Michelle asked: The game = not racist. The statements on the game = collection of stupid things white racists say.

This is depressingly accurate.

I can check way too many of these off of the bingo card. Including the Emmett Till one. I’m sure I’d be able to check off the Medgar Evers and Oscar Grant squares too, but after getting the, “Who’s Emmett Till?” response, it was too depressing to bring them up. The cold hard reality is that we still live in a country where racism, and not just the institutional kind, but also the in-your-face, openly bigoted variety, is just beneath the surface ready to bubble up at a moment’s notice.
