    For example, would it be racist if one stated that black men are, on average, taller than Asian men?

    Would it be racist to state that, statistically speaking, American Caucasians are more likely to be arrested for a crime than an Asian-American?

    I would hope that the reader is smart enough to understand that, of course it is "per capita".

    All references to, and comments about, race must first be cleared through the Regressive Left Thought & Word Control Center (RLTWCC), from which you will be given final notice within three (3) working days.

    I thought everyone knew this.

    Benjamin Disreali said, "Mendacity comes in three forms.. Lies, Damned Lies and Statistics'.

    When you guys pull these statistics out of your asses to support your racism and slander minorities, and call them "Facts", that is totally racist,dude.

    Happy to have cleared this up for you.

    Really? And when did this happen.

    Hey, guy, the only people who've gotten in to trouble for saying racist things are the ones who slipped up and said openly racist things... Like Rosanne Barr.

    Who only got fired after 30 years of this sort of crap, and everyone remembered she was crazy.

    Thanks. So it IS racist to say that black men are, on average, taller than Asian men, correct?

    The fact that you even feel compelled to differentiate between “black” men, and “Asian” men; was all that was necessary to cement the racism in your post...
