I have watched all the related videos; and I have followed through the progress of the event.
I strongly feel that I have to sign the petitions, and I have signed both petitions.
If you haven't signed, please sign it. It's really important for us and our kids.If you are interested, you can read through the articles from here:WenXueCity's page about 辱华脱口秀事件:http://bbs.wenxuecity.com/kidstable/美国会首位华裔女议员周美心发表国会公开信公开谴责JK和ABC: http://bbs.wenxuecity.com/kidstable/59154.htmlThanks!

Please watch this video and if you do not feel comfortable after watching it, then please sign this petition (it is a different petition from the whitehouse one). Once it reaches 10,000, Councilmen Kansen Chu will take it to talk to ABC fact to face. This is what he said this afternoon in front of the San Jose city hall.

San Jose Councilmember Kansen Chu Hosts Community Rally Against Hate Speech
and Violence in our Communities
Councilmember Chu responds to October 16, 2013 Jimmy Kimmel "Kids Table"
San José, CA –In light of the October 16, 2013 "Kids Table" segment of the
Jimmy Kimmel show, Councilmember Chu will join community leaders for a
rally against the use of hate crimes, hate speech and the promotion of
violence on Friday, November 1, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at San José City Hall.
Everyone is invited to participate in the rally.
In the "Kids Table" segment, Jimmy Kimmel was discussing the recent federal
government shutdown with four children. During the segment, one child
declared than a way of solving the United States' debt obligations to China
is to "kill all the Chinese." Mr. Kimmel's response to the child was
irresponsible, unnecessary, and unacceptable when he stated, "That's an
interesting idea. Should we allow the Chinese to live?"
"As the adult at the table, I expected Mr. Kimmel to have taken the
opportunity to show that violence, hate speech against anybody, not just the
Chinese, is never a joke or acceptable for a comedy sketch," said Chu. "Mr.
Kimmel’s inaction during the segment of the show and ABC Network’s
decision to not edit out this segment for being inappropriate makes both
parties responsible for teaching our children that killing others is
In addition to joining him for the rally, Councilmember Chu is asking the
community for their support in writing letters to ABC Network, urging the
network to terminate the show, fire Jimmy Kimmel, and establish policy to
prevent similar instances from occurring in the future.

Hi all,A couple of us have posted the link of WhiteHouse petition against JK/ABC's killing all Chinese commenting on the nightly talking show. Have you signed up to support?I watched all the videos, including the original video and the video for Jimmy to apologize... In my opinion, Jimmy's apology is not sincere at all. We should go after him/ABC/Disney harder.Here is an article that has very good points: http://blog.wenxuecity.com/myblog/60338/201310/24025.htmlFurthermore, there will be an event on San Jose:
