So by this I'm to assume that only the socially and economically dominant race can be racist? Come on clone......so you're saying that minorities can't be racist?
Racism comes from someone in a position of power and it causes harm to the intended person(s). You figure it out.
During my military life, specifically life in the enlisted bachelor quarters, I remember several instances where certain black people made comments to the effect that I didn't belong there (e.g., when I was visiting black friends). If I wanted to be childish and small-minded about it, I might proclaim them as racists. But in the larger context, I suffered no harm.
BTW, the term nappy headed is in reference to fuzzy or kinky hair. I have a jewish friend who has the type of hair that could be called nappy. Actually one could say that Ben Askren is pretty nappy headed.
You could, but as I said before, I've never heard the term applied to a white person. It seems Imus was quite clearly referring to a group of black women.
