This being the time of year when many people honor and reflect upon the heritage and contributions of Americans who are black while others lament the concept as being divisive, I thought I pose this question. What's worse: accusing someone of being a racist or actually being a racist? Confession: The question was inspired by a TV interview show I surfed through this morning.
Although this is a question I've ponder for some time, I've never heard it put so concisely.
The question assumes the person accusing someone, some group or some practice of racism as well as the person, group or practice of being racist is the personal opinion of the accuser/observer and no trial by jury has occurred to establish proof beyond a reasonable doubt, just like in real life.
