silly... yet a sensitivity to "subtle" discrimination...

... is often used to justify an ax to grind by any group out there looking for a behavior that supports their paranoia.

I had a (now ex) girlfriend who fancied herself a feminist and told me I was a rank chauvinist who insulted her on a daily basis by opening doors for her.

Politicians point their finger at other politicians all the time, building up mole hills into mountains.

Religious leaders do the same.

It is human nature. People decide there is a problem and then look for behaviors that confirm their suspicions.

Don't get me wrong... there are tons of problems in the world, but eating PBJ isn't a symptom of one.

all of my children

if they weren't buying lunch that day, it was PBJ in a bag instead. Is there a whiteness PBJ vs blackness PBJ? Wonder Bread vs Pumpernickle?

Pumpernickel PBJ ? (shudder)

I like Pumpernickel, but not with P & J

And this principal is an educator.

I know she is not typical of all our educators around the country, but can you imagine a generation of leaders and workforce that she has reared?

God help us!

You just don't understand how important it is to keep racism

alive...or to make people think it is. Racism is an important tool that some folks cannot let slip from their hands. For many, it's their only livelihood and all they are trained for. Racism is a great job creator too. Most of all, it's a political tool that, when used with the right timing, can get someone into or keep them out of office. How dare anyone say we should give it up.
