I would actually like to read an article that addresses the issue of white voyeurism on Twitter; what with Slate and that awful article on Gizmodo not too long ago, I'm starting to see a rather different pattern than the one the major outlets are currently touting...

Holy fucking shit.

If only you knew how badly everyone in this debate is getting played.

First off, the majority of this black-or-white silliness is coming form @baratunde and friends. I love him, really.

Slade is sucking it up like the sycophants that they are (and also getting played) -- but the writer of this article gets it. He understands what is going on here.

I just want to see SF Boylesque go the full ghetto bird.

Yes, I know: Hell. Me. Forever. Burning.

That page mocking Slate's black-twitter-bird-wearing-baseball-hat made me laugh. Especially the version where the bird's on rims.
