Drinking Tips for Teens

You’re never too old to learn, they say. I say you’re never too old to learn you’re ignorant.

Why, just the other day, I learned that the chorus of the Beck song “Loser” is partly in Spanish: “Soy un perdedor,” it goes, which translates as “I’m a loser.” I’ve been mumble-singing “sore I am head the door” for the past 18 years, never considering that the lyrics might be in a different language. Does that make me racist? It’s true that a lot of things that never used to make you racist now make you racist. I was imitating an Asian accent the other day and my son said, “That’s racist.” Really? I would think it would be more insensitive than racist. But doing a British accent is still okay, right? What about doing Newfie? So confusing. Sometimes it’s just not worth trying to be funny and white.
