You're welcome. Honestly, I don't think it was an insult to white men. It is true that "rich white men" don't tend to become humble (and she did say "a rich white man"). I think the fact that you hair-trigger get defensive about it says more about you, than about what the insult intended. It wasn't a tirade against white men. It was an observation about rich white men, of which our esteemed Corgan is exemplary of. Not to speak for anyone else, but I doubt anyone thinks that every single rich white man fits this.

spit it out labelle, his biggest mistake is being a white dude. Also, sorry for not reciprocating your attempts at cybersex through the rep box... my shitty android browser wouldn't let me reply

understood, and perhaps my defensiveness does say something about me. I don't claim to be perfect. But we all have our own life experiences that influence our views of the world. It's a tired debate. I feel dumb getting into it.

I haven't read it since it came out, so I'll take your word for it. In all fairness, I might be projecting my own views on his comedy/art and viewing his 'response' through a more sympathetic lens.

I didn't even know it was you whom I told that to. I see it is now. But you were being rude and you know it. At the very least, unfriendly. "Use paragraphs" that hurt my feelings.

I think you guys should apologize to Billy for all the mean things you've said.

Billy needs to apologize to himself. He alone has ruined his legacy. The current Smashing Pumpkins incarnation is like the bastard son of a bastard son of a wild-eyed child of the Sun.

That's like a bad imitation of a lyric poor bastard BC pulled out of his ass one morning in 1995.

I was READING THE ARCHIVES last night and found a post from 2002 where someone with far more patience than myself was trying to explain to some idiots with fragile white egos that reverse racism or racism towards whites can't exist because racism specifically refers to systemic disenfranchisement... seems pc culture was runk amok back then too

or else maybe racists are just equally as fucking stupid in all times

These ppl are the NRA of civil rights. Existing for a good reason in the beginning, but eventually perverting the message out of step with reality.

(Although I think the 2nd amendment should be banned altogether... I'm not dumb enough to think that is a useful discussion to have)
