Okay. No problem here. 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?

I only have one problem with this. By my understanding, racism is simply a specific form of prejudice. At its core, its no different than classism or sexism. The question is "What is the bias?" not "Is there a bias?" For a person to say they are not racist, they are saying that they are not prejudice, that they do not pre-judge. But, as she said, we all do that. Prejudice is one of the ways we quantify our suroundings with the small amount of information given in a short amount of time. I...

Just like "Samuel Alito" probably originally had some more Italian-sounding name, and he probably became an arch-conservative to appeal to the Anglo-Saxxon crowd so they would forget about his "Italian-ness". Alot of non-Anglo-Saxxon Whites are more outwardly and openly racist (as well as status-quo protecting) to impress their Anglo peers and "get in good" with them.

No, that's the dangerous line of unthinking... I don't know what kind of definition you're using but it's one hellafied one. And the semantics of RACISM vs. DISCRIMINATION is ridiculous. Saying "Everyone Discriminates" by equivocating the meaning of the word would be more plausible. Now, how is it that you maintain that "Everyone Is Racist"? Everyone subscribes to or practices #1? What about #2? How do you determine either? FYI, this is the working definition/distinction established in the...

An Occupied Country It has become clear, very quickly, that Iraq is not a liberated country, but an occupied country. We became familiar with the term "occupied country" during World War II.

It was the Nazis, the Soviets, who occupied other countries. Now we are the occupiers. True, we liberated Iraq from Saddam Hussein, but not from us. Just as...
