I challenged him to think about it. He declined.

But He did fire off an angry batshit response that was an inconceivably inappropriately ad hominem attack at me, personally. And for what? Like, shining a light on internalized racism in our society? In my view, that's a good thing. Agree or disagree, but "shooting the messenger" while avoiding a difficult discussion? We don't have time for that. I'm waaay past tiptoeing around white fragility.

it's a matter of deciding for yourself how important ultra-facility is to your
expression. ... I found, like Joseph Campbell said, if you just follow whatever
gives you a little joy or excitement or awe, then you're on the right track.
