He would be proud of me for seeing through the bullshit you’re peddling buddy. I bet you don’t know the half of the stuff he said about racists yourself, like:

“The white man needs the Negro to free him of his guilt.”

“I became so enamored of the insights of liberalism that I almost fell into the trap of accepting uncritically everything it encompassed.”

“Liberalism failed to see that reason by itself is little more than an instrument to justify a man's defensive ways of thinking.”

“There must be a recognition on the part of everyone in this nation that America is still a racist country.”

“Whites, it must frankly be said, are not putting in a similar effort to re-educate themselves out of their racial ignorance.”

He said this too. Try visiting his museum to see all of what he said. Don’t cherry-pick the usual White talking points to make you feel good about your racism.
