I don't think everyone's a little racist, but rather everyones's a little prejudice. I think it's just an inherent human thing and isn't always necessarily a bad thing. When you first meet someone you know nothing about them and have only past experiences with similar people to go on. Like I said this may not be a bad thing, but some people take it too far attributing negative qualities to every person from X group because of one incident. I do it all the time and I know I shouldn't, but for the most part I try to treat everyone like an individual and not just a member of group X or whatever.

have i had the thought that all Asian people are brilliant and can excel in everything they do, just because they are Asian? Yes. Was I wrong? Of course. Do I go out and say to ever Asian-looking person I see, "Ugh you're so smart I wish I was Asian." No. Does that make me racist? idk.

Personally I make a ton of racist jokes. It's personally my sick sense of humor and the humor of many of my friends.
I wouldn't class myself as a racist though because I don't actually mean anything by what I say, I just enjoy the over exaggerated truth that are racist jokes.
Also thanks for reminding me of Avenue Q with your title there :p

I'm no racist but what I believe is that racist jokes are necessary. If everyone learns to make fun of each other and accept those flaws, we can love each other and link arms around the trees! But then you have those butthurt few who can't joke around or are too sensitive. Oh I'm white so I must like macaroni and cheese? I do. And it's fucking delicious lol. Humor connects everyone. I suppose it's how racism is used. Some people do believe they are the master race/better than everyone. That's untrue but it's also true that some people are better than others in certain things. That's life but it's not racism.

One problem is how we use racist\racism to cover everything. Instead of racist, bigot, prejudice, or preconceived notion. Words have definitions use the right one. Next problem is mistaking race for culture. Blacks from Africa and Philly don't act the same. Third is everyone's panties are in a wad.

I've made racist jokes about my own race and other races, but they are nothing more than jokes. I'm not so ignorant that I believe what is true for a part, is true for a whole. I once met a racist acquaintance who believed that many sports such as basketball and football are dominated on a professional level by African American individuals because he felt they spent less time in school studying, and more time playing sports. Needless to say I never spoke to him again.

Not everyone is racist. Yes, everyone has had certain opinions about certain races pounded into their heads by society, but I think whether someone is racist is based upon whether they treat a certain race worse. So, no, not everyone is racist.

I agree.

I think what people have been talking about is prejudice: jumping to a conclusion (positive or negative) about a person or situation by using generalized / preconceived notions developed through personal experiences or hearsay.

Racism, on the other hand, is the belief that one "race" is superior to another. So unless you believe in your very bones that you are racially superior to someone else and cannot tolerate the existence of other races, I don't think you're a racist.
