This was a great read. I personally believe ALL white people are racist. They cannot help it because they were born into a system that demands they participate in it and it demands they uphold it willingly or otherwise. Any person unable to grasp this and is unwilling to admit this cannot be a friend of mines, cannot be an asset to any movement I work with, and can't tell me anything to make me trust them.

White people denying racism is racism.

They people don't want to admit it (fragility and shame), and Black people are eager to excuse it (looking to be good peaceful people). It's going along for the sake of getting along. If White people are unable and unwilling to admit they are racist regardless of their intentions, shouldn't be trusted.

I make a mental note and guard my person accordingly.
