Liberals can easily be racist, too

Vincent Zaal,

We come from a very liberal area and are staunch liberals ourselves and yet in people’s attempts to “not be racist” they’re being extremely racist. Humans are different, get over it! Try thinking about “race” in the French adjective placement: “that human is black” rather “than that is a black human.” Of course, this thinking is not without its own problems by marginalizing diversity and assuming all humans are the same… but it has to be better than giving the side-eye to every single person of colour that you see in the suburbs when it is the white people who are most likely to abuse substances.
