What if they tell you that they can only orgasm if they get it hard in the "bad place" and their eyes glaze over as they relate this to you?

Nine in 10 Native Americans say they are not offended by the Washington Redskins name, according to a new Washington Post poll that shows how few ordinary Indians have been persuaded by a national movement to change the football team’s moniker.

Study shows that even if you think a white person is not racist...odds are good they're still racist.

Saying that blacks are "less intelligent" makes you a racist?

But what about all the IQ tests that indicate that blacks (for whatever reason) really are less intelligent on average?

Set that aside and read more. Even if you don't have that belief you're still racist.

Basically, they say you're racist if you answer #1 yes, and smart if you answer it no. [But you're also racist if you disagree with affirmative action].

But what about all the IQ tests that indicate that blacks (for whatever reason) really are less intelligent on average? If you're aware of them and willing to admit that they exist when asked, that makes you not "smart"?

Careful, careful. You are touching the third rail of public discourse.

As a friend, I ask you to say 100 times, "Diversity is our strength" and "They are just like us". Sort of like repeating Hail Mary's

Note, that in the "They are just like us" penance, racists will assume that the "they" is Blacks, while the "they" refers to anyone that is not like you.

Yeah, I know. I just thought that was weird. Well, weird's not the right word. That implies it was surprising, which it ain't.

You're quick on the trigger. I edit chopped that all out since I didn't really read it carefully. I assume it's not actually an accurate take on the methodology.

Everyone recognizes races are different. It is ignorance to imply otherwise. Its when those differences are regarded as indicators of one races superiority over another that the term racism comes into play .Value judgements aside this is simply the dictionary definition of the term.

That's not how this new "study" defines thing. You're just saying that 'cause you're racist.
