Silly question. You state that you're avoiding them becasue they're a rapper wannabe, not because of race. I suspect that this is just intended for a response though.

Some here would say that rap is part of black culture so to them it would be racist

Not at all. I say negative look begets negative response. I feel the same way about the goth look, all black and dark. I assume they want to look as dark as they can. They are looking for a negative response for attention.

You may just not like rappers, or rapper wannabes. I've seen a lot of white guys that fit those descriptions. Do you avoid them too?

a rapper IS NOT a race.

A rapper can be black, white, orange, pink, green.

get the point?

Then it would follow that your avoidance is more related to them looking like a rapper than to their race.
