In the Chinese-language newspaper racks on my street

So I made a quick trip to do some shopping and pick up a package, and as I passed two sets of newspaper racks, I noticed something weird: in the free Chinese-language racks, slabs of wood were stuck inside the big plastic clips that hold the display copies on the door. On one side, "No CHY-NA" written in marker, "No-No CHY-NA" on the other. Pulled 'em all out and hucked 'em in the trash quickly, for fear that someone might see me holding one and get the wrong idea. Unsurprisingly, the racks were otherwise empty.

On this block in a predominantly Asian-American community, anti-maskers have stapled their incoherent rants to trees, and Lyndon La Rouche cultists set up a table outside the post office for a few days every election year, and nobody gives a rat's ass.

This is different. This is something every community needs to stamp out on sight. I'll be filing a report with the police after this, and dropping a message to the mayor. It's a small town; this asshole/these assholes try again they be very lucky if the cops get them first.

3. Sure, I'll hang around until 3AM for the coward(s) to come along and then flee

Fun fact: In some communities a police report doesn't have to even involve a crime-in-progress...just a situation authorities need to be aware of.

5. Where are you getting theft from?

Sounds to me like someone vandalized the racks with abandoned (offensive) objects that can be easily removed and tossed in the trash.

9. Since they were placed in the Chinese Language racks -

I highly doubt they were placed there by the owners.

4. I lived in Japan as a child. We had Japanese maids, did all the touristy things. I begged my

Parents to adopt a Japanese sister for me. Also, lived in Hawaii for six years and was extremely close to my Japanese ballet teacher. I'm horrified by how people are treating our uncaucasian members of society. Racism, hatred for whatever isn't exactly like "us," is sickening. It's just overwhelming how many people thrive on fears. Churches could help. They don't.

7. That is appalling. Another outrage we can lay at the feel of he-who-shall-not-be-named.
