The description says this covers articles about racist people and organizations, but so far only two organisations are listed. Since we now have a category for hate groups, would anyone object if I changed it to just racist people? Baljit (talk) 17:18, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

I would not object. ThunderkatzHo! 17:52, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

How do we decide who's "racist" and who isn't?[edit]

I mean, this is pretty subjective, by that defintion I could also call someone who prefers white chocolate over dark one as racist. 2003:C3:3741:1600:2D51:F5F8:EB4C:D4B1 (talk) 21:57, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

If you're going to argue or ask questions about terms, try communicating that you understand those terms first. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png 🎄LeftyGreenMario!🎄(Mod) 22:05, 23 May 2020 (UTC)
I'd say we're all racists in some way. Some more, some less, but I don't think anyone's 100 %ly or 0 %ly racist. 2003:C3:3741:1600:28FF:9C33:7266:20FB (talk) 23:13, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

Is this category supposed to include people who were at racist at any point in their lives, people who were racist throughout their entire lives, or people who were racist when they died? I am asking this because I am confused about the inclusions of Robert Byrd and Malcolm X in this category, both of who denounced their time in the KKK and the Nation of Islam respectively, and they both made steps to further racial equality. It seems to me that this category includes anyone who was racist at any point in their lives. Is this a useful definition? — Unsigned, by: 73.167.237.144 / talk
