okay but prove he's a racist though.

Would posting an example of him using racial stereotypes "prove" he is racist?

nope

So in essence you agree this is bullshit?

racial stereotypes are the definition of racism

I'm not arguing for or against anyone. I'm just wondering how seriously to take your posts.

There were some posts where I thought the same, but he did argue for this on more than one occasion. Admittedly I may have misread some sarcasm somewhere.

Racist people stereotype, but not everyone who stereotypes is racist.
