And much much more! Thank goodness you folks are paying that I-tax so that we can hire a librarian to serve just black people. I'm confused though, how are they different? Aren't these Americans we are talking about? Don't they like football and hotdogs? I like football and hotdogs. Is that part of my "customs" and "culture"?
Does the library have separate drinking fountains that appeal to each races' "traditions" and "customs" or can we all just share one? Maybe this is a sign of "ethnocentric monoculturalism" but I don't understand, don't black people use the same computer programs as everyone else? Is there a black version of Windows? Will this librarian guide them to a "culturally appropriate" black internet?
