    That's not what the poster did at all. He stated that they would only be discriminated against if they met a certain criteria, a criteria that not all Southern Christians meet.

    Spare me the hairsplitting, I understand full well the liberal mindset about southerners. Snobby, elitist, Christian-hating, atheistic liberals who truly believe that most southerners are incestuous, religious freaks. We hear this **** all the time around here. Most don't know their asses from a hole in the ground about the South, but pretend to be superior.

    No, you do not, at all.

    Look, don't get your panties in a bunch just because you misunderstood someone else's post. The point was clear and concise, and your prejudice and confirmation bias let you see what you wanted to see.

    When it becomes racism (and wrong) is when that belief turns to the belief that some races are superior or inferior and should be treated differently.
    It's wrong is when an individual is judged based on the trends in his race, even if superiority or inferiority aren't involved.

    Racism is. Period.

    Whether it's wrong or not depends on the social values of the society you live in. I think racism to the point of hate and violence is wrong, but I also believe that humans have the inherent tendency of being wary of differences. Norms are defined by what everyone else is and you are not. If you arrive in a place where everyone else looks the same but you look different, people will have all sorts of ideas about you.

    We are a surface level species that depends largely on constant variables for social stability, and, usually, require generations to adjust to major change.
