I'm still waiting on someone to say what the racists statements, tones, and
attitudes have been said here. I haven't heard anyone make any racists
statements. I haven't heard anyone say that any particular race was
inherently superior. I've heard bigoted ones, and I've heard discriminatory
ones. I know this may seem like nitpicking definitions, but its important
that words keep their meanings else more confusion erupts. If your going to
use the word racist, please have the common courtesy to know what it means,
and how it differs from bigoted and discriminatory.

P.S. Another pet peeve of mine is there is no such word as "Disrepecting"!
Webster would be rolling over in his grave :)
