It's even more annoying when we're not even discussing humans!

Yeah, a lot of the stuff referred to as "racist" is either stereotypical but not necessarily prejudice, or targeted at an ethnicity rather than a race. People also tend to look too deep into things that really aren't all that offensive.

It's also annoying when some people think its racist when some say "This black guy....."
"OMG, why'd you have to say he was black? That's racist!"
"He was black......"

yeah sometimes it's unnecessary to refer to people as black or white ,I mean u could just say this guy.... but then I know that we just tend to do that automaticly for organisational description purposes to do with ur minds ! I think we all do that and it's not meant to be negetive ! It's just natural to sort of describe the world around us while talking, like you know next thing we know, some one will say "yeah this girl was standing in line ahead of me ..." "oh mygod why do you have to say girl? Say person! you sexist! "

True but to be fair, people are more likely to use race in the description of a person when someone is non-white as if being white is the default race and doesn't need to be pointed out.

Racism is the belief that a person can be inferior because of their race. It's not making a joke or noticing stereotypes. Calling stuff like that racist seems to take away from the true meaning of the word.
