At yesterday’s community meeting, I heard an interesting thing. Somebody asked a white minister if he was racist. The answer was something I like, even though I’ve since modified it somewhat. It goes like this:
I am part of a racist community, but I try not to be racist. Still, because I know that I am tainted by this community, I will try not to become defensive when you show me ways that I am racist.
