Quote, unquote: We are the world, we are the Asians...

"There was recognition among students at UBC that this was a once in a generation opportunity to come together in solidarity over one of the defining issues of our time. This was our Woodstock."
-- UBC MFA creative writing student, Tetsuro Shigematsu, commenting in a Vancouver Sun story on how annoyed students responded to the controversial "Too Asian?" article in Maclean's magazine by creating a video cover of the classic '80s charity single, 'We Are the World'."

Hey DB--Tried to post a link to this item on my Facebook page but it won't let me because it says your blog has been identified as "abusive" or "spammy." I filled out the form that pops up to argue that it isn't spammy or abusive content, but thought others on FB might want to do the same. Hugely irritating!
