The Racist Tree

As I began reading I thought, this is a little on the lame side, but let’s see where it goes. And it went – even so far as to reflect my opinion of the Oscar nominated film, “The Help,” of which I’m not fan (though that’s another matter). Enjoy.

    So the moral of the story is that the white kids were mean to the tree? I feel bad for the tree, being ostracized like that :(… Sounds like the tree is being coerced into thinking and behaving a certain way just to avoid being marginalized. Is that right?
    Before you start inundating this post with hate mail, relax. I’m NOT taking this seriously. It’s a silly, sarcastic comment made out of utter complacency. I’m just sitting, sipping my coffee and listening to Chuck D and P.E.. It’s too early in the a.m. to get too serious about politics and morality….

    So the moral of the story is that peer pressure and name-calling is the antidote to racism?

      The insinuation I found was that fear of exclusion and/or disapproval by whites incentivizes many folks to denounce racism.

    Why’s it gotta be a tree? Why not a grapevine? Or a strawberry plant?

    This kind of rampant plantism destroys societies.
