[hgxycxjg] Some of my worst enemies are white

The sterotypical racist claims, "Some of my best friends are black" to confuse the issue.  This can be made more effective -- more confusing -- by also adding, "Some of my worst enemies are white."  Even more intensely: "Some of the people who I would join in the celebration of their lynching, who I would feel the greatest pleasure in the world in their destruction, are white."

The likely truth is, things really are quite confusing, and labeling things as black and white, or black versus white, is good for politics (for both sides), but not good for understanding.
