I said what I wanted to say, and as far as this topics concerned, that's the end of it for me.
Powerless people's 'racism' has no real impact on other peoples lives.
On the other hand, when people who have power are racist they have a huge impact on others lives.
I'm a results oriented person, I have no use or time for bull****.

2.) this is a nice opinion but the only thing that matters is the bolded part of your statement. its still 100% factually RACISIM regardless of the subjective opinion of its power
3.) again also meanignless to the word.
again its not that i disagree, its that the subjective opinion of power has zero impact on the definition of the word racist or racism do you agree with that fact?
Here's another question: Suppose the owner of the company apart from the choices he makes when acting on behalf of his business PERSONALLY gives preferential treatment to black-owned businesses when possible as a consumer. Instead of shopping for the best quality at the lowest prices where most convenient, he looks for businesses that are blacked owned as well and is even willing to pay a little more, be inconvenienced to some degree and sacrifice some level of quality in order to do so. His reasoning is not motivated by hate or thinking non-black owned businesses have some sort of problem he prejudicially imagines. Instead because he sees black owned businesses as a rarity and the black population in general economically depressed, he wishes to help them out with special consideration, at least until things improve in order to do what he can to keep as many of them as possible from going under. He doesn't do this exclusively, just when possible and happily shops at white owned businesses too when a black-owned option is not available. Is that also racist?

Absolutely and without question, you would be racist. Anyone who pays attention to skin color is, by definition, racist.
So you're saying because J is black, he's powerless and thus his racism isn't a threat to anyone? Jesus christ, racist much?
And please don't quote Robert Ingersoll in a post you claim black people are powerless. You completely and entirely missed his point.

I'll quote who I want to quote, when I want to quote them until the 1st Amendment is repealed.
Do you have a problem with that?
If so, then **** off, I don't have time to waste on you or anyone else who supports censorship.
You'll never shut me up.
BTW, I'll continue to support your right to free speech at the same time that you're trying to shut me up.

In my travels around the world I have seen much more of the later than the former. But doesn’t hatred or the feeling someone else is inferior, untrustworthy as you put it of another for no other reason than skin color and I would include ethnic background, the same. I suppose what it is called may be two different words, but the actions, feelings, etc are the same. At least that is how I look at it regardless of what any dictionary may say.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
