quote:Racism, as defined by Sanchez, is about power and money, and people are not racist if they simply dislike you.
Okay. No problem here.
quote:The definition of racism, Sanchez writes in her opinions article, is using a race or ethnicity-based belief to hurt someone economically.
Okay. I got a problem with this. If I banish white folks to the back of the bus; or refuse to sale them a hamburger; or deny them admission to the college of their choice of college, even though they meet the qualifications; or withhold resources for pre-school education, but only in rural areas, or depict them exclusively as criminals or servants in the press and on primetime TV, all because they are white, have I hurt them economically? Have I exhibited racism.
"Mary Sanchez" of Miami. What do you bet that she is 3rd generation white Cuban? And, her great-grandparents would have, and maybe her grandparents, referred to her as Maria.
