On my recent trip back from road trip, I couldn't help but appreciate Chris Rock's commentary on "being white" when he said "I always viewed being white like always having five bucks in your pocket."

Sitting in line at a border patrol station just east of El Paso, I watched a hispanic family in a van get inspected relatively thoroughly, and couldn't help but giggle at the "inspection" that awaited me:
Are you a U.S. citizen?
...Is that a yes or a no?
yes. (-_-)
Have a nice day.

I feel secure.
