    I just decided to post this because alot of topics are coming up about racism..wondering if this is racist and that is racist. It is really weird how people who did not know what racism means, but then again I don't know what it means to be Jewish so anyway.

    Racist-a person with a prejudiced belief that one race is superior to others

    Predjudice-Preconceived opinion not based on reason or experience.

    Discrimination-The unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or things, esp. on the grounds of race, age, or sex

    Bigotry-intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself.

    Stereotype-A widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing: "sexual and racial stereotypes".

    Just because something is negative involving race does not mean it is racist. Most people on this site in the topics I have seen are using the word incorrectly.

    I just thought I would clear it up.

    Saddly the term racist like homophobes and other terms are way over used today, as weapon to abuse and too attack, to repress, and too silance an other's point of views; those diffrent to the abuser calling out racist or homophobes; the down side to political correctness.
