    A white person dismissing a job applicant because he's black would be one example.

    You are lumping all black people into your word "they" and predicting that they'll act all offended by something that isn't racist.

    Hey, you can be racist without using racist jargon!

    Wrong.

    In the context of my post, "they" is singular, not plural.

    If I said he, you'd accuse me of sexism.

    I'm just playing. You see jokes about that stuff on TV. Like "Me, Myself, and Irene."

    He says to the midget, black, limo driver: "Do you people take checks?"

    The limo driver says, "What do you mean, you people?"

    You know it's true. When have I ever accused you of being sexist? Oh, and the singular they? Who that be?
