    Well that is what racism is - the grouping of people by skin color. What I am more interested in is whether black people can be racist towards white people. There is a fair portion of society that thinks not.

    But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

    What are my fruits today?

    "Moral standards" are a lot like lighthouses: they exist to help us stay on course as we sail through life. But we have to steer BY them, but not directly AT them. Lest we end up marooned on the shoals of perpetual self-righteousness.

    Of course black people can be racist towards white people. Have you not ever heard the word "crackers" being used to describe white people by some blacks?

    That is not a word of endearment.

    They were just upset that you called them the "r" word.
