A humorous look at the requests of the humble washing machine and it's references to racism!

All whites together

Darks on their own

Keep coloureds separate

Racial segregation!


Powder for whites

Powder for coloureds

Liquid for delicates

Class discrimination!


Whites, coloureds

Delicates, darks

Put all in one wash

Social disruption!

Very imaginative writing. I hear there's a detergent to mix all colors and fabrics today. It's called, "Cold Water U-All." Peace, Love and God's Blessings Always, Paul.

Very clever. What an observation you've made of the country while looking at your washing machine.

Seen through the circular lens of the humble washing machine, the biogenetic field is not such a level playing field after all.
Okay you Chardonnay sipping, manipulative social engineers, choose your -ism at Judge Parker's connvenience:'diversity' (just a word not an -ism), 'multiculturalism,' ' equality,' (how quaint) 'egalitarinism,' (ah, memories) - Which will it be?
