Jewish should pay more since they have US support.....
I think you are confusing Judaism, which is a major world faith, with Zionism, which is a political ideology intent on protecting the rights of the state of Israel. Yes, Israel gets US support, but so do many other countries around the world, including Arab states. Jewish students pay exactly the same as everyone else for their university tuition as, in this country, we believe in the fundamental right to education on an equal basis, regardless of religion, nationality or ethnicity. Your opinions would be considered by many to be quite offensive so I would shut up if I were you.

No of course I don't wish to imply that as it is clearly not true. Just making the point that it is ridiculous to suggest students should be charged different university fees relative to whether their home country's government receives financial support from the US. Its such a ridiculous, unfair and absurd suggestion.

Precisely. Their are even Jewish groups who do not endorse Zionism as a concept. Whoever said that the US government funds Jews through their education must be seriously deluded. There are a number of Jewish students in college and they certainly don't receive funding from any government. This sounds like yet another ridiculous conspiracy theory to me.

OH FFS!!!!

We are all human beings - yes we have different beliefs from each other, look differently, talk differently, are different colours, but we are all humans - what the f**k does it matter? Can't everyone just get along?

Sorry but I am in a bad mood and people like this p**s me off!

It does say differences in 'human character' which implies that racists believe differences of ethnicity can account for different behaviour or mindset. It doesn't mean physical character.

OED says:

RACISM: 1. The belief that there are characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to each race.
2. discrimination against or antagonism towards other races.
