    Obviously. It's 'pissing in the wind', without sociological implication or significance to anyone. To think otherwise is so egocentric as to stagger sensitivities. To remove sociological implications from an 'ism' is nonsense; it's nihilism for injustice, it's the promotion of ignorance via intellectually disgusting false equivalence.

That would be like ignoring context in an Israel/Hamas discussion and treating the two entities as the same thing.
    My son was a student in the Oakland, California school system. I had to take him out of that school system because of all the racial abuse he faced. There wasn't a single person in that school system that had the courage to say anything was at all wrong with a bunch of black kids taunting and hurling racist abuse at the white kid as they beat him up.

    You try telling my son it is only a "childish perspective" that would consider he might have been treated any differently, k?

    Your son's abuse has no societal implications, merely personal and family. Compared to institutionally pervasive oppression and privilege it is insignificant. While anecdotal evidence may be emotional and of great personal significance, racism (as opposed to racial bigotry) is a sociological discussion. This would be a case of, as others have falsely proposed, ~"it only hurts us if it hurts you"; there's no significant inherent sociological damage.

    We might take a pause to consider how those who claim sociology is BS nonetheless attempt to school us, to learn us somethin', about racism (which is inherently and by definition part of and nonexclusive of society). The very ones who most despise the discipline seek to proclaim authority within it. That's kinda comical.

    I wouldn't exactly call it meaningless, and rampant bigotry that is accepted by the mainstream in any community can be a real issue. Certainly to the point where it shouldn't be simply dismissed.

    That's one of the big issues in this discussion: ignoring the fact that blacks do make up a majority in many areas, and do control larger political systems like schools, local govt, ect

    How would it lack societal implications? You have a public school system allowing white students to be singled out and abused. It might be happened in a smaller societal context, than the national level. But it's still clearly operating beyond the individual and family


    when Compared to institutionally pervasive oppression and privilege it is insignificant.
    If it's happening in a public school system then how is it not institutional?

    For me, it would depend on context.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
