It doesn't seem so.

It looks like nothing is racist anymore.


Except this is "anti-semitic":

“We must support an end of the occupation and seek to achieve a two-state solution. I believe firmly that the path to peace does not (lie) with a violent mean."

WTF is going on? confused2

the term "anti-semitism" has been rendered a meaningless distraction driven by politicians the media

And being against some of Israel’s policies isn’t anti-Semitic.

What about being a holocaust denier? Is that racist to discuss and debate the claims of the holocaust?

Being a Somali refugee, wearing a head covering, and criticizing poor American policies. That is pure racism right there.

I decided to pick out the next random thing on my TV, type it into Google and add "racist" to it. Just to test the theory that everything is racist.

So there was a commercial for Lion King. Starts today in theaters. So that's what I typed in. "Lion King racist."

Quote
introduces us to a society where the weak have learned to worship at the feet of the strong. As we watch the herbivores congregate to bow down before their newborn ruler, ‘The Lion King’ presents a seductive worldview in which absolute power goes unquestioned and the weak and the vulnerable are fundamentally inferior. In other words: ‘The Lion King’ offers us fascist ideology writ large, and there is no obvious way out for the remake. A variety of cute and cuddly creatures stand in for a deeply human way of organizing society. But mapping our own social hierarchies onto the pristine and ‘neutral’ animal kingdom makes these power dynamics seem natural, common-sense and even desirable. And by using predator-prey relationships to allegorize human power structures, the film almost inevitably incorporates a worldview in which the rulers’ power derives from their biological superiority.

Saying everything is racist is just a pathetic ploy for “the less fortunate” aka non whites to get their way when they otherwise can’t.

Welcome to 2019, where critically important words' meanings are fluid. "Racism" is defined as whatever a POC or white ally says it is at any given time.

Nice opinion piece.

What constitutes racism in your eyes? Is anything racist?

I asked a question that remains unanswered, what constitutes racism in your opinion?

No Wiki definitions.

Thanks.

No, not everything is racist.

Give us a real world example of racism, in your opinion.

Unless you think it's just a distraction invented by the politicians and the media?

Prejudging people by the color of their skin/ethnicity.

And Lion King.

And Betsy Ross.
