I don’t think you realize that bullying most of times is assault.

I just think you’re in denial. Just because it happened to you doesn’t make it right or ok for it to happen to someone else. Being called names is a whole world of difference to what is racism.

I agree that bullying is not the same as racism (and I indicated as much). However, there are traits in common.

According to this paper (abstract linked below), there is a social dominance aspect of bullying. That is the bully displays (sometimes through false bravado) an assertion that they are of the better social class, and the person getting bullied is being bullied because of displaying traits of being in a social class seen by the bully as inferior and less desirable.

This aspect of bullying is in part similar to racism in that the feeling of racists is that certain races are inferior to their race, and thus because they belong to an inferior race (socially, intellectually, or whatever) they should be derided.

The similarities do end there, and no -- Racism is not Bullying per se.

Here is that bullying study abstract:
www.annualreviews.org...


I will say that most racists -- just like most bullies -- are insecure hateful people whose insecurity fuels fear over people who are not like them. I'd go as far as to say that I would not be surprised if young bullies grow up to be adult racists. It's hard to turn of the insecurity and fear of other people who are different from them.

What else is racism if not bullying someone because of their race????


Bully is just a very broad term and racism isn’t very narrow.

sure it is, racism has shifted to blacks against whites. The black race is way more racist towards the white race but because it's blacks doing it nobody says anything because some how in our society, racism is only racism when it's whites against blacks.

for example, look how many black comedians have a "white guy" voice and mock them, then look at how many white comedians have a "black guy" voice. None, couldnt find any. That's because if black people do it its ok, if white people do it, its offensive and racist. Black privilege is a thing.

Then why did you say it lol

I said this:


If anybody who saw that sign got a little laugh out of it, I'd say it's a step in the right direction.


You twisted my words and said this:


If any other racists out there got a kick out of this racist sign.. I would say that’s a step in the right direction..”


How old are you Joshua? Because you've just proven that you can't have a discussion about race. Way to make your fellow liberals proud!

this is why i roll my eyes at white peoples accusations of racism, here we have a person that feels that blacks are more racist because a comedian used a "white guy voice" if you told a victim of the holocaust or someone who was forced to drink out of separate water fountains that you would be laughed at. black comedians use a "white guy voice" minorities in star wars, black panther, white men can't jump.....oh the humanity.

Racism is racism no matter how big or small.

If you’re saying some racism is acceptable, that is pathetic.

You’re the one that is perpetuating racism instead of remedying it.

Disgusting

I always call this out. If you are human capable of emotions, then you can harbor racism and hatred. No one is exempt from it. It's identity politics and this while white guilt ideology that's feeding into it.

so tell me how using a white guy voice or minorities in star wars is racist? you guys are just as foolish as the people screaming cultural appropriation at every turn. i just don't like how loosely the word racism is used nowadays, getting pretty tired of it to be honest.

It's become a canard now. It's become watered down to a point where anyone "Brown" is being oppressed in this country according to them. The genuine civil rights movement has been hi jacked by SJWs. Yes, it has been turned against "White" people. Just see what going on in colleges.

The big strong guys won too much for the little scrawny types to be able to live. So the Darwin theory in motion, the bullies beating people to a pulp business inspired the scrawny ones to develop self defense that stopped brain bashing bullies. Their inventions also help the 95 lb female grandma in a pinch.
