I'll go with curtain #1. And as for political gains, get real, fella. I'm not a dem or repub, left or right. I trust and believe nothing that they spew. Oh, another thing, I don't need a lesson in what words mean, as I'm very skilled at writing, and understanding the english language. Thanks for being concerned, though.

If we're to have this conversation, let's be honest as to what we're talking about. Racism, as listed in #2, is racial prejudice or discrimination. I hope you notice it says nothing about one race holding superiority and power over another, simply the belief. Perhaps, if we want to understand people, we should look at what a word means and not what we think it means, in order to avoid confusion. The simple fact is that racism exists, in ALL races. Trying to use it for political gain is nonsense.
