African Americans called black or nigger. Black is a color/shade. Nigger is defined as filthy and unintelligent in dictionaries.
African Americans considered criminals, thugs, drug addicts, rapists, thieves, gangbangers, murders...

Caucasians called white, hillbilly, or redneck.. White is a color. Rednecks are not suppose to be considers gun otakus or hunters but union men. Hillbilly is just racists like nigger.
Caucasians being considered racist against any other race.

Mexicans/Spanish being considered drug addicts, murders. rapists, thieves, gangbangers...

Arabs being called terrorist.

Asians said to look all the same.

White guys who specifically only date Asian girls.

I'm not Asian in anyway, but dating someone solely because of their race is so disrespectful and rude. Objectification and racism in one.
Ugh weaboos -.-

People have the misconception that stereotyping = racism. Unless I specifically say something like "Koreans are the supreme master race, all of you other shitty races need to work for me" Or something that expresses how I think one race is superior to another, it's not racism. If i say "black people are fast" or "black people like to steal bicycles" that's not racism. That's stereotyping.


Racism is discriminating against someone or thinking negatively of someone because of their race. The example you provided was a racist stereotype. If you said "humans steal bicycles regardless of their race" it wouldn't be racist. When you're only talking about black people stealing, you're singling out a certain race as though only black people commit that crime.

Having certain preferences when it comes to choosing a mate is not racist. If these guys only dated Asian girls because they look down on girls of every other race, then it would be racist. If someone dated European girls because he's attracted to blonde/brown hair, would you call him racist?

The most common form of racism would probably fall in the category of micro-aggression. Mostly side comments, stereotypes, and interfering with one's ability to get a job. Stereotypes are racist because even though it might seem small, one stereotype that you choose to believe in can rub off on someone else and make you judge people before getting to know them. This is the most common form of racism, that and the blatant racism that one can find on the internet if they look. But yeah, racism is not just trying to come about to the genocide of a race any more, it is something smaller, but still harmful when the people in power hold those views.

I feel like everything is devolving into "if you aren't politically correct you are racist" or something on that line.



Saying "many crimes are committed by black and hispanic people" is not racist.

Seeing a group of black male teens/young adults walking around a corner wearing t-shirts and sagging pants is a perfectly good reason to get the hell out of there as fast as possible if you value your safety.

Here's some stats.

Midyear 2009 incarceration rates for inmates held in custody in prisons or jails differed by race and gender. Black males, with an incarceration rate of 4,749 inmates per 100,000 U.S. residents, were incarcerated at a rate more than six times higher than white males (708 inmates per 100,000 U.S. residents) and 2.6 times higher than Hispanic males (1,822 inmates per 100,000 U.S. residents). Black females (with an incarceration rate of 333 per 100,000) were more than two times as likely as Hispanic females (142 per 100,000) and over 3.6 times more likely than white females (91 per 100,000) to have been in prison or jail on June 30, 2009.


If you've gone to jail, you've done something pretty serious.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with saying "a majority of violent crime is committed by blacks". That is neither stereotyping nor racist. You are not branding an entire race under a generalization.

Other countries do describe people as black which isn't considered to be racist there.

The fact is Whites use more drugs, but blacks are imprisoned more for it. Logic like yours fail because their is inherent biased that make the original statistics.
