Another topic about racism and the underlining issue, "those racists posting here". Some sure are obsessed over the whole "white guilt" thing.

Thanks for sharing the pyramid, Manic.  It's sad to see that several here are making their way up the pyramid as they demonstrate their indifference towards racist acts, minimize violence acts (the pipe bombs didn't "go off) and pass on their veiled racist comments and discriminatory comments.  Yet they remain in denial.


Yep, minimizing the pipe bomb incident because they didn't go off is a fine example.

 

"Veiled racist comments" reminds me of a subliminally racist organization years ago in the St. Louis area called 'Veiled Prophets'.

True. The media does it all the time.

 

Also, we need to see racism as impact,  not intent.  Doesn’t matter what we meant when we did something racist. What matters is the impact. “Oh, I only meant to close low-service DMVs. To balance the state budget. I didn’t mean it to be racist even though they were all located in predominately black counties. And even though that impacts who can get a qualifying ID for voter registration purposes. Oh, I didn’t MEAN that to be racist.”

 

 But it is.

No idea about how a discussion about racist terminologies and attitudes becomes race baiting?

Racism exists. The more light upon this issue, the better. 

And do we only acknowledge a white God, and does God only acknowledge white people? Certainly counters the thought that in the eyes of God, we are all God’s children...all!

Funny, but it didn't "bait" me Cent. Did it "bait" you?  Who else feels "baited"?  Why?

 

Obviously, most who use the term have no clue what the term means

 

Merriam Webster - for clarification - defines “race-baiting” as “the unfair use of statements about race to try to influence the actions or attitudes of a particular group of people.


 


You're correct Cent, and pointing out racist actions simply doesn't fall under that definition and never will. Being silent about racism will never make it go away, it will just get worse. Continually shining the light of truth on it shows that it is unacceptable. Everyone with the least bit of morals should stand up to it and 'just say no' !

 

AND ........ what I said is not "baiting".

I think the most polite way to call someone a racist is to simply say "Wow. You remind me of Donald Trump." And walk away.
