. . . . What I have a problem with is the assertation that somebody is racist because they happen to notice that white guys aren't as good of dunkers as black guys.
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.
