265. Now I get you. You are one of those people who want everyone to "be the better person"
so you can pretend that the bigotry that exists does less damage than it does. You want a white wash. Well sorry, you're not getting off the hook that easily. Bigotry is ugly, and it does damage. You don't like my anger? Too fucking bad. I have EVERY right to my anger and I don't have to pretend that things are less bad than they are in order to make you feel better about it. THAT is the problem in this country. We spend too much time whitewashing real pain, especially when it has been deliberately inflicted, in order to avoid dealing with the ugly mess that is this country's legacy.

And as for constructive solutions, you don't have any. All you have is excuses for bigotry and you have the nerve to expect me to act as though it's okay to brush it aside and act like it doesn't matter? Well it does matter, it's not okay, and there's no fucking excuse for it.

If you can't understand that simple concept then there's really no point in talking. Excuse makers for bigotry are as bad as the fucking bigots themselves and they can all go to hell. I am under no obligation to make you feel better about it. If that's what you want perhaps you might want to talk to Michael Steele, he's used to playing the clown and playing whatever role white people feel comfortable with. Your comfort is not my concern.
