This is a response to those who feel they have been labeled as racist, whether directly or indirectly.
LET IT GO! (or, don't be so sensitive/quit living in the past/suck it up)
Been pulled over, questioned, or flat out harassed by police because you're white?
Been followed through a store in the mall because they think you will steal because you're white?
Been ID'ed when using plastic to pay for items after the black customer in front of you was NOT ID'ed?
Had black people clutch their purses as you walk by/walk across the street as you walk towards them/walk towards a store, then double back to lock their car because you and your white friends were sitting in a nearby car?
Had school administration employees (when you were in school) act as if anything you asked help about (transcripts, counceling, etc.) was akin to asking for an arm or a leg, while black students had the red carpet rolled out for them?
Been hired for a job where you were paid LESS than the original add indicated the starting salary would be?
Had coaches/teachers make blatantly racist remarks to you and other white students simultaneously, but "always in jest?"
Gone door to door doing activist work and have black people mock you, slam the door in your face, or tell you that "I know what your kind is up to, I'm calling the cops?"
Had black people in Ford trucks run you off the road as you walked, with only your moving out of the way keeping you from becoming roadkill?
Been trick or treating (when you were a kid, I hope ) and have black people tell you they were out of candy, even though a group of black kids had just gotten candy and you could still see the big bowl of candy inside the house?
These things have little bearing on your life.
And, if you still don't want blacks to call you racist, you can greatly minimize your contact with blacks without it significantly affecting your life in America.
