Everyone is a racist.
Blacks are made of chocolate; whites vanilla.
I can think of few presidents who are less racist than Donald Trump. That smear is so unjustified. But the race card is what the Dems always resort to, even when it is inappropriate. The smear tells you more about the Dems than the person smeared.
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.
The racism today is against whites.
A change in mindset. You are sitting in a subway car and across from you, also sitting, is a motley string of people facing you — the old, the young, the astute, the lost, the excited, the indifferent, etc. But see each person first and foremost as an individual and then, way down the list, if at all, as a member of a particular race.
