    The Nazis didn't murder 6m Jews on account of their religion. They did so due to an insane belief in racial inferiority.

    Anyway, it doesn't actually matter that much. The Jewish people are a race, and there are thousands if not millions of secular Jews worldwide. They include such famous names as Albert Einstein, Billy Joel, Stan Lee and Stephen Fry.

    So now I’m about to use your words against you. How could someone be racist to a Jewish people if it’s completely dependent on how you said “the color of your skin”? The definition provided within itself is a contradiction. Are they being racist because the Jewish person appears white? Wouldn’t that be racism against white people quote on quote? This just proves my point even further that racism in more complex than “omg they said something mean”. I’m not arguing Judaism isn’t a race anymore since I need to look further into the topic but due note how that’s confusing. Also I already brought the topic of going to the extremes of murder and hypothetical scenarios concerning that; show me an actual case and then we can have a conversation.

    You do know the link you provided called them an ethnicity right? If Judaism is a race than yes I agree that they can be included in the scope of people effected by racism since they aren’t the majority (as I said in earlier post). I just need you find better sources of “minorities being racist” (since that’s your end goal let’s be real) than be people claiming to be Jesus.

    Racism does not need to involve oppression. That's got a special name: systemic racism. And the way you phrase it "power or influence, past or present)" pretty much implies that if the positions have switched in the modern day, then the now-lower people are still the racists, because they used to have power over the other group.

    As for before, I should have said "color of their skin/origin of their ancestry", as that would then cover all ethnic Jews and cases like them.

    That’s in no way saying that. And if you read my earlier posts it has nothing to do with lower people outclassing the above people (because let’s face it you’re talking about black and white people based on your slave example).

    Your end goal is 'minorities can't ever be racist'.

    So antisemitism stops existing once you set foot in Israel, or any Jewish community? What geographic scope are you working with?

    This is getting tiring also notice they’re calling it “anti Semitic” not racist. Let’s discuss something more recent shall we? “

    “Nearly 16 percent of the 4,131 incidents in 2017 involving race or ethnicity were fueled by anti-black or African-American bias, increasing to 2,013 from 1,739 in 2016, the FBI said.

    Of the 6,370 known offenders in the report, 50.7 percent were white, while 21.3 percent were Black or African-American.”


    Wow you’re really going all out to try to prove that black people are these racist people out to kill aren’t you?

    Either way Jews aren’t oppressing black people and vice versa so what are you getting at here?

    Antisemitism is a form of racism.

    No dispute here whatsoever. Anti-black racism is by far the most prevalent and dangerous form of racism in the US.

    You're going really all out to disguise the fact that your core premise is shot to bits. The answer to your thread is 'Yes', as proven above.

    If you have to make up imaginary scenarios and go through pages after pages on Google looking for proof you experience racism; racism probably isn’t apart of your day to day life just saying

    Read the rest of it, 50% percent of hate crimes are committed by white people. So your dated study is irrelevant when in current year it’s still proven white people are committing most of the hate crimes. You’ve done nothing dispute my claim expect bring Jews into this (people who aren’t the oppressors) and bring up on crazy black guy.

    Cometstarlight What do I do now?

    Yes, 50% of hate crimes are committed by white people. Doesn't negate other acts of racism committed by non whites.

    I haven't been to this board in ages. I was worried that I missed out on a lot of topics, but I didn't. I actually made this very same topic a few years ago, but I can't find it anywhere. Ironically enough, that topic also ended with someone confused if Judaism was a race (it is).

    TC: Is my dad racist if he thinks Chinese people are cheap or that Vietnamese people are unclean. He also doesn't like Pakistani people.

    Also, the animated gifs in your signature are annoying, especially the third one where it shows the girl and then zooms into her lover's eye.

    Yes. Anyone can be racist. My dad can be racist towards Chinese people who keep calling him constantly for very stupid reasons when he asks them nicely not to do so and when they refuse to take care of their cars and expecting us to fix said cars when they break down and do it right away. The irony is that we are technically Chinese. Racism doesn’t have to be full scaled but rather limited to certain stereotypes. My dad is fine most of the time but he does look down on AA that insist on wearing baggy clothes and listening to hardcore rap music while not having any drive to improve their own lives and not being very respectful. I kind of see where my dad is coming from with that. But he also has customers who are AA and have been coming to us for years and show him respect. He just thinks that people need to dress decently and not look like a mess and be respectful towards people.

    Considering this thread went as well as the past half dozen times we’ve had it, I’d think this is a good enough stopping point as we watch people misunderstand things like the difference between racism and bigotry.
