WHAT RACISM IS AND ISN’T
Defining racism has become utterly metaphysical. Look, we have structural racism- which could be ameliorated by policy. Then we have hateful racist behavior- racism old style. What we don’t have is magic white racism, where “racism” is imputed to people based only on skin color. I agree that “privilege” colors the experience of *individuals* as they go through life, but privilege deals with an infinity of “categories” far more than just race, gender, and orientation.
