Dictionary definitions are hardly the minimum needed to claim knowledge on a topic, specially such a complex topic like racism.
Explain to me what part of "discrimination based on race" is complex. No really.
You've literally been ignoring everything people here have said to you haven't you? They've told you we consider racism more complex than a dictionary definition. You're gonna have a bad time here if you keep ignoring our arguments and putting your fingers in your ears.
I think I got it now, you and a bunch of others decided not to follow the dictionary definition for "racism" and to follow instead the dictionary definition of "selective racism", but for the word "racism". Understood...
Nice strawman there, but no one is talking about the dictionary but you.
Well hey feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but that's how I see it. Sorry I'm the only one in the club who doesn't want to arbitrarily define terms whenever I please.
Yeah, that's the problem, you aren't open to correction. Your immediate reaction to us was defensive, not curious. You didn't ask us how we came to that conclusion, you just reacted.
I see your game and I'm not playing it.
you ever consider that maybe language has certain uses not catalogued by the dictionary
ever think that maybe using a word a certain way in one ideological context doesn't negate its uses in other contexts
