    Again you are too brainwashed to realize what happened. Hatred for oppression is deserved and the left is far too oppressive.
    You're spewing what you've been told to think. Typical #TrumpCult.

    I disagree. People use those terms to justify, rationalize and/or disguise racist, sexist and homophobic opinions. Calling it "honest," "informed" or "intelligent" does not render it non-sexist, non-racist or non-homophobic.

    Isn't an inordinate concern for what constitutes as racist or not, racism in itself?

    What I gather from the opinions in this thread is that a mere opinion that is deemed racist is sanctionable -- whether socially or worse, legally. My understanding is that an opinion can be based on nothing more than a feeling -- hence it is just an opinion. After all, one cannot control how one feels about something. And because one cannot control how one feels about something, he or she cannot be held liable for feeling nor voicing that feeling (of course within the boundaries of free speech). It is therefore my understanding that feelings are neither right nor wrong.

    Only actions and their accompanying intent are subject to moral judgement.

    I don't know how you gathered that. Nobody in this thread has proposed having right-wingers arrested simply for holding racist viewpoints.

    Me while discussing with a friend (who is black) the challenges of raising a family in today's technologically advanced world: "we were born 50 years too late"

    Him: "nah, I'm good where I'm at"

    Why would anyone need to 'justify, rationalize and/or disguise' an opinion if it were not socially sanctionable, hmmmm?

    "Socially sanctionable"? WTH is that supposed to mean?

    If a person doesn't care what others think about their opinions, then they need not 'justify, rationalize and/or disguise' them.

    It is certainly not illegal to be a racist in the US.

    Or, simply type into Google, "chemtrails" and read the plethora of stories on that subject.

    If it's on the Internet, then it must be true.
