yet Leslie, being so (TOO) closely involved
of the topic under discussion, she became
dismissive of the fact that her impassioned
defense of those being DISCRIMINATED AGAINST
that she Failed to See what was Right In Front
of Her (and everyone else's) Eyes, that can't
wrap-their-head-around what it's like to,
(as Pres. Obama said) "...to be followed
around a store... etc etc etc"

The difference being, there was no way to
HIDE the fact that they were Black...
...they were "stuck with it" ...like it or not

I said it applied to all oppressed (same as discriminated against) groups.

Are you suggesting Black people would hide their blackness if they could?
Are you suggesting GLBT are lucky to be able to do so?
