    Are you promoting racism?
    So then apartheid was racist in south africa! according to your definition.

    You also do not have a clue what racism means.

    Racism on an individual level is socially meaningless. To define a social construct by an individual is to exclude context. That context is excluded in order to falsly equivocate the pissing in the wind of a minority racial bigot with the socially significant malevolence of a racial bigot with institutional power.


    Racism is a social issue, not a personal issue. An individual cannot constitute or institute racism. Racism, and the system of privilege instituted, can only be achieved by a majority power.

    Saying things that are outlandishly offensive, hateful, or ignorant in order to provoke a response is the definition of being a troll.

    Apparently context is meaningless to you.

    The NBA, under David Stern, has long handled Donald Sterling with kid gloves. Perhaps now that Stern is no longer the commissioner, things might change.

    If a player had gotten caught saying the stuff Sterling has, he'd have been run out of the league on a rail years ago.

    When speaking of racism, a minority in question is not a matter of numbers but institutional power.

    That is extremely specious reasoning.

    In order to keep themselves in power, Democrats pander the power of the entire federal government to minority interests. If elections were determined by the validity of ideas and principles, the Democrats would have been laughed down the road years ago. And America would still have a common language, a protected border and a common culture. And good schools, and a functioning safety net system, and jobs for American families, etc., etc.

    The key to Democrats winning elections is to keep their designated victim groups filled with rage and racial hatred full time.

    We're going to see a lot more of it as the midterms approach because the Democrats fear the base isn't sufficiently fired up to turn out.

    The key to Republicans winning elections is scaring white people into believing that poors and minorities are trying to take all their stuff.

    Pretty much, the type of racism that underlies so much of their schtick is pretty awful, every once in a while something happens and we see what is hiding under the rug.
