The best argument against white supremacy is the people who become white supremacists
Via Steve Gillard, who I do not read often enough.
The undershirt the white student wore had a confederate flag on the front with the words "Keep it flying." On the back, a cartoon depicted a group of hooded Klansmen standing outside a church, waving to two others who had just pulled away in a car reading "Just married."

Two black men in nooses were being dragged behind.


"I'm not racist or anything," he said. "It's just, some people I hate, some people I don't get along with. And black people just happen to be the ones because they think they're better than everyone else."

Arguing in his favor, is the fact that the kid is aware enough to know that racism is bad. Arguing against him, is the fact that the kid is too stupid to know what the word "racism" means.

Stupid or evil, it's not an either/or question.
