I'm not a lawyer by any stretch but being called a "racist"...


these days is pretty common because of all the outrageous and racist sounding speech that is out in the main stream and of course, social media which is on fire when it comes to speaking whatever one feels and then it appears to be racist to those that hear/see it.

And I think there are more "real" racists that feel it's ok to come out and say whatever they want because they can get away with it, unless they are saying it while representing an employer and it comes to light, they learn they should have never opened their mouths while they try to find a new job.

Yes, in the old days we looked to the Klan or the David Dukes and think they were definitely racist, but now days, it's become common to say and do things that to many, are racist.

We've come a long way in our society and it's a long way backward in my opinion.

Also, both Bob and I have our own stories of saying something out loud in front of our folks back in the late 1950's...words we learned at school, etc. and we had to learn what and why he were never to say those words again. Parents need to get to their kids young enough to teach them before they grow up enough to not listen to them anymore.
