No racists here; we are gated.

Peter Goodwin
New York, NY

We have separated ourselves into separate communities, sometimes with physical gates, often with mental or emotional gates, and so have very little contact with the ‘other’. And we can pretend that that we have no residue of racism in our emotional make-up while never having any contact with people of different ethnicities, never challenging our prejudices.
