“Not All!”
Son of Baldwin

I often find the “not all!” people to be pretty racist. They haven’t studied the issues enough to understand them or where you’re coming from, they’re more concerned with their own feelings. I have worked my tail off to be open-minded, understanding and accepting of all demographics, but when some people say that all whites are racists, I have to agree — I don’t think we can be any other way in this culture. The best we can do is to be aware, especially self-aware, and fight back. And let me just add — when someone such as yourself just generically refers to whites as this or that, it does hurt, but that’s not a bad thing either; it’s another opportunity for that self-reflection.
