    For White Boys Only 

    by gdill52

    New Economics is Feminist Economics,
    about cooperatively nurturing healthy nutritional investments
    rather than WinLose dyspeptic high risk
    divestment competition games.

    Have you seen a Rockwell 1950’s Lemonade Wars?
    Two girls, both white of course,
    dressed for young Republican success
    scowling at each other on a pristine deserted street
    of the tree-lined suburban variety,
    arms folded across their angry relentless middle-class chests,
    shoulders hunched down for their LoseLose anger battle.

    Each stands before her lemonade stand,
    across the street from one other,
    each with a sign that originally says 10 cents,
    but with a bold line across it,
    replaced below with a somewhat smaller 5 cents,
    also crossed out,
    followed by a 2 cents price war notice,
    about which the entire neighborhood apparently would not give 2 cents
    to get involved.

    Would this be less surprising if we were looking at two white boys?
    How about two brown-skinned boys?
    Does the humor have more of an edge to it?
    Or perhaps it’s no longer funny at all.
    Maybe more about just another racist stereotype
    about not having 2 suburban cents between them,
    about what is intelligent multicultural economic behavior.

    Do you think it more likely two girls might have formed a cooperative?
    Placed their two tables into one larger street presence,
    faced their two signs both up and down the street
    to better alert oncoming traffic,
    rather than aim them across the street at each other
    like weapons of mutual disdain,
    splitting their take at the end of a lovely day
    chattering away with and between more convivial customers.

    But, probably less likely for two boys from the 50’s and 60’s.
    Today, I’m not so sure.
    Perhaps boys and girls, and all between,
    are learning a healthier,
    more fertile,
    way of doing the math,
    finding profit through cooperative ecopolitical relationships.

    We have feminist psychology and therapy and medicine
    and politics
    and theology and history and sociology
    and probably anthropology, for all I know.
    Research and theorem proofing and disproofing
    more likely to unfold through networking circles
    of mutual nurturing
    than competitive marching in financial-support squares
    of irrational distinctions without seminal difference.

    So, why is New Economics not called Feminist EcoPolitics?
    Maybe it is, but not where I live
    and not where I have read,
    but I still hope to see more cooperative lemonade stands
    across suburban and urban and rural divides,
    blending gender divides to make lemonade out of,
    well, whatever you have of potential nourishing value,
    discarding over-heated presumptions of competition,
    to pour out equivalent assumptions of cooperative ecopolitics,
    where Golden Rules apply transgenderally
    as Golden Ratios reply transculturally,
    producing Golden Elixirs of inclusive consumer satisfaction;
    this day we will have done well.

    According to the latest statistics, White People’s dominance is dwindling fast in the United States and, because it is, many of them are having a tough time managing their new reality, which, we are now finding, is impacting all of us greatly.

    Consequently, IT IS A WHITE THING/ISSUE was launched as an open forum where anyone can post directly to its blog advice and observations to help White People manage their transition to a minority status as humanely and with the least amount of negative impact as possible.

    So, come join us and do your part to help make the world a better place by helping to make White People better understand their new place within it.
