    Hi all

    Stupidly I ended an email of complaint to my Indian boss with "is this because I'm white?".

    Is this racist?

    How about if I said "are you racist?" ?
    (which is what I meant)

    There are some people here that will claim labeling someone a racist means that you are the racist.

    I don't agree with them.

    What you did was pretty stupid...:lol:

    According to the politically correct people in this country you are a racist. Obviously, you are white. Therefore you are a racist. Only white people (and oriental Asians!) are racist. Get it? :lol:

    I don't know if you're a racist, Richard.

    But your closing question certainly would make people assume you are obsessed with race issues...and thats pretty much what saner people think pretty much defines a racist.

    That is also why when some conservatives make the observation that some liberal are racists, I tend to agree with them.

    Some liberals are as obsessed with issues of race, as your closing makes you appear to be.

    This is your first post? The fact that you said he was your "indian" boss says a lot about you.

    Nothing.

    That's why I didn't say that I thought he was a liberal.

    Read my post again, only this time, try reading it without you own bias.
