    It's not racism until it becomes a system of oppression and privilege - that's what the real subject is, not merely prejudice based on looks. Until it permeates a system and brings real consequences against a group, it's just common bigotry and no more meaningful (sociologically) than pissing in the wind.

    Stop making conjectures.

    You can keep saying no all you want. It doesn't change the fact that if you're black, and someone calls you a "nigger" the only reason that word holds any power is because you're permitting that word to hold power. It's just a word. Its power is an illusion, and nothing more.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    The word holds power because racism exists against blacks. There is no sociological racism against whites and prejudice against whites carries no weight. Prejudice against blacks did and does carry weight against blacks.

    I'm not denying that racism exists towards black people and other minorities. I just don't think it's as a big a problem as some people make it out to be. Personally, I don't think I know anyone who is a racist. If someone I know is a racist, they are VERY quiet about it.

    I think that people like Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson do nothing but perpetuate hatred and a victim mentality among black people too. If you FEEL as if you are a victim, what does that make you?

    That's not material to my sociological argument, beyond actual racism existing in America today and affecting society.

    Race baiting is not racism.

    What's garage? Was that supposed to be "garbage?" J/K. I couldn't resist pointing that out.
