New vocabulary words to consider

The suffix term -IST is defined as ‘a person who practices or is concerned with something, or holds certain principles, doctrines, etc.: apologist; dramatist; machinist; novelist; realist; socialist; Thomist.’

Which brings me to the term ‘racist’. By definition, a ‘racist’ is one who understands, studies and becomes very knowledgeable in the field of different race cultures. It has been distorted to represent a person who shows a hateful, separated and sometimes violent mindset towards another of a different race and this is commonly based on the LACK of knowledge and understanding of race culture, position in society, etc…

I would like to suggest a couple of words more suited to represent those who are falsely called racist…

1. FOOLISTS– a person who practices or holds being foolish or a fool to high regard when it comes to different race cultures, daily situations, questions answered, actions performed or just anything that would be deemed foolish.
2. IGNORIST– a person who practices being ignorant and/or holds ignorance to a high degree in their daily lives when it comes to different race cultures or anything that the person has no understanding of or has NO desire to gain understanding of said issue, circumstance, etc….
