Racism is discrimination and prejudice towards people based on their race or ethnicity. Today, the use of the term "racism" does not easily fall under a single definition.[1]

 

There wasn't a thread like this at any point? what are you smoking

For a time some one says "thank you" to something, and brings a positive note, it is good.

QP, their response is just an effort to legitimize racist behaviour.

It is irrelevant whether it was racist or merely xenophobic.  Hateful bigotry it definitely was and it is a good thing to see it removed.

Sometimes prejudice is based on the truth tho! Not saying this case, but sometimes, just sometimes!

It could be, I don't know. In any case, a forum that has every race/religion/ethnic group is not the place for it. This forum is toxic enough without it.

Sometimes comments like these are attempts at a passive aggressive implication. Not saying this case, but sometimes, just sometimes...

Then you missed the polak thread.

Because it was clearly discrimination towards a certain group of people (ethnicity).

Polak just refers to a Polish male doesn't it? Is it not like calling an American a yank? Or a Brit a limey?

 

I've been called a limey, I don't find it offensive.

 

Either grow a thicker skin or stop using the internet.

It's not racismbut xenophobia. It's not the same and it won't be the same for a while.

Then you missed his point entirely.

 

Nationality is not ethnicity. You can have plenty ethnic groups in the same country, and they still share the same nationality.

 

So, in this case, racism is the wrong word/concept to use, because a nationality was being specifically targeted. In such cases, the word to use is xenophobia. Look it up. If you're expressing hate towards a black american because he's black, you're a racist, but if you do so because he's american then you're xenophobic.

Yeah we must sweep these issues under the carpet, pretend they dont exist and they will go away.
