True Colors

"We got to do something about these Asians coming in and opening up businesses and dirty shops, They ought to go. I'm going to say that right now. But we need African-American businesspeople to be able to take their places, too."

--Ward 8 D.C. Councilman Marion Barry
I'm guessing Asians don't vote for Marion Barry. Or does he harbor true racial prejudice? Why doesn't he steal the businesses and dirty shops from Asians and give them to random Africa-Americans in his district - worked out well for Zimbabwe.

They really call his district Ward 8? It sounds like a wing at a psychiatric hospital.

As documented by my Twitter curation start-up, Barry posted photos of supposedly hazardous stores -- including Chinese restaurants surrounded not by trash or toxic waste, but by Plexiglas barriers and reinforced doors. Barry explained that Asian-owned businesses that had the audacity to protect themselves from crime were "lowering standards" in his constituents' communities.

In Barry's bizarre world, law-abiding entrepreneurs who take steps to prevent robberies are the ones who threaten Ward 8's quality of life -- not the armed thugs who threaten honest livelihoods in the first place. Vigilant wealth creators taking care of their families? Scourge of D.C. Profanity-spewing drug addicts inciting hatred against successful achievers of the American Dream? Model citizens!

Crazy Barry doesn't just need another round of rehab. He needs a reality check.
Maybe it is a hospital wing.
