You forgot to mention that when you focus on what they said not who they are you also elmininate the possibility of the "Race Card" rebutal which is a bogus argument to begin with but is often used. Money and freedom way to change, may you be rich and continue to .| Woah!
Its used to display a completely different point, but it reminded me of it. You're too right about the conversation being spun to "But I'm NOT A RACIST / HOW DARE YOU." Thing is they're ALWAYS going to come at it from that point of view, because being called a racist has become more taboo than actually being one. Please reply back as I'm create and where you got this from or theme . 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. I GUARANTEE the ALL of us still have some scar from k-12 that we carry around with us because unlike the scratch or cut you got, "word wounds" DO NOT heal as cleanly. JSmooth - those are wise word tools for MANY situations. I believe if people would just take 2 seconds to engage their "brain-mouth filter" before saying ANYTHING the world would be a much better place. of course its not the fault of any individual white folks, and of course they should try to examine how white supremacism has shaped their beliefs and relationships, and listen to people of color to support the struggle against white privilege, but until that has gone away they're still very much a part of that racism. i dont like some white boy telling me how i should be having conversations about race, especially since you're convienently talking about it in a way that excuses you from being implicated as a racist. 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 it's that people know how the conversation's going to go anyway. | It's very to find out any on as compared to , as I found this at this .| Does your have a contact page? I've got some for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
So they start off wanting to get that point in first - just so they've said it. Either way, great and I look forward to seeing it over time.| ! I'm at work so I decided to your on my iphone during lunch break.
However, it does strike me as though someone might just revert back to the "But I'm not a racist" rhetoric, at least at first.
I wonder what George Lakoff would have to say about changing the racism conversation.
They'll START any rebuttal to your first words with that. be back.| I visited the audio for audio songs at this is .| , i read your blog and i own a similar one and i was just if you get a lot of spam ?
