    That's the "dictionary" definition. But scientifically, being racist means you hold down a race (ie: hating/killing blacks is not racist, but being an NBA owner and not have any black players on your team or any blacks in your front office, you are not giving them jobs, thus you are racist). I took a whole class about it, sounds weird, but it makes sense.

      I disagree with your teacher. (based off what you've said). Hating another person because of their particular race, is racism.
      I'd be interested to hear your teacher explain what he/she means.
      Not quite sure where science plays a role in all this either. It's just the definition of a word.

              It's not racist, it just gives blacks something else to cry about though. They always try and change things around. It gets real old.

                      Personally, I don't see it as that racist... but I guess I could see it being bad if it was the other way around, and they had a black guy beating up a white guy saying "Black is coming."

                      Meh.
                      i dont know yes or no but i know thats not legal because the kids like 15 yrs old
                      why do you have to be over 15 to be on a billboard.
                      ps why do you have your picture as your sig and avitar... its weird

                        If that is racist, then the commercial for the BET awards was racist. The only person not black was an annoying white guy that kept on asking damon wayans to do Homie the Clown. And on top of that, he gets stabbed in the end.

                        And since I brought up BET, why can't there be a WET? Think of the possibilities....they could make a show called Dreams and then you could refer to it as WET's Dreams

                            No. It is not racist, and those who do are the actual racists.

                              At first I said no because I didn't see the black guy in it. Now I seen him and Yes this is racist.
