    Re #2: Really? Conservatives call everyone else racists? I would bet that if you tallied up the amount of times that democrats have called those that do not like Obama and his policies as racists and then tallied up the amount of times that conservatives have called "everyone else" racists the democrats would win by a mile. And you might want to note that the democrats have the better end of the deal as they only have to tally up references to Obama while conservatives get "everyone else".

    Blacks can call me whitey, cracker, hillbilly, redneck trash and it will never have the emtoional impact on me that it does on them being called the "N" word. Mostly, because they're subtley discriminated against a majority of their lives by the financially dominate, Eurasian global-centric economy. It's sad but a true reality. There are more and more successful blacks in high positions of business and gov than ever before, but still not as high a percentage per population. And obviously nobody is going to give them the highlife for nothing.

    It's similar for latinos who've permeated the West, as very Mexican in culture. I don't think it benefits blacks-latinos to have a innate hate towards all white people or to blame their own personal failures for not getting ahead, but many start from a difficult set of circumstances. They end up perpetuating a cycle of bad habits, coming from poverty, lack of education, job opportunity, drugs, crime, gang culture and reliance on gov subsidies that carry on from generation to generation acquiring a negative stereotype as a majority.

    So you can say "Awww... blacks can be just a racists as whites" and it's true, maybe even more so outwardly, but that will not change the reality of it carrying no significant impact financially/socially towards whites, because they're still controlling most of the opportunities. It took Europeans and American immigrants from Europe hundreds of years to become finanically dominate, and they're not going to give up a slice of their pie to any culture or race they deem as inferior and unworthy. Hell, they cut each others throats for success.
    he can pound away for ever, because the lie he keeps repeating will never stop being factually wrong

    "impact" is meaningless to the word racist/racism

    NOBODY here is denying that racism has different impacts for different people we are all simply pointing out the lie that "black people can not be racist" and laughing at how mentally retarded that "lie" is

    nobody educate and honest buys it

    Good day.
    another post that gets destroyed by another poster and you still have ZERO facts to support your repeated lie.

    Please post any factual support you have for said lie now, Thank you.
    Until then, the comedy that is your lie will continue to be laughed at and mocked because its one of the most factually wrong, dishonest, unsupportable and mentally retarded lies on DP.

    Seriously, stop pretending you don't know how to use a dictionary. Dictionary entries are exclusive to each other. When you first are taught how to use a dictionary, you learn this.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    So you're trying to say what? That the right does the same as the left? That's nothing new.

    Then you haven't read what's been written by several of the conservatives right here on DP. Of course, they'll swear up and down they're not racist....

    Don't try to twist things, guy - you know better than that and I'll call you on it every time. Are you going to claim that the left defends the "right" to discriminate, to tell people "we won't serve you because we don't believe in serving people of your color"? No? Because that's PRECISELY what several of your fellows on the right were saying on the thread I referred to. So how the heck are we on the left doing the same thing as the right? We aren't. The left is not the same thing and the right - that's a false equivalency and nothing more.

    An individual, by themselves, cannot 'do racism'. Racism requires the act of an entity (individual or otherwise) supported by systemic unjust discrimination.

    Seriously, one needn't be smart to understand that.
    You are deliberately ignoring the 'dictionary' definition that says it's the belief that one (an individual!) holds that one race is superior to another. Agent J posted it clearly for you, as did I.

    How smart do you need to be to read the dictionary and understand it?
