Racism in United States: Is it alive and well or is it not?
You're welcome Colleen, and Thank You for being YOU! :-) I like diversity! And I like learning new things because there is so much we have to learn from each other! What could be better than 'learning' and 'growing' with all the different people that we share the earth and our lives with? I can't think of many (especially when I am having fun!) :-)

Racism in United States: Is it alive and well or is it not?
Carlos, I want to make sure I got this straight. "Race" refers to our species, Homo sapiens sapiens, human beings. "Race" when attempted to be used to refer to "a division of mankind possessing traits that are transmissible by descent and sufficient to characterize it as a distinct human type" is bogus because science has proven otherwise. When discussing differences between members of the same race, human beings, that is ethnicity. What is known as "racism" is in fact discrimination against a particular ethnic group or ethnic groups. Proclaiming oneself as an "anti-racist" is not helpful at all to the issue for the reasons you mentioned.

"I think/feel there are many elements underlying racism." I wholeheartedly agree. I never said it was "simply a matter of a definition." Besides, when a definition is being discussed, never is it just a discussion about the definition. But by discussing the definitions it helps us to define the issue. "As Amy mentions, people who practice racism are generally not very kind, content people. Their underlying anger is projected toward others....it may be a gender, people with a particular sexual orientation, a particular [ethnicity], particular religion, etc." Yes.
