No, no they're not. They may be.
"Someone" who wrote "we HAVE TO be racist, or we'll be overrun and overwhelmed" is maybe not racist after he also wrote "a feeling that the "Great Replacement" thesis might actually have some truth to it" is maybe not a racist, xenophobic, and/or nationalist fucks?
"Someone" who wrote "...I'm both a racist and a misanthrope..." is maybe not a racist?

In some cases that might be correct, but it's not as absolutist as you infer. There are many people, particularly older members of settled western societies, who are not at heart racist but who are shell-shocked by a variety of cultural changes.
Indeed, but in his opening post Sean Hayden has simply and categorically claimed that it is batshit to accuse a person who says they're worried their culture is dying out under the influence of another culture of being racist, xenophobic, and nationalist, and by way of agreeing in part, I listed half a dozen non-racist causes of shell-shock here
. We are not talking about them, are we? I think Sean was motivated to create this thread after reading at least a few of the latest posts concerning Svartalf's views and Fallible's reaction to them, and laklak has seen a connection between them too. In that context, Sean is wrong with what he wrote in the OP.
Now, Shane, be honest; what was the immediate trigger that made you start this thread?
