    Allow me to rephrase/approach from a different angle:

    The world we live in:
    Obama, the first black president...
    Patty Jenkins, who just broke the record for a film by a female director...
    Michael Sam, the first openly gay professional football player...



    The world I want to see:
    Obama, the president...
    Patty Jenkins, a film director....
    Michael Sam, a professional football player...
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    You got about 400 more years to wait. Maybe more. You can blame white males for that.

    Yeah, we're the only reason. Thanks.

    Who said I was oppressed? I want equality for all, no labels.

    You guys are on Kluwe level right now (which is about the Flaggy level, except you're for the other party).

    What you want is a great vision of the future. We're just not there yet, and likely won't be in our lifetimes.

    Sadly, it's the truth. We are getting there. I'd just like us to get there faster, without breaking laws. We took a step back in this past election. And it gets to me sometimes.

    The fact that it makes you angry that minorities can be proud of who they are, but you are not allowed to. I hear that complaint all the time.

    That tiny little oppression is a major reason people voted for don. As they see that as being politically correct, as opposed to just nice and respectful.

    You'll never get rid of Obama's and Sam's labels, nor should we. Because the first time a minority (including women) does something like that, it is inherently noteworthy for breaking through the glass ceiling.

    The Patty Jenkins type labels can and will be no longer necessary if and when such acts become common place.

    You hear it from Republicans daily. The white man just can't catch a break.

    In an idea world, that would be great.

    But when people like you go out and belittle minorities of whatever kind for being proud of who they are, that does not help.

    And yes, your satire is just poking fun because of who a person is. May be fine among friends, but when someone is offended that you "joke" is so poor, that's not the fault of the target.

    OK then, I'm proud to be a white male!

    Does that make me a racist bigot?

    You know you've made it in terms of reputation when you are the definition of an insult.

    You can be proud of your label, but then you also need to be "on the correct side". http://www.fox5ny.com/news/259656209-story

    I must be missing something. I don't see Hoven saying he is angry so much as in what he wants for the world it wouldn't be necessary and being perhaps very optimistic that it is happening already?

    I think it is important to not blame all white males for the behaviours.
