Or Kill Me / Re: Political Steam Blowing

having a last name like "Obama," which sounds distinctly African, pretty much evens out any deficiency of melanin in his skin for people who might tend to see it that way. Throw in a middle name like Hussein, and your argument should be altogether moot. Being that it's America, the modern-day home of two-faced hypocritical altruism, his chances are low enough anyway without even getting into how Black he is.

But if Obama gets elected this year, I may have to reconsider my current opinion of how thoroughly misguided the American public is on the issue of race.

this is nonsense.

barack obama will change something: he will be the final blow to all hope for a better future. because, when even the "OUTSIDER" (Black Outsider, no less) ends up disappointing you, then you will finally accept the fact that the political system is what it is, and you cannot change it.

it used to be that when addressing a gender-unknown, you would simply use "he" and variations of it.

"his or her" is, in my opinion, just results from a bunch of whiny "but what about meeee" crap. it's a fucking pronoun. fight for wages and equality - is a pronoun really that important?

"zie/zhyr/sie/'j'/zis/etc" - not be an asshole, but... come the fuck on. i'm sorry that our language has evolved over thousands of years with certain cultural assumptions. but is fighting about a fucking pronoun really what you want to be using your energy on? if so, it's a free country (for now) so more power to you. just don't complain to me when you're blue in the face and official forms still don't have a option under gender for "other." at some point, you're going to have to accept who you are and accept that other people don't necessarily see it that way.

Truth. For example - how many times have you been at a lower-end department store looking for a shirt or something, and finding nothing because everything has to have some logo or advertisement or one-liner all over it? I know that happens to me quite a bit. People are generally "individuals" within an increasingly narrowing definition of what is acceptably unique.

you know those fucking annoying celebrity rags in the checkout lane, whose sole purpose is to keep people infatuated with the pantheon of modern-day gods and goddesses? i think i have a solution. design these, print them, and stick them in front of the magazines :P

 it's like the Emerald City in the Wizard of Oz - the city is green, because everyone wears green glasses. it's absurd to suggest that the city isn't really green. the evidence is right there in front of their eyes, as far as they're concerned. most people look at the world through fear-tinted glasses, and they're justified in wearing them, after all they believe the realities they subscribe to are absolute, and there are real consequences in those realities for removing your spectacles.

once you realize that there's nothing fundamentally, naturally requiring you to care about your dead-end job, it's hard to keep caring. but that doesn't stop you from wanting the material benefits that dead-end job can provide you. a lot of people get to that point and immediately turn back, because if you just up and walk away from your bullshit responsibilities, nobody will give you a line of credit to live the life you think you deserve to live.

the biggest and strongest bars in the BIP aren't what you beleive about other people or how you think the world works, they are aspirations and fantasies about where you think you're going. most of that depends on your acceptance of the daily-grind game. maybe that would translate in this metaphor to the shackles that keep you from ever getting as far as the actual bars of your cell in the first place.
