But let's call a spade a spade: If you live a life where nobody ever makes racist references, it may never occur to you that a picnic with watermelon and fried chicken is the modern equivalent of a lynching. Those of us who consider that all mankind shares our spiritual DNA, and that race is an antiquated social construct, can never catch a break. It's not enough to be blind to race, or even to refuse to be racist. The neobigots -- those who benefit financially from raising up the dark spectre of racism -- now expect you to learn the language of bigotry so that you can avoid using words that sound vaguely like something in their English-to-Racist lexicon.
So study up, boys and girls. Fill your head with racial slurs, so that you never inadvertently use a word that sounds something LIKE a racial slur. (It's sort of like learning German so that you never accidentally sound like a fascist, or learning Arabic so that you don't sound like a terrorist. Oops. There we go again.)
What a bunch of boobs. We like a robust debate, but this one just titillates. Damgummit. Now we're sexists.
