In February 2012, comedian Brad Belanger took the stage to slag off a mixed couple who had been heckling previous acts. Whether they deserved being put down publicly is one thing but the jokes used were racist in nature. He used terms such as “Asian escort” to describe the female and came out with pathetic jokes such as “How much do you cost?” and “You don’t speak English, you don’t speak English,” even imitating the way she spoke.
This is an absolutely pathetic performance from a even more pathetic person who obviously doesn’t have the brain to make any other jokes than racial ones. He should try that with a African American or Latino woman next time, see where that gets him. The good news is that the racism was picked up by several viewers. My hat goes off to those brave people who actually drew the line between stopping hecklers and just being an idiot.
William is a very simple person who can't sit at a desk for an extended period of time without going insane. He is currently studying law but hopes to find a career with more than just daily paperwork. He believes that humans are blind to their own bias and often reason is merely a state of mind. He also doens't mind being contraversial at times, believing that accepted notions should be challenged to encourage greater thinking. He has a hunger for going off the beaten track and doing something other than the usual asian pursuits (karaoke!), and is passionate about hiking and extreme sports. He likes to kick back to music and a good movie now and then and is proud of having never been drunk in his life (or broken a bone!). Eventually, he wants to have made a difference to the world somehow, and strongly believes the maxim that glory is fleeting but obscurity is forever. Oh, and he likes to blog on 8asians and brag about himself in bios.
