  •  You very succinctly (6+ / 0-)

    put into words what half the world doesn't "get" about the other half.  If you have never been the only white person, non-Asian person, not gay/bi/trans person, not whatever-every-other-person-in-the-room-is person, you do not know how your non-cohort see the world.  I grew up in a rural area upstate NY.  Couldn't wait to get out of there & meet people not like the people I grew up around!  I still cringe at some of the stuff my parents say, just cuz they can't imagine how their words affect others.
