"I care that "white people are like this!" is the Jay Leno's prolapsed asshole of comedy. But if you miss this post, I have some awesome emails I can forward you. You will, I assure you, make with the high wakka-wakka."
There is institutional racism and personal racism. When, because of all pervading institutional racism, a victimized member of a race turns to personal racism it shouldn't be such a big deal. It's just words without power, why get upset? Even in the odd case when it is violence against one person from the ruling race, sure it's bad luck for that person, but don't worry the institutions will see that justice is done and the big picture remains unchanged.
"One irony-deficient reader complained that the blog was less about white people than it was about yuppies. And without knowing it, she was cutting to the heart of the joke.

He's essentially reminding them that they too are part of a group."
