Would that be Todd Ramirez? He lives 2 house down and works at the tire store. Or are you making racial assumptions that Hispanic people only have first names like Juan, and Miguel???

Social responses do not determine what racism is.


Then how can racism only be determined by one person imposing superiority over another if their social standpoints are on the subject? If you made the watermelon comment to someone in the middle of the Congo I doubt he would be offended.


The world has been conditioned to see racists everywhere they look and thus react.


To a degree I think that is correct. People are quick to yell 'racist' but that does not mean that it does not exist.


The watermelon comment is I think racist, anyway, because it is being used not to describe reality but to infer black people are from the jungle. i.e. less developed and inferior.


That is not the reason.

Probably a good idea seeing how ridiculous it is to claim everyone is racist.
Maybe the OP is just bored and seeking amusement?


The OP is bothered by his own racism and is curious if other people are willing to accept that they may not have left their tribalistic tendencies behind as much as they would have like to.

I don't drink or smoke. Or work. I'm a stay at home mom. We pay exactly 80$ month for cell. And we have used vehicles. We can't go out to eat cause my son has allergies. We don't have cable. We rent a home. But I'm telling you our bills are our insane.
So I guess you can do it.. Wow you have a lot of kids.. But I suppose everyone is diff.. I've been through 3 vehicles within 3 yrs.. The first one I was wrecked into and the second one broke.. We can't get assistance cause he makes 200$ too much..
Glad you can do it. We are frugle for sure. And it's hard. And we are off topic ..


If we could not look at skin color and only look at what's inside .. That would be awesome.. We are all one ..

Im not racist, but i am prejudiced. Its a result of having life experiences, and having a human brain with which to process those experiences. My prejudices are easily overcome through positive reinforcement, though. So don't take it personally if im stand offish when you get off a Harley with your gang colors on. But if you're polite, you will see that i'll warm up real quick.

I think as far as race goes, the only "race" not represetned in my family would be southeast asian and maori. My nephew is about to marry this girl from India, so we've just about got all bases covered at our gatherings.

Are the Jews a race or a religion? I think maybe they're the
least likely to be racist. Uhps, forgot about the black Jews.
If skin color defines race then I guess being a mixed breed
has nothing to do with it. Shouldn't it be Mixico? Are white
people really a demon race? Why do oriental people have
languages that sounds like they're speaking from a completely
different dimension? Why do the Native Americans get
casinos again? Arabs now there's a religious pack of racists.


Now if I spend enough time pondering all this I won't have time
to be a racist. We're all racists and being aware of a problem is the
first step to solving it. Or just ignore it and maybe the problem
will go away all together.

We're stuck with it. It isn't go'n anywhere. So accept the flaw in
ourselves and move on. Constantly conscious of it so it no longer
gets the better of us. Isn't the only thing we have to do is be nice?
IDK

I am less racist than my mother was....
and my kids are less racist than me.
so, I think we are on the right track, at least in my family.

but, you can be racist and not be a total jerk about it.
and, allow your racism to fade away once you get to know the person and find that they are really decent people, and maybe someone you could learn quite a bit from if you allow it to happen.
and, well, still cross the street when you see a group of african american young adults walking your way on the sidewalk with their pants hanging halfway down their butt. although, if you were to see that same group walking down the street in a suit carrying a briefcase, you might not cross the street, so maybe it isn't a matter or race as much as judging people in general based on their walk, dress, tone of voice, ect. I don't know, if it's dark out, I will probably cross the street is I see any man walking down the street...
does that make me sexist also? or just overly cautious.

Nice, I can handle the maori (pronounce it Moldy).

But as a multicultural person I'm sure you're xmas dinners have lot's of racial slurs said with love.

Forget about black presidents, when Slim Shady can drop a N***** we will see progress.

i cook a lot of korean food due to my aunt. I grew up always looking forward to the dinners at her house. And then there's the mexican food. I also cook quite a bit of hungarian style dishes that I learned from my grandfather.

Imagine a restaurant specializing in kongnamool, chicken paprikash, and tacos. LOL

Nope, everything I have posted in this thread has been honest.
It appears you only disagree because it doesn't fit with your projected personal narrative.

Totally, that's my point.
You can't judge other people's racism whilst ignoring your own.

How you phrased the question probably makes you racist, with sexist a close second. And cautious third.

Cheers for another honest answer.

First, you need a definition of racism

I google it and this was the first result "the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races."

A child asking a person why their skin color is dark is not racist, it is just curiosity

However in today's society if you ask any question that may be insensitive, you will immediately be branded a racist

Just my two cents to the conversation

Ah, that's exactly how I taught my now adult son.
Race is a non issue in my world, I don't know anyone who expresses racist sympathies, and to be honest I just don't get it.
I must live in a bubble.


In your world you may put money on a 100M race at a pub. Will you back the cracker?

not really....
at least I don't see it that way.
I was molested at a very young age by someone...who was white, that was trusted by my family I imagine since well, they trusted the person to leave me in their care...
so this tells me that regardless of appearance, or race...
you're vulnerable when it comes to men walking down a dark empty street. It's will take alot of time before I will feel easy with being alone for you.

I'm not sure what a 'cracker' is and I can't be arsed Googling it, but in answer to your silly question, if I ever bet I make my decision based on odds and form.
What point are you trying to make now?

So you want us all to admit we are racist? Am I getting this straight? And then that will get us a star and thumbs up ?????

Holy cow batman ..

I grew up with all racists .. If you had read on back in a comment I left .. My great grand dad, my grandma, and dad.. I choose to not be racist. I believe we are all one with diff cultures. And all we need is love.. I'm very confused about this now.. Why would anyone want to breed hate when we can breed love.. ?

Ouch, unfortunately it's surprisingly common.

I do apologise tho. You would surely be cautious first, sexist second and racist last.
