When people say things like "asians are really good at math and video games" they are making a racist statement. I hate to be Captain Obvious, but that's just the way it is.

Personally I don't have a problem with this kind of generally lighthearted and comparably positive racism, but I can see a few different ways why this could be deemed offensive by someone else.

If you're trying not to offend people, it's best to not be racist at all. That said, your audience is a good thing to consider before you make such remarks; it may be relatively harmless and just good for a laugh.

I think a new words needs to be invented here.

Racist being a full on prejudiced person and a new word for the likes of us lot who are just treating it as banter. Any suggestions?

That's not really how racism or double standards work, m8.

Look, as said, just report any comments you deem improper and a moderator will deal with it. Unless you have specific examples that have gone unnoticed, there's really nothing more to discuss.

Since you're talking about me directly, I'll just reply.

The rap thing was a joke.
The Zimmerman trial had some people saying some really racist stuff and I called people out on that. Now if you have a problem with that, that's on you. Not me or this site.
