Dr. Mindbender Rufies the Baroness

An amusing story from Britain this week, where a woman by the name of Baroness Marie-Claire Von Alvensleben pled guilty to racially aggravated assault and obstructing a police officer. Quoting this article:

Adam Sumel, a Canadian businessman, was the first victim of her racist tirade in the bar at the Sheraton. He [sic] slapped him across the hands five times and said: ‘Niggers should not be allowed here – you brown people are ruining Britain. [...A] guard, Haliz Hamza, then stepped in. ‘He spoke to the defendant because other guests complained about her behaviour and she clenched both her fists and pounded his chest repeatedly,’ he said. As Mr Hamza escorted Von Alvensleben out of the hotel, she said: ‘You have stayed here ten years, this must be India.’ The baroness carried on with a rant about ‘blacks, Arabs, Asians and Jews’.

‘She believes her drink was spiked at the bar,’ [...] ‘She has no recollection at all as to what happened and says it is out of character for her to say such things.’

One possible explanation is that Dr. Mindbender slipped some of his "Mel Gibson Serum" into the Baroness's wine as a prank. Do you get the joke? If you do, perhaps you are a child of the 80's like me. I loved the G.I. Joe cartoon when I was a little kid. And for some warped reason, I always rooted for Cobra. I hated the egalitarian chaos of the Joes and their Village People dress code. Thinking back, I wonder if I was also rooting for Cobra because the group was virtually all White. The only one I didn't like was Destro, and I think that was because he sounded black! It's strange - I never thought of that until today, but maybe my racism made me anti-Joe. Is it possible that a young child would have such a well-developed sense of racial antagonism as to discriminate against non-White cartoons? Or have I simply always been evil, and racism is simply the most evil thing there is in today's society, hence I am racist by default? Whatever the case, evil people always have more fun, as do racists. And with that in mind:

Welcome to Cobra, Baroness von Alvensleben!
