    The only reason we think racism exists in words is because we made it exist by subjectiveness .

    Let's make it clear to the world ,

    If somebody calls you black , white ,yellow or whatever , because you look black , white or whatever , then thats fact not racism .
    I would agree, but the law wouldn't. If I were to call a person a black *******, that would be considered racism. However, if I referred to him as a black person, that wouldn't be racist. So surely the term should be considered abusive, and not racist. Unfortunately our system and culture don't work like that.
    Keep Britain British, whoops, it's too late

    Agree. Also, what's the difference between calling someone a black b*****d and a fat b*****d? Both are equally insulting yet only one would be likely to get you into serious trouble.

    Don't get me wrong, I hate racism, but proper racism, not snowflake stuff.
    True focus lies somewhere between rage and serenity
