FredSpudman-So if you stereotyped blacks as being stupid and lazy, that wouldn't be racist?

The problem with that statement is the `you` (and individual) do not stereotype. A stereotype is [quote]a widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing.[/quote]

So, to be a stereotype, it needs to be a widely held opinion.

I know of no widely held opinion (i.e. `stereotype`) that blacks are stupid and/or lazy. (Now there is a stereotype of blacks liking fried chicken..which is fairly accurate. It`s also a stereotype that southerners in general like fried chicken, which is also accurate.)

If an INDIVIDUAL thinks `all blacks` are stupid and lazy then, while not being a `stereotype, it is indeed racist.

That's generalising Drac. A lot of the immigrant groups are highly racist towards the minority whites. Case in point, the Cronulla riots. Started by racism against white Australians. I`m not allowed in some shops where I live because I`m not of the correct ethnic group.

If you've spent time in Australia, you know there is definitely racist intent. They may not have the fried chicken thing in OZ, but they sure hate all non-white races.
