A new member of the idiot’s club

New York writer and entrepreneur Anil Dash wins membership in the club by blogging about,  in a very intellectually written and long-winded post,  racism. What his post revealed is a total lack of a sense of humor and a sense of self-righteous indignation that comes from not really knowing what racism is.

Here are the definitions . . .

Racism—a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule others. http://www.dictionary.com
Humor—The ability to perceive, enjoy, or express what is amusing, comical,  incongruous, or absurd.

The inability to laugh at your self, or your race when presented with comedic stereotypes is one of things wrong (I have a long list) with the world today. Everything doesn’t have to be offensive and presented, performed, uttered just to piss you off. Really, most of the world doesn’t care who you are or what you think.

You can make up your own mind as long as the politically correct crowd lets this stick around.
