It's Friday and The Question Is.........

As a marginalized person I have found that in order to have relationships with people who have privilege, or more specifically the ability to use their privielge to harm me, I must make constant compromises.  Sometimes this means swallowing back something bigoted they said, or avoiding certain topics because past history tells you that they will fail.  So this week's question is: how long do you let the fuckery go on before you call your friend out or end a relationship?  Is there a particular trigger that you have that means no forgiveness or understanding?

Editors Note:  This is your reminder that our first book club discussion will be Monday.  For those who still want to get in, we will be discussing the first section of Sapphire's The Kid.
