Now that you've read the article, the best defense that you can come up with is your conjecture w ...
For your information, I read the article long before it even showed up here in CD. It's been circulating on Facebook for a week, remember? As for my "conjecture", the writing styles of the two apology letters are totally different, meaning two different people wrote them. It's not hard to write something on somebody else's Facebook page. I stand by what I said.
So what if the ads are targeting Chinese? We have ads which target Chinese, here in Vancouver, too. Also Japanese, Vietnamese, Malay, Punjabi, Hindu, etc. If that demographic represents a large section of the population, then you're going to have ads which target those people. Mind you, these ads were written in poor taste, and probably could have been designed better, but I doubt it was intentional racism. Illinois is not exactly known to be a hotbed of white supremacy.
The ad and the letter is targeting the Chinese students not because of their conduct or behavior either in school or in buses but only because they're "Chinese".
That shows bigotry and prejudice. It does not prove racism. Racism is fuelled by hate. Too many people these days throw the racism card around like it's confetti because they're too stupid to understand the difference.
