    It is said this is not a defense against racism.

    I reject that. In most cases, if you have true friends of other races, you're not racist. And don't let anyone tell you differently.

    For a certain set, there IS no defense against racism. You are racist. You are racist even if you don't THINK you're racist. You are racist even if you are white and married a black man and freely chose to make your children with this man. For that set, you are white and racist and there is no escaping it.

    Reject this garbage.

    If you TRULY have friendships with people of different races and beliefs, than what better evidence is there for you being what Leftists used to value: tolerant, diverse and loving? If you share their struggles and listen to their stories and invite them into your homes and share their lives and seek to understand them, as friends do, and you love and value them as complete individuals, including their race, how can you possibly be racist?

    But of course that's not good enough now. If you have friendships with people of different values and beliefs, you must also be Down For Their Struggle. And maybe not just THEIR struggle, meaning them as individuals, but every race struggle the Powers That Be want to impose on them. IOW, you are not just you and your friend is not just your friend. But you are White and your friend is Black and that must be overlaid with all the meaning THEY want to lay on it.

    Check your heart. And if it doesn't describe you, reject it. Then maybe we can finally move forward.

    Left Wingers use race as a political weapon.
    Real racist make their politics about race.

    If your worldview is so poisonous that every single moniker that is used to describe your worldview ALSO becomes poisonous....

    Maybe it's not the monikers, see.

    Maybe it's the worldview.

    Something to think about.

    Old Racism: You can't be friends with (insert the race) because they're Not Like Us
    New Racism: You might THINK you're friends with (insert the race) but they're not really your friend if they don't understand the struggle. They're Not Like Us

    Second verse, same as the first. Or anyway, in the same key

    Racism is not about not liking someone of another group. Racism is a systematic way of harming people of another group and that requires power and systems and the collective agreement by that group to support and participate in the mistreatment of people outside that group

    The only people on the planet who systematically exhibit these kind of behaviours toward people just because they look different (no matter where they go) from North America to Africa to New Zealand and Australia, etc are white people.

    • A white supremacist would employ black people just as long as whites were in charge of employing
    • A white supremacist would sponsor black athletes, just as long as whites were in charge of the sponsoring.
    • A white supremacist can like a black person, sleep with black women, marry a black women, listen to black music, adopt a black child. They can do all that stuff but still be team white supremacy.
    There were many whites who supported slavery and and jim crow yet, managed to conjure personal kindness for individual black people.
