I'm so very sick and tired of the denialists in this country acting like this word is in the past. I've heard this word all of my life, and if you're not hearing it, it's because you don't want to.
 
Let me make something clear. People who cannot face the reality that this country was founded and functions on genocide and slavery are in no position to judge their own (or this country's) propensity for racism. Your entire society is drenched in it, and you intentionally remain clueless. The fact that any white person has the audacity to feign outrage when their auto-response racism is questioned, is in and of itself a racist response, and the fact that you do not understand the society you live in and its intentional imbalance voids your fabricated opinion.
 
The easiest thing to do in a country that is denying its own racism is to deny your own racism. You'll get a boat load of sympathetic individuals who are as equally in denial as you are. Some fool in denial is sure to call this another 'bad apple' or some other deflection, but I have no doubt that every television network, every news bureau, every politician, and half of the public figures in this country get that word, mailed, emailed, faxed, phoned, or screamed at them on a daily basis, and to question a Civil Rights Leader's veracity about being called it - rather than face the deep seeded and purposeful hatred in this country - is beyond offensive and intolerable.

The continuous failure of this country to recognize it's inescapable connection to (and foundation on) racism and hate, is revolting and embarrassing. Every day it is exposed, and every day it is denied. Since the people in this country desperately need to be reminded:
