    If you are saying that I am not using an accurate definition of "racism" please support that assertion.

    Which doesn't address my scenario. I'm talking about a born white American telling a born black American "Go back to Africa" so bringing an immigrant into it is not addressing what I'm saying.

    But then you misstated my argument (it's not about immigrants but born Americans).

    So again, do you disagree that a White American telling a Black AMERICAN to "go back to Africa" is racist? If you don't take an oppositional position to the notion that it is racist, then this position stands as unchallenged.
