Over some heads

The danger of satire is that it will go sailing over some people's heads.The site Black People Love Us is one satire that it seems only about half the people who read it will get. So bring your satire detector on its highest setting and read about some clueless white folks and their long suffering black friends. You decide who is responsible for the site content.

I was reminded by this site of all the well meaning thin people who've told me things like, "You'd be so beautiful if you lost weight," and "I don't even think of you as fat, really!"

Be sure to read the letters section, a revelation in and of itself.
