I’m not worried about purple people. The Purple People Eater got them all, back in 1958.

Do a google image search on ‘colloidal silver side effects’ to have a look at purple people.

That is a theme I see in some fellow white-folks. Being willing to talk about specific problems in different minority communities is more useful and better for creating social change than simply saying “I don’t care if someone is a…” or “I like…”. Well congrats! You can do the basic human thing of being willing to let someone exist without active prejudice!

I really don’t remember what book it’s from, and have no idea whether it’s where the purple people eater originates, but I vaguely remember a joke along the lines of:
(Kid 1 scares Kid 2 with the notion of the purple people eater)
Kid 2: “But I’m not purple!”
