Is The Race Card Being Used Too Loosely

In today’s world, is the race card being used too loosely. It seems as though if someone disagrees with a comment someone makes without even knowing who said it, only later to find out the comment or view was made by a black or Latino, you are now called a racist. Is our society losing their thick skin.

What happened to an honest disagreement? This Country was founded with honest, spirited debates. Just because you disagree with someone it doesn’t mean you can’t shake hands and remain friends.

Are we becoming too intense of a society. You are either with me or against me. You either agree and conform or you are an outcast. Pick a side, you or me. Tearing apart our society makes no sense. We are so polarized. We will not survive if you keep throwing around the race card.

According to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, racism is “a belief that race is a fundamental determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.”

If I understand the definition, racism is about a superiority of a particular race. It mentions nothing about a persons comments or views. Is the race card being used too loosely.
