I have very mixed feelings about the emotional responses from outrageous people last night. The main positive is that all of the people on here and elsewhere that like to paint America as a place where race is rarely an issue can shut the f up now. I've seen and heard many racist posts many of which include the N word. Just plain hateful and despicable things were said and it came from a real place. That's what scares me. As a black man, you try to move on with your life but the attitudes that were ever so present 50 years ago have not diminished as much as I thought they have or have been told so.
These feelings and beliefs have just been hidden and rise when provoked.
One example I saw from tumblr:
EDIT: Just check out the whole tumblr... shit is appalling.
