    People make that mistake much too often
    In debating, dictionary definitions, credible historical definitions, or credible definitions from other third party sources are all acceptable means of attempting to define words. Unilaterally making up a new definition to suit your argument isn't generally considered a valid debate tactic by anyone, anywhere, in any context.

    Words have meanings outside the dictionary meanings. It's part of language.

    Do dialects not exist?

    I can understand his point to an extent, but to say that minorities cannot be racists is kind of silly. Of course anyone can be a racist. It's not exclusive to one particular race, that's for sure. It just so happens that white people are the majority in this country.

    Racism has nothing to do with with that.The only one indulging in ignorance is you.The dictionary is pretty clear what constitutes racism.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Racial bigotry without oppression and privilege quite misses the point of the term racism.

    You are starting to make me think of Joe Dirt's Dad..... "It just is!"
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Again racism is not a verb.

    Yes, though for the purposes of debating, people use words for their actual meaning rather than colloquial variants. However, his misuse of the word racism wasn't related to dialect, it was simply an attempt to twist the actual meaning of a word to suit his personal agenda.

    Ok, I tell you what, this is a one time only offer: what the **** do you want?

    You want me to prove that bigotry against blacks continues to affect the US at all levels of society?
