[QUOTE=Starpluck;34802199]Racism is the judgment of people's behavior and character based on race. It may not have any application to how people are actually treated.[/QUOTE] Scientific Racism or simply Racialism is an objective way of investigating and categorizing races for their racial traits. Such as genetic, body and facial features. Racism is the idea of that some ethnicities are of less worth because of those differences. [QUOTE=Starpluck;34802199]Discrimination (not limited to race, it also covers sex, sexual orientation, beliefs etc.) is the application of such subjective rationale in practice like in housing or employment.[/QUOTE] In Zero Hour's case it sounds more like an innocent and rather stupid attempt to make fun of the Arab in this video. Reading his post, there's nothing that implies racism. (even by your interpretation of racism)

Stop being disrespectful towards his beliefs.:downs:

Why don't these people keep these beliefs to themselves, really. a little self control please
[quote]later attacking her with what appeared to be a plastic bag.[/quote] No I am pretty sure it was an AK-47
In my opinion, Islam is the major religion/culture in Malaysia so should the hotel request it (or if enforced by law) tourists should show respect to their customs. But if not, it's perfectly fine for them to display affection. I don't know their laws but I know Islam is the largest practiced religion in Malaysia. If I were a tourist I would make sure not to intrude and disrespect their customs, same as I expect tourists in my country to respect our ways.
What a disgrace. I don't understand how people like this think. They're in a muslim country. So? They're the ones doing it, and "sinning",it had nothing to do with him. So why be enraged about it?

[editline]21st February 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=adam1172;34802023]Oh look, Kota Kinabalu, I live there, we actually got the address of the hotel this man is staying. Some people confronted him after this happened and I'm not sure what happened next. Also, Malaysia IS a Muslim country, but not Borneo, we have no official religion.[/QUOTE] This
Ah, my bad then.

So why be enraged about it?[/QUOTE] As much as I respect the sovereignty and cultures of different parts of the world, his saying "You are in muslim country, you will behave" and "don't tell go out" like he has more rights than the people under question just pisses me off. I really feel the entire world, all of Earth, MUST remain a neutral ground upon which people practice their culture. It MUST NOT be segregated into areas like Christian/Muslim countries. Dividing the world because of religion is a huge disgrace and disrespectful to Humanity as a whole.
I have no rational argument here. Only two words come to mind, and those are "stupid" and "fuck".
[QUOTE=Hellsten;34802024]Should have been tagged as discrimination, not racism. Racism is an extremely washed out word today and it seems many do not know its meaning.[/QUOTE] no, it's racism. that whole "racism is only the belief that one race is inferior to others" dictionary definition is reductive and blatantly wrong
[QUOTE=Hellsten;34802024]Should have been tagged as discrimination, not racism. Racism is an extremely washed out word today and it seems many do not know its meaning.[/QUOTE] Incidentally, you don't seem to know the meaning of the word discrimination.
[QUOTE=SigmaLambda;34805923]no, it's racism.[/QUOTE] Can you please explain how "SAND MONKEY FUCK" can be interpreted as racist? [QUOTE=SigmaLambda;34805923]that whole "racism is only the belief that one race is inferior to others" dictionary definition is reductive and blatantly wrong[/QUOTE] And why is that? [QUOTE=Sir Whoopsalot;34806002]Incidentally, you don't seem to know the meaning of the word discrimination.[/QUOTE] Please, enlighten me. Referring someone to as a "sand monkey" (whatever that may be) sounds pretty discriminating and insulting to me.
who cares about what is racist or not. did nobody see he smashed the woman in the face???
He's just expressing his beliefs!
Hey look, it's the polar opposite of Carl Sagan.
I've analyzed the video and have come to the conclusion that he is actually not wearing any shoes, no wonder he was so angered. [editline]21st February 2012[/editline] Oh and holy crap that guy filmed account information let's find out what it's for.
Allahu Akbar
[QUOTE=Hellsten;34806388]Can you please explain how "SAND MONKEY FUCK" can be interpreted as racist?[/QUOTE] "sand monkey" is a racial slur. [QUOTE=Hellsten;34806388]And why is that?[/QUOTE] because racism is a lot more complex than merely "thinking that one race is inferior to others". Racism refers to a wide reaching set of possible attitudes and beliefs, one of which is the choices we make with our language when we discuss people. "sand monkey" is a racial slur against people of arab or middle eastern descent; therefore calling someone a "sand monkey" is racist. [QUOTE=Hellsten;34806388]Referring someone to as a "sand monkey" (whatever that may be) sounds pretty discriminating and insulting to me.[/QUOTE] "Discrimination" refers to treating someone differently in a functional capacity, like when considering someone for a job position or when dealing with them in your daily life. A comment posted on an internet forum can be prejudiced, but unless the comment directly affects the life of the person who is being referred to, it's not discrimination. [editline]21st February 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=AK'z;34806478]who cares about what is racist or not. did nobody see he smashed the woman in the face???[/QUOTE] racism is not an appropriate response to that.
[QUOTE=SigmaLambda;34807032] racism is not an appropriate response to that.[/QUOTE] Inappropriate debate for what is clearly a video of a man in a skirt smashing a woman in the face with a bag.
[QUOTE=AK'z;34806478]who cares about what is racist or not. did nobody see he smashed the woman in the face???[/QUOTE] Right in the face it was awesome, had to replay it like six times.
[QUOTE=AK'z;34807052]Inappropriate debate for what is clearly a video of a man in a skirt smashing a woman in the face with a bag.[/QUOTE] Don't see how him wearing a skirt is relevant, since there are plenty of cultures where it's perfectly acceptable, such as a dhoti or sarong.
[QUOTE=AK'z;34807052]Inappropriate debate for what is clearly a video of a man in a skirt smashing a woman in the face with a bag.[/QUOTE] you seem to be implying that, if the circumstances are extreme enough, racism can become an appropriate response
YEAH! Fuck people who show their love for each other!

This is a man with a shirt and a skirt on.
[QUOTE=AK'z;34807134]do you enjoy this type of discussion? I don't. [/QUOTE] then why are you participating in it?
