Please reread the entire article. It's not just the ad but their letter "explaining" the ad that's  ...

The apology letters were written on Facebook. Unfortunately, anyone could have written the letter about the University of Illinois. An employee who was PO'd because of the high number of International students, perhaps. The first letter sounds like it came from somebody lower down on the bus company employee list. The second letter, which expresses shame and regret, sounds more like it came from an upper-management person.

Anybody who "joins" a Facebook page can write on that page, so the first letter could have been written by anyone. I highly doubt that a company would write something that bigoted and prejudicial in a public apology. Companies are adamant that any messages to the public be politically correct, and represent the company in the best light possible. This is why they hire PR people and Media liaisons.
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.
I love sarcasm. It's like punching someone in the head ... only with words

No, it doesn't have, and it will never have trains that run faster than that in China.

The USA does have high speed rail.  There are many definitions of high speed rail in use, however it's generally held by most regulatory bodies that any train that reaches speeds of 240km/h (150 mph) should be considered to be a high speed train.

Using the definition above there is one train system in the USA that is "high speed" and that's the Acela Express that runs between Boston and Washington DC via NYC.  

seneca was right in this case.

Here's the Wikipedia entry on the Acela Express:

The Acela Express is Amtrak's flagship service along the Northeast Corridor in the Northeast United States between Washington, D.C. and Boston via 14 intermediate stops including Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York City. The route contains segments of high-speed rail, and Acela Express trains are the fastest trainsets in the Americas; they attain 150 mph (240 km/h) on 28 miles (45 km) of the route.

Acela operates along routes that are used by freight and slower regional passenger traffic, and only reaches the maximum allowed speed of the tracks along some sections, with the fastest peak speed along segments between Mansfield, Massachusetts and Richmond, Rhode Island. Acela trains use tilting technology, which helps control lateral centripetal forces, allowing the train to travel at higher speeds on the sharply curved North East Corridor without disturbing passengers. The high-speed operation occurs mostly along the 226-mile (364 km) route from New York's Penn Station to Washington DC's Union Station, with a fastest scheduled time of 2 hours and 45 minutes and an average speed of 82 mph (132 km/h), including time spent at intermediate stops.

There you go. Seneca was right: there are high-speed trains (that use tilting technology) in the USA.

That means USA is number one. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!
