I completely share Kari S.’s views on racism and agree with her statement that “Giving attention to bigotry only strengthens racism.” She points out how ethnic groups will take a derogatory name and use it as a culturally binding force. I hate hearing an African-American man call his friend “n***a” because it makes me feel as though people like Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X, who devoted their lives to battling racism, fought in vain.

I know that as human beings we are capable of eradicating racism, and we have already come a long way. We simply need to be willing to take the last few steps and stop watering the weed. Thank you so much, Kari, for making this clear.
