    They are racist out of envy- white people prosper and black people hold each other down. They have suffered very little abuse of white racists, because there are very little white racists. Most white people have simply become frustrated with being called racist for BEING WHITE.

    Stop defending such absurdity- a racist is a racist, and if a white man is such a demon for being one then guess what- so is the black racist. They are dishonest in perpetuating against another race when it's their own race hurting them.

    The truth hurts, and it's become a crime to tell it- so I guess that makes me 'racist'

      Racism - when someone has an issue with or causes problems with others based (treats them differently) based on their race alone.

      An example for me would be fear in areas that are predominately black and the assumption that they will harm me, or rob me, etc..

      But my basis is experience, with it happening and seeing it happen.

        According to the Liberal Dictionary, the definition of 'racism' is as follows:
        to have any problem at all with anyone whatsoever of another race.

        Liberals will disagree with this, but brand you a racist if you exhibit such. That's the nonsense of liberals, who refuse to see it

          Racism is when you apply pre-conceptions to someone based on the association of their skin color to others of that race.

          It can be positive or negative. But when it's positive, we don't call it racism. We just say "he seems like a good guy."

            You could go to sub Saharan Africa and not see one white person, yet feel totally safe. I did. It's the stereotypical behavior and dress that you saw that gave you fear... not the skin color....I'm guessing.

If someone is prejudiced against another based simply on skin pigmentation or culture etc then they're a moron right?
              The point of this thread is to get people to talk about it because we are talking past each other on it and using it as a weapon to silence opinion we don't want to hear .

                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.
                Yes. It's usually one of the cultures within a race that is repugnant to other races and it's easy to fall into the trap of designating everyone of that race to that culture.

                  Yes. It's about wielding power to them.

                    I'm not trying to silence anybody on anything. I just think that racism is pretty self explanatory. What is it other than blind prejudice and ignorance?

                      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.
                      I agreed mostly but the racism usually is not due to anything done to them by white racists . Because of slavery, their society lags behind white society and they are indignant that their neighborhoods are a dangerous mess. Nobody wants to take responsibility for their own actions, and so it's easier to blame whitey and magnify any real or imagined slight. IMO, all the talk about slavery and the real abuse they faced in society all the way up to housing discrimination feeds their anger and makes them racist. So, you are right in a sense, but the injustice that feeds their racism happened to their parents and distant relatives of the past, not any behavior in the here and now.

                        Didn't say you were trying to silence anyone. I'm talking about societal discourse here in America.

                            In America racism is whatever the left wants it to mean at the moment, it is a versatile hyperbole that can be attached to any, speech, behavior, or worldview whether it is accurate or not. I wish that it was as cut and dry as you presume but, that is just not the case, in fact I would say the more the word "Racism" is being used wrongly the more it becomes blasé & trite, it loses it's power as it's meaning is perverted to be a one size fits all term.

                              This is exactly the kind of post I was looking for when I created the thread. It's what I was hinting at.

                                Ok, from a political perspective the term can come to be loaded, twisted and warped out of all recognition, from both the left and the right, but that's not what I thought was under discussion here.
