"I'm a racist, and I don't want to be. I'm a white man in my very early 40s, and for years I've been extremely awkward and anxious around African Americans, especially men. At some point in my early teens, I became very self-conscious about the racial divide. And about that time, I moved to a much more homogeneously white area, and I guess gradually black people became abstractions to me or something. When I moved back to a more mixed neighborhood in college, I found I was afraid of them. Horrible thoughts and associations -- of crime, violence, whatever -- would spring to mind.

"Now it's reached the point where I can't encounter any African-American person without these thoughts cropping up, along with this seizure of panic that I'm racist, I'm giving off a funny vibe, I'm making that person feel uncomfortable and he or she can see through me and knows what's going on. It's a complex of shame and humiliation and fear that for two-plus decades I haven't been able to think my way out of, and if anything, it's only getting worse with age.

It always makes my LMMFLWAO when our lowly bottom feeder slave-descended Negroes start talking about "rednecks" and "hillbillies" when either of those are infinitely higher in the social order than some inbred low IQ cotton picker.

The racist on here are just belligerent every time I try to discuss their issues with blacks they either don't respond or they continue to go on their racist rants, they just want some attention because the smart white people with lives don't give it to them
