So there are racists, and then those who respond to racism with hate. I am opposed to this on every level, because I am required to respond rightly when someone who is a “minority” says something racist about me. Also, there is the problem of solutions. If someone’s racism causes me to be hateful, then I have merely joined my mocker among the ranks of hateful people. It’s counterproductive. In my mind, there are people who are fighting the societal problem of racism, and there are those who are contributing to it. If I respond wrongly, I am a contributor.
