Well, I guess I'm in a minority. I find Paris a really unique and fascinating place to be.
Defcon 5? I pulled your card for being the type of liberal that always associates a negative with whiteness and in the process simply ignores basic human tendencies.
If you ever done any serious traveling you would know those types of places exist every where and cater to what ever ethnic and national group forms a majority. The fact that you feel such is inherently "white" is what makes it funny. Just like you making a similar comment about the inherent "whiteness" of a ****ty spike lee movie.When I refer to something as being "safe and white" I'm referring to the assumption that I, as a white person, can't handle an experience unless it's been placed in a context that is displaced from its ethnic origins. This ends up getting translated into something that is so bland that it's almost not worth experiencing at all.
It really has nothing to do with being white or western. It's just a consequence of how people are and the fact that they want a safe, relaxing holiday with no stress nor fuss.
