Malaysian Indian UK Lawsuit Ends Up on Yahoo "Odd" News

If you've been keeping up here at all, you know my two good, close, personal friends of Indian heritage in Malaysia are in the midst of a civil rights struggle with their majority Malay government not terribly dissimilar to the one between African-Americans and the majority Redneck governments of the American south in the 1950's and 1960's.

What I didn't know, however, was that this story constituted "Odd News", but, sure enough, I open up my overwhelming number of RSS feeds this morning and I find the Reuters story "Malaysian sues Britain over ethnic Indians' woes" filed under "Odd News".

The gist of the story is that there is a lawyer named Waytha Moorthy who is petitioning Queen Elizabeth II to appoint lawyers in the attempt to secure damages from England to the tune of $4 trillion for "colonial-era labour schemes" that brought the ancestors of the ethnic Indians to Malaysia in the first place.

Hmmmmm ... it will be interesting to see how far it goes, because it would of course leave open the possibility of the members of the African-American community suing England and Spain for dragging THEIR ancestors to North America and the Carribbean as outright chattel.

Of course the Malaysian Indians could also use an advocate parallel to Denmark Vesey who would not only advocate equal rights but also post huge screeds about the Illuminati and even being in AGREEMENT with DAVID DUKE ...

yeah, i guess it's pretty odd, anytime anyone challenges the status quo.

The lawyer in question has been detained by our communist-dictatorship government.

There are police blockades for every entry into the city. Traffic has been backed up for miles. They've been roughing up Indians.

This Sunday is likely going to be bloody.

The police have already turned the water cannons on the crowd. It promises to turn very violent!
