TRUE DEFINITION: the overlying term for actions taken against a group of people because of origin or skin color.

PRACTICED DEFINITION: anything a white person does which could possibly pose a hint of a threat to the feelings of an individual of another race.

by the way people, when MLK JR. said that people should be judged "not by the colour of their skin but the content of their character", he didnt mean "make it easy as hell for black kids to get into college because they have a higher melonin content in their skin".

and lastly, Malcolm X was a racist, just like the KKK. anyone who denies it is a closed minded, irrational individual who should be considered as a candidate for a frontal lobotomy.

black supremacy is acceptable today, but white opinions are legally punishable. where has justice gone
affirmative action should be considered as racism and therefore a massive hate crime

Discrimination against someone based on their race. It is very commonly thought that racism is only when "white" people discriminate against "black" people. The truth is that anyone of any race can be racist. "White" people are constantly being called racist and can't seem to do anything involving "black" people with out someone going crook. "Black" people are rarely, if ever called racist.
"Black" people often acuse "white" people of being racist when things don't go their way or when they want something.

If you think this definiton has been racist, you are very stupid.
I'd sure like to be a black kid, so then I could pull out the ol' racism card whenever things don't go my way.

Contrary to popular belief, this is a concept not based on hate, but rather on treatment and assumption. True racism is a persons preferential OR hateful treatment of someone who has more or less skin pigmentation than said person, regardless of which person is darker or lighter. This is the real, non-urban definition of the word.

Religion does not factor in. Ever. That is religious intolerance or religious discrimination. Not Racism.

Sadly, preferential treatment due to skin color has become known as 'white condescention' an inherently racist term as it implies that only caucasians engage racially condescending behavior.

Racists forget that 'assumption' cannot be spelled without 'ass'.

A word of advice: Try not to get into an argument with an imbecile. Bystanders probably won't be able to tell you apart.
Rosa Parks' arrest as a result of her choosing to sit at the front of a bus rather than the back, a stipulation applied by a racist governmental system.

Also, the 180 degree turn that said system has taken in forcing employers to hire based on pigment rather than qualification is racism at work.

The assumption that everyone who wears a turban runs a 7-eleven is racist, as are the phrases 'I love (insert color here) people!', and 'reverse racism'.

It's the belief of people being inferior or superior solely based on their skin color. Really its not that hard to understand, but people keep peddling the misinformation that it must include prejudice + power and have forcibly trying to rewrite it as such. The prejudice + power is usually used to hide ones own racism. Usually anyone that peddles the prejudice + power are anti-white extremist or mistakenly belief that their own race, any color, is inferior.
Since it's likely that everyone has experienced racism by the time they read this I'm sure no example would be needed.
