I have a FB friend, who I don't know IRL - no mutual friends, I can't remember how he ended up on my page but he's been there forever. Dude's usually inoffensively boring. Super rightwing and churchy, but again inoffensively so. When he pops up I keep meaning to delete him but then I forget again.

Today he posts that in his opinion, there's no such thing as racism. Bad things just happen to people sometimes - it doesn't matter the race. Oddly, an African-American woman says she agrees with him. ONE person in this whole group of 10 people gets on and calls the guy ignorant for believing and SAYING this, listing all the ways that racism is alive and well.

His comeback: "Well, you just committed a hate crime against me for calling me ignorant. How do you feel about that?"
