I think you're way off on this one.
no, i dont think that. i dont know where you would even get that.

i do however know that the greek was white, that whites are the majority in america and hold the most of the power.

dont blame me for offering up the subtle differences between racism and prejudice from a sociological perspective.

Once again, double-standards.

not to bog this down in semantics but in the study of sociology the term "racist" is usually used for those who are in power, the majority, those with the authority, or capabilities to opress, based on their prejudices.
for all others the term prejudiced is used.

so not only is racism a prejudiced mindframe, it includes the ability to empower one group, or keep another group down.
prejudice is just the mindframe. in this case the comments by the greek and kramer could be viewed as racist while irvins remarks are prejudiced.
You're right, I guess I don't get it.

So Tony,

From a sociological perspective... I guess you would then agree that the Bengals Suck, not because they have black players, nor white players, but because they are the Bengals, right?
