Once Aryan Skynet Goes Live It Doesn't Matter Who Pulled The Switch
The harder you try to not be racist, the more racist you will be. You will inevitably have interactions with black people and perhaps other non-whites. Keep it business-like. Don’t let your hair down. Don’t share your feelings. That’s all for your own people.
I Have Black Friends
Sam White informs us of a minimum number of black friends one must have to avoid being racist.
For those wondering, there’s no minimum.
It is possible to have never seen a black person in your life and STILL know that certain attitudes and behaviors are inherently wrong!
This is why some people must stop using their so-called “black friends” as a buffer against being called out for racist behavior.
Having black friends, black significant others, or even bi-racial children cannot make you magically stop being racist if this is behavior you’ve long internalized.
It’s not really a friendship if you’re content to have someone in order to use him or her as a sort of “Get Out of Jail Free” card.
Engaging In “Ghetto” and “Hood” Stereotypes
As character Lionel demonstrates, there is no right or wrong way to be black in America. Some people would assume that because he has a huge afro that he’s very “Afrocentric”.
(Note: An afro is not a political statement, it’s just the way someone’s hair grows out of their head. Someone having kinky hair is perfectly natural and not at all a fashion trend…)
Telling a person that they’re only “technically black” because they don’t adhere to black stereotypes is a form of casual racism.
