The Natatorium

An emporium of oddities from around the world, complete with somewhat informative plaques that almost never match the item they are meant to be describing.

Whew! I am so busy! I still have a bunch of schoolwork to do, so I better get crackin'. Jenny posted something today that I have always wondered about: wiggers (btw i *hate* that word, but there isn't another to describe them). Full story here. Another cultural "conundrum" I have: why is it that when a race has a certain culture, such as "hip hop" or whatever you want to call it, anyone who trashes that culture (by saying it's ignorant or something like that) is labled a "racist", whereas if you trash the "hillbilly" culture (and it *is* a culture), that's perfectly okay, because it's a subculture of whites? And believe me, hillbilly culture is trashed all the time. Yes, it's true, there are a lot of ignorant, trashy people out there, but not all folks labled "hillbilly" are that way. I don't talk with a twang or own any pigs, but my grandparents came from small country towns, and bluegrass gospel is part of our heritage. It just seems kind of unfair.

PS-which one o'yall left that noxema in my downstairs bathroom???
