We're making fun of all those people that call people racists for things that are clearly not racist. It's therapeutic, a way to let off steam, and
point out some of the absurdities of thought that seems to be prominent in some circles.
I mean I've seriously been called racist because I refuse to acknowledge race and insist a black man is just human. The argument of course being that
by doing so I supposedly am refusing to acknowledge that people discriminate against people for having black skin. As if I can't acknowledge people
are bigoted idiots without also buying into their belief of race.
I'm a red head, there are places people honestly hate us gingers. No one considers ginger a race, but we can all mostly acknowledge that people who
judge people for the color of their hair are bigots deserving of ridicule for their beliefs. So why can't I do that with skin color?
I know I'm not racist. But according to some really stupid people I am.
Have you never been called racist for an obscenely stupid non racist thing?
