    All racism should not be tolerated, justified, or compared. It is hate; there is no justification. Stop using the past as a constant excuse. Progress.
    Really? So you see no difference between racism against a minority than against a dominant majority?

    Can you explain why it matters if they are a miniority or not?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Please stop telling other people what they see and believe, particularly when you have no idea what you're talking about.

    The effects of racism on a minority have more influence than the effects of racism on a majority. For instance, if 10 people were in a room - 2 black, 8 white - and both groups were racist towards one another, which group would be more affected? Answer: The one with the black people.

    What do you believe, then, theplaydrive?

    Surely, when you take issue with a racial slur directed at one race, yet overlook a racial slur directed at another, it leaves room for speculation.

    Do you think all racism is equally wrong, or that some hatred is justifiable?

    This seems a little strange, theplaydrive. It almost seems as though you think numbers justify racism. All are affected, numbers be damned. Neither might nor numbers equal right.

    If I were in a room with 9 white people---we being the only living humans---would it be right for me to racially slander them because I should assume they are barely affected?

    I don't evaluate racism solely from a moral standpoint since racism is not solely a moral issue. Like you, I believe that all racism is morally wrong. At the same time, I recognize that some racism has more harmful and meaningful effects than others. In the United States, racism against whites clearly has less harmful affects since whites make up the majority of the population (and the majority of authority) and are more likely to encounter people who think of them as equals. It is the opposite for black Americans.

    There is absolutely nothing in my posts to even suggest that I believe racism is justified. Some advice: read what's there, you don't have to interpret.

    Racism is racism, no matter who it is against. Why do you try to justify racism?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
