Blacks in the US are more racist than whites — for good reason, given the long history of discrimination against them. But you only hear about whites as racists; never about blacks.
Yet what a heavy load to carry around with you if you are a black American who hates “whitey”. Real hatred is extremely corrosive.
Reminds me of the famous line of the mother in The Grapes of Wrath: “Did they hurt ya and make ya mean-mad? … ‘Til ya ain’t no boy nor man anymore, just a walkin’ chunk o’ mean-mad.” Slavery and all the post-slavery discrimination against blacks couldn’t help but hurt them and make them mean-mad. So it is not surprising that racism among black Americans is common — but you never hear about it.
Bravo to the black American with so strong a character that he could overcome it. I’m not sure I could have.
