    No doubt. But considering today's social and political climate? I'd have to say that it's spot on.

    Well before we can define what a racist is, we need to know or define racism...

    1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
    2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
    3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.

    Examples:

    1. White people are better because we are white.
    2. Nazi Germany and the treatment of Jews.
    3. White or Black nationalists who believe they have the right to segregate from everyone but their own race.

    So it is pretty simple.

    The problem is far to many see bigotry or insensitivity as racism, and I think it is just thinned skinned and stupid.

    Part 2 is right.
    The 1st, is just awful.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Racist:

    1: Anyone that says or does anything even remotely or subjectively negative towards someone that is not of their race.

    2: A belief that your race is superior to that of another race.
    You left one out

    3. Any white person

    Re: The new definition of "Racist".

    The word already has a definition and one that works perfectly fine. The fact that people misuse the word is the problem, not that the definition is wrong.

    I fixed that for you.

    Actually, it is common among idiots to call any one they disgree with on any topic remotely related to race in any possible way "racist".

    I think today there's two problems.

    The first is people who see racism everywhere.

    The second is people who don't think it exists at all anymore, and when it's mentioned, it's called "race baiting" and you're called a racist for bringing it up.

    Which isn't to say there aren't race baiters out there.

    But is it misusing it? We all know that the definitions of words change. Is it possible that the definition of "racist" has changed and those of us that actually adhere to the older definition just haven't realized it yet?

    Also everyone please note that my OP was half satire half serious.

    The conservatives have done this to themselves.
    Akin to the Islamics, they must clean their house.
    As yet, all the brooms are idle.
