White Girls, Facebook, Pearl Harbor

I’m not sure what to make of this, but apparently race is a very big issue on the internet and prompts a lot of blog discussion that just seems pretty much alien to me.

This is a reasonably interesting and pleasantly humorous post.  But it went viral, much to the bemusement of its author.  Apparently, the reason is that the subject had something to do with “white girls”, maybe in combination with Facebook.

Then there’s this post.  Also viral in the wordpress-o-sphere, apparently because it deals with “white feminists”.  It’s completely different from the previous post, devoid of even so much as a syllable of good-natured humor, but it shares some common elements as far as the subject goes.

I’m wondering why this subject generates such passionate interest on the internet and feeling a bit out of step.  Maybe more than a bit.

And here I thought that the 70th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack might have some currency. At least today.
