This sheds a light on what is and is not racism.

It is racist:
  • To assume that members of an ethnic or national group are genetically predisposed to certain modes of thought or behaviour.
  • To view all members of an ethnic or national group as an undifferentiated mass, as opposed to a collection of individuals.
  • To fail to apply the same expectations to members of an ethnic group that one holds to one’s own.
  • To make special allowances for the statements and actions of the followers of a religious or political ideology because that religious or political ideology was founded by a non-white person and/or is adhered to by a non-white majority.
  • To claim that racism and bigotry are the sole preserve of one particular ethnic group.
  • To excuse racism and bigotry when it is expressed by members of an ethnic or national group that has historically suffered racial discrimination and abuse at the hands of another ethnic or national group.
  • To seek to forcibly expel members of an ethnic group from one’s nation or to bar their entry into one’s country simply because they are not members of the majority ethnic group of that country.
It is not racist:
  • To hold members of an ethnic or national group to the same standards of thought and behaviour as one holds one’s own.
  • To oppose racist or bigoted ideologies that were founded by a non-whiteperson or are followed by a majority of non-white adherents.
  • To oppose religious ideas that happen to originate in a majority non-white culture or are followed by a majority of non-white adherents.
  • To highlight racist or bigoted ideas and behaviour promoted by individuals who happen to be non-white.
  • To imprison those who violate the laws of one’s country, irrespective of the criminal’s ethnic or religious identity or affiliation.
  • To rationally question immigration policies.
  • To seek the removal of non-nationals from one’s country who incite hatred and seek to undermine liberal society and the rule of law, or to seek to bar them from entering one’s country.
