Time to get all white Americans into 12-step programs

From The Battalion, Texas A&M's student newspaper:
Joe Feagin, professor of sociology at Texas A&M, who grew up in a predominantly white Houston neighborhood during the civil rights movement, said in a seminar Thursday that racism in the United States has changed from being an extroverted problem to an introverted one.

"There are two types of white Americans: racists and recovering racists," Feagin said.
If you're white, don't bother denying that you're racist (and don't use the old racist dodge that other ethnicities can be prejudiced as well) -- Prof. Feagin will just smile benignly at you and say you're only proving his point.
