Well...Today i said i didn't like Lewis Hamilton and i'd rather see Massa win(F1 if anybody doesn't know), as a joke my friend called me racist.

This made me wonder...

Why do people get so worked up about stuff that might be seen as racist when it blatently isn't?

An example, a white person says that they dont like a single Muslim or other race, some people may claim this is racist and completely ridicule the person for being so, what posesses the ridiculer to seriously make this claim?

Discuss or give your examples of OTT racism

It is racist if you dislike or discriminate against the person because of the race. If you don't like them because of an unrelated reason then it is not racism.

A lot of people use it as an easy accusation. For example, I was over at gamefaqs the other day and someone was asking what was everyones favorite sandbox game GTA series, Saints Row series etc. As soon as someone said they didn't like San Andreas 50+ people called them a racist.

I was dumbfounded

This just in! Some people are morons!

I got accused of being racist because I said something about the inhabitants of Pajala (a swedish town). People don't know what racist means...

I'm not sure if this sarcasm?

Now, of course there are more "serious" acts of racism (violent hate-crimes, genocide etc.) but regardless... Racism, whether it be the systematic eradication of a group or the systematic identification (stereotypes), is still racism.

I think one of the big issues is that white people don't understand how racist they usually are.


The above sentence was meant to ironic to what I've been saying.

no no no, you've got it all wrong.

it's only racist if a WHITE person says it.

if it's a black or an asian saying it then it's acceptable...


aparently.


it's the same as women cant be sexist or that gays cant be heterophobic.

it makes sense.

Did you mean "A white person says that they don't like one muslim person"? If so, yeah, I experience that too, although never me myself because I don't go around saying I don't like people. I'm a pretty chill guy, I have no enemies.

I believe Racism can be cured by listening to Bob Marley



ye he is really atreasure on the issue.

mind tho, that the Rastafarian Church was accused as Rasist because it was promoting the Black race as the unique and chosen race until Haile Selassie went out at a speak to the U.N. and aborted all racist ideas from rastafarianism.

the rastafaris are often acused ass Jewish-Hatin, which is also very stupid and historically-politically unaware and unfair

I'm racist, Everyone is racist, not everyone is VERY racist, but everyone is a little bit racist, people shouldn't care so much, at least not until it gets to a violent level, but before that, what's the big deal, I call my black friends ****** all the time, they don't care, they just tell me they'll beat my cracker ass then we laugh and have another beer. Racism isn't as big a deal as most minorities (and certain uber-liberal white people) think it is.

Edit: in many cases, Racism is awesome, The black comedians are always the best because they can make the racial jokes and they won't get teamed up on by 5 black guys in the alley behind the comedy club after the show.
