Hi JJ, you’re missing the trick here…
It’s about inherent superiority of race.
The ADL which has been fighting racism for over 100 years drills down deeper to make it clear:
“Racism is the belief that a particular race is superior or inferior to another, that a person’s social and moral traits are predetermined by his or her inborn biological characteristics.”
We are talking about the inherent superiority of a RACE (ie: based on race, which are always physical characteristics).
We are not talking about those that *favor* their own race (the home team), we are talking about the genetic code that makes our bodies, our brains.
Who in politics, for example, believes that whites are inherently superior to anyone? Supposedly half of all politicians are racist…. right?
But can you locate even one?
They USED to exist…
“A perfectly stupid race can never rise to a very high plane; the negro for instance, has been kept down as much by a lack of intellectual development as much as anything else.” Theodore Roosevelt
This is specifically racist.
“I don’t like Asians.” is not.
