20. Racists rarely change. Haters rarely stop hating. What they do, however,

is pretend they change, pretend they have seen the light, when a societal inflection point is perceived by them. When they know that society as a whole perceives them as outcasts.

When they can't wear their MAGA hats anymore.

When they can't shoot their mouths off about politics every 30 seconds without getting verbally slapped down.

So what they do is pretend they have changed, pretend they have gravitated more toward normalcy. They might even say that they were wrong. But have their hearts and minds done a 180, truly? When the next asshole with skin that is a color not found in nature comes along, will they just revert back to their old ways? Yes, they probably will.

People do what they need to do to get along in life. When it is apparent to them that the vast majority of people they encounter think they are motherfuckers, then they stop behaving like motherfuckers, just to make their lives easier. "I used to be a real motherfucker, but I'm not a motherfucker anymore. Putin sucks, man! I'm working on my racism! I support Ukraine!"

OK, that's fine. but that does not mean I have to welcome them into my life with open arms. They fucked everyone else right up the old poop chute for years without a second thought. I have no obligation to forgive that. I do have an obligation not to go out of my way to be a total prick to them, but by my way of thinking, I'm better off just politely ignoring them.

Because they revealed what they are, and the vast majority of them have not changed, and will never change. They pose a risk to me, and to my country with their gullibility.
