A video of a white mother breaking down in tears about how she's "not a racist, dammit!" at a Missouri school district's community forum has gone viral.

Oh that sounds like the least believable "I'm not a racist" in the history of America, and I didn't even listen to it yet.

"She is one of the most innocent little girls in the whole world, and she has friends, Black and white kids in her classroom, and she doesn't see any difference," she said.

Because nothing signals non-racism like the phrase "I don't see color." Now tell us about your bones. Do you have a racist bone in your body?

Usually.  One of my favorites though was a friend of mine listening to a diatribe about Filipinos.  He patiently sat through this mess, and then said: "Well, I gotta say I'm not a racist but... <nice long pause> you - you are."  And walked away.  I gave him a round of farking applause.  As did the other 3 people that weren't Mr. Racist.

/in a surprising plot twist, Mr. Racist actually took that to heart

///they mostly said yes, and he did try to change that behavior - some success some failure but he did make the effort

This.

Honestly the best thing for them would be to think. "Ok, I'm a racist, now what should I do with this information?"

Like many things, step 1 is admitting you have a problem.

It's time we had a real, honest conversation about race in this country. Unless you try to participate in that conversation with anything other than "Wow, I really have a lot to learn. Thank you for telling me what I should think." Then we'll publicly shame you and try to ruin your life.

The problem with Critical Race Theory is that its an academic concept, for the consideration and debate of academics. Having some warmed over version of it pass through the classrooms of mediocre teachers to dipshiat kids and their dipshiat parents has turned it into what it is today: a club to be wielded by people who don't understand it to bludgeon other people who don't understand it.

I (a white person) have lived in multiple countries, and many, many times I've found myself in awkward conversations (usually with a partner's parents or similar) when someone has gone on about the evils of immigrants, with them buying up all the houses or whatever their bugbear of the day is.

When I politely point out that I... ummm... am an immigrant, they do the usual "Oh, I don't mean people like you, of course!".

Just say it. You means non-white people, don't you, not immigrants?

I had to look it up. I never heard of it. All I knew about it was that Mallard Fillmore was losing his shiat about it a few months ago. It's basically exploring race as a construct, and how the construct of race affects the legal system. Shines a pretty bright light on why right-wingers are freaking out about it, because they're big on passing racist laws that don't look racist, like voter ID requirements. Exploring invisible injustice in the law is a great way to get the majority to lose their entire minds.

This.

Critical race theory is way above elementary or even high school level. We're going to get teachers explaining it in ways it's not meant to be discussed, and causing more harm than good.

All that said, race relations can and should be taught early and often. Instead of pretending we "don't see race" we should acknowledge that we DO see it, and the impact of it, and how to avoid the negative effects.

An entire generation of people were taught not to see color, to not use the color of a persons skin as their defining characteristic.  They were taught that racism is denying people an opportunity because of the color of their skin and it's wrong to do that among other things.  They've lived their lives according to that.  Now the definition of racism has changed and morons are calling those people racists for doing what they were taught in school.  It's dumb and counterproductive.

It's like screaming in a preschool parents' meeting "Stop teaching my children Baudrillard's simulacra postmoderism theory!!".

So a guy with no kids in the school district, complaining about a school's curriculum, which the school district has stated isn't actually in the curriculum, held a forum without the school officials there.  Yeah, I'm with Kelly O'Brian here: "This is an echo chamber of white people," she said as she was booed by the crowd.

Quickest way to find out if someone really doesn't see race or color is to point out that there is no such thing as a white or black race and those classifications were fabricated solely to create a class structure to give one group an advantage over another group based on something super convenient to identify . The level at which they lose their shiat will tell you how much of their identity is really tied to "whiteness" and white supremacy.

The majority of people who breech their visa conditions in multiple Western countries (politely called "over stayers" rather than "illegal immigrants") are British and Australians, usually backpackers.

Oddly enough, this horde of white illegal immigrants are rarely, if ever, mentioned.

This bears repeating.  It peaked in the 1990's but "race is only skin deep" was kind of necessary for 30 years or so just to get people to wrap their heads around the concept of other races being people in a more concrete sense.  We're moving on.
