My bad, I meant heresay.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hearsay_in_United_States_lawBest I could find to give you the definition you're looking for. I think I do know what I am talking about.
Arguing hearsay over some moron claiming "racism" is a viable tool, especially if he/she has no backing to their claims. Also, you're at a 5th rate law school. That doesn't say much to me.
I have never been accused of racism in my life, now you are bringing it up because I called you apish? Mind you, I did not know you were black before said statement. Being accused of racism when not even knowing the person behind the screen's ethnicity is uncalled for and would not even convince a jury of racism. Even so, it would be settled without one more than likely in front of a judge and you could be sued for slander, emotional distress, etc... For a law student, you don't apply real world mechanics into this discussion.
Yeah, you will have a field day arguing, "but he said i wuz a monkey when i was black, yet he did not know i was black, but he racist." That is the weakest argument I've ever seen. You will be a 5th rate lawyer working out of McDonald's after law school. Just quit and head to a technical school so you can save money. The things you are saying are idiotic.
