9. It's by Another one of the Usual Suspects

It's a real doozy. I wash my hands of trying to deal with white America on these issues.

Those who are white and "get it" are doing the best they can. It's in the way their children are raised, how they respect others, and what they stand for.

But if you don't already "get it" - we're done.

Geek_tragedy, bettyellen, BainsBane - shit! Drunken Irishman, redqueen, etc etc they get it. I can have a convo with kwassa - there are many others. But if someone isn't at their level of awareness then they are wasting my time.

They can go whine about the NSA, Snowden etc etc.

Race, racism, the black American experience are simply above their head. Too many folks at DU give the impression that they "had a black friend in the third grade" and it's getting really hard to not laugh at the silly!
