Is this racism? OPINIONS PLEASE!
My friends and I had an argument today about something that may or may not be racism.
For example, if you were at a house party and you were trying to describe to your friend a guy or girl who had been chatting you up, and this person was the only guy or girl in the entire place who was black, is is bad to describe them as "the black guy/girl" or is it more polite to describe their clothing, height, etc etc? I personally think it would be inadvertently racist to purposely ignore the most obvious fact? Opinions please :)
