One of my go-to cookbooks is The Art of American Indian Cooking. The link I just dropped leads to an awesome site called Eat Your Books, which I really MUST use Real Soon Now. Do any of you use this site? Is it really really useful, or a time suck? I can see it going either way. And I like my physical cookbooks in case the interwebs ever go dark, y’know?

Now, I’ll tell you what: Racism sucks. And don’t try to tell me that white people in America suffer from any form of racism, because we don’t. Our color or culture or way of talking or habits might be mocked by people of other races, but that isn’t racism. Why not? Because racism is the dominant culture using race as a weapon to oppress people they want to define out, that’s why not. If a black woman calls me a honky, she might hurt my feelers but she isn’t doing me any harm. I have a whole big pile of white privilege to fall back on. There is no systemic racism involved.
Non-whites, however, suffer economically, emotionally, and physically from systemic and personally directed racism. Lookit:
