I try to be an easy going pragmatic brother, but dammit if I am not going to have to start the revolution all by myself.
If you have a white friend, kindly explain to them that white is not the default setting.
I am left handed, and I live in a right handed world. I accept that things are going to be uncomfortable (screwing things in, writing on a chalk board or using magic markers). Ultimately, I adjust to it.
I am a Black man, and I live in a nation in which many white folk operate as though white (White, Protestant, Heterosexual, English-speaking and Patriarchal, for those keeping full track) is the default setting and everyone else must adjust.
Not gonna be able to swallow that.
Geraldine Ferraro, (and the Clinton Campaign by extension) is clinging to the default setting, a setting she admits was waved temporarily in order to provide a certain noteworthy stature to a futile campaign being waged against a popular incumbent.
The MSM has
allowed perpetrated a deeply flawed meme regarding 35 years of Clinton experience versus the a speech given by Barack Obama in 2002.
There should be a laugh track everytime she says 35 years of experience.
On its face, Senator Clinton has a unique resume that represents an intelligent and accomplished professional woman with one foot in corporate law and one foot in public policy.
Meanwhile people sniff at Obama’s career as a community activist and Illinois State Senator.
But THIS, boys and girls, is what Black folk deal with. THIS is why we are so “hostile” and “sensitive”.
See, now I am too irritated to even finish.
