I'm not sure I understand exactly what everyne means by "racist". It depends on who's using the word it seems to me, and also upon their own opinions on the topic of "race".
I've never quite gotten my head around what US people mean by their various employments of the terms "liberal" or "conservative", they seem to vary widley depending on whether one thinks they're a good idea or not.

But I have absolutely no idea what a bloody "progressive elitist liberal" is. Apparently they have been spotted in cc though.
And remember what the poet said – “in booty there is loot, and in loot booty.” Or sump’n like that.

If you discriminate everyone regardless of race, are you a racist?

So Woodruff; your saying that Racist means "You're a retard."


You also would appear to be a retard.

Ironically this seems to make the most sense; I am starting to understand the mind of the progressive elitist liberal more and more. It's still a strange place.


If you believe me to be a "progressive elitist liberal", you're definitely not paying attention. Then again, reading comprehension does not appear to be your strong suit.

Don't mind him...he's just trying to string together three words that he considers to be insults.

If you would ask me, the new meaning of the word racist is basically someone "who disagrees with Obama's policy". Ok, would wants to challenge that? Or better, tell me what it really means!



bah you had an argument till you brought in obama... now you sound like a racist.


Racism is dead, till I see threads like this, then I realize I that there are still many insecure white men.

I believe Jewish is the only race that is also a religion. Noting the difference between being Jewish by birth and "converting" to the Jewish faith.

What does the word Jew really mean? A descendant of Judah? There are plenty of descendants of Judah who do not consider themselves to be part of Judaism in a religious sense maybe. Also, quite a number of Khazars converted to Judaism back in the day during crusade times in an attempt to avoid conflict with crusaders and Muslims possibly. Although, who is not a descendant of Judah at this point in time if Noah and Abraham were alive on earth at the same time and the flood did not even occur until Noah was 600 or so? Is there an uncircumcised man who would circumcise a son of his? You might be able to find some, but could you find one a couple hundred years ago? And how many circumcised people who do not consider themselves to be Jews are there on earth?
