I am racist

As a matter of fact, I am REALLY racist

HOWEVER, I am not prejudice. And there is a difference.

You see, racism is the simple belief that people are different from one another based upon race, whether smarter, stronger, better adapted, or what-have-you. Prejudice is believing that you (or anyone) is fundamentally 'better' because of race, sex, creed, or any type of thing based on the sole principle of them having it in the first place

It works the exact same way with thinking about dog-breeds and different traits they all share, down to intelligence or physical ability. And everyone who thinks dogs can be different based upon their breed is just as racist as I am

The idea of "races" was dumped by the UN in the 1940s in favor of the term "Ethnic group", as the term race has no meaning. Human genotypes vary very little from population to population, even if the phenotypes do. It is possible to have two Norwegians with greater genetic differences than between either and an individual from the African Sahara.

You flipped the 2 definitions around.

racism means you mock other races because of what they are. example: "Why do you have a book you stupid ****** ? you know well enough you cant read!"

prejudice means you are aware of another races downfall or differences. example: You dont walk near black people because you are afraid youll get raped. Or you give them chicken because you know they love chicken.

No, the REAL definitions have already been stated. Here...

Racism: The belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, esp. so as to distinguish it as...

Prejudice: Preconceived opinion not based on reason or experience.

I didn't flip anything around. You are the one incorrect in your definitions

no thats not what racist means.

Oh, I'm sorry, I guess the dictionary is incorrect and inferior based upon your opinions

Yeah no,

Prejudice is the idea that there are differences between races. Racism is acting on these beliefs. You can't be a racist without having prejudice.

No yeah. You can be racist without acting on prejudice, as racism is simply the belief that races have their own traits and characteristics based upon it itself, prejudice would be hating them for it. I am racist, I am not prejudice

So what you're saying is, some races are smarter than others, but they're all just as good.
User avatar #63 to #48 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (05/25/2013) [-]
No, what I'm saying is some have a natural affinity for heightened cognitive ability, while others have a natural affinity for larger muscles/faster metabolism, while others have a natural predisposition to resistance/toughness against certain environments/effects, so on, so fourth

So yes, they are all just as good given a certain circumstance

Racism is believing all other races are inferior to yours.
User avatar #65 to #43 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (05/25/2013) [-]
No, as stated above, racism is the belief that all races carry their own traits and characteristics specific to that race (or rather, an affinity or disposition toward it). Too often is even a single word portrayed as bad by the media when too few people actually know what it is. It's exactly what happened with Communism
