You know, it's not just that whites need to be more sensitive to people of color....people of color need to stop using their race as a 'get out of responsibility free card'.

I think many people have worked with an individual who calls in all the time, shows up late, goes home early, breaks rules...and when confronted their response is 'i'll just call my civil rights lawyer'.

These people aren't being picked on because of their race, they're using it as a crutch to not meet expectations.

So while people not of color need to be a bit more open minded, those of color also need to stop looking for insult in every comment, stop looking to be offended, and stop using their race as a reason to not do the work they're expected to do.

Making racism go away is a two way street and demands work from both sides.
