Reader comment on item: A Prof [Hamid Dabashi] Tangles the Truth

Submitted by Peter J. Herz (Taiwan), Apr 3, 2005 at 03:52

To those who are upset that the PC crowd call the rest of us "racist", I have two suggestions:

(1) Remind them that in the bad old days of the Cold War, when you pressed them about the dismal performance of Marxist-Leninist economies, they blamed the poor, stupid Slavic Uentermensch of Russia and primitive Asiatics of China.

(2) Admit freely that you're a "racist"--then give the four colors of America's official five-colors code that don't apply to you. (i.e.; "Sure, I'm a racist. It's just that I'm not against the whites, blacks, Hispanics...")
