    for those of us who've spent a lifetime engaging those hard questions since a young age, comments like this seem a few decades late to the conversation.  I'm never quite sure why the assumption is made that people haven't ever thought about these things, especially around here.

    Let me just say if I accused you of racism, that might provoke a reaction in you.  Before engaging in blanket statements of any kind (accusations, or just generalizations), maybe take a moment to consider that humanity is insanely diverse, and any group is also so diverse as to make that generalization inaccurate, whatever it is.

      for me, it has been a conclusion drawn from the thoughtless things people have been saying around race on this site since I joined.
