Comments worth commenting on

When it comes to race related comments, what’s worth commenting on?

Is it worth the energy it takes to call someone out and explain to them why what they said is slightly (or maybe even highly) concerning?

If it goes well it would probably be worth it but if the other person is adamant that there was nothing wrong with what they said, where do you go from there?

Furthermore, it’s almost as if your race becomes a burden when in certain spaces you realise that people might just be tolerating you but after a drink or two they’ll make a race related comment.

And so let’s take it full circle and ask the question of what comments are worth commenting on?

Turns out there is no set answer.
