Another blind squirrel finds a nut.

And today it’s Ruben Navarrette. We all know that if a white actress displayed pride in her *insert your country of choice here* roots and white bloggers accused her of not being sufficiently proud of her Anglo self all hell would break loose, and rightly so. And if such is wrong for white people — and it is — then it ought to be wrong for every other ethnicity, too. It really is one of the great travesties of our time that so many people can get away with such blatant racism. It’s almost as if MLK died for nothing.

    The really messed up part of it all, is that any time someone “ethnic” isn’t “true” to their “heritage,” they’re accused of “acting white” and called whatever nickname applies to that group; Oreos and Uncle Toms among blacks, apples among American Indians. (Is there a similar nickname among Mexicans and Latinos?)
