This is an email that I recieved today:
I was speaking with a very intelligent man that I know today, and he pointed out something of interest to me. While I was aware of the new 10% tax on tanning salons, I hadn’t given it much thought. I mean, I don’t patronize tanning salons, so what would I care right? Well, my friend asked me to tell him who goes into tanning salons. Hmmmm. Let’s see – well, people who want a tan right? People who need a tan. People with pasty skin. Light skinned people are the only people, in any number, who would ever go into a tanning salon. So, this is really a tax on light skinned people and yet I don’t recall hearing any outcry from the media. Imagine that. If Congress passed, and light skinned president signed, any bill that targeted people of color - there would be a poop storm of Biblical proportion. I guess it’s only racism when light skinned people do it. At least I got that all figured out now and I can move on .No, I’m not making it up:
Does anyone find this a bit messed up?
