karjack pointed out that it's blogging-against-racism week.

What am I going to say here?
I'll say that I'm a person who finds the concept of racism repugnant, but also finds himself spewing bullshit that is obviously racist, from a neutral perspective.
I'll say that I'm someone who wishes he was capable of divorcing the native racism of the white male viewpoint of greater society from his own perspective.

I'll say that really, there's way the fuck too much racism out there, and y'all ought to stop it.

I'll say that everyone out there who's not a white male asshole should tell me if I've said something that offended, and why it offended- I want to be smarter about this.
