They aren't "bringing race into it" either, they are using a distinguishing feature to easily identify an individual. Race is a characteristic just as much as height, gender, age, hair color, etc, and it saying "the african american John" shouldn't be any different than saying "the tall john."
In order to call someone an African-American, you need to know that they are in fact from or are descended from Africans.
Which still makes no kupoing sense because after several generations, you should have dropped the African part.
even i describe black ppl as black, white ppl as white and so forth in simplifying the description of who i'm talking about. If you're mad about shit like this, you need to get laid :/

Discrimination is never okay, I don't even know why there's a need for this threat to clarify that. But discrimination =/= classification. As humans, one of the most diverse races on this planet, we have a natural need to label and separate ourselves from each other because we're so obsessed with individuality.
actually, it is, and maybe you'd understand that
if you got laid
sure, yeah, it's easy to use "the tall john" or "the skinny john" if either can be distinguished by that
but sometimes you can't distinguish between two people using height or weight as a criteria, and then you need to use their skin color
and i fail to see the harm in pointing out that some guy is black if that's all you're doing
if it's the easiest way to identify someone, then go for it
there's no sense in beating around the bush trying to describe them just so you don't have to dare utter what ethnicity they are
that's stupid and makes you look like even more of a cunt than you do saying, "the black john"
enough with comparing discrimination to racism, when its just a chosen bias or preference against or with an ethnicity, creed, religion, and/or nationality.
Of course its wrong, why is this even a question lol. Wouldn't morality be the kicker that determines in what situations its wrong, outlawed, ok vs. not ok?
I'm sorry but, better examples of good discrimination
discrimination against anti-intellectualism
discrimination against gangs (sub-form of anti-intellectualism)
discrimination against oppression
Are they morally justified? At least in the unitied states?
Isn't this why we have laws to a certain degree in regards to certain discrimination? Equal opportunity upholds the merit of having a shot at a job be you male or female or opposing ethnicity. Now its about the quality of your resume and portfolio xD
like really, trivial shit like racism as Celtis said is a complete waste of time and if your offended, not only is that ridiculous, but where and how do you justify that? You really can't, if I can't say what I want even when its politically correct, then what the hell is the point of the first amendment?
