    This illustrates white obsession with race how?
    Not denying the basic premise, I just need a little help.

  2. Weeeeeellll, it's Friday, which made me feel like pulling some legs . . . Jokes ain't funny when you explain them . . . But I will say that it's been pointed out many times that America's focus on race obscures its understanding of, say, social class.

  3. Sorry Macon. I'm sure it was funny. Sometimes I miss jokes. . . right over the head.

    Yes! I agree. It's about race, class, color, gender and all sorts of social variables.

    OH!, I get it. . . poking fun at yourself. Good. My
    #1 rule. Don't take yourself too serious.
