10:03 AM 5/30/09 · The actual definition of racism is 1. a belief that some races are by nature superior to others 2. discrimination based on such belief...whereas an actual racist is generally viewed as someone that hates others based soley on their race rather than on anything actually having to do with what kind of person they are.

So, while it may not be entirely PC, to say that someone of Latin descent may have a better view on certain issues than someone who was born Caucasian is not a racist thing to say. Depending on what context the whatever is...it may even be a valid point. It in no way puts forth a notion of racial superiority but rather one of racial perspective.

The Republicans are really reaching on this one.
