No, it isn't. You don't need a whole group or race of people to have racism. Just one individual would do. They also don't actually have to think another race is inferior. It's entirely possible somebody could be racist out of jealousy due to thinking another race is superior to them.

Racism is just treating people worse due to their race. Just like sexism is treating people worse because of their sex.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Well, we're finally getting his tax returns at some point. Wonder if we'll get anything juicy and whether it'll be before the election or not.

You are correct, it does not need to be a group but just an individual. The thinking about is still pretty much the same.  The cause of the thinking really does not matter meaning the root cause can be just about anything even the individual secretly feeling inferior while using it as a basics to view others as such.

I highly doubt it.  The whole thing was just a stall tactic so that Trump and company could keep his tax return out of public view and used against him before reelection.  They will continue to delay until well past the election cycle but who knows, maybe things moved quicker than Trump and his administration wanted and this gives a pretty good opening. Personally, I do not believe it will reveal anything we already did not know but just confirm those items and still be something dismissed by Trump base as unimportant until its a Dem they are looking at that does the same thing.



Has anyone been paying attention to this Wayfair stuff, who doesn't think that it is incredibly stupid? I just can't with this shit...

For those who are unaware, Wayfair is being accused of participating in child sex trafficking because there are items on Wayfair which are vastly overpriced (ie. $12k for some cabinets or $10k for a pillow). There are some other pieces of equally terrible "evidence" but that is what started this.

That lawyer couple waving their guns around are a real piece of work. They're trying to sue the neighborhood association to gain ownership of the wall they illegally built putside the perimeter of their property, suing a neighbor to get a small bit of property up to a fenceline that's within the neighbor's property, and suing the neighborhood association again to obtain a patch of lawn across the street meant for their entire community...because they can, I guess.

In any case, the protestors never set foot on the McCloskeys' actual property, never threatened them nor damaged the neighborhood gate (from what can be seen from a protestor's recording), and did nothing to deserve weapons pointing in their direction. Isn't it like the first rule of gun safety you never aim it at someone unless you intend to shoot? And now the McCloskeys are claiming their lives are ruined...lol.

I'm scared and flabbergasted but I couldn't take my eyes off this train wreck.  I was really hoping this was all a staged satire but it wasn't. 



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

Obviously fake video spoken. No one in their right mind would say natty light beer (natural light) is one of best tasting beers ever. That would almost be like promoting keystone or Milwaukee's best. Anyone that says natty light is best tasting beer deserves to be shot.

I notice that people frequently mix up racism and systemic racism, often. Systemic racism is where a power structure exists that effectively builds in or sustains the racism. While racism is prejudice based on race. But basically, neither are good, but systemic racism is far more oppressive. And racism from an oppressed group against a majority group is barely important in itself.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

That's the spirit. We should just all hate each other then there would be no racism. We would all just be haters contending for the playa haters' ball top prize of number one hater.
