No, not a sociological sense, a common sense. If you have eyes
to see the tension between blacks and whites, you have eyes to
see blacks and whites. There's no avoiding the distinction unless

projecting your fantasies about the "objective biological meaning"
of races on everyone who discusses race in the U.S.
