    like the ones you mention, Denise, is that by 'blaming the victim' a person's whole world view is protected.  It seems to me that their whole house of cards would fall down if they admitted that white racism was creating these horrific crimes.

    You know what I have been doing out of anger for a while now?  Whenever anyone asks me for whatever reason any question relating to my race or skin color, I respond defiantly:

    "I am a person of color.  I refuse to be categorized as 'white' because I personally have never seen a 'white person.'   Rather I am a somewhat taupey beige person on a spectrum of color from dark brown to very light beige."

    My own personal protest.  Thank you for your diary and your challenge to us 'beige folks.'
