Stance: I don’t know where skeptics are coming from, but I engage anyway.
Description: Confused, agitated, but determined
Motto: “I’m going in!”
When people do things that show they don’t think racism is a problem, you feel compelled to do something, even if really don’t feel like it right then. You can’t imagine how they can be so blind, and it bugs you that they are. Still, you usually feel compelled to do something in the moment or soon thereafter.
