I have to remind myself of this often. There is someone in my life that is such an authentic close minded ass. The most dangerous kind of person, in my opinion, is the person who pretends not to be racist or believes themselves to be above the people they pretend to help. I'd much rather you let everyone know exactly where you stand so we know how to proceed. But I see this person so clearly. And spend a lot of time wishing (plotting really) that I could get others to see this too.
And then I remind myself hat nothing good comes from forcing an outcome. And I remind myself that someday someone -maybe everyone- will see this person crystal clear.
