    Wait a minute. I thought you were referring to affirmative action.

    Regarding criticism, OF COURSE we should criticize blacks that are bigoted. No one is asking you to ignore bigotry. I'm just asking you to understand that bigotry without power is NOT racism. Accusing people of things they cannot possible be or do is idiotic.

    Racism can only exist when a group has the power to make such policy.

    Okay, by the actual definition that I posted, you're wrong. It's called being racist. lol just because you don't like doesn't mean you can change what words mean. This is funny though.

    EDIT, to help you out:

    rac·ism
    ˈrāˌsizəm/Submit
    noun
    1.
    the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, esp. so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.

    I'm gratified to learn that Obama's white half is most certainly racist based on certain assertions here. This conflicting condition must wreak havoc within him.

    Read your own definition (do try to include the numbers beyond 1., they are there for a reason). When you understand it, let me know.

    I guess my next question is if you think something must adhere to all definitions of a word in order for that word to fit?

    Like did I use adhere correctly there? Or did I use it incorrectly because it doesn't have anything to do with sticking one object to another?

    ad·here [ad-heer] Show IPA
    verb (used without object), ad·hered, ad·her·ing.
    1.
    to stay attached; stick fast; cleave; cling (usually followed by to ): The mud adhered to his shoes.
    2.
    Physics. (of two or more dissimilar substances) to be united by a molecular force acting in the area of contact.
    3.
    to be devoted in support or allegiance; be attached as a follower or upholder (usually followed by to ): to adhere to a party.
    4.
    to hold closely or firmly (usually followed by to ): to adhere to a plan.
    5.
    Obsolete . to be consistent.

    Excellent posts, Eco. Your sound reasoning is of course going to piss a few people off, however.

    They're usually called racialists. Racism in the means by which they push their racialist beliefs into existence. Racialism doesn't require power. Racism does. At least that's how I think scholars in the field view it.

    In this thread, I learned that in order for a definition to be right, each separate definition needs to apply, otherwise the word doesn't fit.

    eco, you've made an idiot out of yourself here buddy.


    lol "black people can't be racist" wtf hahahahah

    It's good to see you making an attempt. Perhaps with a tutor you could gather a clue.
