    Yes or no: you think every definition of a word needs to apply in order to make its usage correct?
    In the case of racism, yes. Otherwise, one is equating bigotry with racism.

    Is that the only word in English that you hold to that standard?

    Well, there's simple nihilism for ya. Why bother with equating bigotry and AA with racism when one can just proclaim everything is racist and thereby racism is not so much a problem as a natural state. Wonderful.

    COrrect so stop doing it. Use the terms properly so your factually wrong views are no longer part of the problem. Your views perpetuate and empower racist and racism and its part of the problem and so sad in 2014.

    Honestly, if you're treating the word differently than every other word in the English language as far as the actual definition goes, the issue is with you, not with other people.

    It would help if you realized that. Before you launch on a tirade against someone for using the word wrong, remember that you're the one that's not following the dictionary definition, not them.

    I'm equating racial bigotry with racism because according to the dictionary, racial bigotry IS racism.
