    This is correct except you forgot to add on to #2 hatred, prejudice, & bigotry against another race, based solely on race.

    Other than that, I agree.

    I thought that was inherent in my definition.

    Re: The new definition of "Racist".

    I do not like the first part of the definition provided for the poll because it allows people to assume intent and allows people to be ultra-sensitive.

    "You know, when they came and took away my fourth amendment I kept my yap shut, what the hell, I really didnít have anything to hide anyway. When they grabbed up my second amendment I sat still and bit my tongue because, truth be told, Iím allergic to guns. But here we are, you with your cold hard fingers wrapped around the neck of my first amendment and Iíve got to shout as loud as I can, because if I donít, before you know it, you wonít let me say nothing at all"

    I voted "other." Number 2 is a type of racism, but number 1... seriously? Someone may act negatively towards another person, of any race, for a variety of reasons - including that person damn well deserving it. It may or may not have anything to do with their race.

    Re: The new definition of "Racist".

    I think most people, especially older folks are subconsciously racist. That is to say, they probably dont even think what they are doing or saying is racist. This I think is another reason why conservatives get bunched up with racist because the vast majority of registered Republicans are older. I know a lot of older black folk that are the same way about white people also. A lot of the immigration stuff is most certainly tied to race as well.

    Re: The new definition of "Racist".

    I'm an "older person," 57,

    and until Obozo happened onto the scene and I started getting called a racist for anything I said about him,

    I was pretty much over the whole thing.

    Having been a nurse,
    I know that the races ARE different;
    being a logical human being,
    I know that profiling is the only sane way to apprehend criminals;
    wanting to know more from a scientific point of view,
    I've seen studies regarding the myriad differences between us.

    Recognizing that there ARE differences should help each of us to better utilize our own strengths,
    to pin-point problem areas that can be addressed and truly helped,

    not cause us to be labeled some hateful tag-name.

    This ostrich routine of ignoring our differences isn't logical nor sane, imho.

    Re: The new definition of "Racist".

    Stereotypes (and thus racial profiling) exist because a large enough subset of the target group exhibit the behavior. Black people do like fried chicken and watermelon. White people do like mayonaise. If you want to end racial profiling, convince the people of your race to stop the behavior being profiled.

    Case in point, the large group of black teens who looted and vandalized a random walgreens allegedly in protest over the trayvon martin shooting.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
