A term used to define a person that makes decisions on the basis of race. Race is a construction built to subvert races to the benefit of one race (guess which one? Hint: they are not the majority in the world). While bigotry is possible with anyone of any race, a racist is a person who belongs to the racial group in power. So while anyone can claim Native American heritage, whether true or not, racists have the unrecognized ability to mask their privilege and go through life without having to examine oneself. Not everyone is racist, but those who never question their privilege are enjoying the benefits of whiteness.
The racist attitudes of the posters shifted the blame to the marginalized group, in effect avoiding the issue completely. By the way, "crackers" was a result of the ones "cracking" the whip.

When someone genuinely thinks another race is inferior.

It's true that this word is unfairly used on a lot of white people.

HOWEVER, it is entirely wrong to say that black people are generally just as racist as white people.

Black people CAN NEVER BE AS RACIST. Unless they brutally enslave, torture and murder millions of white people. And that is never going to happen.

White people have a gruesome history of hundreds of years of murdering people. Black people .... Do not.

Therefore, many people are entirely justified in calling white people racist. Individually, definitely not. But as an entire race...well there are some pretty bad things to come to terms with.
P1: All white people are racist.

P2: You are a fool.

PA: Black people are just as racist as white people.

PB: I don't recall black people starting a slave trade...do you?

White people can NOT use it or they are racist.

Any other ethnic group can use it, although not all choose to.

94% of the time Caucasians are the racists in question.

Racists are looked down on.

This term is over used.

A REAL RACIST IS SOMEONE WHO LOOKS DOWN ON ANOTHER BECAUSE OF SKIN COLOR/RACE.

If you are a white, wealthy, concervative, you are racist.

A catch-all phrase used by those who are afraid of an individual who is typically a realist pointing out the blatantly obvious.
1)Aidan: "What did that fine, upstanding African American fellow down the street receive as a present for his birthday?"

Tom: "Your bicycle."

Aidan: "Why, you're a RACIST!!!111!!!OMFG!! It's worse than getting AIDS!!!!!!!"

2) Why should we encourage interracial relationships between American born Puerto Ricans and African Americans?

The end result would reduce crime, as the thieves would be to lazy to steal.
