I understand what Whoopi means about reacting to racism, but that still doesn't make it right. When do we stop reacting to what was done to our ancestors and live our own lives? When do we stop assuming that those of a different race will treat us a certain way because we were treated unfairly by other persons of that race? Why should I be punished for what others of my race have done? When will we stand up, say enough, and start treating everyone as an individual instead of as a representative of their race, sex or ethnicity?
