OUCH!!!! Carmela?!?! Insert in the place of 'African American' any ANY other group's name and it demonstrates how animosity and hatred is spread around evenly. But that is precisely what you intended to show. Right? How playing the victim can gather violent groups together and set them up for revenge. OK. I get it, I'll shut up. Must admit I have no experience in stirring others to serve my interest.On 2006-12-11 18:04, CarmelaBear wrote:
As a white person, I'm sure I must harbor racist attitudes deep down in my soul. If I were to worry about it too much, I'd be even more neurotic than I already have become from just growing up Catholic and being American (ie, guilty of just about everything). I do my best to avoid situations where I would be perceived as competing with African Americans for anything of value. There are times when I would not want to win the race or merit the prize. Sometimes, I'd rather be dead last.
God forbid I should ever become the victim, it seems I wouldn't have the faintest clue how to ask for help.
