The Ethnic Aisle

I learned long ago that you can, for the most part, talk to people frankly about race in a small setting, so long as it's not:

1) A public setting; and

2) You avoid the topics of hair, nails, and asses.

Such a clever name, The Ethnic Aisle.

I really liked a lot of those articles.

I do want to issue a plea to my fellow white people, though, to declare a moratorium of at least 100 years on articles, books, poems, dance pieces, art installations, pies, what have you that express your Deep Feelings about how your {$insert racial/ethnic identity here} nanny/housekeeper/yard man/chauffeur/school janitor taught you the true meaning of diversity. Please, I'm begging you, fellow white folks.
