I was actually thinking of you when I wrote it, and I think I will add an adendum. The other problem I have with the "Red" crap is that it's a band-aid on the stereotypes. It's a sterilyzed way to help. Wow I can't spell today. It's like that scene in Cruel Intentions where the lady throws out the black guy for wanting to see her daughter and she's like "Don't give me that racist crap. I gave money to Colin Powell." Giving money (though needed a lot of the times) is too easy a way out, and my argument would be is that the people with the cards still carry the prejudices. They have just found a cheap way to hide it.
