  2. Dictionary.com Racism noun -a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human racial groups determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to dominate others or that a particular racial group is inferior to the others. -Also called in·sti·tu·tion·al rac·ism [in-sti-too-shuh-nl, -tyoo-], struc·tur·al rac·ism [struhk-cher-uhl] . a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine, as promoted by the dominant group in a society to preserve the co
  3. I have no control over your hallucinations around here. Wicktionary...

  4. I said reputable source, so present your sourse... Thats what I go by. But hey, I appreciate you being a joke here ... have fun ... since you didn't bother engaging me until you felt like you could jump in here posting a disparaging remark at me along with your deficient definition LOL nice try fool
  5. Will there be a feature that allows members to upload their own media from their own device... or did I miss it, if it already exists?
  6. I believe it carried no weight as it was merely synonomous with the root of "dislike" when compared to 1,2,4,5,6,etc with respect to the reality being discussed here.
  7. Sure I can join you to pretend that 1 > 5 ... LOL ... what else would you like me to play pretend about, to please you?
  8. You can read, like you said. I'm not going to play your pretend game. You are guilty. I now see through your horseshit which I sensed from day 1...when I first registered to this website and asked a question you clearly didn't appreciate. Do me a favor ... you leave me be and you continue to hallucinate that that Merriam-Webster definition does not present Racism as a macro element of power affecting a society or a community versus the prejudices and hatred which pertain to individual humans. And yes, I still wish you good luck in your future endeavors ---
  9. No pal, the problem is that you cannot invalidate how Blacks have no power in the society to be racist with. Blacks merely hating you because your skin is White, is hatred or prejudice, Blacks hating you because you skin is White then denying you a job over that hatred? or denying you a bank loan or denying you a nice home in an affluent neighborhood or a cop brutalizing you over that? Racism!
  10. Its clear you only addressed me here, to attack my stance ---especially since you've now resorted to peculiar words with negative connotations. But you are countering the wrong element. Stop your aimless wandering here, don't counter me. Go counter Merriam-Webster LOL yes or any other reputable dictionary I can cite, which will do the same thing in terms of showing that "Racism" is very different from prejudice and hatred because of the power re: a society or a community. Face this.
  11. Which means I did what you do. Exactly. And so does everyone else in this forum. Nice try. :)
  12. You can focus strictly upon definition 3, thats cool. But I will continue to focus on the spirit of the, entire definition, since its totality speaks to groups of people and power ---and not to individual humans and individual isolated feelings such as prejudices and hatreds.
  13. You are correct. But you excluded context. This discussion is about the USA. We have laws, which do not allow to use tribalism to decide who gets scare resources and who does not get any.
  14. You are correct, but only partially. It is not racism for Blacks to hate Whites because of their skin ---because Blacks have no way to act out that racism onto the society. It is racism for Whites to hate Blacks because of skin color since Whites control the society ---then we can act out that hatred within the society's agencies and the society's imperatives, which should operate for all citizens and free of racism.
  15. same as the others ... a doctrine does not pertain to a single person being prejudice toward another person or prejudice toward a family, and the same for hatred parameters ... whereas a doctrine speaks more to a larger group, a community, a village, a town, a city, etc...
  16. We already did. That is how the society became so unfair and hateful, toward negros, because we Caucasians fought for our tribalism and then we won ---for 400yrs and counting. Face this.
  17. Depends on who is using it... Is it being used by influential Whites, to deny some societal imperative to some negro citizen ---where Whites control the society? Is it being used by low-income, ostracized, negros who took off the -er and added -a, to use the word as a term of endearment in the concrete jungle's ghetto streets?
