BBS, the oxymoron part was refering to this.
Bigot might be more appropriate, but of course in applying the term a person most often proves themself one as well. Funny thing about those labels, attacking others for intolerance often reveals intolerance of your own if you go about it the wrong way.
And as for the defintion, once again, "Racism refers to various belief systems maintaining that the essential value of an individual person can be determined according to a perceived or ascribed racial category and that social discrimination by race is therefore justifiable"
Key word being social discrimination, and social discrimination meaning;
"The word discrimination comes from the Latin "discriminare", which means to "distinguish between". To discriminate socially is to make a distinction between people on the basis of class or category without regard to individual merit. Examples of social discrimination include racial, religious, sexual, sexual orientation
, disability, ethnic, height-related, and age-related discrimination. Whether a given example of discrimination is positive or negative is a subjective judgement (i.e., in the eye of the beholder)."
Now enough with the english lessons.
Hoooooold the phone here...Laktor using a rather comical (and generally true) generalization of **** is a hate crime? sh*t, if that's the case, then why isn't the ACLU all over rap music? Or Larry the Cable Guy? Or any other comedian/singer/other type of entertainment that toys with racial generalizations?
wtf are you talking about? Who said anything about Laktor?
"Actually I am, hate to admit it, but if a **** came up to me I'd sock him in the face.
You find that comical?
