Very good. It is important to note that for most people to change requires a childhood that encourages questioning the status quo or extraordinary circumstances to cause them to question. The choices made to remain a supremacist, be it race or wealth, are a series of subtle choices made that do not require an examination of the consequences of both sides of a decision. Most people intuitively sense an action is in conflict with the values that have been instilled within, and their decision is made instantly and almost unconsciously.

And there are times when people do make a conscious decision such as when a parent prevents a child away from colored children at a playground, or move to an all white neighborhood. I have also observed that the wives of corporate executives don’t want to know what decisions their husbands make at work so that they don’t have to feel guilty about the posh lifestyle that they enjoy.
