"go back to india!"

Did anyone else see the report on ABC's World News with Charles Gibson last night, about the post-Hurricane Ike situation in Texas? The segment featured a cop in a heated argument with a South Asian driver over a roadblock on the way back to Galveston. As the motorist drives away, the officer tells him to "Go back to India!" Straight up.

Tell me what you really feel, officer. There's brief video of the moment here. And there are currently over 2000 comments on the segment at the ABC News site here. When pushed past frustration, the cop's true colors suddenly become apparent. That's racist! (Thanks, Marlow.)
