Sly’s done it again. For the third time in just over a week, my neck has gone haywire. It still hurts like nothing else, and I can’t think much.

But I’ll lay out a contrast I noticed.

Quixote at Shakesville goes Neo-con on us, and Mandolin at Alas (writing earlier) notes why self-righteousness is tasty, but is not particularly useful against a cultural practice.

Note the language differences. Scare quoting “culturally sensitive” is something that white racists do. “It’s happening right here at home!” is something xenophobes say.

Previously, I winged by this topic by way of foot binding

Seeing the grays is not an optional thing. Telling the full truth about a situation means recognizing complexity.

White Supremacy is not a feminist act.
