Can somebody make a racist comment, but not actually be a racist?


There have been accusations of racism recently, in football (soccer), with one player having made comments to another regarding their race. Whilst these comments might have been made in the heat of the moment, undoubtedly designed to offend, does it follow that this person must be a racist? The act should not be left unpunished or defended, but should the character of the man be written off and he condemened forever? Sort of two questions in one, but both getting at the same thing. I would be interested in views!
