anyway this was my response basically saying about the same thing you were saying. but still even then part of me still wants to see him fired
while my first reaction was anger (and i still am angry) and would LOVE to see his ass fired.....i cant help but to admit that some of what madam anya said has alot of validity to it......the more you show anger and outrage the more effect an idiot can have. this is what he WANTED (controversy)...he wanted to feel important by making black women feel low and to actually be hurt by what he said or else he wouldnt have said it on purpose like he did. For us to feel angry or hurt only gives him power and makes him feel like his opinion of us is actually important to us and like we should GIVE a crap about what he thinks because he's suppose to be the great white man.
It's kind of like what paul mooney said about taking the bite out of the n-word.
this is not to get confused with systematic racism and racial profiling and the civil rights movement and things of that nature..those are all more IMPORTANT and detramental forms of racism that can actually hinder a person and they SHOULDN'T be ignored or looked over.
while i admit i was very angered and what he said was hurtful these are just words and i have to question why i even allowed myself to give into it and feel the way i did about it...because i do believe that he was simply reiterating what about 90% of non-blacks (and alot of other black people) feel about black women anyway....so why does his opinion actually matter (wish i could find a better word) to me?
perhaps if he would get no reaction whatsoever from black people that would have even more of an effect than reacting in outrage and we would win the psychological battle because then he and other whites who think like him wont feel so great.
