    It isn't.

    because the word has been so overused that it's losing its' impact and the people who use it as an excuse whenever something happens that they don't like are looked at with skepticism. ..but I'm sure that's a "racist" opinion....


    racism (noun)
    An undetectable (yet very real) “systemic, societal, institutional, omnipresent, and epistemologically embedded phenomenon that pervades every vestige of our reality” forcing brown or black-skinned people to fail out of school, smoke crack, not get a job, abandon their kids, contract AIDS, commit every crime at a staggering rate, and underperform on culturally unbiased tests of highly heritable cognitive abilities,

    In minorities, the leading cause of depression, death, animal and child abuse, tears, impotence, low self-esteem, persistent whining, bad weather, the common cold, unemployment, inability to assimilate, high taxes, crime, poverty, welfare, congestive heart failure, global warming, global cooling,....etc...essentially the cause of any condition or event that a minority doesn't like or approve of. Literally the worst thing in the entire world.

    racist (adjective)

    1. Expressing, suggesting, or hinting at discomforting truths about race.

    2. Failing to sufficiently denigrate and discriminate against whites.

    3. Directed at a white person by a non-white person: causing the speaker, or some (actual or hypothetical) like-race individual, to feel (or suspect that he may feel) unwanted, uncared for, unlikeable, uneasy, uncomfortable, upset, angry, guilty, hurt, cross, inferior, or stupid in some way, usually by the offending party being racist (def. 1), being racist (def. 2), or saying something like "crime rates are disproportionately high among minorities" Derogatory. Punishable by death in most jurisdictions. Often rendered "raciss", as in "you raciss" and "das raciss".

    EDIT;
    I got this in a forwarded email and the original source is unknown or I would gladly attribute it.

    Good point. I'm not jumping to any conclusions. Maybe there was a good reason that we don't know about. On the other hand, maybe it was racism.

    Few things annoy me more than someone who feel they have to show the world how they are beyond anything that might be construed as racism. It must be a horrible life when you feel you must prove yourself to complete strangers.

    Making up definintions again, I see.

    Would you say it's possible, or are you just going to dismiss it without knowing the facts?

The fact that they spent more time with those of their own color did not make me think they were racist, just like none of them ever accused me of racism. Now someone like you comes along and after reading a few words I posted makes this claim. Just why should I care at all what someone like you thinks of me?
    Everyone on here is a racist. LOL
    I worked in management at Waste Management for over a deacade. 75% black workforce.
    We all got along just fine. But the baiters dont want to hear that. Their comment is that we must have just "tolerated" each other long enough to get a pay check.
    In reality thought, the biggest fighters in the group? The Mexicans vs the Cubans. Man they would actually go at in the parking lot.

    You are trying to blow it up and make ridicule of the situation. I don't find it funny and I don't appreciate you trying to deflate the situation by blowing it out of proportions. Not the situation as much as... the desired outcome.

    Nobody I think, is advocating for anything more than that. White people have no guilt in this matter.
    Did you listen to the interview with the spokesman for the group?

    He said the manager told him there was an issue with another patrón but they were not asked to leave until the filming started.

    How can that be construed as racist?

    No..It's called "humor" and "purposely exaggerating for effect"

    I don't know or care if the story is true or not.

    What do you mean "making up definitions AGAIN"....? care to substantiate that claim?

    I'm not sure if you've ever been there but Charleston is a very liberal city. I'm surprised by the claims made at the restaurant and if they are accurate it's not something that's going to be tolerated there.

    The Chief marketing officer for the wild wing cafe chain is investigating the incident. She said:

    "It's not an us vs. them — we really join them in their concern," said the chief marketing officer, Debra Stokes. "We have a zero tolerance of any kind. We have a diverse collection of individuals within our organization. We have always prided ourselves on inviting everyone into our restaurants."
