30. Yes there is a "we" Pontius.

 

A "we", who has for so long distanced itself from the bad behaviour of others, that those others feel free to act entirely as they please.

Becasuse:
  • "WE" would rather keep our friends than speak up and call them the arseholes they are when they make disparaging comments or jokes about: wimin, niggers, coons, slopes, slants, polacks, micks, spicks, kikes, wogs, wops, ragheads, and on, and on and on and depressingly on;
  • "WE" repeat the same stupid hateful jokes ourselves to score kudos;
  • "WE" go with the flow and help put the boots (figurative and literal) into the "poof" who dares to enter a "real men's bar";
  • "WE" join in on the humiliation of the "strange kid" rather than risk having that humiliation turned upon us;

WE're responsible, because WE haven't done enough to stop it.
