Response to Too Many 'Model Minority' Asians in the Library

From The Huffington Post:

Although she wasn't a celebrity a few days ago, a student at UCLA, Alexandra Wallace has become something of a name for a really unfortunate anti-Asian video she posted to YouTube, "Asians in the Library," in which she makes the mocking "ching-chong" phony Chinese sound and makes a comment about how Asians in the library are irritating her even if they're getting news about their relatives "back home" after the tsunami.

What is it about this horrible disaster and the tragic aftermath -- we're on the brink of a nuclear meltdown, hello -- that is bringing out such stupid reactions?

I enjoyed this response to the Wallace video. One cannot help but notice, however, how gender is built into this video towards the end as a way to put down Wallace (attack discrimination with another form of discrimination). Nevertheless, I enjoyed the bulk of the video here.
