Several recent posts at Pansies have disturbed me because I am not sure which side of the issues to come down on.
R.O. Chester rightly points out that there is an undeniable undercurrent of racism at work in the persecution of Bill Cosby. But, we can’t forget the War on Women, and all the recent problems with the “rape culture.” So, as a conscientious Liberal, which side do I pick in this? Do I side with the Black victim, or do I side with the female victims?
Then, there is Sacks Roamer’s article about Eric Holder. He is a Black man, and just as entitled to go through the revolving door in Washington, and make money off his contacts in government as any white man. But, with an anticipated income in the seven to eight figure range, how can I support him over the impoverished people in the country. Does his “race” trump the poor and underprivileged classes we Liberals have sworn to protect? Or, does poverty trump race?
These are weighty issues, and I am in a complete dither on how I am supposed to feel. Why can’t life be easy?

PS: Oh, Penelope Dreadful has asked me to start putting in a footnote about the images. This is from the George Pal’s 1951 film, When Worlds Collide. Which you can watch in its entirety here:
