I Spy with my little eye...


Sitting here watching the first Presidential debate of the 2008 election, I recognize another tell that can be added to wise Tim Wise's list of indicators of symptoms of White privilege: white privilege is NOT wearing a flag lapel pin and having it NOT be newsworthy, when the Black guy for whom patriotic bling is perhaps not the "done thing" was excoriated over its absence for weeks on end (oh so seemingly long ago.)

Obama's pinned tonight; McCain is not.
