We will tell you what you can sing in your car
From a previous post, there's this bit.
WORCESTER, Mass. — A freshman tentatively raises her hand and takes the microphone. “I’m really scared to ask this,” she begins. “When I, as a white female, listen to music that uses the N word, and I’m in the car, or, especially when I’m with all white friends, is it O.K. to sing along?”
The answer, from Sheree Marlowe, the new chief diversity officer at Clark University, is an unequivocal “no.”

- Go away. The Crystal Palace game is about to start and I want to watch it in peace.
- Do me a favor and shut up. I like this TobyMac song and you're talking over it.
- If you're going to keep talking, I'm going to need more beer. Lots more.
Seriously, when did we Americans become such sissies that we allow people we don't even know to tell us what underwear to buy and what songs to sing in our cars?
