If not that, then wouldn't the conversation's accusatory undertone result in the offender's exoneration on the grounds that 'he was raised (a certain way) to believe...'?
Maybe, the conversation would flip in the offender's favor with either (take you favorite pick), "you're taking my words out of context", "you're being racist by always thinking I'm about to say something racist" or "you're being overly sensitive and you just want me to kiss your ass (reference:south park)". You are right, but either is a tough conversation and since "undercover" racists spend their whole lives trying to be undercover, they have perfected the act of flipping the script in either scenario.
I think many WPs (obviously not all) are so very sensitive about this issue that the mere insinuation that you might be thinking about considering the idea that they are racist just leads to a downward spiral of the conversation and the knee-jerk reactions that CSRealist cites at the end of his/her comment.
I could have so used this "how-to" guide last week.
Many people don't take the time to really consider how powerful words can be. i'm sorry, but in a racist society where certain people are awarded white privilege, ALL white people are racist.
"Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me! Remember how much BS it really is when you think about it? its not about whatever your inner intentions are or if you're being PC or not, this is just the reality. , if all and bloggers made as , the than ever before.| Ahaa, its this at this , I have read all that, so me also commenting .| I am sure this has touched all the internet , its really really on building up new .| Wow, this is , my is analyzing things, I am going to her.| , !
Let's just say this re-affirms my hatred of being the only black person white people know. Holding people accountable for their words and actions does seem to be the appropriate approach. A case in point: A neighbor yelled to a brother driving too fast through our block..."you effing n" in front of our son and his son!! Hubbie had to go have that accountability chat and had him apologize to our son. I'm to start my own blog but I'm having a time between Blog Engine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The difficulty is for those that are holding the culprit to an accountability for said words or actions must maintain constant focus and verbal vigilance in order for it not to become about 'what they are'. But I know from experience that you can't allow your anger or emotional feelings that may come out to derail 'what they did' to become 'what they are'. Mind you we had just the day before, complimented him and his wife for being our 'saving grace' on the block! Of course the conversation went several times to his black friends and how much he is not a racist, but Chris brought it back each time to WHAT HE SAID!! Keep up the works guys I've you guys to blogroll.| ! The reason I ask is because your seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something .
When someone fires an arrow into you, you don't try and find out who fired the arrow and what they are all about.concentrate on getting the arrow out. Jay, You're not speaking wrong, but it feels like you're speaking idealistically.
ava, he's not arguing that whites are or are not racist, he's instead commenting on a strategic way to confront people when racism becomes apparent in their words or actions.
also, if you followed his work closer, you'd know that he does not identify as a "white boy".
Difficult, but we all need to enhance our control and focus when these issues do arise. Yes indeed accountability is what it has to be about. This is fantastic, and I think it will be great for a discussion in my class. Someone in my group shared this with us so I came to .
It's the only way to go past the fact of racism to the healing process. I feel like this is a step in the direction of focusing less on the individual (where we get into the whole identity thing, which is problematic because while people can be agents of racism or even identify as racist, racism itself resides in society) while at the same time holding people accountable, as you said, for the actions and their real effect on real people and real life.
