We were not that enlightened in the mid to late 70's about that kind of behavior. So don't ever get too comfortable about what constitutes sexism or racism.
How about this. They weren't so uptight in the 1970s that every single out of place word was considered racist, sexist, or insulting. They also didn't have 24hour/day news media goading them on about everything.

Leave the 1970s alone. People got along far better then, than they do now.

I went to a white people party rally (early 60s), I was the only one there without a gun. There were machine guns, cannons, you name it-it was there. I shook hands with JB Stoner (look him up on google), now he was a real white supremacist. I remember when Lester Mattox was the Governor of Georgia. We had white and black schools until late 1969. I had a full beer bottle thrown at my head during the '68 riots.
The words racist and white supremacist that are used so often today are meaningless. The words white privilege and racist are so misused it's laughable.
The things you describe are the epitome of racism. Most people would be disgusted.

Today the word has been stretched so far from its meaning that it now has no meaning.

Whites who arenít willing to bend over and take it are now considered racists.

If you shook hands with J.B. Stoner and were cool with hanging around with racists back then, then you’re probably a racist, or at least you were back then.

It's not rocket science.

Good point. You probably have much lower standards when it comes to other liberals and you may not have an issue with old white Biden saying how unique Obama is in being smart clean AND black.

Yup, not rocket scientist at all. You like calling people racist. Very clear.

  • Anyone who runs against a Democrat in a general election.
  • Any Black person who votes for a Republican
  • Anyone who calls them out for anything.
  • All White evangelicals.
Using points similar to the above, I wonder what Right-leaning and Republicans would consider racist, other than perhaps someone who is a not a straight White male.

You mean the seventies were we moved into an all white neighborhood in Kansas because the city destroyed a historic black community with a highway, and my mother forced us to walk to the store were white kids would sick their dogs on me, and when I got to the store a security guard would sneak up behind me and frisk me and say "just checking you boy," and when I got tuberculosis the white school secretary wrote venereal disease on my excuse slip from the health department, ( what else could it be I was black), Or the race riot on the Naval Aircraft carrier ......good times indeed.
