    And yes, the use of the term has the EXACT SAME MEANING as the use of the word nigger.
    Are you being obtuse or are you actually this dumb?

    So we've gone from saying that racism requires institutional backing, to state institutional backing, and now "societal implications for those derided"? And without those it isn't racism? Are you kidding me?
    If you hate capitalism so much, then just write everything in lower case. Problem solved.

    No. He's arguing that the only definition of racism that matters is that which is in the dictionary.

    And don't take things to their absurd extremes.
    And I am implying that the use of the term "racist" is not defined by sociologists any more than it is defined by the dictionary per se.

    The meaning of a word is defined by the society that uses it. Not "pseudo-intellectuals" who get paid to tell us how to think, but by the people who make up the society as a whole.

    And, commonly in our society, the term racist is used to describe a person or group's dislike of and treatment of another person or group based completely upon their race, skin color, or ethnicity.
    "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.

    That is what you are saying.

    Incorrect.

    Racial bigotry has only to do with personal discrimination based on race. Racism has to do with a system of oppression and prejudice based on racial bigotry.

    Umm....

    Shouldn't we be striving for TRUE equality in the USA?

    I excuse nothing based on the past........ we'll never reach equality that way.

    "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"

    That's not what I'm saying. I don't think Obama approves of racial slurs. I think a meaningful percentage of Americans do in regard to blacks thus creating a system of oppression and privilege.
