It is would be a foolish error for someone seeking a team of good runners to only hire East Africans without assessing each individual's abilities. Some East Africans are not good runners and many people with other backgrounds are as good or better runners. The racist's error is the notion that racial tendencies are more significant than individual characteristics.

Thinking that the race of your child's spouse is significant makes one a racist, because it is based on the nation that "race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities" and infringes on your child's freedom to choose.
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
emotional based arguments are doomed to failure.
second....you are a hypocrite, if somebody judged you based on your race, you would call them a racist.
you don't know me, and if you read most of my post i dwell on constitutional law mostly, and i have never supported the ideas of national socialism at all, however you have judged me........and assumed i do...making yourself look like as A**.

THE second point to be examined is, whether the [constitutional ]convention were authorized to frame and propose this mixed Constitution.
I've written about it before.
But unlike those who think there's nothing wrong with racism, or those who either don't recognize their own racism or - if they do recognize it - think it's not something they should be concerned about, I came to understand just how wrong it was...and how deeply it is ingrained in our society.
And racism in our society is like a room with a pile of excrement in the corner - if you don't clean it up, and if you stay in that room long enough, sooner or later you don't smell it anymore. That doesn't mean that the excrement somehow went away - it's still very much there - but you just don't notice it anymore.
Maybe you don't want to clean up that pile of excrement...but I do, and I will do my best to do my part.

There are many more religious bigots, and I don't mean people who only criticize one or more religion's teachings. The religious bigots hold the "belief that religion can be the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that religious differences produce an inherent inferiority of a particular religious group(s)."* These people are bigoted against almost one third of the world's people.

Sure, people are more complicated than a single aspect. Can a racist person be a generally good person? Of course. They're just less good than they would be if they weren't racists.
