Not really. Racism is racism, but some kinds of racism are very important 
and consequential (ex. groups with power ==> groups with no power), and some 
kinds just aren't as important (individual with no power ===> groups with 
overwhelming power).

It's not a redefinition of racism; it's just an acknowledgment that some 
forms are far more toxic than others.


Even if I accept that some forms of racism are more toxic than others, 
that's not what you're saying.  You are saying that the blacks under 
apartheid are NOT racists for attacking whites based on skin color.
