Half of what he used as justification for his claims were not terms or scenes instigated by Rhodes and he obviously has a very rough memory of the film and that probably influenced his opinion. You don't just throw out those kinds of terms for what Rhodey actually did in the movie and they don't sound racist because they just do not apply. This is not objective, it is subjective.

I'm sorry, but Sam is wrong and he needs to own up to it and just learn a lesson. He can't make statements like those and expect them to just be ignored or brushed under the rug.

Not only that, but he continues to accuse me of calling him racist and threatens sicking a mod on me when it is obvious he is simply not understanding what he said and not understanding what others are trying to tell him.
I didn't see anything racist in what he was saying. He was more discussing stereotypes/mannerisms than actually using racial terms to put one race above another. I'd say, if anything, you're being a tad bit too sensitive to his opinion.
