this is my take too.

Tell me this is not true. People in general conversation talk one way but in smaller groups probe for true feelings about race and if certain signals are returned the conversation turns racist real fast and continues with great gusto. As a white guy I have stood by and watched this many a time and if I say something in defense of the race of people being talked about the conversation sharply reverts back to the two faced politically correct crap that is the current soup de jour.
