When you just don’t fit the bill

The media loves firsts.

It’s obsessively promoting the first gay governor. The first two Muslim anti-Semitic women in the House, one of whom is accused of marrying her brother (the media obviously isn’t mentioning that part), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest elected dimwit.

It’s oddly uninterested in the first Korean-American woman in the House.

Well, not so oddly. Rep. Young Kim is a Republican.

    One thing’s for sure: as long as the inmates are in charge of the asylum (The House), you won’t run out of material.

    Every cloud has a silver lining.

    Eh, it’s not just the Republican party thing.

    I learned about this in high school. There were four academic tracks in descending order of difficulty: AP (advanced placement), AC (accelerated), standard, and remedial (I forget what nice name they called it, but it was remedial). Out of 575 kids in my year there were about 70-80 in various AP or AC classes (as in a gal might be in AP English, but standard math, etc), and a core of 30 of us who were in AP everything. The local newspaper wrote an article about how wonderful it was that 13 of 30 (43%!!!) were minorities. Yep, 11 Chinese, 1 Korean, 1 (dot) Indian; these details the article failed to mention. (There was also a German/Korean guy, but his surname was German so he apparently didn’t count.)

    Anyway, when college applications came around, and “diversity” scholarships were being offered, not a single one of The Yellow Horde* was offered a scholarship for being not white. (Which is as it should be, but a valuable lesson in the hypocrisy of the racebaiters.) So while I am not gender-fluid, I am apparently minority-fluid. (Does that make me fashionable?)

    That all is a long way of saying that Young Kim is obviously NOT a minority. (Maybe east Asians need to burn down their neighborhoods, commit outrageous amounts of violent crime and just plain stupid crime, suck disproportionately much from the welfare teat, etc.) Nevertheless the racialists will call her out as a “traitor” for failing to show solidarity with Persons of Color if she votes “wrong”.

    *Yellow Horde: I found out years later that our teachers called us The Yellow Horde among themselves, this despite being 80% far-left progressives — and boy I had some good discussions with the AP American History teacher (a white dude from a rich family, probably not surprisingly) — for values of “good”. Anyway, I laughed my ass off when I learned about the Yellow Horde thing, but some people (whites, again not surprisingly) were quite upset.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
