You Can’t Pick Your Family

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality.” -Martin Luther King Jr.

Over on The Daily Dish, there is an ongoing discussion about how you deal with racist relatives over the holidays.  Lots of interesting suggestions about how you can handle your racist grandfather or homophobic aunt, everything from simply not attending family functions to pulling a “Colbert.”

A comment on one of those posts lead me to video on illDoctrine by Jay Smooth.  Pretty solid advice on how to handle people making racist remarks (at any time of the year.)
