As for the second paragraph, I think you've been overly picky with his post. He can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that he's trying to ask why skin colour is any more of an issue than people hurling other insults at each other, whether it be about their weight, hair colour or appearance.

It just seems that some people are (in my opinion) overly precious about racism, and turn a blind eye to issues such as ***ism, homophobia or whatever.

Is being racist any worse than hating fat people because they're fat?

Or hating gingers because they are ginger? Jews because they're Jewish?

I don't really have a particular view on this, nor do I know anyone that does, but it's a point worth making in my opinion.
racism or racist are 2 of the most overused words in the english language, usually by knobjocky khan bum boys on here

good post by the way
