Eh, that would make sense only if they do something even MORE jerkish than whatever
tipped you off in the first place. In a town with no blacks it would be quite easy to make
friends wiith or even fall in love with a total bigot. If you have black friends in other places,
you might want to figure you this out before you become too close, but there are few
people in the world who are NEVER jerks in the right circumstances, so you have to pick
and choose the sensitivity of your jerk-meter...
