    $2,500 to prove your not racist

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...y-racism-women


    This is Race to Dinner. A white woman volunteers to host a dinner in her home for seven other white women – often strangers, perhaps acquaintances. (Each dinner costs $2,500, which can be covered by a generous host or divided among guests.) A frank discussion is led by co-founders Regina Jackson, who is black, and Saira Rao, who identifies as Indian American. They started Race to Dinner to challenge liberal white women to accept their racism, however subconscious. “If you did this in a conference room, they’d leave,” Rao says. “But wealthy white women have been taught never to leave the dinner table.”

    Rao and Jackson believe white, liberal women are the most receptive audience because they are open to changing their behavior.
    “Life has become immeasurably better since I have been forced to stop taking it seriously.”
    Hunter S. Thompson

    Sounds exhausting. I’ll just stick to being a good person. Besides, some of my best friends are black.

    Kinda of what I was wondering
    “I have a responsibility to not be intimidated and bullied by low life losers who abuse what little power is granted to them as ski patrollers.”

    if they were real, they'd be paying you first and if you felt they proved you were a racist after; you paid them.

    if someone wants to do that dinner, i'm up for it, beats a college class or office seminar where there's no back and forth like a dinner

    I agree -- the university and our culture need to stop pandering to white men.

    If seven wealthy white women want to give $2,500 to have dinner with me, I’m in. I will also accept wealthy Asians, Blacks, LBGTQ+, Hispanics, the poor (like they could rub enough nickels), dudes, non-skiers, assholes, pretty much everyone.

    ^^^ $2500 isn’t enough for me to allow The View to surround me at my dinner table. Maybe if I could be temporarily deafened.

    What’s the View? All I ask is they like meat, gluten, and booze or that they can keep to themselves.

    The quote requires that I switch to TGR white to read it. You're a racist.

    Okay, I think I have a line on a pretty cheap not racist, but it's an "as is" not racist. So if I can't prove my not racist, I'm out my money, but it's a lot less than $2500.
