That is a good point.

However, I will say that one of the benefits of white privilege is that I never, ever have to worry about mentioning my race or ethnicity, period. I don't have to worry about it outting me, and I don't have to worry about assumptions etc. I don't even have to mention it, and people will correctly guess my skin colour 99.9% of the time.

And I have to think that being able to go through my life without thinking about it, if I so choose, is significant. I choose not to--but I could.

I also have a very white-bread kind of blogroll. I'm looking around out there.

Part of the problem is that I want to read blogs that capture my attention. and it's not that I am not interested in blogs by people of other ethnicities, or by that of people with a disability (or a child with one), I just have to find that spark that keeps me there. There are plenty of blogs that I don't read all the time because they just aren't updated frequently (like mine lately) or because the "tone" just doesn't grab me. I don't know. Don't mind me -- I'm loopy with cold meds right now.

Oh, and I'm on your blogroll now! Yippee!

KLee, sorry to hear you're down and out with a cold. I'm getting a scratchy throat and expect I'll be commiserating with you in short order.

Agreed. I don't consciously exclude people. I read what grabs. Still, the results of my blogroll left me a little surprised.

I wonder what I'll do about it.
