On When Somebody Calls You a Racist

I think that the journalist, provocateur, and iconoclast, Jim Goad, probably has the best advice in that he tells the object of the slur to ask the perpetrator of it to define exactly what he or she means and when they do, you can either say that you are or you aren't. He claims that it's a strategy which typically ends the conversation and I strongly suspect that he's correct.
