Are people really gullible enough to believe that to be a 'good person,' you have to embrace anti-social authoritarian identity politics?

Tell me if you've heard some variant of this statement before: 'it's not enough to not be racist, you have to be anti-racist.'  Just think about that for a moment: isn't this really just asking all people, if you purport to be a good person, to police the speech of others?

Ironic that it's become so popular at a time when the 'anti-racist' activists are trying to have the police defunded and disbanded, but the more I see this 'anti-racist' activism, the more I see a cult like power grab!  

Do people really believe that ratting out others up to including your loved ones and friends for making remarks that may be offensive to others will make you a good person?

    The irony is just so ironic.  And you're right, it's getting out of hand.  The same thing happened in Germany in the 1930s.  Look how that ended up for them, and they even had lots of guns.

    If you're ambivalent about racism you're part of the problem. Racism is bad, plain and simple. There's no such thing as a good racist.
