It’s the Boulder liberal attitude versus the KKK,” says Derrick Jones, a black professor at Naropa living in Boulder. He’s trying to decide what’s worse.
“For me, I can respect to a degree someone who identifies as a member of the KKK and is out with their views. It’s a little easier to take in, digest and in some degree respect than to encounter racism denial, because I know what I’m getting. It’s a little harder to accept the racist activity or the perpetuation of a privilege structure from someone who claims to be colorblind or not racist or liberal.”
