Singer Arrested For Racism After Singing 'Kung Fu Fighting'!?!

This happened in England. It is stories like this that really make you appreciate first amendment rights. Politicization in this country should be highlighting this because in comparison it could make someone who is afraid an island might "tip over" look smart by comparison. Well, maybe not quite that far...

"A pub singer has been arrested on suspicion of racism for singing the classic chart hit Kung Fu Fighting.

The song, performed by Simon Ledger, 34, is said to have offended two Chinese people as they walked past the bar where he was singing.
But after one of the passers-by reported his routine on Sunday afternoon, Mr Ledger was arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated harassment.
Officers later called Mr Ledger while he was eating in a Chinese restaurant to arrange a meeting.

The singer assumed it was a prank – but he was later arrested and is still under investigation.
