Re: I always preferred Rising Damp

Very good post for 99%, but it feels like you kinda betray the equanimity of your conclusion by the reference to "'ignorant' racism". Racism is, in my book (don't own a dictionary, among my sins), an inclination to, with malice aforethought, *act* in a manner prejudicial to those of another racial grouping.

I can't grok therefore how it could possibly be "ignorant": the concept described is absolute, not defined by the opinions or feelings of the grouping who are its object.
