An addendum

A corollary of what I just said is that it’s damn foolish to assume that because you share certain cultural factors with folks you will get along. Yeah, it’s cool to nod at the person of your color on the street, but they have just as high a chance of sucking as someone whose skin (or some other characteristic) isn’t like yours at all. And hey, maybe you suck to them. Heh.

This is something I really learned in Korea, where I bonded with people over English, and that is a very thin bond, when you think about it.
