The situation is this:
One guy calls another person an ape in the internet, without visibly seeing him.
This person then reveals to the other guy that he is black, and then continues to accuse the other guy of racism for calling him an ape.
The first guy explains that he didn't know that the other person was black, but that he would not change his mind, because he made the comment without knowing what the second person's race was, and changing it once knowing what his race is would be wrong.
The second guy claims that he is still racist because he did not change his opinion once he was informed about the race.
Now my question is this:
Is the first guy a racist?
Edit: Please add a poll, and make it public.
