    You can't be racist if you're not white!

    The definition of racism comes in two parts

    You must discriminate based on race (which white people do as they have positions of power)
    You must also believe your race is superior (which white people do believe as there are over 45 white supremacist groups operating in America with over 10 million supporters.
    So you basically think just because some white supremacist groups exist, that means all whites believe that their race is superior? Because you're saying the reason all non-whites cannot be racist, and also that you cannot be racist towards any whites, is because white supremacists believe whites are superior, which does not make up all whites. Not all whites think their race is superior. Mind-blowing, isn't it? :dots:

    You don't catch on very fast for someone who claims to have grade 9 predictions... :facepalm2: Someone has already disproven what you've said, so I'll say it again in slight twist on your own words:

    'The definition of racism comes in two parts

    You must discriminate based on race (which anyone can do, for example, a black person insulting a white person simply due to his/her race)

    You must also believe your race is superior (which again, anyone can believe and people from lots of different races do believe that their race is superior)'

    You need to remember the definition applies on an individual basis, so that requires the subject themselves, and only themselves, to believe that their race is superior and discriminate another of a certain race based on that belief. And just to make sure you're getting it in your head and understanding what I'm communicating to you, I've included the two quotes that both debunk your imaginary parameters required to commit racism.

    BELIEF. Learn to read.

    Anyone can believe that they are above others. Your straight 9s mean nothing, fool.
    (Original post by k.n.h.)
    You view it as such, not all other people. You're the one with a victim complex. Also, you're misinterpreting the meaning, the definition is applied to individuals, it says the 'on the belief that one's own race is superior', and individual people of any race can discriminate based on the belief that their own race is superior. And as AspiringUnderdog helpfully pointed out, anyone can believe their own race is superior to others.

    Oh dear, you really are just a moronic racist troll aren't you? Reported.
    A report won't do anything. I haven't broken TSR guidelines. Nor have I sworn or called anyone names if they didn't agree with me.

    It is very much possible for black people to believe that their race is superior. But you match that to the representation and overall view of black people generally, their isn’t enough out their to make that argument. Therefore, believing that blacks are superior in my opinion is counterintuitive which is the very reason why she and I make the argument that black people cannot be racist.

    racism is a tad bit deeper than racial discrimination which a lot of people have referred to as racism in this thread.

    There is no proof to show that the whole black race thinks that they are superior to others?
    There are over 20 countries in Europe and every single one is guilty of racially discriminating at least one black or ethnic minority!

    If a white person went to Africa they'd be welcomed but unfortunately that white person will view themselves as superior and feel it is their duty to do missionary work/voluntary aid in a LEDC,

    Racism by definition is : prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior.

    The only people who fit the criteria to be racist are white people!
    I don't think my race is better than any other. I'm inferior. I'm a minority.
    You do realise what you're doing here is being racists against your own race! It's impressive and bemusing in equal measure.

    Some people don’t seem able to differentiate between racism (an individual belief) and systematic/institutionalised racism (the policies and practices by a group, which result in the exclusion or promotion of designated groups.).

    One is a personal belief that you can’t possibly know just by looking at someone’s skin, the other is the way society, companies, and government may be set to disadvantage minorities, which you can’t blame on one person.

    It’s understandable to be mad at the past and mad at the system, but ignorant to cry racist at everyone with different skin to yours who disagrees with you.

    Abusive or name calling behaviours are not only just generally rude, but also go against the TSR community rules ("Don’t insult people, don’t patronise or belittle them, and don’t make personal attacks."). Please report anything you think falls into that category so the mods can take a look.

    Doesn't matter if you say bunnies are ugly (which should totally be illegal btw, but it isn't currently so whatever). Mean comments are not cool. :spank:

    I'm wondering, does someone have a summary of what claims/evidence erratic_dues has made to try and prove her intelligence. I've seen the claims about the Musk stuff and her predicted grades, but I get the feeling there's bits I've missed. Is she trolling in another thread posting this stuff as well?

    No one said the whole black race, you're the only one making the generalizations here...

    But has every citizen of every European country racially discriminated against an ethnic minority? I presume not.

    How would you know? You're just assuming what a white person would think, portraying them negatively because of your victim complex of thinking that every white person thinks they're superior to you due to race, which is very ignorant and untrue. And isn't that a positive thing, to have an initiative to help people in need? The majority of white countries are ACs, so of course there will most probably be a lot of white workers doing voluntary aid, but race is irrelevant in this issue, wealth however, is a relevant factor. ACs are wealthy, so won't it be natural and courteous that the rich are giving to the poor?

    You can tag who you like, you're clearly being racist, and therefore clearly being a troll. The moronic bit is admittedly up for debate, but if you think the grades/claims you've posted mean you approach the intelligence of some of the people here then I would have said there was fairly good evidence for it.
    If you believe they are trolling or otherwise misusing the site please report them so the mods can look into it.
    No use getting into an argument over it here. If they're a troll they won't care and if they're not a troll it's just stressing you both out and making you more likely to say harsh things you might regret.

    So are you claiming that institutional racism doesn't exist and thrive today in England?
