Listen up here buddy, racism isn't black and white. You are viewing racism as a black and white thing. You either are or you aren't racist.
This is absurd since nothing else works that way. Dualism is wrong, reality is completely subjective, that includes even racism. It is possible to
harbor some racist thoughts and not be full blown racist. It is part of being human. If you knew me (well at all), you'd know that I am one of the
most compassionate and nice people you could meet, blunt yes, but I would never do anything to hurt someone else. You need to drop the dualistic view
of racism that you have adopted. It isn't reality. Having stereotypical thoughts doesn't make you racist, it is just observing some like tendencies
of a different group of people. I happen to ALSO laugh at stereotype jokes made at my own expense as well. Seriously you have a lot to learn about the
world and hate. You really don't know what real racism is.
Racism is black and white...it's simple...do you make judgments based on someone's race or skin color in any capacity? If the answer to that
question is yes, then you are racist.
There is no level of racism that is acceptable like you suggest. You can have some racists views and consider yourself non-racist. If you harbor any
racists thoughts...I'm sorry...you are racist.
I have to cover this one specifically.
Having stereotypical thoughts doesn't make you racist, it is just observing some like tendencies of a different group of people.
YES IT DOES...that is EXACTLY the definition of being racist. Don't judge the group, judge the person.
And you would lose that bet. I'm 29. See there you go again with the dumb assumptions.
LOL, off by one year....I stand by my assessment of you.
How about you explain why it is necessary for an application to include someone's race if that isn't supposed to be taken into consideration
when hiring someone.
Race is NOT supposed to be taken into consideration when hiring someone, no matter what their race is. But this information is required for
statistical purposes. Since people are racists, and yes they still are, if someone doesn't monitor them to make sure they are practicing fair
hiring...they won't do it.
So the reason you need to fill out your race on the application is so it can be shown that if you have x% of applicants are a certain race, then you
should be close to having x% of employees of that race.
It's hilarious that you seem to be denying that racism is still a huge issue in our society and that people need to be monitored to make sure they
aren't excluding certain races from employment. This is basic history that you should know.
Why is it racist to object to things like Obamacare?
Did I say it was?
Why is a game where a bunch of black people go and jump white people called a "game" yet a bunch of white people going and beating up a black
person is a hate crime?
You are kidding right? No one calls it a game except the morons who are doing it. Do you think if the cops catch them that they just let them go
because it was just a "game"? You know, because black kids are NEVER arrested...right???
You seem very bitter for some reason.
You are clearly young, I'm going to guess by the age comment earlier in the thread that you are probably even younger than I, say early
twenties, late teens. You are probably in college and inundated with college liberalism and idealism.
At least my assessment of you was close....you are way off...I'm older than you. I'm 35, not in college and don't view the world in a idealistic
way...that would be the person claiming that if we just ignore "race" then racism will go away *rollseyes*
You are arguing with me armed with a butter knife while I am armed with a machine gun. You are just out of your league here.
Who is arguing? I'm not arguing anything, just making observations which have obviously touched a nerve with you.
It's funny that you are puffing your chest out here though. I made an observation that you seem to have racists tendencies....and you came right out
and confirmed those. Although according to you, you don't have ENOUGH racists views to be considered a racists. Let me tell you, with logical
skills like that...I wouldn't brag too much about me not being in your league...I may just take it as a compliment.
It's fine though, I used to be there with such black and white views on racism, then I got out and experienced more of the world and realized
that everyone harbors some hate or dislike in them, but that doesn't automatically make them racist. They have to act on that hate first.
LOL, that is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. So according to you, as long as you don't act on your hate of someone due to their
race...then you aren't a racist. LOL!!!!
Seriously, you can't really believe that.
See, because you view racism as something can only happen to a minority, you have already shown me that you do not know what racism truly is.
White people can certainly be and are victims of racism.
And where have I stated that I view racism as something that can only happen to a minority? Now you are just making things up.
However, in America, historically and currently racism has only had a detrimental effect on minorities on the whole.
There certainly ARE racist policies on the books against white people, AA being chief among them (by the way, I have no problem having a
minority or non-white person getting a job or position that they are QUALIFIED for, but by and by AA results in MANY MANY MANY unqualified individuals
getting jobs over more qualified ones all because they are minorities and that is wrong).
Sorry, but you are just wrong. You are misinformed and you are eating up right wing rhetoric.
Please show me the statistics of all the unqualified minorities (I hope it is in excess of a 25% rate) being hired over the qualified white worker.
And how do you know this information? I don't think you have ever hired anyone...or else you would know that qualified/unqualified is not black and
white (OH, I thought you didn't participate in dualism...I guess you do).
AA is not racist....it deals with percentages and statistics...it can work in favor of whites if they live in an area that is predominantly non-white.
Please educate yourself before speaking out on a subject.
Then you defend wild accusations of racism against people for disagreeing with someone who happens to be a minority. Why do you think it is ok
for a Democrat to call someone a racist for not liking the ACA?
Again, where did I say this?
You seem bitter...I'm sure there is a reason...but just remember, your situation in life is due to YOUR actions...not because you think you have been
slighted by some group.
Stopping judging a person by what "group" they belong to and judge the individual. It's as simple as that.
