The Word Color Offends me
But so does the word Rainbow
Oh my now I'm offended by the word RACE CARD
omg White offends me now, it's in Vogue you know...

/sarcasm. This world is over, i cannot wait for it to go BOoM. The ignorance is all consuming and there is no end in sight. What a mess this place has become. There is no intelligence particularily where common sense is concerned. Some days i wake up and just want to pass out again so i don't have to look at it, hear it, or ingest or digest it. If the Anti Christ shows up i doubt i'd mind it wouldn't make a sod bit of difference.

Yes i feel the same way, like something went wrong and trapped us here longer than we needed to be. Damnit, there'd better be a damn good reason for that one lol!

Seriously though everything is messed up the 80's seem so far away, there is nothing familiar about this era now, nothing.

Absolutely brilliant plan. And no sarcasm on my end, I mean that.

Too bad you're not in charge of anything!!! Bwahahahaha!!!
And I'm not being crappy, you know it's true. That idea makes waaayyy too much sense and the dillweeds in charge of anything would never go for it.

Don't ever lose your sense of hope, kid. No matter how hopeless things are.



Maybe some day someone with a brain in their head will actually get a chance to make a major decision or two!!!

The inane part of this whole "whites experience racism" palaver - is that none of these monumental displays of black on white racism, mention that laws were changed, amended and created to stop the institutionalised racism that deemed it an offence to be sitting in the wrong seat on a bus - effectively creating whole races of humans, persona non grata...not even giving them the vote - prescribing what doorways, toilets, service areas that particular races were to utilise exclusively...

Black on white racism - you poor things...

Å99


So, two wrongs make a right then?

Got it.


I'll explain it a little way (cos it seems to have been conveniently missed)...and no, 2 wrongs don't make a right...

...but...IF - folk are somehow equating vilification laws that attempt to redress the balance of institutionalised racism globally with slavery, lynching, institutionalised segregation, ghetto-isation/reservationalism, the ability in law to refer to a race as fauna etc etc etc...just...grow a pair...cos most of that, globally, WAS legal...until relatively recently...

We see cases like this all the time, and every time they are discussed, there are people defending it, claiming it isn't really racism, because it doesn't fit some outdated set of criteria. Frankly, anyone doing that is only adding to the problem. There is no law in this day and age, in the United States, that allows any black person to be told they can't sit in whatever seat they want on a bus, or eat in whatever restaurant they want, or attend the same schools as people of other colors, or that allows them to be denied a job based on their skin color, or anything else of that sort. So, for those tossing that out,
. That hasn't been the reality for decades, and people are sick of hearing about it. Nothing that happened back then is an excuse for racism against whites today. Nothing.

Now that that's out of the way, do you folks have any other reason to excuse this behavior? Any other reason to blame the victims, or demand they feel guilt for something they never did, or claim they are racist and deserve it because they are white? Anything?

I didn't think so.

Mmm...that feeling of consternation folk are experiencing understanding the dynamics of this most transparent of effects is troubling...as if any of this has happened in a vaccuum, just popped up, out of the blue...

No, you weren't personally responsible...but crying about being called a cracker (because there is no white analog to being called an ape or a savage - luckily! because the backlash would be worse)...but we are personally responsible for not taking ownership of the atrociously inhumane behaviour of our forebears...in the country I am in - the indigenous family lines stop 2-3 generations back: children having been wrenched from their mothers - but y'all want to cry about being called names - you've got a way to go before claiming the level of vilification that created the situations you're crying about - that anger would be better directed and dissipated by considering the behaviour of different colored children playing together without the faux superiority complexes - or, gauche inferiority complexes that keep the stupid wheel turning...its no sign of intelligence to not recognise why things are the way they are - even 'decades' later...the full horror was perpetrated over 200 years...y'all think it should correct itself after a couple of decades?...some of those 'children', now grown up are contemplating their heritage, but all they see, is a blank a couple of generations back...the same mentality would be telling traumatised individuals to 'just get over it'...but no - that mentality is crying "I got called a cracker"...get over it, princesses...

Sell that somewhere else, I'm #ing English/Irish/Sicilian my people got enslaved and tore to shreds, I also have American Indian mixed, as most Americans do expecially southern, I have enough and am on the Indian scrolls in Oklahoma and have benefits if I want them, stop this bull#.

No this didn't happen in a vacuum, your pretentiousness is so thick surely you are feeling nauseated. Every culture has committed extreme crimes against humanity,arguably every person has participated,if you went on a misanthropic rant rather than a we should feel bad for people rant, I might be more inclined to offer less resistance.

Everyone has suffered and still suffers to varying degrees, and in different situations, if we want to change anything we need to take personal responsibility and be different in the micro culture we are in that's all we can do ; be a light for the ones near us, and protect me and my own.

Btw, I'm called white and I don't have a problem with it

no one owns my family history's strifes, but we have overcome and are downright successful and hard living against the grain kind of people, and I take pride in that and ask for no ,"please feel bad for me, or reparations" that #s divisive and it's what keeps us hating eachother. We need to be able to look at cultures and address the problems from within without being labeled a bigot, and we need to as humans stop the color charade because that's a bunch of # and the argument you just made plays right into those hands well done.

I have to agree with your more level-headed comments here...the accusatory ones, not so much...

In reality, everyone is a bigot...some are more bigotted than others...and when that bigotry becomes ingrained in power structures, the things you describe happen on this little blue marble...cut it out like you cut out a cancerous growth...it doesn't bode well for the host, to let it fester...build a bridge and get over it - why don't we all just build a bridge and get over ourselves?

No-one would be discussing any of this nonsense if there weren't the history involved...and now a new history is being created as a reaction to the older history...and so on, and so forth...

It's not a particularly difficult concept to wrap your brain around...times have changed...some people resist change at all insane costs, regardless of race...

Yes, but coming from a part American Indian wouldn't I have more right than anyone to scream my failures toward society? Even worse I'm called white yet am I am mixed as most people are, I own no ones problems I own my problems. I should have no white guilt and I've never had white privilege. Being white or seen as white has afforded me little and more so it's a farce. Institutionalized racism isn't a reality, I'm sorry but as long as we continue to blame others for our problems we will continue to have a devided society.

I very honestly and genuinely share your sentiments.

While I have no desire to harm anyone, and wouldn't, even if I had the power to, I nonetheless feel that the human race is not worth saving. This planet needs to explode.

Things aren't going to get better.

When you get down to the dirt most of us have ancestors that endured horrible suffering and slavery, I recently found out that one of my grandfathers was a slave that ran away. I have very oriental looking eyes, have been mistaken for being Hispanic and Arab and the people of my ancestors were sterilized and treated very much like Native Americans were yet you'll never hear me pull any of those cards.

If I was treated differently I'd chalk it up to my perpetually angry eyebrows and not because some scared old white lady thought I was a cholo.. which actually happened, except it was two black guys that thought I was Hispanic.. they were instantly like; "yo, you heard that latest Mister Shadow ese?".. ok that didn't really happen, but they did think I was a cholo.. probably shouldn't wear flannel shirts and khakis when I pack my chrome..

On a slightly different note, it's funny that I never hear of any compassion for the mentally ill that have been forcibly drugged up with poisonous and even lethal drugs, electrocuted, lobotomised, ostracised, terrorized and imprisoned by the very successors of the Nazis.. oh, right.. there's the Scientologists, they hate psychiatry but they lack credibility to put it mildly. I never hear a peep... I've known people like that, their lives are among some of the most tragic I've heard about..

I don't really care about no colors man, witches and the crazies have been the most persecuted for a very long time. The Albigensian crusade, they would kill your ass if you didn't tow the line; their line. Of course, sometimes it has been the very opposite..

Why was my earlier post removed by the way? Because I used a racial slur for black people? I didn't realize that particular word was considered offensive, surely I couldn't have gotten a warning for writing cracker? Gee whiz golly gosh Batman.. gotta walk on eggshells these days..

Alot of people are getting really sick and tired of being brow beaten by the Racism word. It's code for hating White People.

Less than 2% of whites EVER owned one slave in America.

My family were white Irish slaves for over 70 years from 1640-1713 in Virginia.
They never owned slaves. They were NOT indentured servants. They did not trade passage to the United States for a period of indentured servitude. They were war booty from the war with Oliver Cromwell. White people were enslaved for 1000's of years through the North African Barbary Coast slave trades.

White Europeans ended slavery. Slavery is and was vile.

Slavery still exists today in the majority of Africa.

People segregate as a component of culture. That's why you get China Town, because Chinese people like living near Chinese people. In Afrikaans the world for "apart" is Apartheid. Apartheid started because of huge crime waves and riots by blacks after the Second World War. Reaching it's zenith in the death of a Catholic nun being cannibalized in East London, South Africa in 1952.

Where is the US headed ? Who knows but if we are headed the way of Rhodesia/Zimbabwe or South Africa, God help us all.
You don't have to be a racist to want a place to call your own. Why must we pander to the lowest common denominator ? That is an illness.

Thank Mate. Think I have it figured out the youtube embedding now. I just moved back after living 12 years in South America and Asia. Things have definitely changed in the last 12 years and I am getting it all in one dose. I feel that Americans are like the frog in the pot. Changes have happened so slowly that they barely perceive it. You know I loved Asian culture and food and history and I would hope it never goes away. I feel the same about Latin cultures.

I can only hope that White/ Europeans can finally just stop the self hatred and raise up their heads and think, "Yeah we aren't so bad and our culture is important too". We all deserve to be proud of the accomplishments of our people and the uniqueness we bring to the human experience.

It's funny....I truly only saw racism directed at "white people"...sometimes other minorities as well. And, when I saw it, it was from African Americans.


YOU'RE WHITE!!!!



The kind of thing that could only have been taught to the child.

No, not all African Americans act or behave, let alone believe in these behavior.

But, attention needs to be brought to this sort of thing.



Charlize Theron is one beautiful African American!


Funny you say that. Some people might take that as "black Africans" are not attractive.

Thing is, I can't watch porn with black folk in it.

I'm just not attracted to black chicks. I don't know why. I'm just not.

Also, I can't stand the attitudes of Asian American women. Not attracted to them at all.

But, Asian women from Asian countries are so sexy.

Maybe it's the attitude that some of us are discriminating towards?

Well, it's not news. Have you seen the media making a fuss over this? Nope. However, they do make a huge fuss over 1 or two christian bakeries, don't they? They certainly make a big deal about every individual white racist they can, don't they?

Right, because white people aren't real humans that deserve the same respect anyone would be expected to have, right? Lets just continue to let this hatred build and manifest itself in the everyday lives of those dastardly white scum!

It's amazing to me how out of control the media and left wingers on this forum are when talking about this Planned Parenthood shooting and how they quickly attach it all to Fox, conservatives, Republicans and white people. Yet in this case it's just one guy making a privileged white person uncomfortable. What's the harm? Muslims killing people over cartoons and to advance their religion? No big deal, it has nothing to do with Islam or the people who follow Islam!

The contradictions are BLATANT.
