I agree with the bullet points you have, but so what? Those few arrows don't DEFINE racism.

racism: "(1)The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability

(2)and that a particular race is superior to others. "

---------------
I mean, not allowing others into this country becuase they are "inferior" is easily parralled to Nazi Germany and its rampant nationalism. Now, I'm not calling you a Nazi, but still, you believe that race accounts for differences in human character and ability. That makes you racist.

You also seem to believe that because of that, certain people shouldn't be allowed into a country, that makes you a nationalist.

Legal or illegal doesn't seem to mater to me on a contextual basis, because people are people no matter what.

Maybe you're only racist, it's hard to tell.

An entire industry of politically-correct-speak has developed among many minority groups whereby ANY comment by ANY member of white society about visible minorities is immiediately viewed as racism.

After all, only white people can be racist. Moreover, all whites are racist, aren't we?  Yeah sure




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

An entire industry? I must have missed that; I thought there were just a few bigots who get too much media coverage in return for saying outrageous things. Can you point out this entire industry to us? Where is it?
