People who value free speech ought to think about doing what they can to retire the word “racist.” Today, the “rules” mean a member of La Raza is not a racist; a European-American who questions preferential treatment for minorities is.
Racist is a slur, with all the sophistication and precision of “commie” or “Nazi.” It is a smear tactic used by the Left. Today it says more about the intelligence of the accuser than the sins of the accused. An honest word should replace it so we can get on with the realities that there are different races.
How many races are there? No one seems to know, at least not with the precision that a number can be assigned.
The conclusion is if it’s impossible to identify precisely what is being discussed, no one knows what they are talking about. Racism needs to be replaced with an honest word
