Race doesn't matter until somebody brings it up. And the first person to bring it up is usually the racist. So while you think you're the good guy by calling somebody racist, you're actually the racist one.

When one race does something to somebody of another race that doesn't automatically make them a racist. Races can interact with each other. Races can do things to each other. Races can get upset at each other. That's two humans interacting. It's not racist, it's life.

So when you see one race do something to another race and you call them a racist you are actually the racist. There are millions of reasons why somebody might do something to another person, and for you to assume that the reason is race without any hint of evidence to support such a belief is completely, utterly, unequivocally racist.

Alberto: The whole premise of this is

The whole premise of this is just wrong. The first person to talk about racism is not necessarily the racist. One can point out something that other people might be doing wrong, and that doesn't make them wrong too. Pointing out the biases installed in society does not make you a racist, but being silent about the prejudices and discrimination taking place do make you accomplice.

DatzeMich: Wow that's completely wrong!

Wow that's completely wrong! So you're are not allowed to make a point about clear fact without being a racist?
If this would be true than your article is racist.

Give me an example of a clear racial fact.

Ray Bowen: The first person to mention race

I don't agree with the blanket premise of this article.
It makes sense to me that those pointing the finger often see in others what they themselves are guilty of (please pardon the grammar).
This was taught to us in school as psychological projection, and is consistent with what every child understands as "it takes one to know one!"
That being said, I would agree with the premise if the word "often" was added to the headline, as in:
"The first person to mention racism is *often* the racist."
One may recognize racist tendencies in one's own habits or ways of thinking, without acting on them.

And for the question below, "What color is the opposite of black"
I'll point out that "black" is not a color; black is the absence of color.
Since "White" is the presence of all colors simultaneously, I suppose it will work as an answer. :)
