    I'm sorry, I can't stop laughing.

    There's no other reasonable response to such an overarching, outrageous claim. It was an insult--one can't counter an insult except with another insult.

    Mr. Rasselas,

    Correction, not an overarching, outrageous claim, but rather, a truism.

    The most recent discussion I've had involved being told Trump is not a racist. So as far as I can tell? There are no racists. The people saying the racist things, believing the racist lies, are not racists. The tiki-torch dudes? Very fine people. Guy who drove his car into the protesters and killed a woman? Most assuredly not a racist.

    So I would love it (you don't hear a note of sarcasm, you hear an entire fucking symphony) if someone would explain to me what a racist is, and why there actually aren't any in the world today.

    Thanks in advance.
    Then there would be no democrats

    Historical Indians and the Eskimo had conflicts too, racism is just another word for human behaviors that are assigned values depending on the civilization. What Americans want is equality and fairness for all. I think both parties would agree with that.

    Is that because you've selected the meaning of racism to suit your agenda!

To him, appearances are everything, and he doesn't hold back on criticism of women's looks without ever it seems, looking in his own mirror.

    The problem isn't his looks, it's his soul, or lack thereof.
    So what colours are 'included'?

    It's really difficult to partake in any honest form of debate about this subject when people are confusing the actual definition, drawing hard lines in the sand and picking sides.

    There are a multitude of bigoted statements, poorly drawn conclusions and badly worded suppositions made in our society. These acts do not automatically condemn one to being considered a racist. Neither does belonging to any political party, nation or religion.

    Being a racist is not any easy determination. Racism is not something you DO, it's something you think. Reading minds is hardly my forte.

    I will avoid most discussions about it on the internet, as very few people even have a good handle on what being racist actually entails.

    I'd consider it progress if everyone could just learn to question their own judgement of others to analyze where it comes from.

    A lot of what people call racism is scapegoating and rationalized by claiming the "culture" of particular groups is at the heart of their belief that they are more prone to commit crime or hate them first. Then the door is open to be mean to them without going through the trouble to judge them as individuals.

    And I don't have time to go into the roots of racism used to steal people's stuff. Colonialism, etc. Most white people aren't even aware of how their own history of exploiting natives in other countries has gone largely unaddressed and destroyed the culture.
    It's not just whites through out history that have dominated other groups.
