At what point is it considered that you have crossed the barrier from somewhat of a racist remark to a friend or colleague to racism. Is racism in all forms despicable? Is it acceptable depending on the situation and severity? I find it harder to define racism today. I have been racist in the past to friends who have laughed at the remarks and also to those who have been racist towards me. Is it ok to have a laugh and joke with friends with no deeper meaning or does this develop an understanding into our knowledge that it is okay to be racist sometimes. What are your views on racism? Have you been a victim? Have you been a perpetrator? Do you think racism in all forms are bad or do you think under certain circumstances we should turn our head?
