    i am always interested in different opinons so, carolinajazz, you intrigue me.
    this is america, if someone wants to be a racialist, they have a right to be a racialist.
    how do you feel about the 3/5ths rule--gives blacks too much power, or just enough?

    Then it should be very easy for you to provide 3 quotes from scholars of racism that state that racism is purely action, completely independent of thought or opinion....
    Tell you what: when you show you have given this enough thought to accurately restate what I said, then I'll be happy to oblige. As it is, I would reject the categorization of racism you presented in that post.

    According to the US Civil Rights Commission, Racism is any action or attitude, conscious or unconscious, that subordinates an individual or group based on skin colour or race. It can be enacted individually or institutionally.
    I did not say the dictionary definition was in colflict with the definition as I provided it, I emphasized that is was not. Seriously, read before responding.

    Hoprefully, you will at some point show sufficeint understanding to realize this is completely compatible with my point that racism is facet of a culture, not an individual. In particular, you mihgt consider the difference between "X has racism" and "X enacted racism".

    You're really splitting hairs here, though. People are capable of having racist ideas, attitudes, beliefs and behaviors. Any person, or as I'm sure you'll point out, all people.

    Differentiating between a racist and racism is the same as differentiating between a Mormon and Mormonism.
    Since I don't use the phrase "X is a racist", your analogy fails, hard.

    Of course. The difference is the attempt that people make to rationalize the problem by creating an "othering" category of "racists". That allows such people to say "they are racists; I am not". Noting that racism is a description of a culture, not a person, empahsizes that it is the responsibility of every participant in the culture, and not just a few nut jobs that can be ignored.

    No I've just been doing somereading lately. If I have been misunderstanding, I'm open to correction. I do insist that someone has to understand what I wronte before they can correct it.
