    It's not about being tough. It's about bringing awareness to another person.

    Then I'd say courageous is a better word to describe your situation.

    I ignore racists. I have racist cousins amd I don't talk to them because of their racism. However, one of them is now on a journey around the world and jopefully it'll cure him. In that case I'll talk to him again in the first time in 8 years (I found out his ideas 8 year ago).

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    It takes too much energy to care.

    I usually confront or correct people, but if it's a member of my family and I can't change or avoid them, I will just try to ignore it passively. That way I'm not encouraging it but also not causing meaningless confrontation. Maybe some people would think it's wrong to ever let it slide, but I think it's ridiculous to keep confronting certain people who can't be avoided, like family members.

    As an aside, I think one of the coolest weapons against racism within family that I've personally witnessed is when my nephew was ten or eleven years old and would chirp pleasantly with a sly smile, "Maw-maw is a racist!" when she said something stupid. I found it embarrassed her far more than an adult trying to either angrily confront her or naggingly correct her.

    I feel this knee-jerk response to confront racist comments, though sometimes I know that subtle behavior is called for rather than something overt. I live in the South, so racism is a big subject here - my grandparents and parents taught us that racism and racist talk came from poorly bred people. Well bred people should never talk that way, they should always be courteous and kind. I grew up in a house where the black vs white thing never came up - all the blacks I knew were wonderful people. The first time I was confronted with a bunch of angry black kids ( whom I didn't know ), yelling racial slurs at me and my sister, and attempting to set my car on fire, I was completely stunned.

    When you're around racists, you need to simplify your vocabulary, speak loud, clearly, and very very slowly. It's important you use simple Kindergarten words (Most Racists didn't make it passed Kindergarten). Also, don't make jokes, use sarcasm, or make any references or allusions to outside things because they won't catch it and it might anger them.

    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Wise instruction!

    I would also add that you might want to bring a folding chair to sit in, and possibly some snacks for yourself, as the discourse with said racist could take a looooooong time.
