Being discriminated against feels bad, but being called a racist feels bad too, and since we all feel bad it pretty much evens out. Or, "why should I feel guilty… ?" as if guilty feelings are all that it will take to solve racism. To put it bluntly, feelings are irrelevant. Racism has an actual, measurable impact on society, and that's what needs to be addressed.
