    Notice the absence of some limiting qualifier before "skin color"
    That would be a stereotype of black people as in a "widely held but oversimplified" (basic def.) characteristic of a certain group of people . It's not the same thing as racism.

    a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race

    No, it certainly sounds like racism. Being that he is describing "race as the primary determinate" in the uncontrollable urge to consume chicken wings.

    No. It's "an idea or statement about all of the members of a group..."

    It's not even specific to a certain race because apparently rednecks like their wings and beer too.

    You thought I was full of rage based on comments I made in another thread, why would you come to that conclusion? Was it based on my race? Was it based on sex/gender, was it based on age? It's a hypothetical question, not meant to be answered but meant to be thought through. There could be a million different reasons as to why that individual felt uncomfortable or threatened so why pick out one in a million and assume it was race?
    I remember you.

    It certainly could be based on other things. It just appears to me, based on what I know now, to be based on race. Those other scenarios are possible but not very probable. If new information comes to light, I have no problem adjusting for it.

    There are not that many possibilities and this is the most likely.

    A love for all things chicken, particularly fried chicken, is a common stereotype that many racists like to believe in about black people.

    So in other words it has no credibility. I thought as much since I could not find it anywhere. Thanks

    I'm not sure it's impossible for something to be a racist stereotype. Which is what you seem to be arguing. Also, I'm not sure what point you are trying to convey with the redneck comment, but why would people holding similar ideas about redknecks preclude the racial aspect of associating an uncontrollable love for chicken and black skin color?

    Can you maybe expand on the logic behind that?

    It's not the most likely, you're talking about a very liberal city where racism isn't expected or tolerated. What's more likely is that a large group of over 20 people got agitated and that that agitation was spread to others after waiting to be seated for 2hrs, look into sociology and group dynamics specifically intergroup conflicts. You consistently oversimplify things when it comes to race, "they're black so it's most likely racism" I'm asking you to look deeper because it's not always about race and racism and due to the serious nature of the accusation it should not be used as the automatic go to explanation of the event unless you actually have evidence to prove that it's the cause.
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.
