Good points…but you can rush them (whites) on the topic of racism in America. Well, you can, but it will go no where.

White Americans are heavily defended (psychologically) around race. They have to go at their own pace, because if you try to strip people of their psychological defenses, they will feel as if you are killing them and will lash out at you.

I know it sounds nuts, you want to talk about George Floyd not breathing, and the white person is going to play the victim.

It is what it is.

This is why white people go so crazy when we try to have real conversations around race. They are very heavily defended, and will fight as if their lives depended on it, when you try to get them to have conversations around race that they don’t want to have.
