Pardon me? April 29, 2008

So, when an older black gentleman, clearly a distinguished member of his profession, teaches at our medical school and makes a whack-ass comment about how “real women don’t work in the yard” and I can’t tell if this is a joke or not, and then he goes on to say “men are wimps” and I can’t tell if this is a joke or not, is this evidence of why all human rights dialogues should be merged?  Because do not tell me for a second that this man has not had his share of repugnant experiences in his time based on the color of his skin, and if for a sweet second he realized the nature of his own biases that he would, in some way, see a connection.  It popped an aneurysm in me cranium to think of how wrong it is to be a member of a minority and bash on a member of a different minority.  It’s all xenophobic us-versus-them patriarchy, and it’s all fucked up.
