you stated

race is

1. The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
2. Discrimination or prejudice based on race.

so am i racist if i believe that white people and black people have different abilities?

i.e: athletic ability:(williams sister's are kicking ass)...

your second DEFINTION for racism was discrimination

which according to my dictionary states:

1.Treatment or consideration based on class or category rather than individual merit; partiality or prejudice

you than said something about racism not being based on power well according to YOUR dictionary and MINE to "discriminate" you have to be in a certain POSITION (which gives you POWER over other individuals) in order for this act to administered

is it not power to turn someone down for a job because of discrimination?

if not, than what would you call it?

many black people aren't in the position to DO this..

you talk of self made definitions, but i see ALOT of self made applications on your part

so which definition for racism is correct or which are you speaking of exactly?
