Speaking of stupid crap, what about the published report that 1 in 4 Americans have negative attitudes towards the Chinese (via Ern)? 25%?! And this poll was taken before that whole spy plane deal. I don’t think anyone can argue that racial prejudice is rational or constructive. Maybe it’s the Asian friends I do have, or the fact that I work in a multi-national company based in Singapore that tempers me; but, I simply cannot understand these kinds of opinions from otherwise intelligent human beings. The mind boggles.
