Seriously. I’m sick of watching white people debate whether there is still racism.
I’ve ranted before about how we tend to listen to people who already support what we previously believed as opposed to experts who may challenge our assumptions.
It bugs me when people listen to TV commentators to decide whether climate change exists, or pay attention to celebrities to determine whether they should vaccinate their kids, or read blogs from angry gun owners to interpret the meaning of the Constitution.
Deciding that racism is over by talking to all your white friends is on par with these mistakes. Listen to the experts.
