    It is true that I am making assumptions about a woman I hardly know. The observation I am based my diary on was that she clearly felt embarrassed and uncomfortable by what she said and my calling her out on it. And given how discussions of race on this particular site go, I do not feel she would be comfortable.

    She is not the "villain" of this diary. I think the comment she made was racist, but in a sort of unconscious way that underlies alot of racist feelings white people still have. This is why I used her as an example in this diary. Not so I could bully and demonize a Mother Who Works Two Jobs How Dare You Boy!

    Banking on the American people to be able to sort all this out and declare the adult in the room the winner is a very big bet. -Digby
