"Don't mention the war"
The best similie I've heard today about this: Imagine you are a rich white man living in South Central L.A. or Harlem and every year on the anniversary of the Emancipation Proclaimation you dress in a Confederate Army uniform, go out on your porch with a megaphone and spend an hour singing "Dixie" and yelling "Nigger, nigger, nigger." Then you spend the rest of year complaining to your wife and family that the neigbours don't like you and you just can't understand why.
