keep away from the dictionary when attempting to define racism. as a well-known revolutionary once said, "get 10 black people together, regardless of educational background, and ask them what racism is and means. and of the 10, nine will not know the definition of racism." this was said in 1967. that same person said as time went on, we will "point the finger at everything wrong as racism." it appears he was right. no black person should EVER use the dictionary as a reference for the definition of racism. it's much too complicated. just look around you, black people, look at your life experiences and those of others you know and you'll come closer to defining racism than the dictionary ever will. it's that simple. and that's just the beginning. you have to do more, but you have to at the very least, start there to arrive at the COMPLETE definition of racism.
