Another night of going out and being the only non-white person in the room. Listen, I'm not saying it's a bad thing, I'm only saying that it gets tiring after awhile. And yeah, sometimes it's hard. Put yourself in my shoes: walking in a room and having it filled with nothing but dark-skinned people. Probably freak you out, right? If not freak you out, would you not notice it? Would noticing it make you a racist? How about you ladies out there: what if you walked into a room full of big, burly, white biker guys? Would you not make note of it? Sure you would. Does this mean you'd leave? Maybe not. All I'm saying is that in this bubble of liberalism, filled with skinny white people who are so "enlightened"... try to remember that you're not the bees knees. There are other folk out there, you know. And some of them folk don't have it as easy as you do. Some of them folk don't have the luxury of being viewed upon as "normal". At least the Republicans are open and vocal about their bigotry. Kidding!
