Who are these people kidding? Of course, they undoubtedly work for the government. I had a close friend who worked for the government and he lived in a different stratosphere than I ever did. I hear racist comments ALL the time from the different races around me. I see racist acts committed ALL the time around me. And these people think that in all of the US there have been only 12 racist events. These sociologists are dreaming in technicolour to say the things they say. This happens when we surround ourselves with likeminded people and live off of government, no-need-to-budget, money-grows-on-trees jobs. The other day I listened to a conversation of young men, all of different backgrounds. Every sentence was enforcing some racist stereotype and could easily have resulted in hurt feelings and will undoubtedly bear fruit of some kind in the lives of those young men. I moved away from them because of the intensity of it all. As usual the government astounds us with their stupidity.
