They say racism is dying around the world but I disagree I see, notice and observe racism daily in my life as a non-white person in Australia. Most Australians are still very race minded in their outlook on everything. I am sure most or even all non-whites agree with me on this and have become attuned to how racist think and act: here is my epiphany today:

Have you noticed the jealous reaction whites give out in their body language and speech when they see a non white migrant is doing better than them? Now why does it only bother them that much when it's us non whites and not a white migrant. Their eyes and ears are closed to other whites who could be new migrants but as soon as it's a 'ethnic' their jealous hormones go into overdrive. How racist is that?

I think on the whole the government of Australia is not racist otherwise they would not let non white into Australia.

No. I haven't noticed this. Are you making this up?

Are you asking, or attempting to tell us?

It seems you are awarding yourself excuses to bolster a false claim.

Racism is defined as the natural complex human psychologically repulsive reaction on the basis of superficial judgement & ideologies on other humans belonging to either same/different species with respect to physical, cultural , behavioral attributes co- existing in a single society.

No. Racism (a relatively new word) is quite normal and acceptable in Africa, Middle East, South and East Asia. Racism (if that is then a problem) has been around since pre-human amoebas in these zones stopped playing in the Primordial Soup. It is certainly good to be proud of your culture and your race. And, it is a natural imperative to protect one's race, culture, and civilization. No one expects this behavior to be otherwise in the non-West.

It is only in the global West where Cultural Marxism has subverted and overwhelmed our societies, where being proud and protective of European race, culture and civilization is deemed negative.

Hence, enter cultural Marxists like you.

Oxford dictionaries
The belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.

By that definition, Indians as a race due their characteristics and non-abilities are inferior.

Free dictionary
a policy, system of government, etc., based on such a doctrine.
Discrimination or prejudice based on race.
(the Indian institutionalized caste system)

Did you ever answer the question asked of you - do Indians follow the caste system in Australia?

That was my own definition.
I don't know if indians follow caste system in Australia.
But i know that fiji indians don't follow caste system. And i am for that.

I suggest the word racism be deleted from the english language, it creates division and implies an us and them scenario. The word is misunderstood and misused too often, religious beliefs, skin colour, particular behavioural idiosyncrasies, dress, attitudes, actions do not denote race, but criticism of these these things more often than not gets lumped into the racist category.
Accusers throw the word racism left right and centre when criticised, for example, for an abhorrent religious practice such as FGM. Racist is a word misused to describe a group of people who for example may be speaking out about violence against women, muslims may receive criticism because domestic violence is common in their society, however this has nothing to do with race at all, it is an abhorrent practice considered to be acceptable in muslim society.
I think people should be taken individually, that is, not all africans are violent, not all indians are stupid, not all australians are intelligent but don't lump them into a race because it is not an accurate description of what they are.

It's embarrassing to cause so much distraction in every thread.
You should start a special thread discussing all your delusions about me and perhaps include Humbert as well.

I hope i don't see white angle aussies on an asian street next time. What a bunch of pathetic barbarians with no empathy or humility to yell at people just because of their skin colours. The fact is if they are challenged face to face, rarely they are brave enough to admit it. I hate rats and cockroaches for the same reason.

Criminal blood runs deep and long in this nation.

I occasionally relent and use the word 'racism' purely for the sake of sentence fluidity, but at heart I object to its use.

As observed by some others here it is a word used by most but understood by few (if indeed there even is anything to understand by it).

More often than not its degeneration into a mindless catch-cry is painfully obvious.

'Racism' as a word also has a twisted history of its own. At around the turn of the 20th Century it was more or less subservient to 'Racialism', the latter serving the purpose that 'Racism' purports to serve today.

As the early 20th Century progressed "Racialism" and "Racism" swapped dominance increasingly. We don't hear "Racialism" much any more.

One version of the rise of the word "Racism" to prominence attributes it to Russian Marxist revolutionary and theorist, Jewish Leon Trotsky, who in turn had adopted it from earlier academics. However it wasn't until after Trotsky's assassination that a new and more negative interpretation was cultivated. Some historians assert that this took place opportunistically in Jewish Think Tanks, sometimes also called "crime factories" in which perceived transgressions are given labels typically ending is "-ism". Thanks to this Judaic enthusiasm for codifying slights real or imagined, our world is strewn with more "-isms" now than ever before.

For those interested here are a couple of links.

My objection to 'Racism' the word is threefold.

Firstly I see it as a artificial contrivance to promote the agenda primarily of a select culture whose relationship with the rest of the World is mostly unrepresentative, coercive and judgmental.

Secondly it puts a mental-shorthand weapon in the hands of too many who over-use it and misuse it with little understanding but plenty of undeserved malice.

Thirdly 'Racism' has been weaponized by Politics and Law Enforcement to forbid many conversations that need to take place. The World is effectively bullied into grudging silence.

For these reasons I personally prefer a return to use of ideologically more neutral words readily available, such as for instance ... "Prejudice", "Discrimination", their derivatives and others.

Racism is like and ideology just like Communism or Socialism or Nazism.
Many components (often myths) put together make up an ideology.
Components of white racism includes belief that:
1) White invented everything.
2) white genocide
3) Jews conspiracy everywhere
4) governments are traitors...traitors everywhere
