Thursday, June 2

it's time--

for the Sisterhood Showcase (and Outreach, apparently--the name change is a new one). I've always wanted to go but, being white, supposed I'm not part of the true sisterhood. Ethnicity has a way of excluding just as much as it includes. White people just don't experience the exclusion that much cause we're all over the place pretty much wherever we go. Try dating someone from another country, another race, or religion & you'll see what I mean. I've done all 3 and it's really weird. I'd say foreign-speaking boyfriends are the worst cause all their rude friends start speaking Turkish or Bosnian and you don't know what the hell is going on but you laugh anyway at their jokes which would likely be unfunny in any language. Ha ha ha ha ha. Anyway, chances are you will not see me there this weekend. I'll try to come up with a plan soon -- it' s only Thursday, so I'll figure out something, I'm sure. Any suggestions?

I can get you a free ticket to the Showcase. I don't think I would feel very comfortable at an event directed exclusively to black females.

We would probably be pretty conspicuous, but we could pretend we're doing an article for our magazine -- what's our angle?
