"Post-Racial" is Still Racial

Another of my word usage pet peeves...

If you have to use "racial" as part of a definition of something, it is still racial.  I'm not fooled by the addendum of "post" to attempt to indicate that it is somehow past, over, behind the concept.

To be "post-racial" would be to not bring it up at all.

And I still hate "reverse racism."
