By definition, racism is the belief in the superiority of one race over another, which often results in discrimination and prejudice towards people based on their race or ethnicity. Today, the use of the term "racism" does not easily fall under a single definition such as this one:

racist - a person with a prejudiced belief that one race is superior to others; a person with the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another.

What we can easily use to recognize racism is the use of stereotypes and overgeneralizations to describe an entire race based on the actions or attitudes of an individual or a few. A stereotype is any thought widely adopted about specific types of individuals or certain ways of behaving intended to represent the entire group of those individuals or behaviors as a whole. Overgeneralization is a thinking error that involves coming to a conclusion based on information that is too general and/or not specific enough. This is like looking at a whale and concluding that "since it lives in water and has fins it must be a fish."

In other words, as soon as a person starts referring to “they” and assigning a inference to an entire race based on the attitudes and actions of a few, that person is engaging in racism (ironically, we could find many white people who display the same traits these posters use to describe First Nations people, yet these posters don’t make the same blanket statements about Caucasians - racism). When they engage is such deflection techniques as “I’m not a racist, you’re a racist” (or “that’s what you are but what am I”), that person is likely experiencing cognitive dissonance (“I couldn’t be a racist, could I?”), and instead of challenging themselves to consider their own racist behavior, they go to childish and silly lengths to deflect from it.

So typical of the snowflakes. Change the definitions to suit their narrative. Water down the definitions so that they have no meaning or impact anymore. We saw it with terms such as Bullying, Oppression, Privilege, etc.

The use of language by social justice warriors frequently departs from both the dictionary definitions and the common understanding of words by most of the general population.

Wow, didn’t take too long for someone to step up and demonstrate their propensity to deflect instead of just reading for comprehension. Were the points being made really that elusive?

I thought this explanation was pretty clear. I was trying to keep it simple enough so that even some of our resident Menza candidates could understand. Is there a part of this definition you would disagree with? Which part of this definition did you find “watered down” or confusing?

For Greenie - would make your posts more entertaining if you switched up your fav word STUPID. So I gift you the following
unintelligent, ignorant, dense, foolish, dull-witted, slow, simpleminded, vacuous, vapid, idiotic, imbecilic, imbecile, obtuse, doltish.
Next up, Liberal Conservatives.

LOL - now that's some constructive criticism I can use. You are right. Constantly calling stupid people stupid is boring. I definitely have gotten lazy in my stupid people bashing. Simple-minded, imbecilic - nice!

I saw the other day on another forum someone referred to JT as "Prince vapid". I thought that was the perfect nick-name.
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy. Its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

Who's Dimples? Who's the MP for Kelowna? Both interesting questions that are hard to answer.

I think I'll just go back to ignoring your boorish attitude. Ciao

Well, if you are having such a hard time understanding a concept most would find so simple,
ignoring it would definitely be the next best option. :smt045
