Skip to comments.YouTube Asian ranter Alexandra Wallace leaving UCLA after receiving death threats
Posted on 03/20/2011 11:04:07 AM PDT by Nachum
Alexandra Wallace, the southern California undergraduate who apologized for her recent YouTube rant about the hordes of Asian people that UCLA accepts into our school every single year, said Friday that she will no longer be attending classes at UCLA. In a statement to the college newspaper, The Daily Bruin, Wallace said, the harassment of my family, the publishing of my personal information, death threats and being ostracized from an entire community has caused her to leave the university.

The forces of tolerance are ostracising and harrassing her?
She probably figured the Asians would act like whitey people and do nothing.
America is going to make a great Muslim country. We’ve already got most of the population running around shouting, “I Keel You!” when you say something they don’t like.
Routine display of liberal tolerance and fairplay.
If she were Black, we would never have heard of this (racist) incident.
Liberal “civility” at its finest.
If she were a Brit, she’d probably be talking about Pakistani Muslims. Since she’s American, and this is UCLA, she’s presumably talking about Chinese, and a few Japanese and Koreans.
Far from receiving affirmative action from California universities, Asian students are discriminated against, because they are not a designated minority. And they are overrepresented in California universities because a) they are bright; b) they are ambitious and eager to succeed; and c) their families really push them.
So, ranting against them makes little sense. They are not part of the affirmative action crowd that makes it harder for whites to get into good colleges. They are just bright and ambitious.
She is terrified of ASIANS killing her? Come on! She deserves to quit UCLA if she really thinks that Asians will kill her. Sure, no Asian will be her friend and she can call it being ostracized, but that is fair treatment.
What she said was insensitive, especially in light of what’s happening in Japan. However, the reaction she has received has been so over the top that she has become a victim. There are too many people who like to play Gotcha; as soon as someone makes a public mistake, there are alot of people who will try to destroy that person in order to make themselves feel superior.
The native born Americans are now pushed out of the schools that generations of their families sacrificed to build, just because the new arrivals are hostile and belligerent when someone hurts their precious feelings.
What do they say about Americans in their native languages? If two Chinese students at UCLA banter about the ridiculous round eyes in Chinese, and do so openly, will anyone castigate them? If they put it up on YouTube, will it result in their ostracision?
Nope. Of course not, for they are above Americans in status: they can say and do anything they want, with any sort of hostility and hate, but it's all OK for them.
Hope all the little darlings are happy they got rid of Alexandra: now they can just buy posters of her and sit in their dorm rooms and do...well, you get the idea.
If the definition of a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged, I’m curious to see how this very public P.C. flogging will impact her belief system.
I’d be willing to bet that no Asians (or hardly any at least) threatened her. I’ve no doubt it was white liberals who were horribly offended on their behalf.
Well, I attended UCLA’s MBA access program a year ago to qualify for this year’s fall program (USC is too damn expensive) and one cannot exactly blanket the Asians as “bright”.
They are mostly introverted. The Chinese and Koreans are outgoing, the Japanese keep to themselves silently, Singaporeans are talkative. The Filipinos on the other hand, even though my bro is married to one, are socialists at heart. But if I ever started a business from scratch, the Japanese are probably the best to consult. You just have to convince them to speak up more.
Hell, let her say what she wants. The objections made it more than clear the vast majority of people out there disagreed with her.
I just find it interesting, the tone of her rant. Who could possibly want more kids that apply themselves, study hard, and make excellent grades in a major university setting.
Enough of that! /s
Foreign (International) students have to pay tuition fees that’s more that what in-state students have to pay, unless they’ve received financial scholarships. Universities specifically break down the fee structure based on the above categorisation.
I have a hunch that since her Youtube rant went viral, the death threats are coming from places far removed from UCLA. Thus, one of the downsides to posting oneself on the web for the world to see. Pandora’s Box for sure.
Well, FWIW, I had several Asian students as PhD candidates in NYC, fresh from mainland China, Taiwan, and South Korea. Yes, they had some problems with writing in English, but actually so do many of our American students, who were miseducated in the public school system.
They were all different as individuals, of course, but they did very well, worked hard, and had no more problems with English than American students—just different problems, like how and when to use the definite article.
And they all came in with high SAT and GRE scores.
Pretty much all the chinese coming to the West are going to be in the upper 1% of chinese in terms of intelligence.
the dummies come later
that’s the way it works.
Oh, that’s surprising. I wonder how they composed their thesis dissertations and exams.
At least now she has an interesting story to tell on her next college application.
You should have seen the thread about this over at DU. It was literally vomit inducing.
I saw the original video.
She was commenting in a not so politically correct way on how Asian students act uncouthly in this country. For example, like how Asian students have no respect for the sanctity of a public library by yapping on their cell phones.
The fact is she was right.
There are many people from all over the world who come to this country and act like they own it and bring their barbaric ways with them.
You will find much more egregious racism in Asian countries, where American students don’t get any of their top spots in their universities, than you will find in the US.
“... are very recent immigrants and they have not paid much in the way of taxes...”
Would they also not support illegals paying in state tuition? Perhaps not all minorities are equal.
Asian-Americans or Asian-Asians?
Asian-Americans or Asian-Asians?
I mean -- born here or born there?
Maybe because the people making the threats against her are oppressed minorities, who are a protected class in the Holder Justice Dept.
They’re bright, but their large numbers at UC are creating a problem; UC draws from a state tax base under the premise that they create an affordable way to get a GOOD degree.
If accepted, real Asian students from abroad pay FAAAAR and above what a native Californian pays, if accepted.
For this reason, it’s best for the parasitic UC (and CSU) system to suck off of a hostage populus, but then also turn around and market itself to rapidly growing Asian economies —they make big, big money this way, and their own kids are not subject to the same entrance criteria that the kids of the unwashed tax-base schmucko’s out there.
Think carefully; is Hong Kong a place with a sharp demand for Universities? Yes? Are they THERE? No, they are not there in Hong Kong, or even very much in Taiwan.
That is because the public, “University OF California” [sic] and elsewhere in the USA very neatly, very **lucratively** chose to fill that role, AND THEY ARE HAPPY TO.
The most lucrative thing for UC is to TALK public, but then ACT private —THAT is the force that is permitting inflation in higher education.
And that inflation is far, far higher than for the REAL private sector, something they relish to lambaste as “greedy”.
The hoardes of Asians at Calif Uni’s show NOTHING bad about those Asian kids —it’s just another symbol of the completely out-of-control greed of the California public sector.
California universities actually have had a no discrimination policy (no affirmative action) since the late 90s. Asian enrollment has surged since that time because they are no longer being discriminated against.
Probably not the Asians threatening her. It is those liberals with white guilt. You know, the ever so tolerant left.
I have posted this many times. What right do you have to parachute in here and go to an American high school thus qualifying for in cheaper state tuition. Plus if you are smart getting admitted rather than someone whose family has been paying taxes her for 100-200 years, served in our military and fought in our wars. Lots of these fresh off the boat "Asians" think white students are lazy fools and in some cases they are correct
>>What she said was insensitive, especially in light of whats happening in Japan.
What she said hit the news at least a week before the Japan quake.
Do Asians use machetes now?
She is a silly girl, who learned a hard lesson. All of that ting tong stuff that she said was really demeaning. My daughter is about to go off to college next year, I am thankful that she is much more mature and well spoken than Miss Wallace.
she mentioned tsunami in her video.
As I understand it, Wallace was part of a group of aggressive anti-Christians who posed as conservative Christians online and posted “parody” websites, videos, and comments. These postings were designed to conform to or exaggerate a negative image of conservative Christians, by means such as playing up a “hick”, ignorant, sheltered, or bigoted persona into order to make conservative Christians look bad. They particularly enjoyed duping real Christians into agreeing with them; this validated their pre-existing negative view of Christians, as well as helping to discredit Christians among others.
By igniting a racial controversy, however, Wallace went too far and was herself consumed by it.
Unfortunately, it seems that her real motivations and associations are being carefully ignored.
The Bolo, the Parang, the Golok.
Are they Asians or hispanics/blacks?
