But at least the pews never attend yoga!

I can't vote in your poll, because whether or not I would be offended depends on your race, and also context/your intent.

I don't like peeps, and now that I found out there aren't any black ones, I hate them even more.

Technically the peeps are the chick shaped ones. Everything else is peep-like. Do I need to school you all on peep classification?

Geeky is my hero. She's the true badass. The badass who doesn't even need to be a badass. There aren't enough O's in cool to describe her.

For me, the title in itself does not offend me, so that was my vote.

I think peeps are yummy. I like the white ones best because they have less food coloring in them. Or maybe I am suffering from internalized peepism!

That's why I didn't bat an eye when Ani started her thread entitled, "Question for my white peeps." She's half white herself, so I didn't think she meant for it to be offensive.

I *do* find it offensive when someone who is white tries to talk to me about stereotypical stuff they think black folk have an interest in. It happens to me very rarely, but when it does, it is definitely cringe-worthy.
