The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Color as a Construct

For John, BLUFMaybe he is over the top, but maybe he is on to something.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

Here is the sub-headline:

Before I came to America, I didn’t see color.  Now, unfortunately, I do.

Here is the lede plus one:

It took me a couple of seconds to get Stephen Colbert’s joke line—“I don’t see race”—when I first heard it.

In the USA, the joke works because no one can seriously imagine everyone not seeing race.

But when I first heard it, I had to work that out because I was born and raised in the UK … and I never saw race.

That’s not because I am more evolved than any American or more “woke” or more of anything at all. It’s just that I was brought up in a culture and a manner in which skin color was something one paid about as much attention to as hair color. Colbert’s joke simply wouldn’t work in the England of my generation.

Well, there is that belief about blonds.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
