For me, it's hearing people start talking about how they don't care about the color of skin, but then they endlessly rant and rave about mistakes and shortcomings of another race. I think this is the technique used by talk radio show hosts.
What are the things you look for to determine if a person is a racist or not?
Everybody is a racist. Because everybody has irrational biases. Including you.

AGAIN, this is the TEXTBOOK DEFINITION of racism. You're generalizing about all of them based on the actions of a few. And you're (of course) suffering from selection bias. You've seen white people litter too, I'm sure, but you don't seem to think excessive littering is a white cultural phenomenon. Why is that?



I'm not making assumptions about what your area is like. I'm making the assumption that you're a racist because you KEEP SAYING INCREDIBLY RACIST THINGS.
Whatever you say, Rhymetime

And I suppose Muslim fathers putting death contracts on daughters that refuse to marry the men they choose for them or falling in love with men of other races/religions isn't racist them ? Unprovable ?

Whatever. The actions of those guys don't excuse your actions.

I never said it did. But it does point out that other cultures besides caucasions can be racist, which was all I was trying to point out in the first place but you ignored of course.

And of my actions you know nothing As another poster has said to you, you know jack squat about me.

Well it's funny how every time someone on this forum correctly points out that a poster did something blantantly racist, the accused poster quickly shifts to an "oh pay no attention to me, look at how racist THESE OTHER GUYS ARE" handwaving defense.

I am very well aware that other people are racist.

I know what you post here, and what you post here is blatantly racist. I guess it's POSSIBLE that you're actually not, and you just mistyped all that stuff, but seeing as you go so far as to repeat some of the things (several times!) I am not going to hold my breath too much.

Maybe that's based more on religion than race.

That's your opinion. You see what you want to see because it furthers your own racist agenda.
