the geekspeak heroes list: Jimmy Wong

So now you’ve probably seen the video blog that UCLA undergrad Alexandra Wallace put up complaining about “Asians in the library”, calling their family members to make sure everything was OK after the terrible devastation in Japan. The video went viral, a nation wept for its future, and poli sci majors everywhere wondered exactly what kind of politics this girl was studying.

The video is here, if you want to watch it, but be warned – it’s hard to get through without some sort of hard liquor.

Since then, Wallace has been roundly criticized for her actions, been the subject of numerous editorials, issued apologies, and has decided not to attend UCLA anymore citing “death threats”. We here at Geekspeak do not condone the use of death threats, even if the person being targeted is really, really stupid. We’re much more “peace and understanding” kinds of people.

Just like Jimmy Wong, who responded to Wallace’s baffling rant with the most disarming display of all: love.

Jimmy Wong, for your upstanding courage and character (as well as your velvety-smooth voice and roguish good looks) you are our first inductee into The GeekSpeak Heroes List.
