Do you think that word is thrown around way to much? People scream racism over any little thing.
"You didn't vote for a colored (by that I mean black, Asian, Hispanic) President/senator/mayor/etc. You are racist!"
"You ask a general question about another minority! You are racist!"
"You won't date outside your race? You are racist"
I was recently called the the last one because I wouldn't go out with a black fellow I met at the bar with some friends. He asked me out and I said, no. I just wasn't simply attracted to him. I have never been attracted to blacks. Now if a man does come around and his black and I find him attracted yeah I'll go out with him.
I am really tired of seeing this word thrown around so much. Do some people seriously don't know what it means?
I am posting anonymous because we all know I will get bashed for this question by a few people, it's not because I'm a "coward".

The word is way overused and the word has lost much of it's meaning because of the way it's used. JMO
