Quite a few years back during my tenure with the feds, we were having our annual refresher training. Part of that was the EEO/Diversity refresher. The instructor was a senior department head who made more than twice my pay. He came from an educated well-off family. But, his skin was darker than mine. We literally wound up standing eye to eye and pounding on the table screaming at each other as he told me what a racist I was for not recognizing my inherent racism.
