    The "are you racist?" thread

    Imagine that you have a beautiful blonde daughter, and you find out that she is seeing a black guy and they want to have kids together. Do you flinch or cringe at the thought? If so, you're racist.

    When someone says, "I'm not racist, but..." be prepared to note that this person is, in fact, racist. It is much like when someone says, "No offense, but you're an idiot." The "no offense" part basically has no meaning other than a weak attempt to protect the insulter from recieving retaliatory insults.

    When someone reacts to an accusation of racism by stating "Hey, I have black friends!" this is actually a racist comment, because it assumes that, if they like one or two black people, then they must surely like them all, with the subtle presumption being that they are all alike.

    "Oh magic 8-ball, will this thread turn out badly"

    Oh and I'm not a racist, but...

    I flinched at the thought of having a blonde daughter :p I think everyone has some degree of racial bias whether they can admit to themselves they do or not

    You're walking on thin ice, buddy. If you weren't so damn handsome and charming I'd've banned you on the spot for this.

    Oh yeah,

    Now I remember what I was going to say before I jumped the track.

    Technetium,

    I have to question your authority to be the OTF dictionary. You simply saying a person is racist isn't terribly convincing to me.

    That aside, I see no good (and a great potential for bad) coming from this thread so I'm pulling it's plug.
