"Never fear. Him is here" - Captain Chaos (Dom DeLuise), Cannonball Run
Mace Windu: Then our worst fears have been realized. We must move quickly if the Jedi Order is to survive.
It is impossible to prove a negative such as someone is not a racist but there should be evidence of racism before you accuse someone of racism.
The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly, is to fill the world with fools.
I supplied the proof necessary for the conviction of a hate crime. I think that's a very logical and fair response to your question (~'how to prove racism').
I think your obsession with the difficulty of proving racism is based in a desire to make the accusation willy-nilly. It's a very ugly accusation. While I agree that racism is still prevelant in today's US, using that accusation as a constant crutch is wrong and counter-productive.
The evidence is clear. Calling Z a racist is BS.
I've noticed that you often employ the arguments of "calm down", "don't jump on me" and "why are you yelling". And each time I've seen those from you, it was BS. How about you quit playing the victim both personally and with bogus claims of racism. Pretending to be unfairly addressed looks like a mindless shill seeking emotional ass kissing.

It never fails to amaze me when I read racist hyperbole like this and then I see that the declared lean confirms every suspicion.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
I think your blanket denial of even the possibility of it in many of the stories that have been brought to this forum is symptomatic of people who don't want to face the harsh reality of it's prevalence. Just because YOU don't see something as having a racist component does not mean it does not exist. You are hardly an expert. Being emphatic about your opinion does not make your opinion right. And something doesn't need to be as extreme as a hate crime for it to be wrong.
As for my requests that people pull their panties out their ***..when they get all tied up and start throwing out accusations and behaving aggressively when it is not called for, I have every right to draw the line where I see fit.
