Discussing racism

There was a bit of an explosion recently on the mailing list for a swingers club I have frequented in the past. Someone was complaining about people breaking a rule that single men are expected to follow, but the description offered described the offender as “this black guy.” Several people made the comment that it sounded like the problem then was less that the rule was broken by a single guy, but that it was broken by a black guy.

The ensuing shitstorm reminded me of this amazing video by Jay Smooth

While I tried to stick to the guidelines Jay put forth here, it still devolved into “I’m not a racist!” then worse into people saying that their desire to play only with white couples wasn’t racist at all. It was just a preference.

I had to just unsubscribe from the list before I devolved into this.
