Saw this in the listings and considered it. Glad now I didn't watch :)

To: upchuck

It wasn't easy. I strive to be open-minded and cool. And in REAL LIFE it isn't that hard. I have BLACK and NEGRO friends.

I dated a BLACK girl (and a latino girl and a Japanese/Indian mix and a full-blooded Mexican) and she'd drag me to Indian festivals (back in the 80s)... she had a baby boy and we'd kid each other about whether he'd be raised black or white (neither of us cared about the point... it was almost forplay. The argument leading to sex)

But the freaking media portrays people like me as the enemy. White and decendant of slave-trading bastards. Wrong.

My family had nothing to do with the slave trade. If reparations ever become law, can I sue those who benefit from reparations? I can trace my family tree to 1700s Ireland & Germany. We were in America long before Hitler came along (about 1880), but people still point out the German in me, as if I'm related to Nazis.



Oh well.
