Fitting in in America

I just want to fit in in America. But I'm having a little trouble keeping up. And there were some official changes in the past week, so let me see if I have the new plan straight.

I no longer have to fear and despise black people.

I don't have to resent the Mexicans and Central Americans, working on the fancy houses near my Apartment, for stealing American jobs.

I should stop tsking disapprovingly at the gay and transgender people I work with.

I'm supposed to wear a mask of some kind when I go out in public.

When I see a policeman beating or murdering someone I no longer have to think that policeman is just a bad apple and that the victim probably had it coming anyway.

I am allowed to believe global climate change is real and dangerous.

And, finally, as a Jew, I no longer have to drink the blood of sacrificed Christian children.

Which is such a relief. I hate drinking blood.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
