What I Told My White Friend When He Asked For My Black Opinion On White Privilege — Everyday Feminism

"trust me, nobody is mad at you for being white. Nobody."

"But what is being asked of you is to acknowledge that white privilege does exist and ... to stand up for fair treatment and justice"

Went to X-rated Bingo at what is apparently an LGBTQ-friendly bar in downtown Kent last night. Was entertaining, but very boisterous and extroverted. Difficult for me to handle on a Friday evening, but I may try again next month.

Highlight of Friday night: Watching friends and co-workers play Rock Band while the entire room sings Bohemian Rhapsody :-)
Low: Facing, again, how much shared culture I missed out on by not going to college :-(

What Reality are Trump People Living In? | Jer's Intellectual Adventures

This is a fascinating read, especially as it parallels my own issues with religion. I've always referred to it as "absolutism", but in this draft analysis they call it "hierarchical" and "nonhierarchical":

For those who believe that reality is hierarchical, if two things are different that usually implies that one is better than the other. Likewise, for those who see reality as nonhierarchical, differences are likely surface and meaningless distinctions and probably distractions.

They're not finished with the research yet, but this explains SO MUCH. Now the question is, what do we do about it? Or can two such diametrically opposed views ever see eye-to-eye?

Somebody nearby in my neighborhood just started setting off fireworks >:-(
