"Accused of Racism"

Looking at my earlier entry about Muslims being accused of racism for attacking Jews and the report accusing them of so not being published in case it was accused of racism....

I did a quick Google Search: "accused of racism" UK

4,630 entries for this specific search - top ten:
New Labour
US networks
Colleges
UK Health Service
House of Lords Staff
Asian Doctor
Asian Doctor (again)
Millennium Commission
SOAS
Tories

Gosh, there does seem to be a lot of it about!

Racism goes against one of my core beliefs.
'A gentleman is never unintentionally rude' and I hold no brief for it, but am I being a tad cynical in believing this "accusing of racism" is just an indiscriminate stick that is being waved about?

One problem is that what is viewed as racism is an evolving concept. Because of this people are often overtaken in the way they communicate. The shift in language from coloured being the most acceptable term to black or asian for instance. Somebody left behind using the wrong language is not racist they've just fallen behind with the terms.

Love this quote - how about more of your maxims - say a list of your Top 10?

Saw your site listed on Glorious Alliance after looking at Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler.

Great stuff.

All the best from a Celt in the US!
