Sorting Through Race Relations At UCSD

I agree with ucsd07alum, when Oktoberfest celebrations are filled with scantily clad beer-maidens and giant beer steins where is the outcry on behalf of the German community? Same can be said for St. Patricks Day. Next month I guarantee there will be plenty of corned beef and cabbage eating, binge drinking, and numerous other inaccurate Irish stereotypes all over town on March 17th.

To ccj2002 - I have personally witnessed, and reveled with, members of the black community participating in White Trash parties and singing at White Trash karaoke nights.

Sorting Through Race Relations At UCSD

You know, if I had a dollar for every time I have heard about, been invited to, and/or attended a "White Trash" party, I could probably put a huge dent in my student loans. I suppose those are equally as offensive, so why hasn't a White Trash party ever been a national news story?

Many Layers, And S.D. Connections To Male Circumcision Debate

I find the "intactivists" comparison of infant male circumcision to female genital mutilation insulting. The two are completely different for many reasons, too many for me to go into here. A better comparison to infant male circumcision would be the decision of a parents to pierce a female infants ears, a decision made purely for asthetic reasons that results in minor, and temporary, pain and discomfort for an infant, but a decision that our culture hardly considers outrageous.
