Read the following quote, and tell me if YOU think the writer is a racist or not:
I know in my heart, that I’m not racist. I’ve been called that before and it’s hurts because I like to think I’m not a prejudiced person. I’m LGBT and liberal - and I like to think I would extend the same respect to people that I would like to receive. I have noticed that for myself, and my experiences (obviously not all black people are like this) but whenever you say something bad to a black person, even when it doesn’t pertain to them being black, racism comes up in the conversation. It’s extremely frustrating to have conversations and discussions. I feel like I’m walking on eggshells so as to not be accused of racism. I dunno. I’ve never said this out loud, or to anyone before. Just thoughts I’ve been trying to work out in my head for a while, and this whole fiasco is just bringing it to light so much more than before.
Now tell me if you think this person quoted here is homophobic:
I’m not gay. To be honest, I never really think about the plights of gay people beyond gay marriage, or people calling gays names. I’m black, and I think about the shit my people go through. I’m sorry that I’m particularly neutral about gays. You should really worry about the real homophobes who want to kill gay people. I’m just a girl with a blog who made a silly post a month or so ago without doing any research.
Please give a reason for your response.
