Derogatory generalisations about ANY ethnic group - Jews, Anglos, Arabs or Greeks - is racism. And racism is the necessary precursor of genocide whenerver it occurs -in Kosovo, Rwanda, Darfur, Armenia and the Holocaust. Maybe racism is acceptable to you, but one day you may be its victim - if the Turks ever decide to complete their conquest of Cyprus, for example. Standing up to racism (and the bullies who use it) is not whinging. It's called learning from history. And those who don't learn from history are condemned to repeat it.
