I am but I thought I wasn't. When I heard that Suarez had made a racist comment about another footballer I immediately thought ''But he's black too. How can he be a Racist,he's not White.''

The thoughts that pop into your head doesn't make you racist.
I hope you wear your newfound badge with pride. You souldn't have any difficulty finding political parties to join.
That doesn't make you a racist - just a little confused about the definition of the term.
Am I a racist - definitely not, some of my best friends are black, and I envy each and everyone of them their natural sense of rhythm.
What do you call a black man flying a plane?
A Pilot ! :-)
Actually Andy some of the racists I have come across when challenged always have a black best friend................
its not racism, its penis envy.
most of Diane Abbotts friends are black but she is still a racist,,,,lol

Although now retired I've spent many years working or visiting overseas countries. The abusive terms "baster d', or 'mother f***er' in whatever language, preceded by a reference to the persons colour, ethnic group, religion etc is so common around the world as to raise no issues. Should I have been offended when a french colleague refered to me as "you bloody Ros bits". I would cheerfully refer to him as "another annoying frog". No offence meant or taken.
''some of my best friends are black, and I envy each and everyone of them their natural sense of rhythm''

Is that your tongue making that bulge in your cheek?
"and I envy each and everyone of them their natural sense of rhythm."
Well, there's a racist remark if ever I read one.
All black people have a natural sense of rhythm? Yeah, and all Welshman can sing, all the Irish are thick, and white men can't play the blues...
snags - thank you for proving that irony is not always lost in print ... rojash - thank you for proving that sometimes though, it is.
Suarez isn't black! His Grandad is though, and I still don't believe what he said was intended as racist, and I think the whole event has been massively hypocritical in the fact that it's refused to acknowledge different cultural habits.

I personally think what Andy's said could easily be construed as racist..I'm an ace dancer!... but I suspect it was not at all meant, which just underlines how you can't just decide what was said was racist and it has to be about the sentiment behind it!
Rojash that's not racism it's generalisation.
no, i'm not racist. i just hate everybody equally if they are scumbags. they come in every shape, size and colour x
see I told you it wasn't meant! Bit late hitting submit!
no...but it's very easy to take the lazy approach and buy into stereotypes frequent 'check-recheck' to try to avoid this pitfall
''and white men can't play the blues''

And allegedly they can't jump either...
Gay men can dance too apparently
