Throw away the idea that good people don't have racist and antisemitic preconceptions. Saying "I'm not racist!" is a little like saying "I don't have air in my lungs." Racism is in the air we breathe. The morality doesn't come into whether we were indoctrinated with racist ideas or not, because we are and it's not a matter of choice. The morality is in how we deal with our indoctrination. Do we deny it and double down to become complicit, or face it and dismantle it?

We live with racist ideas and we will die with them. But we can try to do better instead of clinging to the idea that we are Good People who do not need to learn or change. That's just bullshit.

@ljwrites some honkey, immediately: “ok but where’s your EvIdEncE that I have air in my lungs, huh?! You can’t prove it!!”

@s0 Well I'm certainly willing to make the "no air in lungs" scenario a reality for them...
