I try to be a gracious, well-mannered dinner guest, and a good listener; or so I'm told. It's what I reflect about over the dinner that may give people indigestion and pause. As acquaintances and friends sometimes ask me: "Eric, why do you often steer dinner discussions toward issues of racism?"

Since nude pictures of Amber Rose surfaced last week, Rose has been put on the defensive.
The graphic, NSFW pictures, which depict her posing nude in high heels and touching herself, apparently in the privacy of her home, were leaked to MediaTakeout.com, a celebrity gossip site.Many have been quick to judge and shame Rose in the aftermath of their release, suggesting that the pictures prove something new or unsightly about her or her career. At the same time, they fail to acknowledge that there's little difference between posing provocatively in a magazine, for which she has achieved praise and compensation, and posing fully nude in the manner that Rose has done in the leaked pics. Their contradictory opinion shows that her current predicament is symptomatic of a culture in which we reward women for being as sexy as possible, but look down on them or judge them for actually having sex.
