White peope don't NEED to preface anything with the word "white" its already IMPLIED! Don't believe me? Go to any grocery store and pick up any cosmo, espquire, magazine and find a black face in the pages. Look at the prizes given in any mainstream contest--I'll bet they include a year's free tanning! Oh yeah, the word is inherent in almost all mainstream TV commercials. how many billboard ads do you see featuring blacks in mainstream advertising?? HELL turn on your tv for god's sake and find an african american TV show without having to have cable television? There hasn't been one on since Damon Wayans went off the air. How about News broadcasts How many people of color ANCHOR the news??? PUHLEEZE! Why do they need to designate the word white when it's in our faces EVERY DAMNED DAY!
