I never thought of myself as a racist. I understand the difference between being a racist and practicing discrimination as well as their legal ramifications. Based on the “other side’s assessment” of me, I am a racist because I am a white, heterosexual male.
It does not matter that I am one quarter Spanish. It does not matter that I have hired employees of every race based only on qualifications. It does not matter that I do not consider myself to be a racist. It only matters that the nation’s perception as put forth by the political elite and the media is that the people who built this country are evil, white, Christian racists.
So I have a question: what is the definition of a racist today? Or is it a nebulous label used to justify attacks based on political ideology? We all know the answer. We all know where this is headed. I don’t know how a “racist” acts or reacts to attacks but I do know that I will protect my kith and kin. And I know that I will judge people according to their actions, words and the Bible.
