People of Color at Yale

Of all bogus politically correct phrases, I think “people of color” is the most reliably emetic. What, after all, does it mean? Who gets to be a “person of color”? Not me, apparently, though I like to think of myself as a pleasing pinkish hue (I’m not talking about political complexion, merely my Crayola designation). To me, “people of color” is a bit like “native American,” only worse. I always identify myself as “native American” because (or so I have been reliably assured) I first came into this world just outside of Cleveland, Ohio, than which no more American place can be imagined. Why do American Indians get to be “native Americans” while I, whose natality was smack dab in the middle of America, must be content who some less privileged rubric? And why do blacks and other assorted ethnicities get to be “people of color,” with all the spurious rights and privileges pertaining thereto, while I, who most certainly possess a color, am left out of the great politically correct grievance-mongering sweepstakes?

    First a coven of skinny white racist girls wouldn’t invite her to their Halloween party, that might not have even occurred.
    Then somebody left a poop swastika, which is a medium I have not seen actual white supremacist work in, but was Tawana Brawley’s favorite medium for writing KKK on herself when she hoaxed her “hate crime” that put Al Shaprton on the map.

    Black girl lies a lot.

      Poop Swastika. That’s something that the Tate Modern would be interested in acquiring.for their galleries.

    O/T There’s a riot going on.
    Christmas Island migrant detention centre: fences ripped down, fires lit, guards pulling back from their posts. Reportedly sparked by the death of an Iranian Kurd who escaped and was found dead at the bottom of a cliff. Rioters are 501 detainees, criminals released from jail. Asylum seekers have barricaded themselves in as they don’t get on with the 501 detainees.

      It’s an island Fer cris sakes. 52 sq miles. Just pull off and wait a year or three. Problem solved.

    People of intelligence sometimes gather to enjoy a coffee of morning together at my local Timmy’s. They are a diverse group, including racially, yet I have never heard a single person of intelligence use the term “people of colour”, probably because it is a stupid term. There are of course times when a person of intelligence swallows a pill of sarcasm before actually employing the term “person of colour” for the entertainment of other persons of intelligence in the vicinity. Hilarity normally ensues, as people of intelligence “lose it” over the incredible stupidity of the contemporary world.

      I’m a person of colour. It’s a kinda whitish pink, but hell, it’s a colour.
