Racism against racist people23

Has anyone else noticed the dehumanising language used by the mainstream media against racist people?

I am referring to things like when a person that allegedly holds racist beliefs is referred to as "a racist." "So-and-so is a racist." This is to substitute the more natural phrasing of "so-and-so is a racist person" or "so-and-so is racist" or "so-and-so holds racist beliefs."

This phrasing, deliberately saying "a racist" like this, is trying to diminish the person to one aspect of their identity. It is so the populus can rally behind the mainstream media and easily hate that person. It prevents the people consuming the media from thinking of the person that holds racist beliefs as an individual. It is so the mainstream media can pin the alleged crimes of single people that are racist onto all people that are racist. In my opinion, that is the truest form of racism there is.

This is not a defense of racist beliefs. I do not harbor any racist beliefs myself. But I do not have to hold racist beliefs myself to be worried about what the mainstream media is doing.

question: if you are a white person who says the n-word in any context, does that make you a racist?
rac·ist
/ˈrāsəst/

noun
a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another.

i mean if you're using it in the sense to discriminate or be prejudice to a certain race, then by the definition given, technically you are. (this goes for all races saying it, not necessarily someone who's white)

okay but nowadays n-word means friend, so if i am a white person calling a black person "friend" or "homie" doesn't that make it not racist?

if the intent is not discriminatory or prejudice, then sure, you aren't a racist.

just some people find it offensive even if you meant it in a friendly way, so I suppose you would have to be wary ig.
