A racist is a person that adheres to a system in which a dominant race believe they are superior and implements systems that privilege the dominant race at every conceivable social, political and economical opportunity. A racist in essence, wants to benefit from the oppression of other races.

We don't live in a society where every racial group has equal power, status and opportunity.

Yes, white people all over the world throughout history have experienced slavery and persecution but have not been enslaved, colonised or forced to segregate on the scale that black people have. They do not face housing or job discrimination, police brutality, poverty or incarceration at the levels that black people do. This is not to say that they do not experience things like poverty and police brutality at all but again, not on the same scale - not even close.

Racists also discriminate across religious and cultural boundaries. Islamophobia is anti-moslem racism mixed with cultural intolerance. Anti-moslems are racists that target markers of moslem identity. Perpetrators of anti-moslem hate crime disproportionately target visibly moslem women, in the very same way racists target people for the colour of their skin. Anti-moslem racists often target Sikhs because Sikhs wear turbans, wrongly believing only moslems wear turbans.
Racists imposed a system where black people were and still are rejected from obtaining loans, thus blacks could not build wealth for future generations. When they are refused home loans to move into white neighbourhoods, they remain in poor neighbourhoods with depressed infrastructure, their kids go to underfunded overcrowded schools, drop out and with no job prospects due to racist employers not willing to hire them, they commit crime to survive and racist judges will give them longer prison sentences than they do to white folk. Racist police also target blacks more than white folk and charge them for crimes they didn't commit.
Upon release they cannot get decent paying jobs, they remain in poor areas, their kids go to underfunded overcrowded schools, the cycle of poverty continues generation after generation.

That is the reality of racist oppression and racism.

Get the racist mug.
in 2020, to be racist is to apparently know the true definition of racism, which is the belief that people are inferior because of the colour of their skin. it is now racist to make a joke, to disagree, to say a word even. of course black people cannot possibly be racist because they were oppressed in the past.
black person: “god i hate white people so much”

society: “LOL, bro! that’s funny/true!”

white person: “black people are annoying”
society: “WTF dude that is so racist!”

black person: “shut up ya white cracka
society: “yeah shut up!”

white person: “Nig-
society: “wow so horrible and racist!!”

Get the racist mug.
A person that obligingly benefits from historical racial privilege. This can be someone who benefits (consciously or unconsciously) the blatantly racist status quo by supporting it or simply not fighting it. NOTE: Black Americans, Asian-Americans, Indian-Americans, Latino-Americans, therefore, cannot be racist; they can be hateful or vengeful, but NEVER racist for they do not have the historical power/pretext.
In a world without affirmative action, all "qualified" white people who entered college without considering the context/their inherited privilege would be racist.

The unconscious racist does not think about the American penal system: modern-day enslavement, free labor, ethnic cleansing.

Many Chinese still see the Japanese culture as embedded with racism due to the years of imperial control and maltreatment they inflicted on other Asian cultures.

1) Anyone who claims that people of different skin colours can't get their asses out of bed in the morning. Typically someone who can't be bothered getting his or her own ass out of bed in the morning.

2) Term thrown back at anyone who DARES to criticise Jews or Moslems.
He's a racist. Every time he goes to the Social Welfare offices, which is often, he makes a point of sneering at all the Blacks and Pakistanis who are reduced to the same situation.
