"I didn't mean for it to be taken as racist." a.k.a., "The road to racism is detoured by good intentions." The intent was never the problem to begin with; racism is as problematic as it is because it offends people, not because you wanted to. (okay, so this is debatable.)
"Minorities, when speaking about racism, are above reproach." If anything, minorities are frequently just as racist or more racist than others, just because nobody thinks to call them out on it. (Asians, for example, can be incredible nationalistic snobs. Just try asking a first- or second-generation immigrant parent about all the amazing things that were done first in their country.) This is still a bad thing!
"Traditions and culture are especially important to minorities." In my (unnecessarily inflammatory) opinion, traditions are mainly important to people who don't have much else. I am more than what I've been handed down by thousands of years of handing-down, or at least, I aspire to be.
"Meat is delicious, you should try it sometime. :o" Nah, see, I might be convinced by this reasoning, except that it kind of misses the entire point. >_> I will not be swayed by your delicious bacon!
