    Completely disagree.

    That's the OP.

    Like to tell me how that's related to the topic of racism?

    Without going FURTHER than the OP?

    You asked the question a few posts back: what is racism? Don't you think that would make a good starting off place for a thread title?

    If a mod wants to split this thread into one about racism, I wouldn't complain. This thread has completely derailed, and it's a provocative enough issue that it does indeed warrant a thread to itself.

    The thread could be titled "All Si/Fe-ers are racists; Fi saves the day!" That'd be fitting.

    If I believe the Japanese generally have better genetics for playing chess and poorer genetics for sprinting than West-African blacks, am I a racist?
    No, that doesn't make you racist. You'd be racist if you assumed that all West-African blacks are incapable of being good chess players.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I certainly don't believe I am a racist, but I hold views that many others would define as racist--without question. One of my heroes is this brilliant INTJ:

    Arthur Jensen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    As my views are essentially identical to his on quote-unquote "racial issues" it might be instructive to take a look at the reception he received during his heyday...

    Doesn't matter if you think you're justified in it.

    You're still being racist.

    So...racisms may come from type, but it can't be proven either way because type can't be proven?
