When a dictionary or any other text is discussed or dissed, it should, of course, be read first--as Greg Downing says. But it is a bit-one-sided to declare there is "a whole array [cloth?] of modern-day folklore [that accepts there is racism without checking the] actual fabric of the situation." It seems to me there is a much greater array of folk today who believe and teach that racism is a thing of the past.
