    To be racist is just superficial- ME.

    Quotas were invented because they are needed and until they are no longer needed? I will support them. Man and man alone has themselves to thank for quotas.

    Are they still needed though? How do we know when they aren't?

    As for "man" thanking himself for quotas, I didn't do anything to justify discriminating against me to meet a quota.

    We need quotas because there are racists out there spewing hatred? That's your reason?

    Sorry, but quotas aren't designed to stop racism, they are designed to minimize the effects of racial discrimination. Huge difference.

    Racial quotas are discriminating, but not necessarily racist. Affirmative action does not mean quotas, race-based quotas are illegal in the US.
    There is no law which limits the "amount" of each race permitted in companies and schools.
    Affirmative action means quotas.
    I recommend you do a bit of background reading on this.

    Is this supposed to have something to do with racism? I don't see the relevance of this quote.

    Damn, 356 posts to figure out if racism is wrong? Can't you people figure anything out without my help? Some people could find their ass with a map.

    Re: Is racism wrong?

    By Racism do you mean that it is . . .

    Ethically wrong?

    Logically wrong(?)?

    Factually wrong?

    Morally wrong?

    Spiritually wrong?

    I'll make the assumption that the question does not ask if it is legally wrong.

    And for whom is it wrong?

    The Individual doing the racism?

    The recipient of the racism?

    Is it a group wrong?

    Of course they're racist. They are meant to be good, but they are policies based on race, and therefore racist.

    The answer is D. All of the above.

    Again, the answer is D.

    Only if a group is guilty of it. Otherwise, it is an individual wrong.
