Racism is something that you all spend way too much time worrying about, trying to define, trying to quantify, trying to list the offenders and trying to use the concept to move your agendas.

I gave up caring about racism forever ago. I'm sure the word had meaning once but it has been overused and misused to the point of making it obsolete.

Calling anyone a racist is like pulling a fish out of the lake just to accuse it of being a fish. What's the point other than to hear yourself talk?

"...if we could just see beyond race. If only people didn't see race, it would be such a better place, and you are responsible for bringing up these icky race issues, Soledad, you should just let sleeping dogs lie,'" O'Brien said.

Simple: it is the act of singling out and judging an entire group of people based soley on thier outward appearance.

We are all in the human race, so if you are racist it should mean that you are against the human race?
If people who are different than you disturb you, you may be an ethicist.

ethicism:
a conscious tendency to moralize.
See also: Attitudes

I have to interact with many different people every day. Some I would choose to interact with and some I don't have a choice.
It isn't my choice at work or in public.
If you learn tolerance, your life can get better.
There will always be good and bad people wherever you go.

It is not racist to hire or choose ones friends based on stats and facts. Would you buy a car if you knew for sure 1 in 5 would break down long before they are supposed to or be 8 times more likely to harm you than another type?
