    Not in itself. Only if you have thoughts that the person in question is inferior because of their race. Just noticing someone's skin color or facial features is not racist.

    No. There is too much fear about the subject. We should be able to talk about these things, unless it goes into offensiveness.

    I never cared what color you are until lately when I have became aware that all dark skinned people unjustifiably want white people dead and gone.None of them have ever read any history books and are always painting themselves into victims somehow.

    Racist is a charged term. It is inherently an accusation of wrongdoing. I prefer beef to pork. Am I a beefist?

    It's inherently human to notice differences and make appropriate decisions based on what is good for the individual.

    Sometimes people look at me oddly when they see my eyes because I am not remembering to notice their colour. It is like "Have you noticed what colour I am". Then I see the colour of the skin around their eyes, where before I had just been seeing them in there.

    No .. it isn't racist to 'notice' someone's race.

    What is racist is to discriminate because of it

    or make steriotypical assumptions about someone because of their race.
