One can believe that black people shouldn't take something as racist, but they're bound to react badly to finger-wagging from white people.

So by all means have an opinion, but better load up on really strong arguments in order to back your case and be prepared to take heat, especially if one's leading argument is "Here's a Jew/black guy/Muslim who isn't offended, so there!".
