e all racists, it’s just varying degrees,” Buford told me. “In our culture, it’s impossible not to be a racist to some degree… the priority. The first step in AA is to admit you have a problem, and the same rule applies here. “Once you accept the fact that we’re all racists, it’s just varying degrees,” Buford told me. “In our culture, it’s impossible not to be a racist to some degree.”
I disagree wholeheartedly with this statement. This is a blanket statement (confirmation bias) turned cliche that seeks to ameliorate something that is quite negative and is a self-defeating delusion. There are many of us who do not have a racist bone in our bodies, especially those who assert and maintain that there is no such thing as race, even within our race-based culture. If Buford and company continue with this charade they are essentially trying to redefine or empathize with racism as an infectious disease. A rather convenient disease for some and a terrible adversity for others to have under the social construct. Embracing racist attitudes is not morally acceptable on any level and this “naturalistic fallacy” proposition is a complete farce.
These RA meetings are merely treating racism as a bad habit and not an opportunity to invalidate the conspiratorial nature and harm behind what is really a fraudulent thought process or scam. There simply isn’t any logical, reasonable truth to racism.
