Dictionary.com's definition of racism, as follows:
1. The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
2. Discrimination or prejudice based on race.
Straightforwards, everyone can understand it, right?
The Seattle Public School District's definition(s) of racism can be found at http://www.seattleschools.org/area/equityandrace/definitionofrace.xml( Collapse )
So. Racism can only be practiced by white people against non-white people. All you people of color who hate another group of people of color, you're not racist (unless you believe in white superiority).
Oh, and apparently, if you are thinking of the future
, you are a cultural racist. Because we all know that no other cultures ever plan for the future, that is obviously a distinctly white trait, therefore is bad and racist. Also, individualism, as opposed to a collectivist ideology, is white-only and racist, the same with believing in a standard, 'proper' English.
There's a lot more BS in there, but seriously. I couldn't find a more racist definition of racism if I went to the KKK, folks.
