What is a racist?

What is a “racist”? In my view, a racist is somebody who, in his promotion of mass immigration, legal or illegal, supports the job displacement of African-Americans or the denial of employment opportunities to aboriginal Canadians in favour of cheaper foreign-born labour. A racist is often someone who lives in the safety of a white suburb outside the city core then mounts the charger of anti-racism while sending his children to white schools. His interaction with ethnic minorities consists of friendly encounters with waiters in ethnic restaurants or the guy pushing a mop in the local hospital whom he greets with a congenial banality as he quickly brushes by. People with whom he would never share a neighbourhood. A racist is a tenured professor of Women’s Studies who makes $60,000 a year denouncing sexism and racism in her classroom while paying a Filipino nanny the minimum wage to mind her kids at home. A racist is someone who left the ethnic gang warfare and murders of the city behind in his classic white-flight to a placid and lilly-white rural locality, and once there, became a strident advocate of multiculturalism and a passionate participant in the annual “International Walk Against Racism”. Of course he claims to have left the city only to avoid pollution and gridlock. The usual cover story.
