Thanks for the endorsement, Paul! He gave me a shout-out in the first 10 minutes 🙂 Ramzpaul interview with Shaine Scalph and Petite Nicoco of Hapa Supremacy. They discuss the controversy over his tweet about Grace Park on Battlestar Galactica vs. Kelly Tran on Star Wars and other pop culture things.
Thanks to Cherries blog for this article.

Thank you for acknowledging our efforts [Viet Thuc Forum & Readers] to honor the young American soldiers who fought for the freedom of others [in Vietnam] and have shown the “humane and compassionate side” during their “tour of duty”. War is not only a conflict justification, but also a situation to test our human values while at the edge of losing them… LuuNguyenDat, PhD

I appreciate your attention to this matter. I don’t understand why anyone would want to dismantle their own good standing in society.
Today’s political environment is one where the concept of “Social Justice” has become so ingrained in many people’s minds as to render the perception of being oppressed a reason to be entitled to various forms of compensation. As a result, public apologies; favorable legislation, and demands for forms of financial reparations can be reasonably demanded simply by citing the existence of disparities on basis of race, gender, class, and a variety of other forms of interpersonal distinction. In such an environment, it is unsurprising that statistical evidence of these supposed disparities is often interpreted in such a manner as to maximize the supposed grievance of the oppressed identity groups.
A clear example of this behavior becomes evident when reading a 15-year old article written in 2002 by “anti-racist essayist” Tim Wise. In this article, Tim Wise attempts to establish the oppressed nature of African-Americans by arguing against what he refers…

I think it’s very apt that Barack Obama got a HACK to do his portrait. I don’t care if it’s accepted in the art world that artists have laborers. Artists like Mark Kostabi and Jeff Koons started that mass production art and were highly criticized by the art world at the time for being hacks. They still ARE hacks. It’s not true art. The artist must do it themselves. That’s what makes it valuable and one of a kind. Andy Warhol treads a fine line. He at least had an original, done by him, then he had prints, of lesser value. I can’t really call him a hack. But I will say he started that trend of cheap thrill pop art.
