I've had a little back and forth (I actually wrote "black and forth") with a black guy who insists that "people like me" are always looking for racism. I seriously wonder in what worlds, both physical and mental, this guy is living. I am one of those really fortunate folks who doesn't have to think about "race" all the time, which is why I'm still surprised when I see so much racism.
Have you already read "The Big Reveal?" As is generally the case, the responses tell more than the essay. If you haven't read it yet, then I published it just a few days after the first essay.
