Interesting : So you feel that discrimination is acceptable against people whom you dislike . You are not anti racist/ predujice / discrimination as a whole , you just disagree with it when it happens to people whom you like, but you participate in it when its against people whom you dislike .
You are the same as everyone else who discriminates .
You have no qualms about abusing people based on their social standing , although its safe to say that if any "privileged wanker" would ever criticise a person of less standing , you would label them as being prejudiced .
You feel that its acceptable to abuse White , middle aged , heterosexual males.............which makes you racist, ageist and hetrophobic and classist.......as well as being a hypocrite .

Not to throw cold water on this wonderful circle-jerk about race and racism, I'd like to inject a little science into the discussion. The rest is just opinion, IMO, and an opportunity to pontificate about who they are superior to.

This is one article, but there are links to other sources to this rather old, well established fact.
Quote:
Negroid, Mongoloid and Caucasoid. These are the three races, right? Not so, according to science. While the American concept of race took off in the late 1600s and persists even today, researchers now argue that there’s no scientific basis for race. So, what exactly is race, and what are its origins?
snip
There was really no such thing as race then,” explained anthropologist Audrey Smedley, author of Race in North America: Origins of a Worldview, in a 2003 PBS interview. “Although ‘race’ was used as a categorizing term in the English language, like ‘type’ or ‘sort’ or ‘kind, it did not refer to human beings as groups.”
snip
In the 1800s, Dr. Samuel Morton argued that physical differences between races could be measured, most notably in brain size. Morton’s successor in this field, Louis Agassiz, began “arguing that blacks are not only inferior but they’re a separate species altogether,” Smedley said.
Thanks to scientific advances, we can now say definitively that individuals such as Morton and Aggasiz are wrong. Race is fluid and thus difficult to pinpoint scientifically. “Race is a concept of human minds, not of nature,” Relethford writes.
Unfortunately, this view hasn’t completely caught on outside of scientific circles.

I think all normal people inherently think that their race is the best race.

That is probably a carryover from the instinctual characteristic that helped with survival back in the olden days when different tribes were automatically enemies that killed off the men and boys, and took the women as sex slaves and workers (provided they were pretty).

(On the flip side, I would hate to be a person, who really felt that their race was inferior - talk about low self-esteem).

Just my opinion tough.

I think you'll find it's racists who inherently think that their race is the best race.

Normal people know there are good and bad, big and small, weak and strong, intelligent and thick all over the world, and a difference in skin colour or percieved race or ethnic group, does not make one person better than another.

Normal people, what are they. Peopled raised from birth to believe in voodoo and human sacrifices, Cannibals and head hunters from PNG, maybe Palestinian kids raise from birth to hate Jews, or Muslims raised to hate all that don't follow their form of true Islam, perhaps the mass of Indians that follow the caste system.
Yep normal people, or could it be that normal to you is white middle class. Jim

The forum was about race, not individual variation within race.

Do you wish you had been born of a different race?

I see anthropology sits just above Buddhism on the long list of things you know fuck all about.
Actually my university degree is in Computer Science with a minor in Electronic Engineering. However, I do read a lot of books on various topics including anthropology.

Do you have a university degree? If so, is it in Comparative Religion or Anthropology?

Didn't think so.

He has a degree in literature, his major was one line comebacks about things I know nothing of.

The fact that a scientific definition of race has never been established here--let alone an agreed upon TD definition of race--your question...this whole thread, in fact, is about whatever fantasy you grew up with about the subject, about your own race or anybody elses.

Why don't you argue about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin? It makes about as much sense.

Nice one mate..and without using the word "Racism"

Racism is an overused catch all ......often bandied about as a derision by "reformed smoker" type nations and individuals. Gross hypocrisy....

Am I a racist?..By current definitions obviously yes .

Remember the old saw..."Foreigners may be nice people but I don't want 'em living next door or marrying my daughter"

Everybody knows Canadians are boring, Americans loudmouths, Brits whiners, Aussies uncouth, Jews poor downtrodden chosen, Arabs rich rag heads, Scots cheap, Irish/Poles dumb, Italians,Russians, Lebs are............ ..yadda yadda,yadda

And yet, this individual insight is not cherish by the respective populations.
I'd say that the learning curve is a bit suspect.

Actually my university degree is in Computer Science with a minor in Electronic Engineering. However, I do read a lot of books on various topics including anthropology.
So presumably you think (correctly - thereby proving the old adage about even stopped clocks occasionally telling the right time) that your degree doesn't wholly determine what you know and don't know. And in that case, only a fucking idiot would then immediately ask

Do you have a university degree? If so, is it in Comparative Religion or Anthropology?

That is probably a carryover from the instinctual characteristic that helped with survival back in the olden days when different tribes were automatically enemies that killed off the men and boys, and took the women as sex slaves and workers (provided they were pretty).
Is in 'the olden days' standard usage in these books? Do they have exciting copper-plate engravings of fearsome negroid creatures abducting suspiciously European-looking maidens? How wonderful.
