    The only reason to call someone "that black guy over there" would be to single them out. If there was a group of black people then it wouldn't make sense to say "that black guy" because people would be like "uh... which one?"

    I wouldn't be offended if I was in a group of non-whites and someone said "that white girl over there". It doesn't make sense to be offended about it.

    No it isnt. Racism is defined as the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, esp. so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.

    "Did you see that black guy yesterday?" is not a form of racism.

    "Did you see that black guy stealing those shoes? I can't believe they're allowed to go to school and vote with us Anglo-Saxon superiors." is racism.

    Not to me. People tend to flip out when someone mentions black in conversation just because. They're the true racist ones because they clearly see something wrong with the mentioning of black people. It's like the time when Pokémon Black and Pokémon White came out and people said the titles were racist.

    Technically, it's not, as long as your not saying anything negative about their race.
    But I call black people African-American, just in case they take offense by being reffered to as a "black guy".

    Depends on how you use it. You could call it racist if you're calling him "a black guy" and it has no bearing on what you have to say, but if you are describing someone as "a black guy" to give a description so it's easier to find the person, for example, it's obviously not racist.
