DicksnJanes #795: fragile whitey

"...the episode was not really offensive, but it was confusing. It sounded as if you were trying to stand your ground, not apologize, while looking for forgiveness and asking others to tell you what to do all at the same time. I couldn't tell if you were being sincere, or sarcastic. You sound flustered and unsure what to say. authentic, real, vulnerable, confused, and conflicted." Independent Advisory Committee
