Ok i have some pretty strange things pop into my head at times. This is one of them. I don't have an answer per se' on this at the moment. Oh and if this belongs in a different catagory, mods, please feel free to move it. It was just the best I could think of.

If a person has issues (-ism level issues) with (for examples sake) black women, but none with black men and none with white, asian, or hispanic women, is the person racist, sexist, both or neither? I'm talking your classic racist and sexist views, but only at the specific combination of black women.

Probably not though I don't see why it really matters. Don't let an obsession with labelling everything out-weight actually addressing problems.
