I will say that was totally wrong. He should have his say and he should be respected for it. What was second?

Wow, I wonder what Ms. Chan would think of all those racial stereotypes of yesteryear about Asians. Of those which I don't even have the common decency to type.

Probably that they have a first amendment right to say it. And that anti Asian discrimination laws should be vetoed. Because... free market?

I don't know what the second event was other than the Elisa Chan recording. Maybe the person who made the comment will come back and clarify.

Lol ok you really think the gays boycotting San Antonio is gonna effect us in a bad way? Like mention above how did that chicken boycott go?

Whatever life is good for me and all this means squat in the grand scheme of it all. If the gay community wants to have issue with this then I suggest you do something about it instead of fighting on a forum.

I'm not reading this whole thread but I'd just like to add she is free to believe what she wants. That doesn't mean I have to agree with her.

You mean words like "chi*k" or "go*k"? I read those just a few days ago in comments regarding this story on MySA.com. So...there ain't much that's yesteryear about it, I'm afraid.

If we could all just be honest, we might be able to start solving some problems. Nobody seems interested in that.

Wouldn't that be a unique concept, politicians saying exactly how they really feel about issues and not pandering to one group or the other. Sadly most people don't want to hear how someone really feels they would rather hear a lie just so it makes them feel good.

Very nice San Antonio, booing an injured Irag war veteran This guy is brave enough to fight your ex-governor’s stupid war, and lose a leg in the process, but God forbid he should have civil rights. All those “good Christians” may believe that they will go to Heaven but I think they are in for one hell of a shock on their judgment day. I can hear Satan laughing at them now.
