Warner Bros. has halted production on replicas and models of the popular "Dukes of Hazzard" car, the General Lee, which has a confederate flag on its roof. The company stated that it will resume production with a new revamped version of the 1969 Dodge Charger with curb feelers, a boom box, and 22" rims.
While this may be true, I did not have the option of being white. I did have the option of being every other color in the rainbow coalition. I was disenfranchised from being able to "claim" the truth. The instructors insisted a box had to be checked. The only choice that was applicable to me was "non hispanic". Being white, I could not claim what I was, only something I was not. The thought process behind this on a state level should speak volumes.
So I had to take this recertification class for this thing I do, right? Well, it was a week long deal. Every day I had to fill out paperwork prior to each class. Every day I had to check a box from a myriad of choices of race/ethnicity. Every day I left it blank. Every day I had the paperwork returned to me for correction. Every day I told the instructor (new one each day) none of the choices applied to me. It's just so hard being white today.
America has already been detained and processed at Walmart.
As big a deal as this is, it should be noted that this is picking the carcass. For all practical purposes we are a cashless economy now. Less than 5% of the notational "money" is in the form of paper currency.
A truncated bubble whistles throughout this hacking league
How will a play script malfunction?
An amused audience neglects the actor
Across an unfinished scene strikes the rolling trash
Every intermission ends
