White people problems
Over at True/Slant, I blogged about two white girls who are taking heat because they decided to go live with a family from Mexico in MacArthur Park, which is in Los Angeles.
Basically, the complaint is that white people are chock full o' inherent privilege, only people of certain races or classes can write about other people in those races or classes, and if you don't follow these rules, you are not in the club.
This thinking is asinine, stupid, and also boring. Who is anyone to define journalism? Who dictates what is politically correct and what is not? At least the two broads at hand got off their asses and did something other than claim revomited content as reporting and bitch and whine because they got called gossip bloggers for spreading rumors or whatever it is they do over there.
