i must admit due to the fact america being an immigration country, theres sooo many racist people around its quite shocking
of course everybody knows about america in the 50's/60's, but on the net you see it quite a lot from americans 50 years on (not just ats) i go on many chat forums and about 20 mins ago actaully ive just saw a white american male saying "its probably a negro" talking about a picture of a white women holding her baby, because she's censored the babys face out.
in england we don't really see too much of it, of course some european countrys are quite racist spain for one, but in england it isn't really an issue.

If they don't get the welfare then they cry discrimination or that you people are holding us back, to which I think....WHAT!
The USA still has many many opportunities everywhere to be found, but people don't want to work a crappy job because it is below them.
Why is it that every race, religion, etc that has come to the USA in the past 100 years seems to do better than the african-americans that whine about everything?
Somewhere along the line everyone is at the bottom. The only person that holds an individual back is personal choices.

i don't get your point, nowhere in your post it covers the main issue of this thread and that is 'racism'.

Great post Realtruth.
Maybe off-topic somewhat, but I'm not willing to eliminate all forms of affirmative action until universities stop dishing out preferences for legacies (daddy attended so daddy's boy gets preference). This is a clear advantage based on social status.

What? That is disgusting.
So its just white people that are inherently racist and should be ashamed of themselves?
There are built in prejudices in society, yes..since the dawn of time in-fact. Every person on earth, from whatever race, will feel more confident around their own. There is scientific proof behind this.
Why have you singled out white people in your rant. And then you have gone on to suggest it is a vast corporate conspiracy.
There is a massive problems with crime within black communities, due to low educational attainment, communities concentrated in poorer areas etc (and don't try and claim that white teachers fail them, i've seen teachers spat at daily and they've still tried their best to give kids a right to an education)
In my experiences there are a lot of people from ethnic miniorities that are more outwardly racist, as they are allowed to be by the PC brigade.

You are right in that many problems that exist in the Black community are self inflicted, and that many minorities harbor racist attitudes, and yes a double standard does exist. I am not speaking about racism in general, but a particular type of racism, an irrational fear of Black people and other minorities. The fact some Black person can call me a honkey or cracker with little risk of censure, or that a particular Black person is poor because they chose to drop out of high school is not what this thread is about.
This thread is about the White person who travels spends four hours a day driving, because consciously or unconsciously, he is trying to avoid Blacks, Hispanics, Arabs, or other minorities. This thread is about the white person that is willing to give up his rights and live in a police state, out of fear of being a victim of a crime perpetrated by minorities like Minority gang members or Islamic terrorists.
