Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

Ill-advised? Probably. Is Ian MacKaye a despicable racist? Definitely not.

Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

It's of it's time. It seems pretty obviously a young person writing about his own experience with discrimination, not liking it. Teenage deep thought. Of course it's easy to take it the other way and say it justifies bad attitudes.
