    What is your definition of racism?

    After you define it, give examples in your own life that you deem to be racist. If you don't like a certain culture, does that make you racist? If yes, where does race come into play other than a particular race seems to be the main members of that culture?

    Would you agree that anyone who is prejudiced based on race is racist?

    Some white people are OK too. Lol. If you see a black person, do you imagine they will behave in a stereotypical fashion or do you give them the benefit of the doubt?

    Nope. In case you hadn't noticed, in America, race is tearing us apart. I also noticed that our media here gives us a false idea of what racism is.

    Well, blind prejudicial racism might be doing that to an extent but then considering we both know how idiotic and brain dead it is to entertain such idiocy I'm kinda failing to see what the point of this thread is? If someone is prejudiced against another based simply on skin pigmentation or culture etc then they're a moron right?

    There is a difference between 'racist' and 'prejudice'. Prejudice has basically become synonymous to racism due to the constant spamming of the word every time a liberal spews their self righteous, overblown nonsense.

    The typical- racist, bigot, sexist, bigot xenophobe, bigot, homophobe..
    did I mention bigot

    Anyway, racism is believing there are classes of race, usually inferring their own race as the best or, at least, certain others are worse.
    However, 'prejudice' is having a tendency to not like another of another race, usually due to a certain culture within said race that they exhibit.

    "Racism" is a term that refers to bigotry that's based on race. Racism is technically 'racial bigotry'.

    Bigotry is the habit of diminishing the esteem of others for the purpose of increasing one's own, in relation. So racial bigotry, or "racism" is the habit of diminishing one's esteem for a specific race of people so as to increased the racist's esteem in his own, and his immediate peer's, eyes.

    This is a key point. Michael Eric Dyson makes the same point.

    According to the political machine google, minorities cannot be racist. Because according to the left, racism isn't about race.

    I didn't even watch the video, because I've heard the notion time and time again- I originally heard it from a New Black Panther member.

    Black people can be racist, and there are in fact racist blacks. One shouldn't even have to be shown the inconsistency in the claim that they cannot, and I'm going to explain why.

    They perpetuate the idea that blacks cannot be racist because they aren't exhibiting a superior status among other races, but let's look at the Nazis- the Jews were superior in Germany.

    What made the Nazis racist is their belief that they were nonetheless superior, and they had all the propaganda and will to show it. This is something that it is being exhibited by certain blacks if one only talks a closer look. Black Zionists are on city streets calling white people Edomites who are going through their downfall- that they are losing their providence in their countries. You have black people perpetuating many things about white people which are, by definition, racist.

    The idea that they 'can't be racist' is not only nonsense, it is dangerous, because they are making you believe whatever they can get you to believe so that whites continue to lose their place.
    That's not the most PC reality, but it is after all reality.

    Just as violence begets more violence, racism begets more racism.

    Yes, there are black racists. Many of them. But they are racist as a result of their abuse at the hands of white racists. It's a self-perpetuating and escalating cycle. And the only way to stop the cycle is to stop practicing racism regardless of our color or our perceived justifications.
