I was in the break room with some co-workers on Monday morning when one of them asked me what I thought of the Oscars.
I responded without consideration for her perception of me, or the feelings of my co-workers as I exclaimed “I didn’t watch the Oscars because I AM A STRAIGHT, WHITE MALE!!!!”
As her eyes bulged in disbelief, she asked me what that had to do with anything. I added “Because shows like that are not made for people like me.”
While the middle aged female who posed the question backed away, an older White gentlemen gave a knowing glance. We need more White American men to call out the lunacy of the establishment, publicly shame them, with the ultimate goal of dulling their influence and removing them from power.
