I haven't done a BAD COP, NO DONUT in a while. Let's catch up, shall we?


Tax The Rich

Got around $300,000 handy? Then you can afford to drift a Rolls-Royce Wraith around your stately manor too.

Tax the fucking rich, gawddammit.

Fall is my favorite time of year.

We had a lovely red sky this morning. Since I'm not on the water, I can say that.

Shout out to all the sailors out there, take care.

If anything, racism breeds blindness...


It really does. It starts at childhood and can keep a person blind deep into adulthood. When someone belongs to the privileged group for which racism serves, it creates both an unwillingness to address the conditions from which they benefit and elicit feelings of being targeted whenever the subject is brought up, no matter how innocuously.

Not once did I ask them to take responsibility for the content of the racist cartoons that they said that they've enjoyed as a child. They personalized those cartoons all on their own.

Not once did I tell them that they being racist in their responses. Yet, they expressed offense at being called "racist," when the accusation never ever lodged against them.

Not once did ask them for anything. I only expected honest responses and I only received one, while the rest remained as blind as ever.

Yes, eventually I did get one of them to admit that he/she didn't care about the patently offensive content of classic cartoons like Tom and Jerry and Bugs Bunny. Even if this same person denied that the exchange was somewhat heated while they were busy hurling expletives my way.

But that's just another fine example of denial, is it not? Isn't blindness the form of denial that's taking place here?

Of course, it is.
