33. More than once, I heard the incredulous statement

from a white acquaintance that "Obama made racism worse." They really believe this, I guess because the preacher said it because they're bigly Christian.

America is racist. Non white citizens have nothing they haven't demanded and died for, whereas I was born with the freedom of my color, not so much gender because America is also sexist, but race tops everything.

Chris Rock said, "white people were crazy, now they're less crazy." Yes, fewer whites are racist, I do believe that, maybe even the majority, but racists are still driving the madness. They're entrenched.
