A List of Ridiculous Things That Have Been Called Racist
If you watch the news or follow social media, you can't escape the calls of racism everywhere. Heck, you might even live in a city that has been burned to the ground in protest by the Black Lives Matter movement. It might seem like the rioting and looting came out of nowhere, but the signs of trouble have been brewing for a couple of years now.
