Wow, TC...you are worse than that guy TigerAssault when it comes to understanding what someone is trying to say. But he had an excuse because he was from another country...what the hell is your excuse.
No, I'm not trying to justify racism by claiming racial guilt, you are the one trying to tie me into that racist crap for simply being white.
I'm going to try to make this as clear as possible.
I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACTIONS OF OTHER WHITE PEOPLE!
I'm not accusing you of that. I know you don't have a racist bone in your body. Of course you're not responsible for the actions of our white racist forbears long ago. Neither am I. But you and NS keep accusing me of having some sort of white guilt. Maybe so, in your minds
, I don't really give a damn one way or another what you think. But better words to describe my reactions to racism would be sadness, remorse and irritation
for the actions of some of my fellow white citizens, that they in this day and age, long after the Civil Rights Amendment was passed, are still hateful bores, who are proud of it enough to march in the streets in solidarity like a bunch of arrogant fools while blaming everyone different from themselves for their situations. We're a nation of immigrants, all different religions, races, colors and creeds. That's what's made us a strong nation, that diversity. That racism is still going on today is like someone constantly picking at a scab on purpose, so that the wound never heals. The fact that the wound never heals is why many blacks harbor those thoughts in NS's OP, that their black children may never be able to be friends with other white children, because like it or not, many of those white parents are still racists today. The only question is, who has to stop being a racist first? The Whites or the Blacks? If one side DID stop first, would the other then follow suit out of respect? Somehow, call me defeatist, I don't think so.
