Given where I grew up, & that all my life I have been fascinated by colloquial American  language, it astonishes me when  certain white people think they can make their racism so coded   it can fool me.  Maybe they believe I had some sort of deluded drug-inspired epiphany that turned me into a "liberal" rather than the longer, twisting path it actually was, & at each step I had to make corresponding changes in  my use of language. I also became good at mimicry.
