If racism is “institutionalized oppression against a race,” then how can I be a racist? One person oppressing a race is not “institutionalized.” Also, for your sake, let’s ignore the word “institutionalized” and just say that racism is when you oppress someone because of his race. Well how do I oppress anybody? Do I refuse to hire black people at my business? No. I don’t even own a business. I supported Herman Cain in the primaries. If I were racist, I’d have tried to oppress him BECAUSE he was black by trying to get him removed from the ballot.
Prejudice is when you judge someone before you know them. Prejudice, pre-judge. Seeing a metrosexual on the streets and assuming he’s gay is prejudice. It’s not bad to make that pre-judgment since, more likely than not, you’re going to be right. Hating a race (or preferring a race) is racist, not prejudice.
Now go lisp your pissiness to someone else, sister. I don’t want to talk to prejudiced heterophobes.
