If you are a ‘African-American’ and use that phrase referring to the black race, you are a racist according to Merriam-Webster.com and my understanding of the English language:
\ˌa-fri-kə-nə-ˈmer-ə-kən, -ˈme-rə- also ˌä-\
Definition of AFRICAN-AMERICAN

spe·cial·ly adv \ˈspe-sh(ə-)lē\
Definition of SPECIALLY

Oops. My bad you can’t be a racist because excluding Wikipedia as a source and I always do, racist is NOT a word in the English language.
I guess that would make you a race-baiter, right? You call your race a phrase that refers to all races but specially blacks and then you call the other racial groups that are also ‘African-American’ and especially caucasians a word contrived just for them: Racist. Yep I’d say blacks that refer to their race as African-American are by definition race-baiters. Ya, ya I know I’m a racist, but it’s not in the English language so it must be code, but for what? I’ll take a stab at it: Considering the context racist is used in the most, I would have to conclude it is code for: White or caucasian.
I welcome any and all civil debate on this matter so long as you base your theory on fact and truth . . .USAnaturalBorn . . . Len.
After a discussion with my Brother David I must concede that I am wrong about the context the code ‘racist’ is used in the most. It is mostly used by liberal politicians backed into a corner for defending their ideologies after they have been factually destroyed and they are completely stripped of any logical believable argument so they have no other alternative but to concede their defeat, but because liberal politicians and those who support them lack the fortitude to admit when they are wrong they simply use the code ‘racist’ to admit their defeat to a caucasian opponent.
