Racism

I was having a discussion recently about racism. My take on it is this: I don't care what colour you are. I don't care what religion you practise. I don't care if you are black, white, green, orange, yellow, purple, or just spend too much time on a sun bed. I just don't care. It is an irrelevance. The only thing I care about is are you human, and do you act like a human.

I've been told this is racist. WTF?

Admittedly, I have been told this by a self-confessed member of the "liberal elite" (I hate that phrase; they are neither liberal nor elite, and think if they claim to be both enough, people will start to believe them), so I don't actually set much store by it.

I feel that it may be politically incorrect not to regard one's skin colour as important, and if you are not politically correct, you must be racist.

I still don't understand.

Perhaps picking various self-confessed members of the liberal elite and beating them to death with a grande extra tall non-dairy non-fat mochachino would help my understanding.
