How can you tell if someone is culturally ignorant vs. racist?(differences between two?)
A racist is someone who thinks that their "race" is superior to other "races" based on some trait attributed to their "race" like skin color or some other physical or external trait.
A culturallly ignorant person wouldn't share the racists belief. They may make certain statements or judgements about certain cultures out of ingnorance of that culture's values, behavior or other cultural practices or traditions
That's a great question! I think it is intent. What is their intention when they say or do something. I was just having this conversation yesterday because I had always felt that my parents raised me to be fair and non judgemental no matter race, religion, sexual orientation, etc. Yet, she was telling me a story and felt she had to clarify that the man was black. It saddened me and confused me because it had no purpose in the story. I do feel on her part it was ignorance. At least I hope it was!
Culturally ignorant people are simply people who do not know or understand the ways of a particular ethnic group--the food, clothing, manners, etc. A racist person believes that one whose appearance is different from another (based on where their ancestors came from) is physically, psychologically, or intellectually superior to another.
