When a white person stood up and said, “I’m actually not really that afraid of black people”, researchers descended to see what mesmerizing actions black people were taking to create a white person not crippled by fear. If only all black people could act like that! We can teach black people not to be scary!

Sure, I suppose you could call what I’m talking about “reverse racism,” but really any type of prejudice or discrimination towards any person based on their ethnicity or skin color is just blatant racism.

I was 18 when a friend of mine looked at me with honest eyes, and said, “You know, you’re one of the nicest black women I know.”
