I understand that it is dangerous for you, and that this is no game.

I wrote a long response initially to your first comments to try to explain what I had been trying to say, but it started to sound like a rebuttal, or me trying to prove something. I drew a picture with words of a small town full of white people, and started trying to show how complex it could be to try to sort out the true haters from the ignorant.

The more I studied the picture I had drawn, the more I came to realize they were all racist, and probably not worth the time and energy to sort out.

And I feel that way all the time, because that is the town I live in.

Then I start to wonder if I am worth it. Is it going to be a help or a hindrance to achieving racial equality? I don't know the answer.

I firmly believe that justice needs to be served. I firmly believe we need to root out the true haters, and eliminate their influence one way or another. And I firmly believe that attacking ignorance is a logical way to start. Starting with my own.

Nobody is woke, especially not me. Everytime I feel tinges of ego coming on I know I am going the wrong direction. Thank you for writing truth, it seems to me people are listening to you.

Old guy. Ex Democrat. Believer in karma. I’ll get mine! You’ll get yours!
