Usually, it's a missing dumb blond white girl that sets off all sorts of media storms. Now, it's a missing dumb ChineseKorean man who's got the media all abuzz and search parties frantically searching to save him from his stupidity (taking a turn into the mountains? In the snow? Without tire chains? Then leaving your vehicle? Too bad he already reproduced, or we could nominate him for a Darwin Award once we find his frozen body in a few days).

Now, if this isn't a sign that racial relations are easing in the United States, I don't know what is. They're pulling out all the stops for one of them furrin darkies! Of course, Asians are the "good" minority -- quiet, hard working, not uppity like those pesky Negros who keep insisting on equal rights and such -- so maybe we still have a long ways to go. Somehow I don't see a missing black man getting this kind of attention, for example, unless he is a deathrow prisoner at San Quentin or something. But hey, we'll take what we can get, huh?

Postscript: His body was found. The Darwin Awards committee has been notified, though the fact that he already reproduced may disqualify him from that prestigious honor. Meanwhile, Shelton Sanders' body has never been found. But hey, at least we're getting closer to the day when somebody might get interested in the case of a missing black man...


  1. Actually, James Kim is Korean, not Chinese.

  2. Shhh! Don't tell anybody! Besides, don'tcha know that to most of America, all them slant-eyes is just "Chinese"? Hell, half of America still thinks we were fighting "Chinks" in Vietnam!

  3. My understanding is that he was a native of Louisville, Kentucky (and, since Kentucky is still part of the United States of America, that makes him just as much of an American as anyone else born here).


  4. Dave, you haven't been reading the press releases of Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-Nuttysville)! Why, all them funny-lookin' furriners come over here to have babies just so that they can secretely INVADE AMERICA AND TAKE IT OVER FROM THE INSIDE! Sheesh. Next thing you'll be saying is that Michelle "I Hate Myself" Malkin is wrong when she says that the Japanese-Americans were planning the same thing during WWII and thus it was only right and just to round'em all up into concentration camps...

    C'mon, all ya gotta do is go to to know all these things! Sheesh!

  5. Well, there are fruits and nuts everywhere, even in congress (I ran into lots more of them when I lived out west in the land of fruits and nuts, but that was quite a while ago.).

    As for Americans of Japanese ancestry planning to intervene in World War II (Hmm, how appropriate to be discussing that on this particular day!), that apparently resulted from one incident:

    Wonder why the same didn't happen with Americans of German ancestry, or Italian ancestry?

    But, for those of you who really feel like this:
