A racist is a member of a racial group who has the power to subjugate other racial groups. A racist benefits from institutionalized racism.

Does that mean that even a benevolent person from the dominant racial group is inherently racist as a result of institutionalized racism?

Jan 18 Word of the Day
1. Blue Monday is the most depressing day of the year, calculated by Dr. Cliff Arnall, a researcher at the University of Cardiff's Center for Lifelong Learning.
Factors used to calculate the date included weather conditions, debt level, time since Christmas, time since failing our New Year's resolutions, low motivation and feeling the need to take action.

In 2005 the date was calculated as January 24th, in 2006 it was January 23rd, and in 2007 it was January 22nd.

2. A song by the hard rock band Orgy from their album Candy Ass.
1. Guy: "Aw man, I feel like absolute shit today."
Friend: "Yeah, same here. I hate Blue Monday."

2. "I wish I could sing Blue Monday to my ex-girlfriend, she's such a bitch."

1) (Most common manifestation) A white person in a white society who sees non-whites as being inferior AND has the ability and/or desire to prevent non-whites from achieving success and/or quality of life within said white-controlled society. The institutions controlled by a racist society (schools, courts, jails) will necessarily be racist as well.

2) A society of the same mechanism (i.e. the group in control of the society keeps others from being successful) within another culture (i.e. India, caste system)

3) Commonly confused with prejudice, bigotry and bias, which can be exhibited by any individual in any society. Racism has a different connotation associated with the person being able to use prejudice, bigotry and bias to, for example, kill someone because they were black (and "inferior") and THEN be acquitted at a murder trial with a racist jury and a racist judge. A black person committing this crime out of prejudice, bigotry and/or bias would not be acquitted by a racist jury and a racist trial...in fact, they probably would have executed the black person and realized the cops just picked up a random black man off the street (because he was a black man), so they executed the wrong person. If it was a black-controlled society with white people systematically being executed for committing crimes they didn't commit, one could argue that that particular black society might be racist.
A racist society will most likely have a majority of non-whites employed in some sort of servitude to reinforce the position of non-whites as inferior, presently or in the past. Contrary to popular white racist belief, non-whites are not employed as maids, servants, nannies because they love serving white people. A racist society is designed so that a majority of non-whites must openly acknowledge inferiority (usually through servitude) in order to be allowed a small share of resources - typically just enough to stay alive.

A lot of people on this thread were probably called racists and decided to deflect the definition of the word back on the person who called them racist INSTEAD OF trying to understand why people are calling them racists. Please ask why and they might explain. Racism is EXPECTED...A NORM...for minorities in the US and Europe...when someone calls you a racist, they are letting you know that you are an extreme overt manifestation; perhaps discussion will result in mutual benefit...perhaps your statements were misconstrued...or perhaps discussing it will help you realize how racist you truly are...the first step is acknowledging that you have a problem.

the true deffinition is believing that one race is superior to all other. Hatred without reason of another race. ETC.
SADLY today that has changed.
In todays world this is what makes you racist:
Mentioning race in any way
Not being totally politically correct
Supporting your race
Being white
Telling a racist joke
Judging by hair color
Disliking something someone likes
etc.
As you can see this word is grossly over-used and mis-used. It's truly pathetic. I pity the world. The truth is racism is ignorance and is bad. But not everything is racism and not everything has to be about race. Hope you learned something!
Real example of racist
racist: (insert race here) is better than every other race. I think that (insert different race) people are disgusting and horrible and should die.

Idiot's example of racist:
person: I don't like blondes
idiot: OMG RACIST!

guy: I hate Green Day.
idiot: OMG RACIST

dude: My friend is black
idiot: OMG RACIST!

man: I'm white
idiot: OMG RACIST

woman: I'm proud of my race
idiot: OMG RACIST

stranger: So an (insert race) guy walks into a bar....
idiot: OMG RACIST!

someone who thinks that people of other ethnicities are inherently inferior to one's own.
Racists can occur within any ethnicity, and no one ethnicity as a whole is racist. In fact, to say that all members of a given ethnicity are racist, or that all racists are of a given ethnicity, that is, well... racist. Talk about being no better than those you complain about...
