I'd guess that the guys playing basketball were harmlessly having fun, and I get the oft-discussed (on this podcast) concept of the asymmetry of racism, but sometimes I feel like there's literally nothing that a caller could ever present that Andrew and his guest would deem racist against white people.
The assymetrical nature of racism means that it's literally impossible to be racist against white people. There literally isn't a thing that could happen, at least in America, that is honest-to-goodness racist against white people. You can be racially prejudiced against white people. It might be a little shitty, but it's seriously not a problem to call a white guy Jimmer every once in a while.
Dogs how can you still not get that you just straight up cannot be racist against white people. The reason us white people have the stereotype of being the establishment is that we are the establishment. You can't get around that.
