    if you can't see that? well, what can I say.
    Racial stereotyping is not always racism. If I said all Jews are greedy, it is an untrue blanket statement, but has nothing to do with hating Jews or me thinking I am superior because of my race.

    In your often overblown opinion only.

    I'm sorry, let me clarify: negative racial stereotyping, is certainly racism.

    positive or neutral stereotyping? the jury is out.

    happy now?

    bull****. if you say all Jews are greedy, dishonest, hateful, & unathletic, you're an anti-Semite.

    if you say all blacks are lazy, white woman-chasing, chicken eatin', poor tipping, & ignorant, you're a racist.

    Or making a point/joking.


    I could make a racist statement right now.

    But if I don't actually believe that statement, I'm not racist.

    folks who aren't racists, tend to not make racist statements.

    True.

    But that doesn't mean they cannot.

    Edit: And for that matter, I suspect that you may have a broader definition of "racist statement" than myself.
