So once you’ve said something racist, in your mind they are racist for ever ?

There was an interesting opinion piece in the Globe yesterday about why we tend to label people based on a single act committed sometimes decades ago.  Apparently we do it to mentally separate 'us' as normal people from "them' as deviants.  By labeling, we never have to strive to understand them as people, or try to make sense of the reasons they may have 'trangressed' in the first place.
