All you poor oppressed people in the world... how do you ever get by?

The blacks subjugated through institutionalized racism.
The whites demeaned because it's *assumed* that their skin color makes them a bigot.
The asians stereotyped as industrious, hard working, polite and quiet.
The latinos stereotyped as hard talking criminals and trashy sluts.
The women, still hitting that glass ceiling, viewed as sex objects, shunted off into the dark corners of life.
The men, still being expected to provide and shoulder burdens.

And that's just the shit on the outside! Nevermind all the things your families did to you, random strangers did to you.
All that personal, deep seated trauma you've recieved over the years that's made you into another 30 sub-defintions of oppressed people....

Give me a fucking break, mmkay?

Personally, I would love to be a hard-talking, industrious, sex object. Yep.

After reading this post, I need psychological support and monetary compensation. Your harsh tone has rattled my fragile emotional psyche and made it impossible to concentrate on my work.

Well, you're in luck. Getting monetary compensation for emotionally distraught, psychologically opressed peoples is the point nad purpose of the New ACLU, where the motto is "You're opressed too!"

Joy and rapture! I, too, can hop on the Suffering Bandwagon for the low, low price of "my last shred of self-respect!"

If I ever learned anything from Bloom County, it's that it is easier to just blame everything on Reagan.
