This L.A. Times piece (via Rex) is so spot-on and well written it makes me want to stand up and cheer. In particular, this:
"Too many white people don't like to be reminded that they're white. They like to think that white people are those evil corporate right-wingers or the uneducated masses who vote the wrong way. But 'enlightened whites' are white people too and have just as much of a group mentality as they think the red staters have."
made me almost yell at the screen, "MOVE TO SEATTLE SOMETIME, DUDER."
