7. I have to agree

Because - this gets to a raw emotional impact of other people's unconscious actions that have been ingrained in them. It holds a mirror up.

And it also shows that in spite of their mother telling them, "there is no difference between you and THEM". There is. I think there are some posters who get this that are not AA.

But for every single one that does - there are three who will take this Man's life experience personally and go out of their way to say - well he must have been acting suspicious.

Until they understand that in their subconscious - black and male IS suspicious - they can't "get it".
