    Meanwhile 25-percent of white women have Chinese lettering tattooed on their lower back in this country.

    So do a lot of men. And none of them know if the lettering means what the flash on the tattoo shop's walls says it means.

    FWIW my wife is in the demographic that would allegedly be offended by this. She pays no attention to social media (good for her). I told her a white girl in Utah wore a traditional Chinese dress to prom and now is getting vilified online.

    Her one-word response: "Why?"

    I don't know if that satisfies RickStain's diversity requirement, but I thought it was relevant.

    It's a start.

    Just curious what the reaction might’ve been if she had worn a dashiki.

    You should appropriate a personality.

    Your second statement contradicts your first.

    Depends on what race she identifies as.

    An extraordinarily salient point.

    The posting of this group photo in her Twitter feed probably didn’t help calm the ire.

    I had to ask my 16-year-old what gang the guys were in. He said it was Vape Nation.

    I should probably put this in the “Things that make you feel old” thread.

    Good idea. Give me some pointers on angry, lonely guy who thinks he is smarter than everyone.

    I'm hurt that you would go to him and not me.
