It's true, see?

Awesome snark (on what is, obviously, a serious topic). They should have included a unicorn in the banner.

Haha, that has a faint aroma of 'The Onion' about it. I approve.

i posted this link on my blog a few weeks ago and one commenter wrote something like, "really? you think racism is over just because we have a black president?!" and proceeded to explain why it's not. S/he doesn't get credit for paying attention (or for understanding sarcasm for that matter) but s/he does get credit for getting outraged and expressing it ;) haha

-bites lip- Yeah, I'm afraid that something like 60% of the population is completely, inherently, irrevocably irony impaired. That one site "Black People Love Us," which is--I mean, you can't mug any harder, it's physically impossible without actually painting I R BEIN SARCASTIC on your forehead in flaming red letters--the letters page is -filled- with outrage and/or bewilderment from people who either can't tell if it's a joke or it simply never occurred to them in the first place.

I remember, back when I first came across "Black People Love Us", running up to an African-American co-worker and going, "Shirley, you have got to see this Web site." And she opened it up and went, "Oh. My. God." And then we laughed our asses off for a good ten minutes.

Did you notice how all the outraged/bewildered letters come from Not Racist white people? That's my favorite part.

(Oh, and Follow My Blog! I like how all the little profile pictures look together. Yes, I really am that gay.)
