See, see!!! This is why I want everybody to come to the Town Hall. Then we can have a really good discussion and learn a whole bunch a stuff.
DS: My bad. I blame it on writing my stinking motion all weekend. I should have written "cultural appropriation". Maybe that helps clear it up...
I think there is a world of difference between dressing up like a sterotypical MYTHICAL thingy, who is not now and has never been a subject of discrimination in our fair land, and dressing up as a stereotype for a nationality that has been/is the subject of discrimination.
I think it really sucks that someone's career could be negatively impacted by one or two bad decisions, but I also think that it is really important not to tolerate racism, sexism, prejudice, ignorance, cultural insensitivity, etc. So I am kinda torn on this one. I would not have broadcast the names, but I can't decide if that makes me a male private part or not. Something I am still thinking about.
