    Well.....right there in the post you replied to I clearly stated...and I quote

    "It is derogatory in nature for the sake of demeaning.
    Seems like a clear enough definition to me. And yes...the trembling pettyness in how others have defined it is wrong.

    I know a Russian who just took a test to become a citizen. Others have done the same.

    Wake up dude. Our ancestors owned black slaves and some would even dropped two atomic bombs on two civilian cities. Despite this we hear the regurgitation of "Founding Fathers" or "Greatest Generation." With a Black man in the White House and a 40 year Cold War without a nuclear drop, I'd say we are quite a bit improved from what our ancestors displayed.
    Back then it wasn't racism, it was business, and it just so happened that racism developed out of that.

    Wake up dude. Our ancestors (to include the Founding Fathers) owned black slaves and a later generation would even drop two atomic bombs on two civilian cities. Despite this we hear the regurgitation of "Founding Fathers" or "Greatest Generation." With a Black man in the White House and a 40 year Cold War without a nuclear drop, I'd say we are quite a bit improved from what our ancestors displayed.

    "All men are created equal"...except for black slaves? I think our "Founding Fathers" would roll over in their grave if they saw Obama waving from the White House lawn.

    They'd probably say: WE NAMED IT THE WHITE HOUSE FOR A REASON! Then again he is mulatto and Jefferson had a few of them mulattoes running around...
