What is the best method to abolish racism.


If you listen to Conservatives and their Human Shields they have the perfect solution for racism, just pretend it Doesn't exist anymore. Sorry to pull your head from the sand, but it still exists. What happened to George Floyd? They he get murdered because he was a Black Conservative? I have been fighting racism for all my natural life and since the days of 1854, the Republicans still hasn't got a clue what racism really is. Racism is more abstract that skin color and name calling. It's systemic for a reason.
I write about in my blog.

1. White people turn off Aretha Franklin and only park next to white cars?

Racist humor is okay?

You DO know that telling racist jokes is part of systemic racism, right? But you laugh even harder at white people telling anti-black jokes.

Gotcha.

2. I may have misunderstood

I think the blog was labeling that sort of thing as racist. I don't think he was laughing at them at all.

3. From the "essay"

"I think racist humor is A.O.K. Anytime I heard Black comedians make fun of White people, I laughed, and I laughed hard. If a White comedian was making fun of Black people, I laughed even harder. Does that make me a racist? You say “yes”? Then, you are a double agent for the Right wing that has infiltrated the Left."

4. The "subconscious racist acts" you have compiled may be common to you, but

they are not common to others. In fact, they are mostly quite odd.

Example:
"When entering a parking lot filled with cars of various colors, you always park next to a car that is white."

..... uhmmmmm...... nobody does this but you.

There are tons of subconscious racist acts floating around in our society.

These aren't them.

Especially those targeting black people. So, take from that what you will...

7. I don't think there are racist and non racist.

Just different places on the curve. Education is the key.
The term race is invalid according to science. There are more genetic difference within the the so called races than between them.

9. I also think a lot of people actually mean 'culture'

when they talk about race.

I'll confess that I am a hell of a lot more comfortable around college educated and erudite African Americans who share my culture than I will ever be around even the most lilly-white person who speaks with a inner-city vernacular and listens to rap and hip-hop. I'd *love* to hang with Cornelius West and would not care to with Eminem. Skin color is pretty much under my radar after 20+ years in a corporate world where, to its credit, my big evil company did an excellent job of promoting people of color, but use 'axe' instead of 'ask' and I'm immediately uncomfortable.
