Firstly;

racism
ˈreɪsɪz(ə)m/
noun: racism

prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior.

Emphasis by me.

I am not racist. I do not believe that my race is superior, end of story. Continuously telling me that I am racist is not going to make me racist, regardless of how hard you try.

But there is a program to be aired on SBS in Australia tonight that's going to tell me that I am in fact, contrary to what I know about myself, a filthy racist prick.

Feel Free To Check It Out

Why ?, because the opening definition of racism isn't good enough anymore. Racist people have realised that there are just too few racist people on the planet, so they need to make more so they can justify their pitiful racist attitudes and existence.

Enter the Implicit Association Test (IAT) described in short as;



developed by scientists as a way to look at people’s unconscious biases – including those about race and gender. Using a variety of images, it usually measures a person's attitude to a concept by determining an automatic association between the mental representation of the subject matter and our memory.


This is going to be the new definition of racism, and it's about to be rammed down your throat, even in the face of;



Scientists don’t all agree on how reliable it is – they’ve warned against using the test to inform policy or other major decisions. It’s important that users don’t try and over-interpret their results


To those who may subscribe to IAT, I can only say GFY.

P.S. I passed the video test.

Well the racism becomes self justified when the elect leader wins based on popular vote..

I believe that people should be able to vote in the name of democracy, if they choose violence and death over peace.. Its their choice, i just hope they understand the actions of those choices..

Cheers for the post but I won't watch that program. These televised events are becoming all too frequent. Even the UN got into it a few years back describing Aus as the most racist country in the world.

Tired of hearing how racist I am.

Maybe they should turn their attention to the other races/religions in our multicultural country and how those are in conflict with each other rather than focusing on the Caucasians all the time.

Like you, simply put, I don't consider myself racist.

kind regards,

bally

So when someone offers you a different view, than your own, you want them to be gone,,

You know how Trump won, nothing he said made sense, but saying " F# Yeah, Make AMERICA GREAT works like magic, it was a non-stop rant for over a year..
In society there is something called a dialogue, in nature its survival,, Society is not about survival..

They look like normal human types.

I'm not surprised you've never met one, there just aren't that many, but they're trying to change that.

Whenever someone starts with promoting their race,no matter of what it is,that would be a promotion of racism,so anyone that promotes their own race is a racist,people are individuals,racist's put them in category's

There are loads of racists, stop being so holy.

Many of them from the wonderful third world you think so highly of.

People don't jump up and say, "Yo! I'm here!"

They tolerate.

Or else become terrorists.

We are one species as proved by inter-racial breeding.
I believe certain cultures adhere to old laws and by definition practitioners of those cultures are therefore incompetent, including certain religious practices.

But to think one race is better than all the rest, now that's real stupid.

You need to ignore the labels. They are routinely applied to anyone who disagrees and, so, have lost all relevance.

The people who throw these labels around are poorly educated. I met such a person recently, a Millennial. She had no idea who Winston Churchill was, which is stunning.

Nothing they say matters.

Trump won because it was a proven fact Hillary sold out America to the highest bidder with pay 4 play and she was caught doing it.

I've never had too very much sympathy for Australians. You live in a damn near all white country with horrendously difficult immigration rules so its kind of hard for me to understand why this would even be a topic of discussion in Australia. To double check I found this website and it told me the Demographic breakdown for Australia:
www.indexmundi.com...

English 25.9%, Australian 25.4%, Irish 7.5%, Scottish 6.4%, Italian 3.3%, German 3.2%, Chinese 3.1%, Indian 1.4%, Greek 1.4%, Dutch 1.2%, other 15.8% (includes Australian aboriginal .5%), unspecified 5.4%


In the US all white males are presumed to be racist and that's been the case for decades now, so its a little difficult for me to sympathize with your problem that is basically that you don't get to decide if your a racist or not.

But here's the deal and I hope this perspective helps you out a bit. From the article you linked:


It’s crucial that we, as a society, understand and acknowledge that that racism as a whole is a complex cultural phenomenon. What the IAT allows us to do is to start us on the path of basically taking a long hard look at ourselves.


Now, sit back and ask yourself......"Why is it crucial that we as a society understand and acknowledge...."?
Put another way.......assuming your white, what do you give a #hit? Its not YOUR problem. No one's yet discriminating against you. And further ask yourself who is the "we" that makes up this so-called "society"? If you don't regularly sleep and eat with Black people, you aren't a member of the society that is! If all of your close friends and family are white and you can get along with Blacks in your work place, (all what, 2 of them?), you are participating in a wholly different "society" than the one they are talking to and about!

Solution? Keep to your people and when others call you out as a racist, simply acknowledge and own your racism and then give them the "look" of "So What? I'm not TALKING to you!" and walk away. That pretty much disarms the whole "you are a racist" claims we in the US have had to live with for years and will have to live with for the rest of our lives.

Good luck............Down Under.

Try being an American being opposed to a half-black president's agenda.

Or, supporting Trump over Hillary (even though I voted third-party because both of them suck) because I didn't want the same agenda for at least another four years.

The MSM is trying to cause trouble by making everyone think someone is out to get them. It's like some kid trying to get other kids on the playground to fight by going up to one of them and saying, "so-and-so said your mom is fat." And then that kid says,"well his mom is even fatter!"

And then we all start fighting each other.
