Racist.

A word that has taken a life of its own. You just are now. No need for facts, quotes or proof, you are a racist, accept it!



But does this word have any meaning anymore? Personally I think not, and it’s the politically correct and the schizophrenic left that has diluted this word to the point of facing extinction.
Firstly the requirements for being a racist are getting out of control;

• White
• Male

Long gone are the days where the only racists were swastika wearing, skin heads who would kill someone because of their skin
Colour. Nowadays everyone falls within these parameters according to the SJW cultists.

Secondly, so called “privileged” individuals can’t be racially abused?

Now, writing this I wanted to fully understand the word itself I.E its origin, and meaning at the time of origin. It brings up quite an interesting story;
“The Oxford English Dictionary's first recorded utterance of the word racism was by a man named Richard Henry Pratt in 1902. Pratt was railing against the evils of racial segregation.

Segregating any class or race of people apart from the rest of the people kills the progress of the segregated people or makes their growth very slow. Association of races and classes is necessary to destroy racism and class-ism.”

This man was no angel; he set up “schools” to forcefully and brutally “Christianize” native Indians. He believed this was the quickest and most efficient way to destroy their culture.

Since then the word has gathered more power!

It has led to some amazing feats, such as;

Revloutions

Black Rights

voting rights

Voting rights

But now the word and its connotations are disturbing

False Accusations

Straight up crazyness

We as the people of earth need power in situations where real, dangerous discrimination should be eradicated. Actual discrimination against anyone should be dealt with! I hate real racism, we all hate racism!

So this is my message to the left, begin to use it wisely!

The more you use it to describe EVERYONE the more it loses its effect. For example:

This thread was made claiming Donald Trump racist, yet gave not one quote, reason or fact to back up his claim.

So it the word "Racist" depleted?

could you not just have wrote this reply in my thread???

Yes Trump is a Racist.

A lamp post could tell you he is a Racist but his supporters seem to find it rather confusing.

Examples....



“Who the f knows? I mean, really, who knows how much the Japs will pay for Manhattan property these days?” Trump said referring to Japanese people during a January 1989 Time magazine profile.





If you look at his wife, she was standing there. She had nothing to say. She probably, maybe she wasn’t allowed to have anything to say. You tell me,” Trump said in response to Khizr Kahn, the father of fallen Muslim Army Captain Humayun Khan, after his Democratic National Convention speech in July.





When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best. They’re not sending you, they’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists… And some, I assume, are good people,” Trump said while announcing his campaign in June 2016.

The term nowadays is used as a weapon, not a statement of facts. But most of the time it is used is a swing and a miss.

I did give you a reply. But this was a rant at your overuse, dilution of the word!

Okay so EDIT since weve been given examples




“Who the f knows? I mean, really, who knows how much the Japs will pay for Manhattan property these days?” Trump said referring to Japanese people during a January 1989 Time magazine profile.


Japs, okay slightly politically incorrect I agree, but racist? absolutely not.

Next one;




If you look at his wife, she was standing there. She had nothing to say. She probably, maybe she wasn’t allowed to have anything to say. You tell me,” Trump said in response to Khizr Kahn, the father of fallen Muslim Army Captain Humayun Khan, after his Democratic National Convention speech in July.





Rule: Women are permitted to speak to non-Mahram men if the following conditions are met: The speaking is not done with the intention of lust and seeking (sexual) pleasure. The woman does not make her voice soft and attractive.


This is straight from Muslim Ethics

So is Donald Trump wrong for giving a concered factual point?

The worry is, here in the UK we have had members of parliament openly state trumps a racist. When the uninformed people view this they will believe it so!

Yet now one! not one person has given me or the people undeniable proof of this "Racism"

Without knowing the inner-thoughts of Donald Trump, no one knows he is a racist unless he were to admit it. They are reaching, and likely projecting their own racism on him.

Under the legal UK definition of racism it is undeniable he is racist.


According to the CPS



A racial group means a group of persons defined by reference to race, colour, nationality (including citizenship) or ethnic or national origins


So when trump says you cannot come into my country only because of your nationality he is being racist under UK law.

“When Donald and Ivana came to the casino, the bosses would order all the black people off the floor,” Kip Brown, a former employee at Trump’s Castle, told the New Yorker for a September article. “It was the eighties, I was a teen-ager, but I remember it: they put us all in the back.”




Trump disparaged his black casino employees as “lazy” in vividly bigoted terms, according to a 1991 book by John O’Donnell, a former president of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino.




“And isn’t it funny. I’ve got black accountants at Trump Castle and Trump Plaza. Black guys counting my money! I hate it,” O’Donnell recalled Trump saying. “The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day.”

“I think the guy is lazy,” Trump said of a black employee, according to O’Donnell. “And it’s probably not his fault because laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that. It’s not anything they can control.”

Let me try to give you an example that you can pick over. Man against woman is sexist not racist. But by the by.
Now I believe that men and women are equal, Women want equality. So we are equal, no sexism.
Now the scenario. The woman at the start of the video offends me greatly, she insults me, that could be assumed as reverse sexism. But now comes the crunch. I am that offended I punch her on the nose and make it bleed. Now you tell me what she will shout. Come on. Come on.
I'll tell you. She'll scream from the highest roof top that a man has hit her, bullied her. Now THAT'S sexism, as well as violence. They want equality and non racism on their terms only.

First of all.. that Morgan Freeman clip was great. What an articulate and intelligent man!

However, I would like to ask you.. what kind of proof exactly are you looking for? How does one prove beyond a doubt that a person harbors distaste, disrespect, dislike of an entire swath of the population?

Would, for example, being sued for the Justice Department for not accepting a certain race as tenants be considered racist or do you need to see him actually lynching someone on video or what?

Yes, the term racist is being thrown around indiscriminantly by some ignorant people but that does not mean that it doesn't exist. Also, if a person wants to think (or say) racist things, that is his/her business but when it starts to affect one's business practices etc well then we have a problem.

The term is most certainly a weapon in the arsenal of identity politics.

It can be likened to a weapon of mass destruction and the user cares not for the collateral damage it inflicts.

Nothing here is even remotely racist. Maybe the jap thing, but that has nothing to do with race. That's a nationality.

So no actual proof, just claims from people with no evidence? I remember the time you said, "black people are beneath me". Does everyone remember when dreamingawake said that? I sure do!

I don't see how it's racist. Can you explain? Do you think "red neck" is racist? Did you think it was racist when Obama claimed the "typical" white person is racist?
