  1. I completely agree with Oscar. I can't tell you how many times I've been rejected because I'm "ugly". One little detail and I'm rejected!

    Good on him. Now ... where does he Grindr?

  2. Please, let's be honest, on social/hookup sites like Grindr and such, "white" is not looked at as simply a signifier, but as an attribute. Oh but, "it's not about race" is the well worn out reply from many, but when they are asked, what are you? "I'm white." No, tell me about yourself, your ethnicity, not your skin color...English, Swedish, French, Italian, Irish etc., what the fuck ARE you, HELLO...So, the first ones to holler, "it's not about race". Oh, but it so is...and to me it used to be annoying, but nowadays, it's just funny...
    Once a girlfriend who was visiting me from England had me rolling when she was asked over the phone if she was "white" she was like, "I'm not white, i'm British!" You go girl...

  3. "Power Rangers producer says David Yost quit the show for financial reasons, not because of homophobia on the set."

    I can believe that. It's the same reason why the original red, yellow and black rangers (Jason, Trini & Zach) quit the show.

  6. @ YEAHISAIDIT

    I find the second question just as unimportant as the first. I HATE it when people ask me where I'm from. I say, "...um, from Canada. That's where we're standing now", and they go "but WHERE are you FROM?" Like it matters! Who cares if my ancestors are Scottish or British or whatever, it hardly matters to me and it certainly shouldn't matter to anyone else. If someone asked me over the phone what my race or ethnicity was I would definitely give them some very "colourful" language.

  8. @ Eric26 It's just called making interesting conversationIMHO...I happen to love, given the opportunity, to chat with people about their backgrounds, and not their skin color, oh, guess what? I actually learn some things about different cultures

    For example like relating to some the fact that "black" has multiple meanings as in black is the race, and black is the culture, (since actual knowledge of ethnicity was neither recorded or known of Africans brought to this country during "those" times.) So, when people are confused and ask, "Why is it always about race with U.S. Blacks?" Because American black culture is based on race, again dating back to "those" times. Language progresses and now we have the term African American...Consequently, Black is the race, African American is the culture which is apt. However, all blacks are not African-American...It's a cultural distintion sic. Italian-American, Spanish-American, Irish-American, not a racial one...

    For Caucasians it's been white is the race, European is mostly the ethnicity and culture, British, Swedish, French, Spainish, Irish, Italian, wherever the white persons ancestors are from and so forth which is historically known, documented and intact...

    See, for me this is why when you move past all the volatility surrounding ethnicity and race it makes for fascinating stuff to learn, know and have some idea of self and others. And instead of all that, "aren't we all just Americans", melting pot analogy, where everthing is supposedly the same, we move into the Tossed salad territory, (no pun intended),where everything is mixed together but can retain it's own flavor, variety actually being the spice of life as we all know it is and should very well be...
