    –noun

    1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.

    2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.

    3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.

    You are wrong.
    "a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement"
    Hence, changing a claim towards an individual once learning of his race, is wrong.
    Whether it's a positive change or a negative change.

    So even though he kept the term after knowing it was racist, because he says he is not, it's OK? I see.

    My comments had nothing to do with your culture or mine. You should have changed it and let it go.

    The first person stood by his words, because he did not want to change his opinion based on race alone.
    The first person has also made it clear that he is against racism towards blacks and in general.

    The term is only racist when applied to a certain race.
    The first person did not know the other person's race.
    When he used the word 'ape' it carried no racist meaning.

    yes he did. and I am supposed to take that at face value after being called a "dancing ape" and continue to be called such? No thanks.

    But now you know and you continue to say it is not racist when it is.

    The first guy explains that he didn't know that the other person was black, but that he would not change his mind, because he made the comment without knowing what the second person's race was, and changing it once knowing what his race is would be wrong.
    The second guy claims that he is still racist because he did not change his opinion once he was informed about the race.

    Now my question is this:
    Is the first guy a racist?

    Edit: Please add a poll, and make it public.

    calling an ape and ape isnt racist, unless you dont believe in evolution.

    That is also true, humans share nearly 99% of their genealogy system with the Chimpanzee.
    But that's a whole different topic there, Oxy.
