Victor must've hired me for my good looks or sparkling personality. It wasn't because I'm an Indian. ;-)
Are you saying a non-Indian shouldn't care about an arguably racist stereotype? That it's solely an "Indian thing"? I thought the whole point of mascot protests was to get the mainstream (white) society to care about the issue.
If you check my postings, you'll find I frequently post about prejudice against blacks, Latinos, women, gays, and Muslims--none of which apply to me personally. Do you think that's wrong? Should I stick to "white male heterosexual" issues and ignore the problems facing minorities?
That isn't going to happen, but I'd love to hear an argument for it. Really, should I be myopic, self-centered, and care only about "my own" people? Make a case for this position and I'll consider it.
Suzette didn't answer--presumably because she couldn't. I guess she's tacitly admitting she was wrong. Oh, well...better luck with your arguments next time, friend.
