I guess I'm missing the point, pro violins are worth upwards of $20,000. It's sad all those people died, but if you were on that train and they lost your 20-40 thousand dollar instrument wouldn't you do something about it?

Yes, it is her livelihood and they can get the violin without disturbing the people who are injured and they ain't gonna disturb the dead.

She tweeted about her lost violin within minutes after the train derailed. She couldn't have known that people had died. All she knew was that Amtrak wouldn't return her violin, and as far as I know still has not. Professional violinists spend years to find their instrument,

While I apologize for having posted a video of a different Jennifer Kim, in no wise do I regret it. The Jennifer Kim in post #1 is an artist, and I cannot in honesty regret having disseminated such beautiful artistry.

BTW, note that I never mentioned the race of any of the violinists in any of my posts. Only liberals see everything through a racial prism.
You didn't mention any race, but you did post the wrong Asian girl and tried to pawn it off as being the one you were talking about as if one wouldn't be able to tell the difference. So when do you plan on apologizing for your blatant error or are you gonna continue to pretend like you didn't make a mistake?

So, in the "world of Jennifer Kims" you opened your eyes and saw reason to make yet another baseless attack on the left, eh?

Why apologize for an honest mistake? Get off your high horse.

Because you acted like this was the fault if liberals, let me know when you are done with your baseless attacks and false use of a video about the wrong person.

They have the same name. Really. Who knew that there was more than one professional violinist in America named Jennifer Kim?

Try reading post #53......

Think we should keep all posters in mind who refuse to see a mistake.

Just make sure you don't make one!
