Well I guess I'll accept my defeat then. I apologize for any conflict I have caused.
What defeat? I think you're right.
well. not all definitions are final


here i have a little definition of racism from the Royal Spanish Academy
Exacerbación del sentido racial de un grupo étnico, especialmente cuando convive con otro u otros.

in english: to cause racial awareness in an ethnic group. specially when coexisting with each other

I don't think that's racist, pointing out somebody has ginger hair(ie different) doesn't matter. Being different doesn't matter. It only matters when its intended to offend or something.

i think it has been stated that the topic ended. and you cant really bash on the royal spanish academy definition of the word. since it is the one that dictates the definitions in spanish, how to write, and what words are taken out and put in in the language

So because you think the topic has ended my opinion means nothing?

This is a discussion board is it not? I think that Spanish definition is wrong or outdated, or as pow said: "We are too afraid of offending the other ethnicity so we immediately jump to conclusions and defend them even when there is nothing to defend them against."
There's nothing wrong with being different to each other and nothing wrong with identifying that.

Strange statement. You should know more than half the world population can't speak or understand english at all.

No thread locking in debates.

I don't get your question though. I think in most, if not all coutries, the biggest part of the population is still the families who've lived there for several generations.

I'm talking about minorities. They're the ones who suffer through racism the worst, most of it is culture discrimination, which is even worse and I think should be more of a focus then mere color of skin.

agreed. racism can be caused by sterotypes in culture and how people look. and its a lot worse since it shows ignorance in people

What? A view can be outdated no matter when it is written. My grandad said yesterday something about cars that was so out of date! It doesn't make it right because he said it recently.

What has language got to do with anything? If something is wrong in English I would say the same thing - I think it's wrong.

Just when walking across the street, seeing somebody taking an extra sidestep when passing you, giving you a disgusted look or anything like that, can ruin someones day.
That's what minorities go through. No wonder they have their own "notorious" districts. That's the worst kind of racism. It changes the life of so many people at once.

But people would do that with a criminal too, it's not racist exclusive.

Only 100-1000 people would know you're a criminal.

And how many people do YOU know that would cross the road if a black man came the other way? I don't know one! I do however know quite a few that would be disgusted with a criminal, a drug user, a pedo etc etc.

Probably my whole town...
You gotta know more than 60% of all crimes here are are committed by immigrants, when they're about 5% of the population.

But that's because of crimes, not because of their skin colour. If there were no crimes would people still cross the road for a black man?

There'll always be crime and it's getting worse every year.
They've given their skin colour a stereotype. People who don't believe it's that bad might wander into dangerous areas like Schaarbeek coming back with lighter pockets and maybe some free bruises, if they come back at all.

i agree with negazari, stereotypes do create racism. ive mentioned the same thing earlier about crossing the street when seeing a black person. i dont think you would do it when you see a white person. so stereotypes can create racism. and that is basically what racism is today. not really about the skin color, but what skin color represents in stereotipical cultures

You all live in bad places then, with a lot of ignorant people.
Hull is probably the worst city in England, maybe only Glasgow is worse in the entire UK, and we have no racism.
