Fortunately, the racist posters here provide us with plenty of evidence.
Yes, you certainly do.

True. Only a racist such as your self can understand what the term means, being as you assign the term at will. Of course only to those who disagree with your racist rants.

Why don’t you enlighten us to the racism against illegal aliens? Also, please explain how opposition to lawlessness constitutes bigotry.

I got 12 kids on my baseball team. One Asian kid, two Hispanic kids, three black kids, and six white kids. How am I a racist?????????

Yeah, I'd like to know too. Both questions.

Silly me, I thought racism had something to do with race.

Both of those are completely bogus questions. You might as well ask how opposition to abortion makes one a vegetarian. I'm not claiming that anyone's "opposition to lawlessness" is what makes them a racist.

Likewise, the presence of some kids on a baseball team doesn't say anything at all about the coach's racism or lack thereof. But people who do think that this does prove something clearly don't understand what either racism or bigotry in the general sense are.

There are many definitions of racism.
Racism simply put is the belief that one race is inherently superior to another.
Another would be those in power using their authority against a specific race soley due to them being of a different race.
In regards to illegal immigration that is simply untrue. Where some cry racism is due to hispanics being the focus or the poster child of illegal immigration. The fact that hispanics are the vast majority of offenders being the cause of this focus might ellude some supporters especially those who say our policies are racist.

This forum taunts fly back and forth from all sides. Discussion gets heated and people say stupid things sometimes.
My bench mark for a racist. If they can look at children playing and hate on them because of race, ethnic back ground or culture then they are a true bigot. Anyone who can hate on kids well they are just as low as it gets.
We all know my stand on illegals. I have never seen a child I can hate by looking at them I dont and won't hate children of illegals. I dont even hate illegals. I hate the crimes they commit and the apparent sense of entitlment some have. I don't know any illegals well enough to hate them personally.

Wow never thought of it in the capacity you have put it in. Maybe time for me to get over the fact that a illegal killed someone very dear and close to me. And stop hating the whole race because of this. Literally speaking i do not hate the whole race, my best friends are Mexican and i love them. What i hate are those who come to this Country, without batting an eye, illegally. He was driving drunk, don't you dare tell me this did not happen, it sure as hell did.

I think so many of us don't hate illegals per say, because of their race, but because of the fact, that they are in our Country those of us born here, illegally. Some as i said yes have committed crimes, and because of the fact that so many of them, expect entitlements. I think that is what so many of us hate. I think what we hate, is the fact, that though they are here illegally, that they expect so much more from our Country then their own.

Well Jewel not sure what part of my post even elluded to drunk driving illegals and I certainly never questioned your word about what happened in your life.
I agree many hate on illegals for the entitlment mentality many have and the obvious abuse of our freedoms and social systems.
