    Being White Is OK?

    Just now on local news. Clark College in Vancouver WA had a terrible racist incident! Hand written posters appeared on campus stating "It's OK to be white"!!! How RACIST!!! A Cuban student was interviewed who was afraid. She appeared as white as I do. Many of us are a blend of all 3 races. White, Black, Asian. Why can't we be one race? Human.

    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    Wouldn't that make you a humanist?

    Being racist is not an admirable quality, but it is simply a prejudice that is no better or no worse than most of the other forms of prejudice. Mostly, it is a prejudice that may prevent a person from choosing the best person to perform a particular function. We see that failing in nearly every person we meet, either because it exists or because our own prejudice against prejudiced people causes us to see them where they don't exist.

    There was a time when we could see the humor in this particular human condition. We are becoming a humorless society because we fear being accused of being perfectly normal human beings.

    I am NOT a racist. I hate EVERYBODY with equal enthusiasm and vigor.

    I started identifying as a blonde. That way I can say I am whatever race I feel like at the moment, and people will think I am just a ditzy blonde! There is a method to my madness lol.

    I did the same about 30 years ago.
