I’ll clarify:

  1. Yes. For example, to say someone is articulate might be because you just think they are articulate. It has nothing to do with their race.
  2. There is a way we are polite with people we are not close too. Family and close friends do not get this form of politeness. If my wife has bad breath I tell her. I won’t say this to my boss. If you are being polite in this way, maybe you are not that close to someone.
  3. Not you. People in general. Watch politically incorrect stand-up comics, to see what I mean. They can take a topic people at each other’s throats about and have both sides laughing about it. Very effective at changing behavior.
