the latter half of your post is a tad unclear. I disagree, because racism is generally an accusation towards an external source, whether personal or systematic. Saying one "feels another is being racist" shouldn't be enough, as not only is it a very serious accusation but also sometimes people are wrong, and projecting psychologically. Maybe I misinterpreted your analogy to pain.

My oldest son returned home with his liberal arts degree, trying to explain how this racism concept works. I told him he just spent a bunch of cash learning to be stupid. He was not appreciative of this.
I just can't see the logic. In nursing school you are taught that pain is what the patients says it is. If someone experiences pain, its an absolute: THEY experience the pain. Its their misery, perceptive to them alone. All you can say, reasonably, is that their misery is exactly as described by them.
Racism is the same. The differentiation of an act on an individual via rationalization is, itself, an atrocity. It is allowing a proxy of "tyranny of the majority", and is itself a racist assertion.
Racism is racism. Rationalization doesn't change that. It only makes one feel better about perpetrating it.

War is coming. The unnuetered white men will not put up with this for much longer and will unite and fight. Scary scary scary results from that will appear. We will not forget the traitors. Being victimized while being called the oppressor enrages me to my firey core. Bad bad bad days ahead for liberals.
