    Some people may be racist, other people are just straight up blind.

    The racism term gets tossed around to loosely.

    there are many people who are biased ... yes.

    I think way too many biased people get labeled racists which is not true.

    Racism is about hatred, intolerance, superiority, discrimination,

    If i don't like rap music am I racist or am i biased against rap music?

    If I don't like Sharia law am I racist or am I biased against sharia law?

    I think Ann Coulter is biased ... but she has that right as do we all.

    Racism is a form of bias. When you're biased based on race you're a racist.

    I'm skeptical that many people get labeled "racist" for reasons such as those you've given examples of.

    Of course she has the right to be biased. That doesn't mean it's right or that she shouldn't be called out on it when people think those biases are offensive.

    (Is she racist? I don't know. haven't paid enough attention to what she says, and don't know how much of it is being an entertainer and knowing what her audience wants to hear.)

    You expanded on what I said and i pretty much agree with what you added. Coulter does dance the fine line but what these people write ... is it really them or is it them playing to a base that earns them money.
    Your entertainer angle is very important to the debate.

    Earning money is no excuse or umbrella from being judged ... but I always wonder if these people are totally like this in the real world. I bet they're close but not always the same. I sometimes read them if it's through a link ... but to read any of these people everyday is more than I can stomach.

    I used to respect Beck a bit because he at least admitted to being an entertainer. I'm not sure he does that anymore, now that his franchise is worth serious money. He comes across as stupid on his show, but he may not be stupid enough to jeopardize his jackpot by admitting to being a character anymore.

    I somehow think it's worse if they're playing the base.

    Don't you think it's kind of a duty they have? If they truly believe what they're saying, that's one thing....but if they're using people's gullibility and ignorance to incite hate or fear, isn't that a bad thing and shouldn't they be more responsible?

    If people get power somehow (and media is power) they should use it wisely - and not just use it for personal gain.

    You make an excellent point ... it's a capitalist economy and the base is power is money. when you come right down to it you can't really say any of these people truly love their country because they love the money more.

    sometimes i go to infowars for kicks ... I cannot believe how they can put that stuff in the media and also say they love thir country. If they loved their country they would seek the truth instead of playing to the base. sometimes the truth will make the base happy but we all know sometimes it won't.

    mostly Arabs ... but they are a worldwide people in terms of race.

    But I don't think that's the answer you wanted.

    Jews aren't the race of Jewish either.

    communists are not the race of commies.

    We can make this list.

    So the race card is silly when it comes to muslims.

    I don't think so ... I think 9/11 and other events made some people prejudice to people that are of the Muslim religion. To tell the truth I am really not sure ... there are strong reactions out there to people of the Muslim faith. I'm not sure anymore if it's the people or the media sometimes.

    Ask harry -- he's the one who brought up "racism."

    But isn't that semantics?

    i had this joke going in my house when my older kids were younger ... and the joke was about the names the media gives people that stick. The shoe bomber, the unibomber, joe the plumber etc ...

    The media has really perpetuated the Muslim thing ... they have engrained it in people's minds. How many people in this country don't even know a Muslim, live near a Muslim, only know Muslim's from the media.

    the media loves semantics and they play them for all they're worth.

    I like this. There is bias, which most everybody of any race would tend to have but it's not bred out of malevolence, and then there is racist which is bred out of malevolence, hate and fear.
    Agreed.

    What Race Are Muslims
    I think it should be the liberal who answers that question they are the ones who immediately start blubbering "racism" whenever a Neo Con mentions that the Terrorists of the world that want America DEAD are 99% MUSLIM.

    Someone should ask lovely Whoopi "what race muslims are" she walked off the stage on the View slobbering her "racist bullsh!t" when O'Reilly pointed out a TRUE FACT in saying that the 9/11 savages were all Muslims.
