    Yes it is misusing it. Don't forget that if you change the word to mean what you want so you can use it to vilify people without them being able to claim you don't have a clue what racism means, then the word will lose all it's impact.

    Re: The new definition of "Racist".

    "way to broad" ??
    As written, this makes no sense.
    We need to have English, correct, proper English as our language.
    We need to learn to respect others.
    The "new " definition is OK, as far as it goes..
    As to our Mr Martin....He is a stringbean, young, and thanks to man's fear .....dead..
    Maybe in another 500 years, we can put racism behind us !

    In my "day", as I recall, there were no minorities on any team...slavery was still undergoing aboshiment...and it still is...things die slowly.
    There was so much fear and hatred of "blacks" that the very idea of one on a basketball team was unthinkable....and that(my fear) no one would enjoy a basketball game dominated with "blacks".
    Boy !
    Was I ever wrong !
    Glad of it, too.

    Re: The new definition of "Racist".

    If a person is a "race baiter", and not a "racist", are they a better person than a racist?

    This is something I do not understand. Being a racist is bad. Being a race baiter is bad. Why do we need a relative scale as to which is worse? Just do not be either, and condemn both when confronted by them.

    Re: The new definition of "Racist".

    in my opinion ,hatred of other ethnicities may be easily called racism.you dont have to believe that your race is superior in order to be a racist.on the other hand , negative criticism of a race or expression of a fact which belongs to any ethnicity doesnt mean racism..

    racism:

    1. the belief that a race is inferior to another race.

    2. hatred, prejudice, & bigotry against another race.

    I think that this "philosophy" will help us get over this difficult time (far too much hatred and fear)
