Not As Inclusive As You Might Think

San Francisco's LGBT Center may pride itself on being inclusive and so sensitive as to have gender neutral bathrooms. However, I have been fascinated for some time by this sign. While they are diligent about enforcing their rule about white passengers loading on Market Street, they give no instructions for where non-whites are to load.

I have a recycle bin at my work that is designated "White Paper Only"

What a world, what a world.

I think the makers of Wonder Bread may be racist, too.

Gavin - The Oakland Airport has a White Parking Lot shuttle bus.

Huntington - There was also White Westinghouse.

And White GMC trucks.

I am reminded here of the sign in my storage warehouse that warned of random walk-throughs by the police with their "illegal substance sniffing dogs".

The dogs themselves are illegal. This is an outrage.

Rich - And I am also reminded of Alaska Airlines announcing that you can carry on no more than two bags "and ladies this includes your purses." We men, of course, can carry on our purses and two bags as I always do. Ha, ha, I fooled them. I'm a drag king!

Oh boy, we must be mindful of our syntax and language at all times. Thanks for this clear reminder and PSA.

Gary - It might be easier just painting that zone purple which would be more appropriate at an LGBT center anyway.

P.S. to Rich - Actually, those dogs are undocumented not illegal.
