You don't have to be white to be a racist.
Or is that racist to say?
But if it's racist to say, then you don't have to be white to be racist.
Unless you're white.
Now I'm confused.
Why Do They Exist?
Black magazines exist because many mainstream magazines do not discuss issues that are important to African Americans.
Mainstream magazines rarely feature pictures of African Americans - something very important to any minority group.
Many of the magazines were created in a time when discrimination and racism in the United States was prevalent.

I'm anti-American because I think legal immigration takes too long and costs too much to the people who need it most because of our foreign policies.
As a LEGAL immigrant this argument is so infuriating. Hurr durr durr; it's sooo hard to immigrate legally so let's discard our immigration laws and open our borders. It's hard to immigrate to America because it's one of the most highly sought out places in the world to live; there are so many people trying to come here. We cannot let them all in at once.
If you're referencing Syrians and Iraqis who are being displaced by turmoil in the region, ask yourself why their neighboring countries aren't opening their borders to refugees. Why should we, a country half-way across the world, accept them?
And please drop the "justiciar of racism and bigotry" act. I've seen much more violence and intolerance from the zealous left, who apparently have a meltdown when confronted with an opposing opinion, than the right. This election cycle has been very eye opening. To think I identified as a leftist prior to seeing a bunch of ignorant assclowns shut down free speech because they don't agree with what's being said. Safe spaces, triggers, and micro-aggressions. People flipping a f***ing s*** over nothing. Give me a break. You're just contemporary brown shirts. You think you're justified in your heinous actions because you clumsily champion a "do-no-wrong" cause like racism or sexism.
Real racism is pigeon holing blacks into a single demographic and calling them Uncle Toms and House N*****s if they break from your biased perceptions. Real sexism is the # you see in other countries where women are considered second class citizens and actually have no rights. You want to talk about those countries? Many of them are Islamic s***holes. Yes, Islamic s***holes.
In case you can't see the blatant hypocrisy, Islam is not compatible with progressivism, let alone western culture. Women are stoned to death for adultery, under which rape is categorized (because there is no difference between consensual sex and rape since women are subhuman and there to serve men). Homosexuals are thrown from buildings or jailed.
And while not all Muslims are terrorists, the vast majority of terrorism in the last 2 decades has been carried out by Muslims, namely Wahhabi Islam, though there has been some Shiite terrorism as well. There is a cause for suspicion there; the fears of the American people are quite justified.
Yet the liberal self-righteous attitude is to say that any suspicion of Muslims is Islamophobia. Any verbal criticism or insult against a woman is misogyny, even if it's a criticism of her character or behavior. It's a wave of anti-intellectual, feel good naivety paired with an iron fist. It's absurd.
Live and let live; you aren't going to rid the world of bigotry by being a bigot.

I'm racist because I think the best way to defeat racism is to deny the concept of race and stop giving it strength by acknowledging the concept as worthy of anything but scorn and ridicule.

Anytime you disagree with a liberal, you are a racist. It's like SJW never had parents to read them, "The Boy Who Cried Wolf". Below are three examples of why I am racist, please add to the list
I am racist because I don't think colleges should have different housing for different races
I am also racist because I think that a college should be able to name a building after a former president of that school: Clyde A. Lynch or for that matter a building can be named Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
I am also racist because I think Yoga is for anyone whom wants to do it
