Some brief responses:

because we all agree with those things

No we don't, or we would act differently, and different debates would be in the foreground.

If a cop shoots another black person, there's not much to say besides "How horrible," and "ACAB."

There definitely is much more to say.

You don't see my trying to rid myself of bigotry, because: 1. I already did that

To my best understanding, nobody finishes doing this, this is a completely naive position, and I think your response here clearly belies the fact that you need to do more

that's not something people generally broadcast to others when they're doing it

You don't need to broadcast the process, necessarily. I'm saying we need to express the level of consciousness of these questions in ways that make others feel at home, and part of that means our taking on a serious engagement with them ourselves.

You cut off the rest of my sentence, where I said I am constantly on guard for bigoted thoughts. I never said I was done, I said the bulk of clearing out the muck was accomplished long ago. Now it's a constant state of upkeep.

Could you give an example? That's too vague for me to understand your meaning.
