Re: “Racial Tensions Boil Over at Berkeley High

Another comment: where's the distinction between someone, either intentionally or unintentionally, saying something "racist", versus going and labelling someone "a racist." Is anyone who, perhaps mainly through carelessness, uses a term that some, but perhaps not all, regard as "racist", therefore categorically and irreversibly a "racist"? Is the same true regarding sexism? If we all have to tread so carefully with our language for fear of being called "racist", why try so hard? Why not just call people "racist" BEFORE they accidentally say the one wrong word, since you know that someday, somewhere, someplace, they will slip up and reveal who they really are when they say that word? Let's just be done with it now and call them all racist today. Then the enormous pressure of anticipating that eventual slip is off and we can all get on with other things.
