Dear White People, It’s Over and it’s Okay. An Open Letter from One Caucasian to the Rest.
Dear White People, It’s Over and it’s Okay - An Open Letter from One Caucasian to the Rest.
By Sketkh Williams
I’m calling it now, 2013 is the year that the white man has jumped the shark.
Like any good sitcom, the public identity endorsed by thousands of years as a symbol of wealth, success and popularity just can’t sustain its ideas anymore and I blame a lack of diversity.
Look I’m no one. Really, just a guy, spectator and equally as culpable at times. I’m just a member of the audience. But this is off the chain in how ridiculous this has gotten.
In the last few weeks we have news casters with unnecessarily misspelled names telling children Santa is white as a fact, making other newscasters interview different “Special Santas” to make sure kids don’t get upset. Then, of course they have to assure everyone that Jesus is white as well.
A member of Duck Dynasty, the only other American Royalty next to the Jay-Z/Beyonce Clan, is being sidelined from his own show for sharing his own thoughts. Now were they anti-gay? Yes, but however bigoted or not, our money is on fire and health insurance still needs fixing and the length of his beard alone should prove how unsurprising and un-newsworthy that is.
And there’s Paula Deen, which I’ll admit before this year, my only knowledge of her consisted of how she pronounced the word “Spatula” which is how I choose to remember her.
I know what you’re asking, Sketkh, what about Putin? My response is, I’m glad you asked, but just look at Russia in general and be grateful this country isn’t that far gone. But look at the parallels in Gay Oppression, Poverty and Corruption from America’s in the 1950’s without the socialism and we weren’t that far off.
I don’t know a lot, I have no answers, but I just have to ask. What do we have against happiness?
Peace is not having keeping everything for yourself. I don’t even believe it’s making sure everyone has everything they ever want.
When I first moved to New York City, I was amazed by how friendly a city it is. I saw movies, TV show’s heard what other people said and made a point to be on my guard,created this projected fear of NYC that is often undone by how sweet, fun and generally loving it’s natives are. I dropped fifty bucks on the subway once, someone held the train to make sure I got it back. A lost iPhone was returned one day later, because ”we’ve all been there” proving to me this is not just a small town mentality.
Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot of assholes here too, it’s a case by case thing.
It’s the holiday season, Thanksgiving was about being grateful for what we have, Chanukah is about the miracle of freedom, Christmas is about the birth of a man who taught us about sacrifice and Kwanzaa is about strength in heritage, and then there’s whatever the Buddist do this time of year… I think there’s beads or something… then we all get drunk and party together on New Years and start fresh.
in 2014, can we just all start fresh?
Let’s make Pot legal, tax the hell out of it to fix our deficit then get high and dance real silly at a gay wedding. It doesn’t matter if you all know is the Chicken Dance, they won’t judge you. You might even learn something new for the next one.
I don’t have kids, I have friends who do, and I why do I want them to think playing with a black barbie is weird? They’re going to have play dates with other kids who have two dads and both those children will never have to worry about healthcare when they’re older, and their parents will share the best weed ever, not that CVS pot, like home grown stuff they learned to grow on HGTV with the money they saved because College is so cheap compared to what… (deep breath)…Okay, I’m back.
And next time you think some personality on TV is being persecuted because he said something offensive, please stop and think of a 16 year girl named Malala, from Pakistan, and remember she’s on Al’Queda’s Most Wanted list for wanting Free and Equal Education for everyone in her country, spoke publicly about it, got shot, then got right back up and kept preaching for nonviolence and the rights of women and her war-torn home. You know who else did that? Teddy Roosevelt? Man took a bullet to the chest and kept on giving a speech. Google it.
How can Anyone take a Kardasian seriously after that?
This rant has gone Inception-Deep, so I’ll wrap it up now.
2014 needs to be about change, not about the talk of change or how we all fear it. Change needs to happen because stuff is just boring now. I want us to talk more, not talk-at more and that means listening too. I wanna share Ideas, I don’t want us to compete, let’s collaborate.
But thank you 2013 for the greatest gift of all, Patrick Steward and Ian McKellan’s Twitter Pics. That seems to be the only thing every race, creed and sex hasn’t fought over yet.
Another Straight White Guy
Is there confusion?
Here’s that other #Doritos Commercial I did with DaysideTV.
