Way to go, "Girl", you've become the racist you once criticized. Yep, those tables have turned. Oprah Lords Over White Folk, Talks Poop on XM - "Among many, many other things, Oprah talked about her humble beginnings in Mississippi, and particularly about how her mother's highest aspiration for her was that she might end up cleaning white people's houses, because 'they give away nice clothes.' And then Oprah pointed out that now that she's Oprah, she has 'all these white people' working for her, and that in fact there's only one black person on the staff. Way to turn the tables, girl."

    "If the shoe fits, wear it," but I gave up on being white a number of years ago. [Note: I did not divorce myself from my relatives, all of whom are of European descent. They are good people.] Whiteness (not ethnicity) is a social distinction that lead to racism. I've been "born again," and whiteness is too great a burden to bear.

    Alas, Helen, more were like you. Many are--I find much more racism from my own brothers and sisters than I do from the "other side". Sad, but true.

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
