Not true.

It has more to do with feeling that your race is superior.  You can hate someone without feeling superior to them.  You can hate them because you feel they have discriminated against you.


I’m agreeing with you wads. The mindset I’m referring to is specifically what you wrote. That is the definition.

To me, Racism is the act itself. It is someone acting on their Racist views. I am fine with you not interpreting it that way, but there still needs to be a single term that means 'acting in a Racist way'. What is it?


Racism is a psychological disorder that can motivate many actions.

Some of them include rape, murder, assault but they also include insults, workplace discrimination, and writing racists screeds that no one will ever read.

Any act motivated by racism is a racist act. There could never be a single term for capturing it all.

So you disagree with Gus Savage who said, "Blacks cannot be racist …"

I'm a middle-aged white dude. Why do I not feel discriminated against?


Did you ever work in an industry where "affirmative action" rules the day?  Ever apply for a government contract?  Police job in a big city?  Admission to a big university?

Yes, that is an action, but racism has to be systemic to be harmful to an entire group of people.

Is your gang example systemic? Hardly.


How about "affirmative action" - pervasive racist discrimination against whites - is that "systemic"?

Actually, you clarified it right there. 'Racist Act'.

But I do not think it's a disorder. Based on the quantity of racism that exists today and throughout history, it seems to be the default state for large quantities of humans.

That means that those who are not racist are an evolved form of our species.

Why is this so difficult to understand?

Racism without a means to be racist is meaningless.

So let's say you are hated by Indian's, and as a result, when you shop in their stores, they charge you more. Racism.

But if an Indian beats you up on the street. Hate.

Now you claim that you, one of the 247 million white people in this country, are being systematically oppressed by some other group? Stupidity.

I mean, c'mon, if you are being oppressed, the vast likelihood is that it is by other white people.



Bingo!   You win a cookie.  Most anti-white discrimination is arranged by white liberal elites who capitalize on it politically.

Yes, I have worked in academic, government and corporate sectors. And in all those environments, teams with more diverse groups of people have always performed better, always solved problems faster, always come up with more creative solutions.

Don't forget, Affirmative Action is only a nuisance if you don't already hire diverse teams. I do, because I like my teams to succeed, so it is a non-issue to me. AA is there to help those who are racist overcome their natural tendency to see themselves, and those like themselves, as better. Yet study after study shows that diverse teams are superior in all ways.

So you admit that the majority of people in this country are liberal. Well finally, some progress.

I think this topic gets way way way too much airtime. We have people from virtually every race in highly public positions. Such as newscasters, heads of companies etc.

Let’s agree that there are some racists. But it’s such a small scale relative to other issues.

Most all People today look at performance, attitude, conformity to laws and accepted social norms regarding how they judge people, and judging may have nothing to do with racism. Aren’t we judging people when we say people born before xx don’t need to remove shoes belts at airport security?

If one were to look at crimes against people, by race, per capita, one would conclude that black on black crime is a problem that is staggeringly higher than other inter race related crime. You can’t wven compare it to anything else. One can arionalize a host of reasons but the outcome is still there.

I suspect there are many more people still uncomfortable with lgbt people than people of other races.

Having traveled Europe it seems people there are far far more vitriolic towards certain people from certain countries. Ever hear someone from Croatia talk about Albanians?
