@Lyzza

So, promoting views of a woman by giving her voice a platform is evidence of discrimination toward women--got it.

This is the first time I've ever heard of her, and I'm not singling her out, I'm just making a general comment that's relevant to what she's discussing: generally, unless one is colorblind to someone's character - and that includes themselves, they are racist. That's my simple, one-dimensional litmus test for determining whether someone is being racist or not. In other words, if someone is grouping anyone, whether it's themselves or someone else, into a group based on race, for the purpose of determining & pigeon holing their character, that is racism.

It's ok to describe someone by their skin color if it's for the purpose of identifying them or for health/medical reasons, just like it's ok to describe someone as tall, short, fat, thin, young, old, male, female, human, dog, cat, fish, etc. since the purpose isn't to implicate that individual's character. There may also be room for exceptions for works of parody, or things that are said/shown/done by comedians, since the idea is that either they're making light of the issue (to point out why it's flawed or what's wrong with it), or are not supposed to be taken seriously, etc.

Being racist is something that the Left does, regardless of what direction the racism goes in; what I mean by the direction are these examples:

Example 1: person A designates themselves to be a member of race X, hates person B if person A designates person B as a member of race Y, and wants to segregate or isolate people they designate as members of race X from people they designate as members of race Y, Z, etc.

Example 2: person A designates themselves to be a member of race X, considers person A to be evolutionarily superior to person B if person A designates person B as a member of any race other than X, and wants to segregate or isolate people they designate as members of race X from people they designate as not members of race X.

Example 3: person A designates themselves to be a member of race X, considers person A to be evolutionarily superior to person B if person A designates person B as a member of any race other than X, and wants to dominate people they designate as not members of race X and treat them as individuals who are inferior and helpless without race X.

Examples 1 and 2 are more overt variations of racism, and example 3 is the more covert, subtle, and conniving type, or entailing of some subterfuge.

Example 1 is typically the classical or old fashioned fuddy duddy conservative Democrat type, example 2 is typically some of the so-called "Alt Right" or "far Right" types (not the same as your typical libertarian or abolitionist Republican, free market types), and example 3 is typically the Progressive & Liberal contemporary or mainstream Democrat types.

They're all part of the Left on the Socialism (on the left) - Anarchism (on the right) scale.

I'm not sure how one can speak neutrally about a race, as she is saying she wants to do, but if she or anyone else really wants to not be racist and distance themselves from the Left, they should stay away from being like any of those examples, or any variation of them, and simply refrain from talking about any individuals as being members of any race - especially for the purpose of being meant to serve as a trait that determines an individual's character.

I won't say there aren't exceptions; in general there often are, but in this case it likely involves walking a very long, thin, and very high tight rope.

It's a little something called "ACCURACY". Maybe you've heard of it, but then, maybe not.

AND of course, NAMES are not particularly important to you because heck--you've had SO MANY NAMES.
