wallace because her video was an exercise of free speech.

Haha. She is right about the Asian student's families coming over all the time. There are so many people in that apartment....

Despite the fact that she is an idiot... Really? Really? This is important enough to make news? She said nothing truly offensive or vulgor. She offered her opinion. if she said the same exact thing over, replacing "asian" with "white male" the video would have 3 hits.

Let's revert our attention to Charlie Sheen now.

I'm tired of Charlie Sheen. Can we go back to Tom Cruise?

we(and i'm not speaking to all asians here) are racist too, but we don't put ourselves on video. we are secretively racist and we'll talk shit about you in our own language so you won't understand. :shades:

but speaking about the japan earthquake, it's just wrong.

is it just me or is she the perfect stereotype? - blond, "American", big boobs, and an idiot
This will probably be a good example for me to post in. If I posted a picture of a black male and said, "Perfect stereotype - big lips, stealing stuff, "African" and stupid" I feel like I'd get a comment saying I'm racist. But, you know, whatever.

>if she said the same exact thing over, replacing "asian" with "white male" the video would have 3 hits.
Exactly.

Voting for Obama becasue he is black is patriotic. Voting for McCain because he was white is racist.

I just found it ironic that she is complaining about the "asian sterotype" while she is probably the exact same for them

    Good luck to the hurricane path people. Is TH still in Houston?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I think so
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Yeah we got nothing here did not even rain
  • Ghan Ghan:
    We could use some rain.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not complaining though Hurricanes are not fun I have been through alot of them
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
  • Varine Varine:
    Didn't the backwards compatability have issues too?
  • Accname Accname:
    I never had any hopes for that. Blizzard is not the same company it was 10 years ago.
