    So you deny racism exists. Big surprise.

    Obviously, that's what leads to your false equivalences. You fail to include social factors in a social construct.

    I think you want to appeal to the minorities for some reason I can't understand - guilt is my best guess.
    I've no interest in appealing to anyone. Why not just call me a race traitor?

    Cant schedule around around like that. He will sell. He just needs to think it through.

    Sure, racism exists. The only difference is that I recognize racism existing by all parties, and not just whites.

    No, you call bigotry by minorities racism because you ignore real racism.

    You deny minorities can be racist because you have an agenda. You hate. And minorities are downtrodden. Thanks, in part, to you.

    Where does this nonsense about "guilt" even come from? I hear it every time someone sane mentions that blacks are victims of racism.

    Hell, about that there's not a whole lot of wiggle room--200-300 years of slavery, a 100 years of legal Jim Crow in the South and general discrimination in the North, and a plethora of residual prejudice and stereotyping ever since, from the myriad of N-Word jokes told at the office and bar to all the coded dog whistles we see in politics.

    That aside. The old coot apologized. And, this, I believe, needs to be accepted.

    I call such people racial bigots, I condemn them individually just as much as racists.

    The only racism you see is BS. You ignore the systemic bigotry that exists in our society today.
