    You have the priviledge not using my lens, and denying my definition. That's the potato.
    Any person can look at the world thru any lens they want. You have that priveledge as well. You are responsible for the way that you view the world. Not society or anyone else. You.

    I just wanted to give props to OB for the reverse trolling in this thread in honor of Sloanfeld.

    I'm guessing it's your ironical attempt to poke fun at the reverse racism title.

    Since when can actions be divorced from thoughts and opinions? You took what was meant to be inclusive, and made it dichotomous. I agree that there is little more to be discussed, which I attribute to your insistance on that dichotomy.
    "A not B" is the basic logical structure of a dichotomy, which is the structure used in your sentence.

    "And" is the conjunction used to express non-contrasting ideas

    Race does not exist biologically in humans. Percent of melanin content is way too arbitrary, and fairly unimportant anyway, in the genetic makeup of humans to be used as a defining categorization.

    The conclusion that skin color is significant in culture means the culture teaches racism is off target. Way too general a statement. I can make any statement based on that structure.

    In [random culture], this [categorical characteristic] is significant. Thus [pejorative stereotyping] is taught.

    Ridiculous.

    Race is a social construct. Not a biological one. Doesn't mean it's 100% pejorative.
    I agree with the first paragraph, and thank you for expanding on what you meant. Skin collr is a biological phenotype, but not the sort that can be used to a sensible classification/categorizaiton.

    I agree the mere existence of consideration that a characteristic is significant does not, in adn of itself, mean discriminaiton occurs. I would not, and do not, claim that this is sufficient evidence for racism to be a part of US culture. It is necessary, but not sufficient.

    Unfortunatlely, sometimes reality slaps you in the face when you are indiscreet in using that priviledge. When I say "you have the priviledge", that means you are much less likely to be slapped in the exercise thereof.

    I am sure if you wanted to you would be able to think of numerous thoughts that you have had that you never acted on.
    I'm sure that, if you wanted to, you'd see how your question is a non sequitur in response to my question. particularly in light of the sentence preceding my question.
