yes it's good you could laugh. sometimes it's the only thing you can do to keep from crying. it's necessary to have a good sense of humor if one is not a straight white bioboy.

reminds me of all the Cleveland Indians caps I saw people wearing in the Navajo Nation. clearly they were making fun of the ridiculous lengths that white folks will go to to justify blatant, public-sponsored racism.

*grin*

Those Cleveland hats are really popular...I have seen more than a few Native folk wear them with pleasurable sense of irony...
