This is very true, especially the last part.

You seem to have taken what I wrote as a personal affront to you.

Why?

If you are not a person who is abusive to others…

Or…

If you are a person who has never been on the receiving end of such abuse…

Then what I wrote does not apply to you.

I think I stated very clearly that bigotry that is backed by legislation is a form of abuse that harms all of society.

Furthermore…

YOU have not lived MY life or walked in MY shoes…

You do NOT know what I have witnessed in my life or what I have been through.

And I don’t owe you any further explanation for what I wrote.

And last but not least…

Considering who you follow on Medium and who in return follows you…

And the comments that I have read coming from so many of them…

I really can’t understand how someone who says they are not a racist would surround themselves with so many of them…

But I guess I’m supposed to be thrown off of making that astute conclusion because of your profile photo…

~Hey everybody this picture shows me hugging and kissing a POC so I can’t possibly be a racist~

Oh and by the way…

Bigots who think they are fooling anybody with their lame…

I’m not a racist…your the racist…for calling me a racist…diatribe

You know it’s really easy to figure out what’s going on.

Your offended…

but you wouldn’t be…

and you shouldn’t be…

Unless you thought what I wrote was calling you out…but that couldn’t be it because according to the garbled bunch of hooey you wrote, your childish response to what I wrote was…

Nuh uh…not me! I didn’t do it. You did it!

What a mature adult response!

If you had better reading comprehension skills then you would know that by writing such a ridiculous response to what I wrote…

You have provided some proof of who you are and shown your character, as well as your intellect.

You did that to yourself.
