Racism is a slightly flexible concept, not least since there are no distinct 'races' of people in the scientific sense.

Official narrative

Racial discrimination is not acceptable and racist states such as the government of South Africa have been opposed by the (non-racist) international community. Explicit racism should not be tolerated (even to the point of impinging on free speech). Implicit racism based on economic or other means is however not a problem.

Concerns

Institutions can be racist. Arrests for drug use in particular are disproportionately heavy for non-whites in many nations, such as UK and US. The "War on Drugs" has often been used as a hidden means of racist social control.

Social control

Racism has been exploited for millenia as a method to divide and conquer.[1]

British empire

The British empire systematically exploited tensions between different ethnic groups in its subject states.

China

Using the language of the "war on terror", the Chinese government has been launching a range of attacks on minority populations on minority population groups, notably Turkic Muslims in Xinjiang as part of the "Strike Hard Campaign".[2]

“Chinese authorities, bolstered by technology, arbitrarily and indefinitely detaining Turkic Muslims in Xinjiang en masse for actions and behavior that are not crimes under Chinese law. And yet Chinese authorities continue to make wildly inaccurate claims that their “sophisticated” systems are keeping Xinjiang safe by “targeting” terrorists “with precision.””

Blowback“You want to know what this was really all about. The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying. We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”1994
Ibram X Kendi“Some White colonizers 'adopted' Black children. They 'civilized' these 'savage' children in the 'superior' ways of White people, while using them as props in their lifelong pictures of denial, while cutting the biological parents of these children out of the picture of humanity. And whether this is Barrett or not is not the point. It is a belief too many White people have: if they have or adopt a child of color, then they can't be racist.”Ibram X Kendi2020
Love“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”MLK

PewDiePie ADL controversy“Reinstalled Twitter to talk about PewDiePie's betrayal by donating 50k to the ADL. The company working with places like Twitter to get rid of anything "Offensive" @pewdiepie

You just supported a group that even ruined even YOUR deal to Disney. Wtf?

PewDiePie literally paid $50,000 to not be called racist anymore. And in turn- he just got so many people in the future censored off of places like Twitter and YouTube.

Anytime someone gets banned for now on, I'll be sure to say

"Thanks Pewdiepie"”
