    Awww... I'm sorry, time is up and you have failed to put down an answer.....

    How much did you wager?
    "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.

    I don't mind being called a cracker. It reminds of Christ Rock and then I laugh or at least smile.

    Racism doesn't have to be institutionalized to be racism. It just has to be someone who hates a race of people. Some black people and other ethnic groups hate white people too.

    What about gangs? A lot of gangs made up of minorities are extremely racist against white people, or if they're Hispanic, they might hate black and white people. What about the Black Panthers and that guy who was saying he wanted people to kill white babies?

    So............ what if a white guy calls another white guy the n-word, or a black guy calls another black guy a cracker. Is it racist?

    Racism is not just about bigotry and race, it's about systematic oppression and privilege. Taking that part out of the term is all but promoting ignorance.
    Well of course the system is dominated by whites. Whites are still the dominant race in the United States, and most people who are legal residents here are white.

    In some areas where there are a lot of black people (such as a lot of urban areas), there are a lot of black local politicians.

    The over-arching, national situation is what it is. Minorities spewing hate have no real power behind it, but when a white spews hate against a black... there's state power behind it.

    Racism is an ism. It's not something one can do alone and it's not something one can do without majority power and generally a history of unfair advantage. Removing the power and history from the term racism is belittling the suffering of those who have truly endured racism and not just powerless bigotry.

    Well, going by what blacks do the answer to this would be "no". From what I have seen and learned from blacks is that it is perfectly Ok to call someone of the same race any name in the book and it wouldn't be racist. Rude maybe, but not racist.

    Where is the state power? Again, show me one current law that is based on race.

    It's not officially sanctioned but it exists. Do you deny that racism exists and affects every level of society in the US?

    Using your theory definition...a single person in power..say a boss at a business who is racist (including the standard webster definition)...can impose oppression over another (or others) whom he or she believes is inferior because of their different race. I could be wrong but I bet that's been the case one or two times in our nation.

    Eco...there bunches of examples to apply if you want to stick to your "oppression" theory.

    A single racist skinhead can impose significant damage on others he or she believes to be inferior and infringing on his or her culture or way of life.
