I think people have taken mere words to far. In the old days, indians called white people "pale face" and white called them "redskin". I don't think anyone back then thought of racism. Words define things, including people. It's when those words are used with malice that they become racist. Most people of today, don't look into the intent of the word. Unfortunately, it seems like they just pick a reason to fight. I'm a lover, not a fighter. You would have a hard time offending me, unless you pick a lot of fights!
