Can you imagine how much more effective communities would be if people actually just bucked the fuck up and said,

"What I said was antiblack and I shouldn't have said it. It hurt people and it was wrong. I'm sorry and thank you to the people who corrected me. I'll try harder next time."

wow

@guerrillablack right? especially when it was an honest, unintended mistake, there is no negative consequence that might keep one from doing this. you don’t lose face, credibility, standing, or whatever else i can imagine.

on the other hand, you *did* hurt somebody without meaning to, and that should put you in some state of alarm.

the usual dodgy flip-flopping is weak af sauce.
