    Your comment ignores the fact that racism often operates at a subconscious level.  So the person doing the scrutiny may well believe he or she is not acting out of a racist motivation, when in fact that motivation is present but unconscious.

    •  Yes I did ignore that (0+ / 0-)

      that is why I added the follow up.  It does not change my contention who the best person is.  It just shows that intention is not always clear to either party in the interaction and/or a third party to that interaction. But best does not mean only.  In any interaction, any of the parties may be correct in their perception.  But every party is subject to their own experiences which affects their perception.
