Well I’ve been thinking about feminism and minorities lately, and I have a few things to say specifically to the feminists and minorities:

Victims of sexism, racism, prejudice. They can’t get ahead. It’s always because they’re a woman. It’s always because their black. It’s always because their Hispanic. You see what I’m getting at?
