Quite. Plus outcry and demonstrations including violence, more support for the closet racist politicians. Where would it all end?
No, what Gordon said is right, education and raised awareness is the answer - and that sort of education should start in the home. I realise that is an ideal but I do believe in it.
All that aside, I'm sure that, in your life, you have come across people who've said stupid, thoughtless, bigoted things that you didn't like but maybe didn't take seriously at the time. Would you have those people banned from restaurants or talk to them and expose them to different ideas?
