    Is discussing racial differences 'racism'?
    for example...

    Sickle Cell disease very rarely occurs in non-black people
    Spanish men on average have smaller penises than white men
    Black men on average have higher blood pressure than Asian men

    I say it is called REALISM
    The PC POLICE will say it is racism...

    what say ye?

    I say "no" it isn't, but I know also that many liberals use rascism as a weapon only.

    Well I am a white male so I'm screwed on this issue in a PC world...
    In reality most people are cool to you as long as your are cool to them regardless of race.
    I am not a mean person so I pretty much get along with everyone. On the internet though I am intentionally abrasive bc that is what works.

    It is to liberals. To everyone else, it's realism. Of course, it's what you do with this information that determines your real intent.

    It is not racism to discuss these differences.

    But only a racist would start 5 separate threads on the same issue.

    The truth can never be racist.

    Only a racist idiot would think so, that said it's not the discussion that matters, it's the reason behind it.
