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.

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 white 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.
Brock was quoting one of the best movies ever made you silly bird! Lighten up! Sheesh! Rep for Brock.

I am fairly certain Buc was somehow time-transported via a wormhole from 1877 to the present and doesn't yet realize it.

Uhm, logic would dictate that I never saw that movie. "Seriously" though? What are you ASSuming here? It was just a comment in response providing information. Still, I am familiar with this claim about Sicilians....it doesn't just come from a movie you silly and angry sounding man.

I googled part of the quote, and found this True Romance. I never even heard of it.

Oh ferchrissakes. Just watch the scene. True Romance is a classic and you owe it to yourself to watch it.

Backstory on scene. Two kids 'fall in love' at the movies, boy a roustabout, girl a hooker. They decide to run away together but the girl wants to get her stuff back from her pimp's place, except the boy grabs a suitcase of cocaine.

The guy being interrogated is the boy's dad.

Not surprised you haven't seen it, since Larry the cable guy isn't in it.

I've always been ambivalent about seeing it because I knew Christian Slater was a lead and therefore figured it couldn't be good. I just looked it up and saw the top-notch supporting cast--Dennis Hopper, Val Kilmer, Gary Oldman, Brad Pitt, Christopher Walken , James Gandolfini I'll have to check it out.
