It is Not Easy Being White
It seems like the popular thing to talk about these days is all the racial tension and hidden racism against African-Americans. That is fine, I am as anti-racism as the next progressive, but let me tell you something: it is not easy being white, either. Let me just start with the word white. Who decided that it was okay to call me that? I prefer Euro-American or simply Amero-American. But white does not even accurately describe the actual color of my skin. Do you know what is actually white? Toilets, mayonnaise, and snow. People call me white right to my face; day in and day out. What they are really calling me is snowy mayo toilet-skin.
