Yeah… that’s another part of why I shut the conversation down on the other thread. I have no delusions that I will change his mind. As has been said repeatedly he doesn’t actually care if he is racist. He cares about being able to shout down people who call him that.

That’s not super useful. What is useful is being able to show the folly in his line of thinking to those who are willing to listen or learn. And I felt like he’d been sufficiently dumbass to accomplish that. Engaging any further was just pointing out that he was being dumb for the sake of showing him to be dumb… it made far more sense to have a more meta conversation ABOUT what happened than it was to continue that one.
