I'm white and have a few mixed raced/black friends, they would tell you that no matter what you do in life or colour of skin you have people will always judge one another. very true.

I don't believe in racism only that we are all human beings and no matter the colour/Gender we all need to get along with each other,, fact of life is people will always judge you on something.

So you knew the entire time then why are you playing games?


Nothing personal...but I am going to have to choose not to have a conversation with you....I communicate in a style and manner in which some people understand and some people do not..So rather than encourage both our frustrations..lets call it a day.


So that's your cop out?

You were leading me on with questions you obviously had an answer for........

Now you can't talk to me because you don't want to tell me why you did that?



Asking you a question is not "leading you on"???

You rail on about the poor oppressed white people..I ask you for examples...

You need to think....really...Ask your own questions and find your own answers..

You are mad at me for asking questions?? Or having answers? Or expecting you to back up your arguments or claims?

Nothing personal.....Don't get personal with me...Not interested in that kind of discussion.

Can you provide an example of a population "oppressing white people?"


I'm asking you why you asked me this question full well knowing the answer?

The U.S and a few other nations need to realize that anyone can be racist, the latest movements such as BlackLivesMatter do nothing more than specifically target a certain group of individuals. More specifically white/caucasian individuals as the primary racist group when it comes to the subject of racism.

If anything history has taught us is that, everyone was a slave and for a large part of time White/Caucasian were the mainstream victims. Long long before the African slave route was discovered and used for slave trade, I think we need to focus on more unity instead of more division.

Yeah the above maybe true but we are not talking of slavery or even Jimcrow a generation ago but stuff that's happening as we speak, massive incarceration is a thing, massive police harassment of minorities with the eventual killings of unarmed suspects is a thing, that this has been an on going problem and until folks like BLM started making a stink about it no one that matters could gave a good gat damn.

Hi Spider,

Just concerning your last point, is the mass incarceration not a reflection of the mass offending rates? (USA only). The reasons behind why offending rates are so high is certainly open for debate (poverty) but surely the incarceration itself is simply a reflection of the fact that more blacks are committing offences?

Flavian not really man, we have on record by cops themselves that they targeted blacks, and the whole war on drugs is a big part of that where whites and Blacks used or deal drugs at the same rate but Black/and Latinos are 7 times more likely to be arrested and with stiffer penalties.

Just saying.

I don't know mate. It just seems obvious that you get higher crime rates in poor areas (many sociological studies back this up). As many blacks live (d) in poor areas in the USA, you would naturally expect them to have higher arrest levels. That in and of itslef isn't therefore racist.

What you certainly could argue is racist (and i would certainly make this argument), is why so many blacks live in these poorer areas.

Overall though, i feel the only way to resolve this issue is to simply draw a line and move on to a position of inclusion. For any party to constantly dredge up past errors and mistakes is to constantly create extra friction.

That isn't to undermine racism. It is frankly abhorrent that people hate others simply because of the colour of their skin, or their religion, or even the way they dress. More that we never move on unless we actually do just that - move on and punish those that refuse to comply (whatever "race" they happen to be).

I know drug dealers and I'm not proud of that but it was part of life growing up in my community and one if the things I noticed is that black and Latinos are more open about it due the cultural difference.

Now I'm not saying they aren't targeted but theres two sides to every coin.

The white guys I know like bikers are mode covert and they are highly highly targeted.

The black and latibo guys around do it out in the open.

Would that also be playing a roll?

There's plenty of examples of racism toward whites and Europeans sinlky denying it's existence doesn't make it any less true.

It's exactly like the posts above with myself and spider...

He higights issues with the black community that I see both sides too and acknowledge that yes there is oppression but there is also responsibility.

The part that gets me is your complete denial of the mainstream assault on white men and European and Western culture.

Sorry buddy but it goes both ways.

There is no scientific bases for race. Science has tried for a long time and failed. Which means scientfically there is no such thing as race. But default anyone who thinks race is a real thing is a racist. Socially built into us..

Have some readings




It's a common belief that race can be broken down into three categories: Negroid, Mongoloid and Caucasoid. But according to science, that's not so. While the American concept of race took off in the late 1600s and persists even today, researchers now argue that there’s no scientific basis for race. So, what exactly is race, and what are its origins?

I don't need to have readings science has proven that one race does not empathize with the pain of another

Pretending there's no such thing as race is like pretending theres No such thing as male and female

It's obvious genetically we are built different think different and have different facial features and everything I couldn't care less what that study says.
