that you don't realise that the following shows that you are just going about your day not bothering to try to learn as many people are pointing out your messed up behaviour:

  • the straights thing and the racism thing are different cases the same problem
    you also don't get to decide when something is 'long gone', as the person who did it

  • this is not just a matter of definitions for the race thing

  • because of the first point, if you really understood what was wrong about the straights thing (as you say), you wouldn't have said that this is just a matter of definitions for the race thing
    so it casts doubt on your having understood what you did wrong with the straights thing

That's not at all true. I've been reading up on the topic, I've been discussing again and again with other people here, I have listened to what they have to say and learned from it. Apparently, what was true yesterday is not true today, though.

this is not just a matter of definitions for the race thing

We talked about this in the thread yesterday, and that seemed to be the conclusion we reached. My definition of racism was the one written in the dictionary, and I hadn't realized that so many people here have a vastly different understanding of that word. I'm more than willing to learn where and why I am wrong, though, if you want to explain it.
