    If you are a racist does that make you a evil person?

    One of the definitions of racism specifies that you believe that your race is superior to others.  The evil effects of racism are well documented in world history. Can it be said definitively that a racist person is a an evil person?

    That's a type of mathematical equation.  Racism is a form of pride and hate, which are both not attributes of God or love.  There is also reverse racism when one shows extra special treatment to those of another race so as not to be accused of racism.  Racism is sometimes a learned behavior that can be undone by an otherwise "good" person.  Sometimes people don't realize they're racist until faced with the issue head-on (i.e. dating, marriage or having a child).  If people elect to be racist, I would say IT'S evil.

    Racism is one of the most over used, and misused terms. To be prejudice is to be a bigot. All people have prejudices from varying degrees. A Racist believes that their race is inherently (by virtue of birth) superior to another race and because of that superiority has the right to rule or dominate that race.
         As to the question, are all racist evil? As a Christian, and an admitted sinner who am I to cast the first stone? All mankind are sinners am I prepared to call all mankind evil? No! I certainly hope that people are not to be judged by the worst thing they ever did or thought. I believe that there is redemption and forgiveness, you only to take it.

    I agree with nifty@50 and I would say that you should rephrase your question. Does cheating make you an evil person? Does lying make you an evil person? Does gossiping make you an evil person? Being racist would just be another category of sin that some people struggle with. It is wrong, but everybody has things about them that are wrong. It should be dealt with like other sins by trying to rid yourself of it.

    I'd say that is a form of evil. Yes. Any type of concentrated hatred is evil so when you are open to evil than you can, over time become evil.

    The answer is no to being evil since racism is the feelings one has toward another person.Can someone who is a radical be a racist?
    Check this out.  google '' the Joyce foundation ''

    There is much that was not written about candidate Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign. The main-street media was not reporting many of Barak Obama’s ties to radical groups. It appears that Fox News was one of
    the very few to expose many of his past experiences.

    The news media did not report about Obama’s relations with the Joyce foundation and other radical groups supported by the Joyce foundation.

    For an in-depth review of Obama’s connection to the Joyce foundation, Tides, Acorn and other radical groups, Google ‘’ The Joyce Foundation’’.

    The answers to why and who the real Obama is can be found  in his relationship as a director of the foundation. The plans to change our government is in full throttle without much opposition from his party.

    Today 4/26/10 on Fox News,  Glen Beck program ,Goldman Sachs was the main topic. To try to understand what is occurring in congress debating the financial reform bill and cap and trade bills one must look back into the past.

    Today’s Glen Beck’s program is a must see.. Check it out on Fox News.com, click on  Glen Beck and open ‘’The one thing why Goldman Sachs is willing to take the heat’’.

    A program   for the public to try to understand what the media is not reporting and covering up in the news.

    When it comes to racism, bigotry and all the other aspects of superiority-YES, YES, YES I find it does make one an evil person. Why you ask?  I'm glad you asked that question.  I find it interesting how people go to the bible and try to down play racist thoughs, actions or behaviors, but what are these attitudes, really, when we look at them in the context of the bible-one word -PRIDE and one of the things God dislike most of all about mankind is Pride.  People who use the idea that these avenues of travel in life where being better then others doesn't understand the bible at all- Jesus with all his power never used that power once to show how superior he was to the entire planet.  Jesus did what we can't seem to ever do or at least for any length of time and that is to serve each other.  Jesus the God of all life washed his discipline's feet how many stranger's feet have we washed?  If this superior thinking comes in to play when we see someone in needed on the street how will we be like Jesus because they would be in our mind inferior to us-where did this thinking come from since God made all people?  Who decided who would be inferior and superior?  Racism is the evil I would find associated with Satan who tried to take God's seat in Heaven because he felt he was superior.
