DOES GOOGLING ON NIGGA MAKE YOU RACIST OR MERELY GANGSTA?

So yesterday, the Washington Post editors published a work by Christopher Ingraham clearly trying to capitalize on the Baltimore riots in effort to sell advertising at higher ad rates. In the work, Ingraham parrots a bogus study that claims racism can be measured by how many search on the word nigger through Google. Ingraham wades into the deep-end of stupidity by calling the research method a "makes-tons-of-sense-when-you-think-about-it method."

Merely searching for the word nigger doesn't make anyone racist. What if someone is black and searches google with the keyword nigger? What if someone is black and searches on the variant word nigga because that is a word often spoken among blacks. Both results would be tallied in the data that constitutes that phony graphic and phony story.

Interestingly, a map published with the work reveals that areas designated more than average and much more than average roughly correspond to where most blacks live in the USA. In short, the methodology of the researcher likely is flawed, horribly so.

Likely, the only objective measure of racism would be this:

the ratio of job applications rejected by private employers of those applicants of different races to the respective employer's race expressed as a percent.

Unless someone is being deprived, economically that is, if someone is being prevented from earning a living, then racism isn't happening.

If you hate Caucasians and you are negroid or mongoloid, that doesn't make you racist, merely stupid. If you collude with others to stop those Caucasians from trading property in pursuit of profit, then and only then are you living by racism.

And the same holds true for anyone who perceives himself to be part of one race and deprives those from other races from trading their property, that is, their rights of ownership, in pursuit of profit.
