That is the question..
There is no answer. You asked me how someone can defend himself against the charge of racism. I explained that there is no defense since the charge is based on unverifiable conjectures about thoughts, beliefs and attitudes.

Exactly. And when you are the sole defender against people who dislike you for many other reasons, what are the chances that they will accept your assertion of, "No, you are wrong"?.
Life is tough, isn't it?
