Racism is oppression based on racial hierarchy.

Bigots come in all races, but by definition, black people (for example) cannot be racist to a white person.

Some non-white people do "play the race card." However, I'll point out that white people "play the race card" every day of their lives. They may not know it, but they do. Such is the privilege of being white in this country.

The legacy of slavery has benefited every white person in this country—directly and personally. In a very gross analogy, if you run a series of foot races over 300 years but prevent 13 percent of the participants from learning how to run for 180 years and then give them concrete sneakers for another 80 years—but allow them full access for 40 years, it will take the 13 percent quite a few races to be competitive because the other 87 percent advanced their skills by practice and repetition.

Life is not a foot race, but it is a fact that the average white person would not economically benefit from switching places with an average black person (black households average one-tenth the household wealth of white households). If you believe all people are created equal, there has to be a reason for this—and there is: racism.

The reason behind David Stern's new age limit to be allowed to play in the NBA.
Man, that new NBA age limit imposed by David Stern is motivated by racism!

Displaced self loathing.

Blacks are bigger and stronger than us because we worked their asses hard back in the day.

Also see, Homophobia.

black people think that white people hate their guts because they are black which causes them to hate us which is called reverse racism.This is for the guy that sick of all the racism in the world,if you can't make any sense of Jesus' death then you can't be a true Christian,the Romans crucified Jesus because He said He was God (which he is)while He was hanging on that cross He could of called angels down to save Him but he didn't because He was put on this earth to die for our sins so that we can have a relationship with God,He made it possible for our sins to be forgiven and all you have to do is ask God to forgive you. Oh yeah, if you were a true Christian then you wouldn't be cussing all over the place because you would know that God wouldn't want you to do that. If anybody has any questions just write them on here and I will answer them.
For God so loved the world that he gave His only son that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting lasting life
