When a certain group of people is singled out. Althought I strongly am against rasism, ponder this...

In America, why is it that it would be socially acceptable to have a "Black Students of America" for instance but outragious to have a Caucasian student group? Doesn't that seem racisit?
My good friend applied to a scholarship program but was denied, not because he was underqualitied, but becaues he wasn't Islamic.Since my friend happened to be Caucasian, however, this act of racism went unnoticed.

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.

A term used to classify the act of hating a particular group of people because of skin color, origin, or religion. You should hate people for who they are, not what they look like or believe in. Only ignorant people are racist, and when asked "Why?" they tend to studder and generally look stupid.
Racist person: "I hate (insert race, group, religion, etc. here)!"
Person: "Why?"
Racist person: "Erm...uh...hm..."

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'.
