"You said that I probably admired a slave owner. That's what you said, that's what was incredibly stupid, and that's what I take personal offense at." - me Because you accused me of admiring a slave owner, and by definition, the slavery itself. Slavery by any person is a crime against the person being enslaved. This is similar to the act of tyranny that is practiced by some governments, including our own when they require that we buy healthcare. It would be just as tyrannical if they required that we buy an avocado every day. In addition, I do not use colors when describing people. This vile practice, which you implied that I participated in, robs people of the part of their humanity that allows them to make individual decisions about their food, music, dating habits, clothes, etc. In addition, anyone who has thrown race out of their consciousness cannot possibly treat anyone as an inferior because of a racial difference. You missed my point completely. You may think about people in racial terms, but I do not.
