Race is a cultural and legal concept. It is entirely possible to be racist regardless of if the view or action has any scientific basis.

Hope that clears that up.

Race is a dividing concept to keep people from working together. Yes it is CULTURAL but its also NOT actually real. its a man made concept. And since its not scientific i refuse your definition being correct.

Race may not be 'real' but that doesn't mean people can't be racist. You can of course choose to believe otherwise if you wish. You can also believe in unicorns and Santa if it makes you happy.

Let's try this one more time. We will leave behind your belief that only descriptions that exist as a scientific definition have validity( That's absurd for a whole different set of reasons).

The point is that if someone discriminates based on race they are racist. It dosent matter if you think race exists or not, it matters that they do.

Let's put it another way. There is no scientific definition of religion but that doesn't mean there is no religious discrimination.

Racism be is a clearly understood word. Trying to argue that it does not exist based on its etymology is similar to arguing thst homophobia isn't real as they aren't literally scared of homosexualuty. It's a dishonest argument generally used by people who have just said something bigoted.

I know what you are saying no need to explain. but i among others have decided to move on and actually live in th e modern world instead of dragging our knuckles. Individuals know the truth,but the government and powers in control keep people from moving on.

Ill never admit you are right so you might as well give up.
