I get angry letters every day from people who disagree with my paintings. I don't mind, it comes with the job. But, I think I should offer a tip to those liberals who think they got the best of me. Don't call me a "racist" if you want to sound intelligent.
We used to use the word "racist" to define people who associate themselves with groups that openly hate others based on race. For example: KKK, White Supremacist, Black Panthers, etc.
Now, if you even appear to look cross-eyed at a black person, regardless of the reason, you are slapped with the word. Some people are so afraid to be called a racist that they defend the inexcusable and turn a blind eye. The word, "racist"now is the catcall of every liberal toward anyone who doesn't agree with them. I have Conservative black friends who are also called racist for simply disagreeing with liberalism. We see only hypocrisy now, as liberals redefine the meaning and browbeat their opponents for fear.
I suggest we use the word how it should be used. If someone openly says they hate another because of the color of their skin; whether they are black white, brown or yellow---they are a racist---period. If they criticize another and they happen to look different, they are expressing their opinion; as long as it doesn't descend into racial slurs and so forth. We all know the difference, so the next time you hear the word "racist", consider how it is being used. Are they identifying another as a true racist, or trying to name call to win with a weak argument.
