    Racists?

    Question was found on Facebook and I figured it's a good one:

    Are the people who always use the race card also racists?

    Simple, short, sweet.

    To me people like Al Sharpton and the NAACP, who use the race card for many things, are racists.

    This includes all racists. The question is if those who use the race card are also racists.

    Racism is the belief that there are inherent differences in people's traits and capacities that are entirely due to their race, however defined, and that, as a consequence, racial discrimination (i.e. different treatment of those people, both socially and legally) is justified.
    From Racism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Race baiting is different from racism.

    Maybe? Just because you use the race card doesn't make you racist yourself.

    Race baiting isn't racism?

    So it wouldn't be racist of me to call every little slight against black people racist... racism?

    Interesting.

    If you follow the english language and what words mean, then no, race baiting is not the same thing as racism. This is something you could have figured out for yourself with 2 minutes of research. Wiki is not hard to find, nor is dictionary.com.

    It takes more than playing the race card to be racist and one does not need to play the race card in order to be racist.

    What I don't get is why so many people will complain about people like Sharpton playing the race card while playing the race card themselves. "I can't do X because I am white, white people don't get Y" and so on and so forth.

    I find it truly amazing that people can engage in the very behaviors they claim to despise as much as those they claim to despise for doing so.

    Look at the question itself? Whoever came up with it was playing the race card when they decided to say "real racists" instead of using a more realistic term.
