Tried to respond but can't without you having written something to accompany your link here (it's true, I have been cone of shamed and can't respond on the main).

Anyway, do you ever feel the notion of solidarity doesn't translate in the same way, from the black community to the white "community" and there's a notion it exists in the same way on both sides of the stupid race debate (stupid because, my god why are We The People not passed this shit by now?) and is part of the breakdown in communication sometimes?

Even saying "white community" makes me wonder if it even can be called that. The word community seems to imply inclusivity, a subculture or something with fairly similar interests, a certain kind quaintness and such, mmm, there's gotta be a better word than quaintness. Ya know, if someone ever told me "HYP, you're not white enough," I would laugh them out of the fucking room; maybe I'd play it smart and tell them a joke...

I mean, I guess I'm not white enough to feel at home with people wearing Lilly Pullitzer and listening to Smashmouth or O.A.R.; christ that shit is repellent. But, I assure you, my ass is so white it could glow in the dark. Like literally. Let me tell ya, you and me both are not gonna be invited to Buffy and Margaux's Sunset & Mimosas Yachting Regatta. Social class is a big thing among the white folks.
