Yellow alert from presidential candidate Fred Thompson, who says Hillary Clinton’s association to illegal fundraising by Asian Americans in 1996 should have made her cautious about accepting $850,000 from fugitive Norman Hsu.
When it came out that the questionable donations came from an Asian American, I had that “oh no, here we go again” reaction whenever something like happens, whether is that whole debacle back in 1996 or the Virginia Tech shooter. Asian Americans start getting painted with one big brush when news like this hits.
I mean, if Norman Hsu had been white, there wouldn’t be a presidential candidate saying you should be careful taking donations from white people.
