Interesting game, the only winning move is to not play at all.
Exactly, so why play into that game at all?

I favor my own race and im not ashamed to admit it. I think everybody does to a point. The Blacks never seem to miss a chance to play the race card
and hispanics don't respect this country at all.
You sure do generalize a lot, do you really feel ALL Blacks play the race card and ALL Hispanics don't respect this country? To me that seems silly to
say, but judging by the amount of stars you received I assume many others feel this same way. Kind of sad imo, does anyone else want to address what
jstanthrno1 has said?

I think this is a growing trend around America right now amongst younger urban white kids, you are not alone. I don't think it is bad to not identify
yourself as "White" if you don't want to, as long it isn't out of hatred for your White heritage but rather out of your dislike for categorical
definitions. That would mean don't identify with any one group or any one thing, but rather everything as a whole. Peace.

Thank you for that story and I am sorry you and your family had to suffer through those things. You say there is no racism here on ATS, maybe you are
referring to racism against White people? Or maybe you are so use to extreme forms of racism that is more physical in nature and thus overlook words
on an internet forum as being racist?

Wow, you make some very astute observations and I agree with everything you said, except the part that I am mixing up prejudice and racism. I am
familiar with both, and like you, I see them as synonyms of each other, except that I see racism as a form of racial prejudice, and the word prejudice
as a more generalizing term. Therefore I still stand by my definition of racism, but thank you for your very insightful post!

I think it is quite obvious you were not being racist, and that she was dealing with a feeling of racial inferiority that caused her to be defensive
and jump to unfounded conclusions. I'm sorry you had to deal with that, hopefully it didn't trigger any hatred or resentment within you for other
races now, as she so obviously suffered from.

In short it's not that I think whites are above everyone else it's that blacks (collectively and culturally) are below everyone else. The facts
support my point of view.
Ok, well I can appreciate your honesty but if you are so keen on facts, would you like to share their history of suffering through European
colonialism, slavery and other outside economical, societal and physical influence/manipulation/war?
Would anyone else like to address the issues Fitch is having?

Well I agree that there is far more religious bigotry on here than racism, but that doesn't discount the fact that many people on here also have
voiced their racist views, this thread stands as a testiment to that, although many of them are still hiding!
Good observations nonetheless my
And no, no one should have to feel "White guilt" because of what their predecessors did , but I do think it is very important to be honest with
yourself about the facts of history.

I believe there is more to "racism" than many are willing to admit.
I think you are right.

Its just a strategy they are using to create divisiveness amongst the population and it appears to be working.
Correct, correct, correct! That is kind of my point for this thread, to show how ridiculous and detrimental these views are for our nation, and
species, as a whole. Thanks buddy.
