Why, you would have to be tone-deaf to language usage to say this with a straight face.

I just did, though I don't expect you to see it. Perhaps, you'll see this:

And if you were scared, maybe you should ask yourself if you are racist.
The fact that a cliché is almost universally understood to imply racism does not mean that it is right to infer that someone who uses it is racist. And I never said it was right , or in your words, that it is OK, to make the inference. I said it is impossible to infer anything, one way or another. So go stuff it, pitiful nitwit.
