By definition, a racist is one who espouses (via dictionary.com) “a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule others.”

If I were to believe that my being white with balding graying brown hair and brown eyes was superior to any other person with different characteristics, then I would admit to being a racist. If I thought that a black or brown person truly believed that they were a superior race, I would have no problem calling them a racist.

So, while wrapping themselves in a flag and calling themselves a “patriot”, the new white racist calls every non-white person a racist so they don’t look like one? When they do this, aren’t they just using the American flag to hide an underlying feeling? Is this the same thing the Klan did when they hid their identity?

Let me get this right: The C in NAACP meaning “colored” means they are a racist organization?

This organization claims among their victories:

  • Health care as a civil right
  • Hate Crimes Enforcement
  • “Protecting” the working poor
  • Combating employment discrimination
  • Curbing predatory lending

Where in those victories and other information they are public about indicates where they think that non-white people are a superior race? I think it’s disgusting to even suggest it.

Since I have personally made such a claim I will justify it to you.

While you were researching your definition of Racism, you seeming overlooked the other definition. "•discriminatory or abusive behavior towards members of another race"

So yes... National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is in fact Racist by definition. For they advocate for a race of people and not People in general. Just as I am sure the KKK calls for the Advancement of White People.

My favorite example in the highest reaches of Government is the Congressional Black Caucus, The Caucus that a couple years ago denied a white congressman who represented 80% black district membership based solely upon his skin color. THAT is discrimination.

How many white students get scholarships from the United Negro College Fund (UNCF).

Frankly they have no right to proclaim the Tea Party Racist, especially without proof.

In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
