Re: Pulling the "race card" card
I'm not the one arguing that if someone who was Indian walked into that store, that they were instantly not going to be hired (you admitted as much) and that the reason is racial. Yet, somehow, that's not racist.
I'm also not the knee who has tried to make the argument one based on semantics to try change racism to be a belief system or to argue away racist actions as only being racist if one can know with certainty the reason for the racist action.

I'm not sure if I'm wrong or not. But I am certain your arguments are asinine.

RE: Pulling the "race card" card
Are you being so obviously stupid on this TBD because of some white guilt thing?

You clearly do not understand what the term "racist" means because if you did then you wouldn't throw it around so flippantly.
"Racist" is a hate term, you can hire a white person over an Indian for reasons other then hate towards Indians.
But you seem to not be able to comprehend this simple concept.

I see it all the time, especially Black people doing it. They see something between two different races and instantly profile it as racist without acquiring all the facts. That's what you are doing TBD, you just see the action but bother not to look at the reason for said action.

I wonder how this conversation would have played out if it was a minority "being racist" towards a majority? Consider

The only asinine thing here TBD, is you.
The same actions can have different reasons.

No, it is you that doesn't seem to know what racism is.

Nope, still doesn't fulfill the requirments for being considered "racist".


Prejudice

1.
an unfavorable opinion or feeling formed beforehand or without knowledge, thought, or reason.
2.
any preconceived opinion or feeling, either favorable or unfavorable.


It is discrimination, but discrimination is not inherently racist.

I am genuinely surprised by how willfully ignorant you are being right now.

Son, calm down.
Racial prejudice is just another word for racism.

Him hiring white's over Indians is not racial prejudice unless his reasons are racist.
Which they are not (if he hires because it's what his customers want).

Likewise.

It is an act of racial prejudice. Whether or not he actually believes it is irrelevant. It is racist.

RE: Pulling the "race card" card
Nope, actions in themselves are not inherently racist unless the reason behind them is racist.
Racist is a hate term, he is not being hateful towards Indians, thus it's not racist.
