I get what you say, i do not think its Racism myself, but in today's world, people make racism everything! The second you hate a Muslim, or a Jewish guy you become a racist, in an instant second, in reality the second you hate a Jewish guy for example (I personally dont have anything against Jewish people, and i like Israel lol) it is normally labeled as 'Antisemitism' but you hear that shit on TV ignorant people always say 'what a racist'....

Well people say "If you dont like Obama's healthcare plan, you are a racist".

That stuff pisses me off. Turning racism into a tool to scare people because they are so afraid to be labeled a racist in the politically correct climate of today.

The scripture of the New Testiment indicates being Racist is against God, anyone of any color or nationality, can accept the Christ.

[QUOTE=Dictionary;5189555] hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.

Yep, nothing about the bible in there.

To me, discrimination on any level is only natural, and even necessary. Let's say you aware walking down the street in a bad neighborhood like Spanish Harlem or some South Bronx shithole, and someone dressed like a rap star is walking towards you. Are you going to just say hello to him or are you going to take measures to make sure any valuables on your person are protected? If you're smart, you'll protect you're stuff. Hell, it doesn't even have to be in a bad neighborhood. Well, if you take measures to protect yourself, you're discriminating. You're using generalizations and stereotypes to make a decision about the person approaching you and about your personal security.

To me, Nemmerle said it perfectly:

Nemmerle;5170960Racial discrimination is only natural, indeed discrimination in general is just part of how humans are wired up to work - by equating that which is not equal, by seeing things on the level of generalities. If most of the black people you meet try to take a swing at you it's a bad idea for you to trust black people.

Unjustified racial discrimination on the other hand is when you take that and fix it against overwhelming evidence to the contrary. That's irrational, harmful both to others and yourself, and by those virtues 'bad.'
