Just a reminder for those of you who believe we live in a post-racial color-blind society.

The Indiana student sparked widespread outrage this week when he posted a video listing all the reasons he wouldn’t want to be Asian.

“Most Asians look alike,” Hendrickson says in the video. “I don’t want to look like everyone else.” The video also includes dumb remarks like “If I was an Asian man, chances are I’d probably be with an Asian woman and guess what? I don’t find Asian women attractive. Kill me.”

Hendrickson’s initial apology, after the video went viral:

“Well, I’m hated by the entire Asian race apparently over a joke #bummer.”
