Racism, Bigotry, Prejudice
My friend and fellow ODBA member Alton has a excellent post up - Three Strikes, You're A Racist!
"The terms “racism” and “racist” have been too loosely thrown about lately. Much too loosely. Today, one can be labeled a racist on the basis of something as benign as a poorly phrased sentence. Or a politically incorrect thought expressed in public.
Any one of us over a certain age know first-hand of racists. Most of us know few, if any, real-world racists alive and active today."
Indeed. There are plenty of folks who are bigoted and prejudiced, but real racists are hard to find. This one is a must read my friends so click on over and tell Alton what you think. I for one will be careful of using that word in the future.
