    Yes, the scenario you offer is racist in my opinion. Yes, minorities can most certainly be racist.

    I just never put my cursor over the numbers. Learn something new every day. Thanks. I thought it might have been eco. He and I went round and round about this a week or so ago. It was hilarious at first but then became tiresome with the "I'm right no matter what you say, demonstrate or provide as factual proof." On many other topics, I like the guy. He has a pretty good sense of humor. But on this subject... Well...

    I'm a black guy that owns a contracting Company. Its smaller, about 20 employees.

    Lets call it Agent J's Home Improvements and Landscaping.

    I dont hire any white people, I think they arent trust worthy simply because they are white so I deny everyone that applies. For me White = dishonest.


    Am I a racist, is this racism?

    For reference here the definition of racism:

    Racism:
    rac·istnoun or adjective
    1: a belief that
    race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race
    2: racial prejudice or discrimination

    People who have little economic or societal power's 'racism' will have little effect on those that it targets.

    Why should I care if you hate me if you can't have any effect on my life?

    Think about it.

    No fake landscaper scenario is needed. You have already convinced me via your posts in the past here.

    1.) didnt ask about power or effect, nor do those things matter to the factual definition of racism.
    2.) never suggested you personally should care
    3.) you didnt give me anythign to think about at all, your post has ZERO impact to my question

    now if you would like to discuss an individual's or group's ability to impact others based on race, gender, minority, majority in different areas/time frames feel free to do so in another thread/
    Honestly I might even agree with with you that minority vs majority vs time vs where does all matter to "impact" but those things change nothing about my question or the OP.

    Re: Is this scenario racism, Can minorities be racist?

    Yes, it's racism. The definition of racism doesn't include exemptions for someone in a minority situation. The population you are around doesn't make the act of racism any more or less racism itself. You could be an Asian guy that is racist against Arabs yet you live in an Asian nation where your race is a majority. Say your company has a contract in the UAE and you move there, now that you are a minority in a predominantly Arab area gives no justification or reversal of the fact that just because the Asian person in the example is now a minority that their mentality or actions are somehow not racist. Racism isn't defined based on the individual's race and anyone from any race is capable of being racist. Minorities, majorities, or even people that aren't even part of that population looking in can be racist.
