    I've handed "apartheid" to every racial/ethical or religious conflict? Please. I doubt that Oliver Tambo is rolling over in his grave over me.

    Why don't you think about a specific racial, ethnic, or religious conflict that I actually have attributed with the term "apartheid". Then find an appropriate thread to have the discussion in, invite me over, and I'll be pleased to engage you in the intelligent debate you claim to seek.

    Please look at the topic of this thread. *sigh* If you had actually followed what I have been saying, I disagree with the arbitrary use of the word. You were the one who decided to debate that point hence its reasonable to A) either assume you supported the use of the word in the thread topic, or B) Are a troll just looking for a pigeon fight.
