Thanks Richard, that’s a good question.
With an admitted racist you know what you’re dealing with and where they stand. The “I’m not a racist” racist is more difficult to deal with and predict.
With any issue you’re asking: Which side are they really on? How are they going to act/react? What arguments, if any, will be effective in changing their minds?
I’d rather deal with an admitted racist because at least I know what they’re going to do, where they’re coming from and not to bother wasting my time trying to change their position.
With the secret ones, none of that is the case. So, I still think the secret ones are more harmful.
