    That alone can have positive effects on kids/people.

    3.) agree he is definitely out there
    He was being ignorant about "what" Magic has actually done with his charity and time. But also insinuating that his acquiring AID's from an unhealthy lifestyle was a bad example. Did Magic party and have unprotected sex, most likely but it wasn't horrible behavior.

    None of that changes the definition of the word.

    The definition of a social construct must be found in social context. Using individual context to define a social construct is nonsense. Your definition is incomplete. It merely considers individual actions, and you're supposed to be considering a social construct.

    It's not my definition. Sorry. There's a definition that has to do with institutional racism. You want that definition to subsume all others. Unfortunately, it doesn't. Not much else to say: institutional racism isn't the only form of racism, sorry.

    You're equating racial bigotry with a social construct.

    Have you ever called someone an "institutional racist"? No. Stop pretending that differentiating between types of oppression constitutes an change of context from social to individual.

    Institutional racism is explicit within institutions, it's not basic racism (sociologically speaking). It's a type of (real) racism.
