During a search of his backpack, the report said, campus security officers found 12 pieces of women's jewelry, a watch and a screwdriver that they felt could be used as a burglary tool."

It was also revealed that he might have attacked a bus driver, according to a Twitter account that it is claimed belonged to the teen.

Are you calling the entire police department in Furgeson and the National Guard Thugs?
They were following orders from the governor of the state to stand down and not escalate the violence. The police chief and the governor were at odds over this decision.
Or, in other words, no it did not happen.

And this is skipping directly past examples like Richard Sherman, Common, the people of Ferguson and the Preisdent.

So let's get things back into focus. The plain fact is,too many conservatives have gotten into the habit of calling people "thugs" based entirely on their skin color. And yes, this is racist. That's the end of the matter, really.

Disregard what I said earlier, some people took that to literal...."So if I say" is not the same as "when I say"...

Anyway, If I say, I don't like dread locks.....does that make me racist?
It is a childish game...a race to see who calls who racist first. Sort of like being in kindergarten. "You do it, no you did it, no you did it,etc.etc"

When some folk go on the racist rant (you know) I just think they degraded back to being children if they ever moved forward in their lives.

What did Kipling say? Whose burden?

Yes. Everyone has some fear of other races, as all animals do. Its natural...
Then there are civilized people that were brought up color blind, and I dont give a crap about your color, as its all about character..

Racism is based on a theory that humans are split into a variety of separate "races". In fact, there in no biological basis for this type of thinking.

Unfortunately, we have mainstreamed this vile theory here in our country, as the Europeans have also. So now the false idea that there are different "races" of humans is taught in our public schools and mindlessly accepted by the masses without really any question or objection.

So to answer the question in the OP, the vast majority of Americans are racist, because they accept and believe that this vile and very wrong idea is correct.

Of course what confuses matters is that being a racist is regarded as a bad thing, so rather than accept the fact that nearly everyone in our society is a racist, some people have attempted to redefine it in a way that allows them to be excluded from being characterized in this way. Nevertheless, if you believe that humanity is split into different races, then you are a racist.

The idea that we are divided into different races based on variances in our skin pigmentation is patently absurd. There is only one race, the human race.
