    Although the explanation was simplistic, ime it applies to most accusations made based merely on words spoken at a given time to a given person, so I think it's a pretty decent baseline for people to hold.

    Specially people who are too biased to make the call (though those are the ones least likely to give it due consideration).

    I'm not in the mood to discuss sexism/racism, but feel free to have the last word if so desired.

    From The New York Times: Chicago Sees Pension Crisis Drawing Near

    For those of you who haven't been paying attention, unsustainable pension liabilities are what made Detroit file for bankruptcy.
    Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.

    By the same measure, you failed to grasp the point it was making.

    That's simply wrong.

    You presumed that because it did not put an emphasis on worrying about racism and sexism that it fails to grasp the point of worrying about racism and sexism, and perhaps even what the concepts mean; absence of evidence isn't evidence of absence; just because it didn't make mention of the point of worrying about racism and sexism, doesn't mean it fails to grasp the point of worrying about racism and sexism; it had a point it was making, and a legitimate one, and that is what it chose to focus on; often times one does that simply for efficacy's sake; I will admit I was likewise a bit struck by the same quality you have pointed to, but have not made the error of assuming that absence of evidence is necessarily evidence of absence. Considering, in your post, there is an absence of evidence that you grasp the point the piece was making, by the same measure you have used to judge it -- that an absence of evidence is evidence of absence -- you could be said to fail to understand it. Not that I necessarily believe that's the case, at least not in full, but if that's the measure by which you're going to judge it, then you should be wary of how that same measure can be applied when it comes to judging you.
