Seperate but Equal Gift Guides

Unbelievable. And quite disturbing.

So, it's okay to have seperate but equal things if those things are liberal, right? Apparently the NYT thinks so as they have created a "special" gift guide for those people of color (I thought referring to folks "of color" was offensive).

Just wow.

So, where is the gift guide for people who lack skin pigmentation? And what would be on it?

I think they left some things off of their official Person's of Color gift guide though. I mean...if you're going to focus on "colored" folk then includes more than just the libs, right?
Bobby Jindal counts as successful and his skin is sure darker than mine. But as a conservative he isn't really "of color" according to the NYT.

He's not necessarily a conservative, but he is hilarious and while his skin color is of "color" he is apparently treated as though he isn't a "real" black man. I heard him interviewed...I think on Michael Medved's show, but it could have been somewhere else.

And of course they couldn't include a conservative black man who made it all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States, long before "the One" became President. Because after all, conservative views aren't really "black".

The whole thing makes me sick. Why would any of my black or "Latina" friends be less interested in what I'm interested in? We aren't defined by our skin color but by our character and our shared interests. I don't shop for my coworker who is from Colombia any differently than I do for the one from Canada.

It's just one more example of the left's true hypocrasy when it comes to race.

Bobby Jindal is Indian. His parents are both immigrants, and he is the first generation of his family born here.

Jana beat me to it. ;)

But Jindal's skin is more pigmented than mine... that whole color thing drives me nuts. And gifts for different colors? That's... asinine.

i know he's Indian, but it's not just a "guide" for black people but people of "color"...which he is.
