    It's a simple thing, TD. Equating racism and racial bigotry is stupid. Do you honestly believe there is nothing more to racism than racial bigotry? Can you really equate the two?

    That's what happens when you belong to the only relevant county on the planet.

    claiming one race cannot be racist is racist

    My claim is not based on race, it's based on social power dynamics. Could be blacks or otherwise, depending on circumstance. For example: blacks in eastern Africa can be racist against Arabs, perpetuating systemic privilege. But Arabs in eastern Africa cannot be racist against blacks, except on a global scale, as they lack the national/regional power to perpetuate systemic privilege or oppression.

    Why should I care what Turkey does? And why should I care about interacial marriage?

    It's just another excuse for violance. Humans are good at rationalizing bad behavior.

    You're claiming noting race, at all, even in a sociological context, is racist? Your definition has narrowed to "racism = noting race"?
    "Nigger" does not note race in it's most common usage.

    To believe it does is to have a race-centered view, and to then avoid the word is to give special treatment because of race.

    And giving special treatment based on race is racism.
