Oh my god, this is fucking incredible. Just to post it once again: "And maybe it's good that people keep writing pieces like this, so impossibly shallow and shortcut-minded that the subtext is clear as anything: look how nice we look, as a people, when white gets to be more interesting and minorities get to look white. Look at this freckled, green-eyed future. Look at how beautiful it is to see everything diluted that we used to hate." DAMN thank you for getting right down to the gristle of this revolting "progressive" rhetoric.

@up cubed DDDDDDDDDDDDDDD....: (those are frowny faces + tears, I cannot even with this fetishizing of mixed identities)

ETA: And it's all so so people can smuggly pat themselves on the back for being 'accepting'.

I went to a panel discussion the summer that the two UMich affirmative action cases were handed down by the Supreme Court, and one of my law school's preeminent jackass-conservative-masquerading-as-libertarian professors basically said just this; I think his words were something like, give it enough time and lust will solve the issue of affirmative action.

I stupidly clicked the link, and will now provide you with ample reason not to make the same huge mistake: "tomorrow's America lives among us now in every "Blackanese," "Filatino," "Chicanese" and "Korgentinian"" I died a little inside D:

THANK YOU SO MUCH. "And maybe it's good that people keep writing pieces like this, so impossibly shallow and shortcut-minded that the subtext is clear as anything: look how nice we look, as a people, when white gets to be more interesting and minorities get to look white. Look at this freckled, green-eyed future. Look at how beautiful it is to see everything diluted that we used to hate." So much this. Just so freaking much.

THANK YOU for saying what many of us have avoided saying in our acquaintances' Facebook comments.

Sometimes, you're so anti-racist that you're actually really racist.
