A racist is a person that adheres to a system in which a dominant race believe they are superior and implements systems that privilege the dominant race at every conceivable social, political and economical opportunity. A racist in essence, wants to benefit from the oppression of other races.We don't live in a society where every racial group has equal power, status and opportunity.Yes, white people all over the world throughout history have experienced slavery and persecution but have not been enslaved, colonised or forced to segregate on the scale that black people have. They do not face housing or job discrimination, police brutality, poverty or incarceration at the levels that black people do. This is not to say that they do not experience things like poverty and police brutality at all but again, not on the same scale - not even close.Racists also discriminate across religious and cultural boundaries. Islamophobia is anti-moslem racism mixed with cultural intolerance. Anti-moslems are racists that target markers of moslem identity. Perpetrators of anti-moslem hate crime disproportionately target visibly moslem women, in the very same way racists target people for the colour of their skin. Anti-moslem racists often target Sikhs because Sikhs wear turbans, wrongly believing only moslems wear turbans.
any person who takes advantage of someone of a different ethnic group. Any person who offends, underestimate or make negative comments about other person of a different ethnic groups. Any person who uses stereotypes against others.
Example: i wanna make this guy finish my job so i can go early home. It Doesn't matter, is a Mexican
A person that obligingly benefits from historical racial privilege. This can be someone who benefits (consciously or unconsciously) the blatantly racist status quo by supporting it or simply not fighting it. NOTE: Black Americans, Asian-Americans, Indian-Americans, Latino-Americans, therefore, cannot be racist; they can be hateful or vengeful, but NEVER racist for they do not have the historical power/pretext.
Example: In a world without affirmative action, all "qualified" white people who entered college without considering the context/their inherited privilege would be racist.
Someone who doesn't like certain races. They can be extreme like the KKK, or even minor like calling somonethe N word. They think their race is the best and makes fun of others. By seperating or picking out someone by their race, they are being racist.
Example: Racist: "You probably cant get a job because your black, you smell cuz ur brown and you can't see because your asian. HAHA, im soo funny and creative." Normal guy: "your just an insecure jerk with no creativity or morals. You think its funny, but thats just being a pussy by being racist."
Someone who doesn't understand that his own people is just as full of shit as the next one.
Someone who always think his people/country is pure and innocent and the bad guys are always on the other side.
Someone who should meditate on his own mistakes before rushing into criticizing others.
Example: Racist Guy : I think muslims are barbarian who beat their wives and kill innocent people.
So basically I will prove myself more civilized than them by bombing their countries, raping their wives and killing their innocent children.
Example: The racist said to another racist:
"I hate you because you have blue eyes" and 50 people with blue eyes were hung.
The other racist said:
"I hate you because you have black hair" and 50 people with black hair were hung.
The third racist said:
"Wtf you guys are white, you should die then" and 100 white people were hung.
Later, all the racists were hung for crimes against humanity.
Example: Racists can occur within any ethnicity, and no one ethnicity as a whole is racist. In fact, to say that all members of a given ethnicity are racist, or that all racists are of a given ethnicity, that is, well... racist. Talk about being no better than those you complain about...
