P.S. to my previous post: Part of the tongue in cheek sarcasm of "political correctness" is that the only "minority" left which is politically acceptable to pick on IS "white people," hence anyone who has any claim to being non-white can opt out of "whiteness" to take shots, yet still have the luxury of going to the country club and "passing." It's the cheap thrill of the 90's. SETH SKLAREY Coconut Grove, Florida crissiet[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYBODY
