And this is why people freak when called on racism.

And this is why people freak when called on racism.

I am a good person
racists are bad people
I am not a racist

because

IF you believe that the playing field is level and/ or
that God is just and merciful

THEN oppressed people in some way deserve being oppressed.

THEN you are not a bad person for oppressing these people
you certainly aren’t a bad person from benefiting from the oppression of these people by others.
and

THEN you are still a good person when you silently ignore the needs and pleas of the oppressed.
