I think, now, you were genuine when you said you didn't think calling someone racist wasn't necessarily the worst thing ever to say about someone. I took it more as "it's no big deal to fling that accusation around", but you're right, I don't know that I've ever seen you do that here.
    I don't think you are racist either (AFAIK). But consider this: If someone buys a product because it is cheaper and doesn't know that it is made by people enslaved due to their race, is that person unknowingly supporting racist practices? If they are aware that the product is made by those slaves, are they choosing to support racist slavery?

    Racists can be good people in other aspects of their lives. No one is 100% good or bad.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
