Nice of you to be so synical, but since nobody was accusing me of being racist, the definition doesn't fit, nor was it the premise for starting this thread. If you must know, it was birthed from all the Zimmerman threads, however I did not want to include that story b/c I don't want this thread derailed. There are already 10 threads about that so let's try not to go there. Now, what were you accusing me of again?It is commonly used to clear and absolve oneself from suspicion of racism, xenophobia or other kinds of prejudice. It is a particular form of the "Not prejudiced, but..." statement.
