    With claims that seem more from the Jim Crow era than the 21st century, two black workers filed a discrimination complaint against a Tennessee cotton warehouse.
    Antonio Harris and Marrio Mangrum allege their former supervisor at Atkinson Cotton Warehouse in Memphis told them the drinking fountain and the microwave were for whites only and threatened to hang one of them if he should attempt to drink from the fountain, WREG reports.
    Harris allegedly captured the blatantly racist exchange on his cellphone recorder and shared the clip with WREG (above). The Atlanta Journal-Constitution noted that "recording audio without consent is legal in Tennessee."
    The complaint also contends the supervisor waxed nostalgic for segregation and told the two to "think like a white man" and called them "monkeys." The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is mediating with the warehouse owner to hammer out a possible settlement, WREG reports.
    Federal Compress, the company that runs the warehouse, told ABC News it had "zero tolerance" for discrimination. A representative said the supervisor didn't work there anymore.
    As can be imagined, many were outraged by the allegations. Several comments on Jezebel's write up of the story were punctuated with the familiar abbreviation of disbelief: "WTF."

    walk with me Kemetstry...

    Racism is not discrimination or prejudice based on race. Racism contains discrimination.. and prejudice.. as practical elements.. but Discrimination is discrimination and prejudice is prejudice.. Racism is a system of control enacted by so-called "White people" for the purpose of maintaining their dominance over non-white people. Let me say that again... Racism is a system of control enacted by so-called "White people" for the purpose of maintaining their dominance over non-white people. And this dominance is a dominance that has been attained by ruthless and horrific acts of murder, rape, torture, injustice and terror against the men, women and children of the dominated non-white people. I offer the African Holocaust and the outright slaughter of the Native American people as evidence. Racism operates simultaneously on multiple coordinated levels.. on a Civic Level, on Commerce level on a Social level.. etc.. for example,
    • on a Civic level racism is enacted through legislation aimed at maintaining the dominance of white citizens over non-white citizens.. This includes the education system.. the judicial system.. policing of communities.. social services.. etc..
    • At the Commerce level, Racism is enacted through discriminatory practices with regard to hiring, firing, wages, benefits, etc..
    • at the Social level, the system of Racism is enacted through the demonization of black people in the media.. intentional social segregation.. demeaning, debasing language and behavior aimed at black people for the purpose of whites maintaining a comparatively elevated social status.
    That's what Racism is.. and more importantly.. that is what Racism is for. It is a system aimed at a specific objective.. it's not language.. or discrimination.. it's an entire system of oppression.. social, political, economic, judicial, etc.. that is underwritten by unadulterated, horrific and ruthless violence. Context is everyeveryeverything. The definition of Racism that you operate under is the definition that the Dominant group has created for you through their media.. its an abstract definition that can be lifted and dropped on anyone.. on anygroup.. its a definition devoid of any real substance or accountability. It simply floats in the air waiting to be applied.. But actual Racism is a deliberate and organized system of maintaining dominance.. and its codified in law and in cultural practices.. Its not words.. or speech.. or thoughts.. its action. And without dominance, you cannot exercise a system of racism. Its white folks that wish to remove themselves from the equation that favor these very light abstract definitions.. they then point to the abstraction as the culprit.. so Discrimination is bad.. not white folks practising discrimination.. discrimination itself.. and that leads to the second term.. Racist..

    A Racist is a member of the dominant group that actively participates in the execution of the system of Racism and/or directly benefits from the execution of the system of racism. It has very little to do with Hate.. it has to do with context.. with action.. not emotion.. or words.. a person who loves black people can still be a racist. The hate part has been refined and codified into the cultural practices of the dominant culture.. its ingrained now.. ground into a fine mist and mixed into the foundation of the cultural institutional practices of the Dominant group.. its the reason why they look down at the more overt racist attitudes and actions of the less refined members of their group.. they are essentially saying to them, "we don't have to do it like that anymore"..

    ( http://destee.com/index.php?threads/on-a-definition-of-racism-racist-and-miss-millieism.69012/ )
    when you weaken the definition of "racism" and "racist", you actually reinterpret history and dilute the plight of our ancestors.. Harsh language is the least of what they faced. In 50 years what our ancestors faced will be regarded as nothing more than some harsh words and attitudes.

    I agree. But it is also a vampire. And like all vampires, they must be exposed to the light of day. Thus purging us of its evil.
