The problem comes when people start calling others names and in my opinion "racist" is one of the worst names out there. It implies you are white, it implies you are probably male, it implies you think you are superior to others and it is almost impossible to defend against.
I totally and completely disagree. The word "racist" is: 1) Used almost completely incorrectly anymore. It is spewed out by ignorant dolts when what they really mean is "bigot," and 2) Used sooooo much, and so incorrectly, that at this point - it has NO meaning anymore.
If someone calls you a racist, just ask them, 'So the fact that I demand and expect equal opportunity for equal ability for EVERYONE - regardless of the pallor of their skin or where they come from, that makes me a "racist"? Ok then, I'm a "racist". The word has no meaning anymore.'
And then walk away....
