to you that they do it really early in your 'relationship' with them?
For example, remember a barber disclosing he was racist during my second haircut and a driving instructor after my second lesson.
If you were a racist (I'm not) you'd think that you might wait until maybe the 10th - 20th haircut or 10th-20th lesson to disclose such a thing. Get the measure of the person you're with to see if they're on board with your ideas. Or maybe I look like a racist (I'm not) and they think 'he'll be up for this conversation' (I'm not).
So, when do people tell YOU they're a racist?
