I just wanted to say that your blog does make a difference. When I began reading, my white privilege starting acting up right away. I was responding to your posts with the same sort of defensive, close minded bullshit you get every day. It is hard, really hard, for people to admit to themselves that they are wrong, especially when it is such an unsightly, extreme, embarrassing wrong like racism. The more I read though, the more I feel prone to take up the cause and the more I talk about it to others, knowing that talking about it is not a lost cause - that I was able to overcome my privileged auto-responses in order to listen and thus, so will others.
