Racism…

…Not Automatically

If a complaint is made against someone and that someone happens to be of a different skin colour (or race) does that make the complainant racist?

I think not, though too often these days any complaint against, or even disagreement with, a person of different racial background is looked on as “racist”. The “race card” is even seen as a weapon to be used by some in order to gain advantages. It’s about time those in power found a sense of realism, and acknowledged that just because someone has a different skin colour they can still be wrong/not entitled/unfit etc.

Difference does not bestow privilege.
