Note to self - if any discussion of racism or sexism comes up, on any list
I moderate, *bzzt* it instantly.

Problem solved! It *is* that simple!

Lists are *allowed to stay on-topic*. If something is controversial, even
if there is a moral obligation that someone somewhere think about it
today, there are other lists. Not every issue needs to be discussed in
every place. Racism is not a nonissue, I salute the people who fight it,
and I am proud to this day of the few very minor blows I've struck in the
battle on racism. But it is not an issue that the lists I moderate need
to handle.
