    Again, nothing in my post AT ALL suggests that I'm justifying racism. Stop reading into things - unless I say the word "justify", I'm not talking about justification.

    Alright, my apologies then. I am getting sick of people pretending that racism against the majority is any different than racism against the minority. Racism against one person is just as much racism as racism against 99.999999% of the population. Racism is racism, period.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    No its not. Its hating just to hate. Its somewhat based on generalizations. The repetitave actions of one group. Blacks are criminals. Asians drive like crap and run restaurants or dry cleaning establishments. Italians are great cooks, over emotional douche bags. Polish people do stupid things. Russians are alcoholics. etc, etc.....
    And there is a lot of truth in those things.
    But hating just to hate is racism. Killing jews...... racist.

    Actually, I don't think you can demonstrate the truth of those things, there is nothing you can link blacks genetically to being criminals. It just can't be done. While there are a lot of blacks in prison, that's not because they're black, it's because they're poor.

    As soon as someone starts making statements about a group based solely on their skin color, they're engaging in racist behavior.

    In my opinion, racism against the majority is the same as racism against the majority morally and "intellectually". In other words, both are equally hateful and equally ignorant. However, racism against the minority has more harmful and measurable effects since minorities are more likely to run into people and organizations who are racist against them than majorities are. In other words, they are not equally influential. Put another way, I'd rather have the minority be racist against me than the majority.

    And I'd rather have nobody racist against anybody, nor am I going to give a pass to anyone for acting racist against anyone. Wrong is wrong, period.

    Right, wrong is wrong. But racism is not just a moral issue. Some racism has more influence than others and in the arena of influence, not all racism is equal.

    What if its possitive statements? Russian women are beautiful. Its not racist. Its the truth. There are characteristis of all ethnicities. Its in their culture. Its not 100%. Not everyone in a group is going to have that possitive OR negative trait. But to DENY the existance of a general trait is lying to yourself. ANd to call THAT racist is incredibly stupid. When someone HATES and becomes violent or even causes negative things to happen to others... THAT is racist.

    Soo... what does that mean to the white kid in a majority black neighborhood?
    "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.

    Sucks for him unless he leaves and goes to pretty much anywhere else in the United States, but the fact that you provided this example shows that you understand my point perfectly especially since I'm sure you know that the white kid in a majority black neighborhood is much rarer than the entire minority black population in majority white country.
