Blowhard, Esq. writes:

Many people are showering contempt on Paul Ryan’s recent Instagram photo of Capitol Hill interns for being “so white.” This Esquire writer thinks it’s “deeply, disturbingly wrong.”

We’re at a bizarre moment in American history where some people think that noting that a group of people is “so white” is a trenchant political comment. This is akin to observing that the sun is “so bright” is an important piece of scientific data.

    What’s really disturbing is that probably a majority of those kids in that picture would agree — at least publicly — with the Esquire writer that the white balance of the room is “deeply, disturbingly wrong.” God knows how they feel on the inside, but I bet that if you asked them for a reaction to that quote, most would go, “I know, right!”
