    Oh, let me answer. Picaninney. Every southern troop formation had one to sing, dance and eat watermelon. Seriously, this crap is so far over the top I find it hard to believe these folks make these claims with a straight face. And Shrubby is going to fight for the elimination of racism in the US from Europe. Somehow I don't think any hatred of racism is at the root of this. I don't know why I would think such a thing...

    The correct statement from you would've been
    I didn't see the need for such a preface, as I had already clearly established where my perspective is established. I said specifically that my citation was from definitions/sociological and that my definition is the sociological one. That I hold my definition to be correct and the most holistic definition is a given.

    As progenitors of modern racism, I will defer my answer to White People.

    Everyone is held to the same standard, oppression and privilege by the majority power is racism (the institutionalized dominance of one race over another). Anything less is mere bigotry.

    Well, sociology is based on the study of society, not interpretation, from those studies one can begin to form sociological theory, such as feminism.
    Reviewers "slipping up" would be they let something with one or two bad details slip by. This was total and utterly made up garbage about how quantum gravity has progressive implications and that the scientific method "cannot assert a privileged epistemological status with respect to counterhegemonic narratives emanating from dissident or marginalized communities." No one in the scientific community would take crap like that seriously. Then the journal tried to defend the piece by saying "its status as parody does not alter, substantially, our interest in the piece, itself, as a symptomatic document." LOL. Oh yeah the article was completely made up and written as a joke, but we actually think its highly informative and a quality piece of work.

    The majority power now allows people of color to indulge in behavior that would be roundly condemned were it arising from white. The fact that the majority power is also white does not distract from such a double standard, even if such institutionalied attitdes are symptiomatic of white guilt and the attemt to address past wrongs by elevating the former targets to an inviolate position.

    I've asked him at least a dozen times to provide SOME sort of evidence. He refused by saying things like "oh you don't believe that institutional racism exists?" Someone else tried to, and I shut them down in post #298 on page 30. I haven't heard a response from them, but it seems that "institutional racism" is just another one of those things that people believe in but are hopeless to prove. Sort of like Santa Clause.

    Eco...with all due respect. You continue to purport that a sociological system theory regarding racism...is the most commonly used definition...and socially used form of the meaning of "racism". It's simply not the case. In an academic setting, you'll find various sociological systems theories disseminated.

    Are you aware that a person can actually be a bigot...and not be a racist? But a racist is always a bigot.

    I just can't agree with your definition.

    Gotta head to town...later yall...

    I never claimed any such thing; don't put words in my mouth The fact remains, it is the most holistic definition and includes the important aspects of oppression and privilege which are the real issues in racism as opposed to mere racial bigotry. Of course, the definition is not for everyone, as some people wish to ignore the sociological implications for one reason or another and dwell merely on the mundane and superficial aspects of racial bigotry.

    It is not a social theory. It is a definition that includes the sociological implications of racism.
