That's interesting. I'm wondering why you would think to hang your head in the first place.
I don't. You seem to want me to, though.
And if you personally don't, others certainly do. I remember those "conversations about race" during the Clinton years, which consisted of little more than a-holes like Cornell West explaining to white people why we should all feel guilty for being white.
But my favorite of Cornell and others' brilliant contributions to American culture are the assertions that "anyone who says they aren't racists are racists" and "anyone who says they have black friends are racists." It's like a bunch of a-holes got together and asked each other "Okay, when we accuse people of racism, what are the most common responses? Okay, great. We'll all go around claiming that people who say that are racists."
That's just as evil and destructive as anything any slave master ever did.
