    Plus, frankly most of them are clueless enough that they don't even realise it's racism etc.
    Well yes, absolutely. I've said it before but this is the nature of all racists. They think they're just telling the truth, not realising that their beliefs are grounded in racist ideology/rhetoric.

    There really needs to be a more progressive conversation about racism and what it really is. This notion that it's about 'hate' is proper Racism 101 stuff. Modern racism is all about deeply engrained codes and imbalances. Believing you're not racist is probably the biggest indicator that you are - the minute you close yourself to the possibility that you've more to learn and understand (and stop listening as a result) you're in trouble.
