You got me, Anon, nailed it. I am white. That is how I was born, how I grew up and how I presumably will continue to be until I die. Not much I can do about it.
If you have specific criticisms of things I’ve done or said that are shitty, or racist, or bad, then let me know and I’ll try and address them. But my race is not something I can change or apologize for. Thanks for the input!

In other news, fuck it all, I’m gonna watch Bored to Death and pass out. Bye!
Aili’s got a something bite on her arm and I’ve got four on my ankle and it’s swelling pretty bad so we’re gonna both head down to the City MD and get checked out and then burn everything in our apartment
A couple of weeks ago, I was scheduled to take a trip from New York (JFK) to Los Angeles on JetBlue. Every year, my family goes on a one-week pilgrimage, where we put our work on hold and spend time visiting temples, praying, and spending time with family and friends. To my Jewish friends, I often…
