Hey, it's International Blog Against Racism Week (ibarw)

I really don't have that much to say. It's quite simple. All the world needs is really to just follow the advice of Wyld Stallyns:
Party on, dudes, and be excellent to each other.

What the world really doesn't need is mass quantities of sociological gobbledygook like intersectionality, or wallowing in fetishistic anti-racism, where white people must be terribly careful not to agree too strongly with the POC, since that is a symptom of wanting your white guilt kissed away and forgiven (of course, disagreeing with POC is almost unthinkable). I dunno what all these anti-racist activists do with their activism, but that community is a wankfest.

More Wyld Stallyns, less wank. That's all I ask, people.

You know, the Wyld Stallyns were 100% right.

Party on, dudes!

Blech.

When will people learn, wallowing in a stagnant morass of bigoted bile, pseudo-science, and victimhood wont bring about the end of hatred and ignorance.

I wont deny the existence of "white privilege" or institutionalized racism. Still, I'm not certain mankind will find the answer to deeply ingrained social inequity amongst the flame-filled threads of a massive LJ wankfest (complete with the requisite finger-pointing, ass-kissing, and tripe-laced invectives).

Then again, perhaps my "privileged ass" is showing.

Come to a store with me sometime, like a department store. And see all the people asking me for help. As a kid, I thought this was because I looked smart; irony of ironies. Eventually it gets old, smiling and telling the next person, no sorry I don't work here, I'm shopping. It's a slight inconvenience in life, but just one of many the privileged never deal with daily. Race divides reality, I'm completely used to getting followed by police if they see me driving in Brentwood, used to getting asked who I clean for as I ride the elevator to my fancy condo apt, used to getting passed by yellow cabs, I'm used to my color alone equating a class. I find it interesting that you live in the black beverly hills (across the street be John Singleton, etc). The definition of gentrification, but as I tell folks, you guys are good people, as are most every Enigman I've met. Not racist, educated and fun. I look forward to more of said types mixing with types who've never met you, and changing their opinions about all the "Whites" they've met who were different. I hope you do realize that many black folks haven't had that opportunity in the last 45 years since we've been "equals"; it's getting better all the time. I think that's the #1 best thing about Obama, more people become aware of what "that" looks like.
