Thank you so much for the tag. You did a fantastic job describing the nuances of racial discrimination. People often get caught up in the person or group being called rather than being concerned with the behavior that led to the discussion in the first. Deflection is a protective mechanism, but does nothing to address the roots of the racial discrimination. There is a reason people discriminate. Admitting it happens is one thing, delving into the why’s is another beast most don’t want to tackle.
