No wonder Time Magazine is on its last leg.

Can anyone read this horseshit and not laugh? Sweet Jesus. We do need a cleansing.


If there is one hopeful note amidst all the anguish and recrimination from the acquittal of George Zimmerman, it’s that growing numbers of white people have come to appreciate whiteness for what it is: an unearned set of privileges. And as a result of that dawning awareness, it’s become possible to imagine a day when that structure of privilege is dismantled – by white people.

Recall that immediately after the killing of Trayvon Martin, people of every race took to the Internet to declare “I Am Trayvon Martin.” They wore hoodies. They proclaimed solidarity. That was a well-meaning and earnest attempt to express empathy, but it also obscured the core issue, which is that Martin died not because he was wearing a hoodie but because he was wearing a hoodie while black. Blackness was the fatal variable.

And so now, post-verdict, a more realistic meme has taken root. On Tumblr and Facebook and elsewhere there is a new viral phenomenon: “We Are Not Trayvon Martin” (emphasis mine). Huge numbers of white Americans are posting testimonials and images to declare that it is precisely because they are not black that they have never had to confront the awful choices Martin faced when Zimmerman began to pursue him.

This isn’t about empathy or the posture of equivalency that empathy can tempt us to assume. It’s about owning up to the unequal privilege of being non-black and saying, in essence, “I Am George Zimmerman.” And because I am George Zimmerman [even though Zimmerman is Hispanic -ed.], I get to have my fears trump reality. I get get-out-of-jail-free cards. I get a presumption of innocent victimhood, no matter what my own acts or attitudes.

You know I read a lot. Especially things that have to do with history. I find that shit fascinating. In fact, I don’t know if you know this or not, Sicilians were spawned by ****ers. It’s a fact. Sicilians have black blood pumping through their hearts. If you don’t believe me, you can look it up. Hundreds and hundreds of years ago the Moors conquered Sicily. And Moors are ****ers. Way back then, Sicilians were like the wops in northern Italy. They all had blonde hair and blue eyes. But, once the Moors moved in there, they changed the whole country. They did so much ****ing with the Sicilian women, huh, that they changed the whole blood-line forever, that’s why blonde hair and blue eyes to black hair and dark skin. I find it absolutely amazing to think that to this day, hundreds of years later, Sicilians still carry that ****er gene. I’m quoting history. It’s written. It’s a fact. It’s written. Your ancestors were ****ers. Your great, great, great, great, great-grandmother ****ed a ****er, and she had a half-****er kid. That is a fact. Now tell me, am I lyin’? Cuz you, you’re part eggplant.

Actually, they're made up of many ethnicities including Canaanites/Phoenicians/Carthaginians Greek and even the Spanish conquered it. It was a land of immigrants and emigrants. The indigent people got absorbed, but they were not from northern Italy. Brock is starting only from a later date.

But I am familiar with the claim that they're not considered white by some. I have family there who are very dark, but their hair is very straight black and they have Caucasian features. Mediterranean people are also dark. My mom was a blonde haired blued eye Dutch.
But there are blondes on the side of the family that are Sicilian on both sides.

I still have no white guilt, as an American, because I am not one of the people that enslaved blacks many years here in America.
