Cops have their own distinct language, jargon, clothing, customs,
and traditions.** It's much more than just a job to those who do it. 
Hell,they make entire TV shows that focus on the themes of fraternity 
and familythat come with a career in law enforcement. No one's making 
similar TVshows about proofreaders for good reason. The two are not 
remotely comparable.

**All of which qualifies for 'racism' under your exiting new definition 
of the term.

> Remove the job, and what do they have in common?

Remove any of the factors in your exiting new definition of racism and 
it all falls apart.
