Bringing race into the conversation shows your maturity, or lack thereof

No, that's pretty much the whole point of the observation.

In most places, people like to pay that little extra bit of exclusivity money to separate themselves from "those others" that don't look the same or aren't on the same socioeconomic level or whatever. But in this case, IMHO, the "I'm so special exclusivity drive" of those whitebread NW suburbanites who frequent AP is so strong that they pay to exclude others who are exactly the same as themselves.

He's literate and funny.  I can see why he angers you so.
