    You're skipping the point again.

    You have to have the power to abuse. Talking **** doesn't qualify. Nor does doing what many young people do regardless of race.

    They clearly had a personal bias, whether that was anti military, or they wanted to hire billy bob because they know his daddy.

    I don't jump to conclusions and assume it was racism.
    Nor should you. But if it happened to you over and over again, and always a less qualified person of the dominate race got the job, don't pretend you wouldn't notice it.

    The point being that you don't like the poll and so you wish to redefine the question in such a way that you can hope for a more politically correct answer? You're the one relying on historical racism and "well what about some random town in the South" data, here. The best man at my wedding is (was) a teacher in one of those random towns in the south. You don't find many male teachers in high school english / history that can get 9th and 10th grade minority kids in low-income households to willingly read, but he did because he's awesome. Then he got fired, but the black lady who teaches in the classroom next door who tells the kids to just do whatever is in the book and then reads magazines all day? Somehow she still has a job.... as do all the other black teachers... but all the white teachers... not so much...

    No, the poll mistakenly doesn't define the word, leaving it too open ended. That makes it a poor poll.

    And I've note that I can link data if you doubt.

    So if a bunch of black youths beat up on a white person because he's white, that's not racism?
