" For the most part, only benighted cowards make false racist accusations ..."

Diddo, but it's worse than that. 

I have gotten into arguments with PartyPerks about this very thing; i.e., slinging around the racist tag too lightly. "Racist" is a powerful word, and should be, but its power gets diluted by misuse and overuse. 

That's one reason I try not to accuse people of racism too lightly. There are people clearly prejudiced favorably and negatively based on racial stereotyping, who I wouldn't call racist (at least according to the definition I use).

I have charged another Louisiana forummer with being racist, based on his rather overt display of it. But I've tried to resist expressing it even  toward other forummers who often take stands on issues that parrot those of white supremacists, and who even say decidedly racist-sounding things (e.g., expressions of discomfort that Black voters are allowed to influence election outcomes). 

Walking, swimming and quacking like a duck might raise suspicions that it just might be a duck. But if the duck label is important, it's better not to apply it unless you're fairly sure of it. And because I believe racism is in a person's heart, it's hard to know that for sure unless they make it clear.

"JW why the other mother wasn't also arrested. "

I believe she has been charged, if the radio news is correct.

I'm with Dr. VA on this. For the most part, only benighted cowards make false racist accusations and resort to puerile name calling. Back your shit up or apologize.

I'm sure you just let it go when people say things like that about you.

Whatever - it's actually easier to let it go now that you've demonstrated that you have no intention or ability to back it up. It was just a witless barb thrown out. It must be nice to always feel like you can win every argument by calling someone a racist. Keep using that. See how much respect it earns you.

Back up your charge of calling me a racist and that's when I'll let you go.

Until then you're nothing but a coward.
