    Started in the CDZ in an effort to keep name-calling to a minimum. I'm sure we can all do that.

    Quick background: I'm of mixed race (half Hispanic half European), my wife is also of mixed race, as are (obviously) our beautiful children. Our Christmastime family photos put any Celebrate Diversity! poster to shame, from Spanish & Mexican to Japanese to Nigerian. Not a full-bloody whitey amongst us.

    Perhaps as a result, I take the terms "racist" and "racism" very seriously, and it saddens me to see the way the terms have been diluted and trivialized by people who feel they gain advantage by spraying them around like water.

    So let's see where we stand. Please identify all terms you would normally feel are racist, and please comment, thanks.

    For the record, I picked #6 and #7. I think #5 is borderline, and would depend on the situation.

    What does your poll even mean?

    Do you really expect me to believe you wake up everyday and look at your color of your skin and says that defines you or someone else?

    I picked 7. I disagree with 6 as it doesnt seem like actual racism. It sounds more like generalizing a situation or something

    When you use races as a political bludgeon against your opponents ie Republicans are racist, all whites are racist. Well sugar. That’s racist.

    Did I say that?

    Straw man arguments help nothing. It's a very serious question. If you don't want to address it, don't.
