    Check out definition #7 of the word "white" at dictionary.com.(http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=white)

    Has ANYONE ever heard of this definition for white before? Or are powers at play above the radar?

    If you announced that without providing the link, I would have thought you were joking. But the link appears to be real. Man.

    No, the term is historical. In the 19th century revolutionaries such as during the French Revolution and Russian Revolution were considered Reds. Counter-revolutionaries were called Whites such as supporters of Tsar in the Russian Revolution. It was also used during the revolts in Prussia for supporters of the ultra-conservative Bismark governance against the reformers.

    This is the common noun definition. There is no historical defintion cited. Your assertion is like saying that a packer is not one who packs, but someone on a sports team in Green Bay. I don't buy your feeble explanation.

    Words have multiple definitions, often having nothing to do with the other. (Much like Packer and packer). Law *suit*, *suit* of clothes?

    Another definition of "white" is "a hit in the white portion of an archery target". Wha? I didn't know that, but I'm going to accept its validity.

    Unless the anti-white conspirators at the ultra-liberal dictionary.com are also avid archers....

    Sticks and stones,

    White is usually commonly in the 19th century in various countries, as counter revolutionary- reactionary forces.

    References for the unbelieving:

    Russia Counter-Revolutionaries Whites

    http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/White movement



    Prussian Counter-Reactionary Whites
    http://www.historystudystop.co.uk/php/displayarticle.php?article=33&page=1&topic=meu

    Finland Anti-Bolsheviks "Whites"
    http://www.nd.edu/~kellogg/WPS/266.pdf
    Pages 4 and 5

    It appears the "conspiracy" is spreading too. Looks like in infected Merriam-Webster, MSN Encarta and the American Heritage Dictionary. This is the point where we all have a good laugh and realize how silly the idea of this dictionary "conspiracy" was.
