When white people play the race card

I've found something more annoying and more useless to reasoned discourse than playing the race card: playing the race card when it's been dealt to someone else. In both the loony left and the loony right, European-Americans presume to lecture others on what to think and how to feel about those European-Americans' pet issues, as though one could just declare oneself to be a different racial or ethnic group's Borg Queen. Unsurprisingly, those wannabee Borg Queens often get it exactly backwards.
