    White Men Can't Dunk (continued)

    Sincerely, I hope you don't have me in mind here. I never used the word racist, and I did not use it (I know my own mind fairly well) because I did not believe the original comment was racist.

    I took issue only with differentiating between white and black, because, it seems to me, it's not a useful distinction; it is, often, harmful. I did not impute these intentions, though, to the poster who made the comment.

    The 'assertion of racism' is your interpretation of what was said here, not mine.

    Bottom line, we disagree. Nothing unusual about that on these boards.

    I think you may wish to do this via PM and not by opening a dedicated thread for it.

    I suggested that or opening a new thread, but in light of this being a volatile subject with really only two participants thus far, PMs would be your best bet.


    Forever trying to find a cure for the Dunning-Kruger Effect.
