It's Only Race-Baiting if You Say It in English


Really, when will those Vietnamese stop running candidates for election to Congressional seats that clearly belong to someone else?

Congresswoman Sanchez has since explained this as nothing more than "a poor choice of words that some people have taken as offensive" and apologizes. I have to wonder, though, whether she would have used this same "poor choice of words" if the interview had been for an English-speaking audience.

Incidentally, "anti-immigrant" Van Tran and his family "first came to America in 1975, evacuated by the U.S. Army a week before the fall of Saigon."
