The great irony again is there accusing everyone of being racist except themselves.

But they're just overtly racist.

How is that actual racism overlooked by not only the people accusing over others of being racist but hardly get away with it in broader society, essentially defining it out of existence but probably most people may be familiar with this new formulation of racism those actually recently adopted by Merriam-Webster, where it states racial prejudice plus power so the assumption is that if you are a racial minority kind of taken for granted that you cannot have social or political power.

Therefore, you cannot be racist, and it's kind of like throws the doors wide open let you hear some people still referring to saying that like a lot minority cannot be racist, but they can still demonstrate racial prejudice. Now if you're a normal person you you hear racial prejudice and you think, yes, racism.

The attitude is kind of if it's not racism. According to the new definition and it's fine. It's not that there's no real consideration about whether or not being racially prejudiced attitude seems to have flown out the window and if you you point this out. They already have ideological mechanisms in place to dismiss that out of hand like what you were saying before about if you object is taken as a sign of being racist.

That is straight out of Robin D'Angelo's white fragility, but she says explicitly that there is never a question of whether or not some act was racist. It's assumed to be racist and the only question that you get to ask is how was it racist. According to her it's a white person does anything in a situation which they are confronted by some accusation of racism if they do anything other than agree with the accusation and ask how they can improve that is taken as a example of why fragility.

So you just your borrowed from the start from being able to think critically about these things and agree or disagree with
