It definitely gives a poor depiction. Not racist, just heavily insensitive. Not sure how it got through the company all the way to a Bulletin Board...

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.

But midgets aren't really as prominent a minority as blacks, thus why it comes out now. Society more cares about color than height...

rac·ism

NOUN:

1. The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.

2. Discrimination or prejudice based on race.

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.

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.
