Where do I start with this drivel? “Lena Dunham wants to be progressive, but her art is shallow and vacuous.” But progressives are shallow and vacuous, it’s how I pick them out in a crowd.

For the rest, you are clearly obsessed about everyone but yourself being “racist”, and you think skin colour determines race: that is in itself shallow and vacuous.

Europeans are generally not white; they are pink. Most Afro-Americans are not black, they are brown, and the only race I know that is close to actual whiteness are the Japanese and other Asian races. So white extremists should actually describe themselves as pink supremacists, or resign in favour of properly white Asians. good luck with that…

I only raise the actual skin colour issue to show how silly it is to be obsessed about one attribute of a person’s genotype. We have never vilified people on the basis of eye colour, or hair colour, have we? Or maybe we have; I was once a Ginger, a Ginga or a Ranga, depending on the Country I was a red-head in.

I can agree with you that “Being racist is bad”, but it is more accurate to say “Being racist is stupid”, just like being feminist is stupid. Of course you can be stupid without being racist, I think you have proved that beyond a doubt.
