I am once again asking RM to take its white fragility and paranoia to any one of your safe space threads.

Man... imagine putting any other color in there but "white". Racism is real.

I put in for another job. I'll probably lose out to a black person. Mostly because I suck.

Some of these things could be tragic if they weren't so inconsequential.

I imagine black people get pretty fucking sick of shit like Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben's and Confederate statues and rebel flags and buildings named for slave holders and buildings named for confederate heroes and jokes about watermelon and Gone with the Wind and being called a thug and Jesus, I don't even know what else a black person puts up with everyday.

PepsiCo wants to do one little thing that sheds light on all the bullshit? Only a dick would have a problem with it.

I don't think anyone has a problem with it but it is pretty trivial

Yeah I honestly don't care. Get rid of/change everything. But I also think people are being too sensitive.

How many different types of white people were portrayed on TV at the time? Hundreds?

How many different types of black people are portrayed at the grocery store? 2 mammies, a rice farmer, and 3 pit masters? How many of those are owned by corporations and how many black people sit on the boards of those corporations?

Quakers tended to be vocal abolitionists. Or rather, many of the vocal abolitionists were Quakers.
