How America Spreads the Disease that is Racism by not Confronting Racist Family Members and Friends
April Harter, LCSW

This scale is ultra “politically correct,” which also is a mental disease much like racism is. Personally, I fight every day and have been fighting in a very public way since childhood, actually, for civil rights and a better integrated and cohesive society. What this scale does is marginalize certain truths as being un-aware, which in and of itself is problematic.

The ‘all or nothing’ attitude is divisive and not conducive to building a stronger US. The denial that racists come in all colors and cultures is one of the largest threats to all of us who are working to build a better tomorrow.

If we are going to work together we have to come together and form teams regardless of who we are, not by setting each other apart and refusing to listen. Peace will not happen in a vacuum.
