    Homerun AH.

    Then perhaps you should be careful with the terms you choose to use. If you want to use a phrase that has baggage attached, go ahead - but you don't get to complain when it gets pointed out.

    Not to fight with you about this, but you might want to consider whether you have too much of a hair trigger heuristic for detecting racism on this one. I understand what you mean about the phrase "identity politics", and the association you are referencing is definitely real.

    But I didn't even use that phrase. I just wrote sentences that discussed identity and politics. Unless you are going to insist that the preponderance of historians, political scientists and sociologists working today are engaged in the equivalent of some crass uncle's thanksgiving day rant, you might want to refine your overly broad heuristic.

    Well now, that's just overly dismissive and sexist.
