I will admit, I am biased.
I am positively biased towards my fellow humans that conduct themselves with
- Personal responsibility
- Social responsibility
- Sobriety
- Strong family values
- Non-criminal activities
- Willful productivity
- An effort towards continued improvement
- Common interests
- Respect towards our fellow humans.

Thus, by definition, I guess I am negatively biased towards my fellow humans that do not conduct themselves in the above manner.

Does that make me a racist?

Do you grade on a curve, cause I think I"m at about 60-70% on your card, and I still like to think of us as friends.

How could you possibly have pre-existing conditions upon which you base the worthiness of a human being's character? That in of itself is no different than a bigot's perspective.

Really? I did say I tend to have a positive bias based on a number of factors. It wasn’t an absolute, nor even a requirement.

Nonetheless, how do you choose your friends? Employees? Employers? Business associates? Clubs? Groups? Suppliers? Customers? Maybe you close your eyes, ears, and brain and just offer and pursue a close relationship with any and everyone.

Doesn’t everyone do that to some degree? I mean don’t we all have the preexisting condition that if someone is a child molester we won’t judge their character to be very high?

“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.” ― Ernest Hemingway
Is OP talking about being superior, or is he talking about judging someone on the content of their character and not anything else?
Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

No, it doesn't necessarily make you a racist.

But after reading your list - and the fact that you even took the time making a list to extol your values for us - you are probably a pain in the ass to be around. :D
