Unkind Young White People

I have given the matter careful consideration, given it thoughtful, generous, and fair consideration based on my personal experience in the first half of the year 2021; and I have come to the upsetting and frightening conclusion that quite a few young white people are attempting to prove that they are not racist with an easy cop-out, by being subtly unkind to old white people in public. These unkind young white people are quite smug about it, supercilious. They do not even know me but they are certain that I should be treated badly for the imagined crime of racism, and they seem to believe that punishing me buoys themselves up into moral superiority.


Such unkindness, nevertheless, I do not return tit for tat*, I am as kind to the young dummies as humanly possible.
