But I just couldn't resist this Meta-Stupid!!!!
In this entry, dwa20 is mocked for comparing cancer to slavery. Tubman's Law violation notwithstanding, that's pretty fucking stupid. It's a shitty analogy, and somebody as brilliant as her should realise this.
But, she doesn't. What's worse, when called on it, she goes on to claim that Because she had a black nanny as a child, she has done her part to bring about racial equality.
Now, I've heard everything.
We point out that Strom Thurmond had a black nanny too, and she ignores that in favor of insisting that she has DONE something, dammnit, even though all the "things" she's done involve people other than herself deigning to hire black people as "help".
She also harps incessantly upon the idea that no race should advance at the expense of another, yet repeatedly refuses to answer me when I ask what should be done about the daily "advancement" of white people at the expense of people of color.
I mean, she cares SO MUCH about black people! She wants to see a "colorblind" society, where everyone has the same opportunities! So why can't she answer this question??
I'll tell you why - Because she doesn't care. It is of GREAT concern to her that a black person might be "advanced" at the expense of a white person through Affirmative Action (and strangely, she doesn't have a peep to say about white women benefitting from AA), but she doesn't give much of a shit when the opposite happens.
But none of that matters, Because she helped black people vote 32 years ago! And furthermore, there's nothing creepy, patronizing, or offensive about referring to my friend's multiracial family as a "rainbow family"! And I love my ReeRee!!!!!
P.S. SHE NEVER OWNED SLAVES!!!!!
