Why don’t people know shit like this?
Yes, you can be racist to ethnicities. The definition of racism is discriminating against someone solely for their race or ethnicity (which, by the way, can qualify as race in some definitions). It’s different from ethnocentrism too, since you can be racist to ethnic Russians and not think that your own ethnicity or culture (American is definitely NOT an ethnicity, but it could qualify as a culture) is superior to everything. Basically, racism is purely discrimination while ethnocentrism is mostly a superiority complex. These in turn are both different from Xenophobia, which is the discrimination of foreigners regardless of race and/or ethnicity. Basically, this term focuses on nationality instead of ethnicity.
Also, you can be racist towards anyone. Contrary to the belief of SJWs, racism does NOT require oppression of any sort.
Sorry about all these explanatory rants we’ve been posting; Ked and I don’t have anywhere else to put them. It’s kinda like venting, but with attempting to educate ignorant people also being a part.
