As a white person, I have to say, I truly understand why you feel that way. Just looking at some things I myself said and thoought 15+ years ago, I cringe. I'm just lucky I already had a few black friends who knew where my heart is and they schooled me well. But I know a whole lot of white people are not open to being schooled.
