YES. Asians rule the world. SWAG = Something We Asians Got .

But, really, NO I'm just, kidding...*starts dodging bullets*

Come on guys, I'm asian, live in a Western World, but meet people with major "superiority" issues (including my own race) in all walks of life. Me personally, it's nothing, if you wanna be so insecure about something, that you have to prove it, then...whatever.

With some caucasian (even the word "asian" is in it, damn how we rule..
) people, you'll get it...But with some black people, you'll get it...Some Latino people, you will get it.

You're gonna get a superiority complex with people in EVERY race.

So I'd rather hang with a "white" guy, than with an "asian" guy with superiority complex...Or hang with a black guy, rather than a hispanic with raging testosterones, who thinks he's better than everybody else.

Can you say troll thread, much?

OP needs to chill the fudge out, this is real naive & stereotypical thinking.

Using movies as an example of black victimization is a very bad example. In my opinion, the media has swung 180 degrees in the opposite direction. I agree, back in the 50's and 60's the black man was always portraid as cowardly or stupid, but that treatment is long gone. Today, most of the heroes in the movies are black. If you will notice the number of presidents that are black in the movies. Both TV and cinema seem to always have the head guy as a black guy. If its a doctor show, the head of the hospital is black. Same for lawyers and cop shows. The media now bends over backward to push blacks as achievers in society. Anyone complaining of media treatment of blacks is a fool or a denier that would rather play the poor victim role in life.

I don't think you will get any white person admitting that they have a superiority complex. It's very possible that most people have some sort of superiority complex in regards to their heritage and ethnic background. I'm I don't have these allegiances. I could care less. And certain extent I do think I'm more objective when it comes to these subjects. From my personal observation however, it's almost always the men that are stubborn in their archaic views of the world and have this superiority complex that you speak of.

Anytime someone blames all their troubles on somebody else, I stop listening.

You DO realize that America isn't the only country with white people in it,correct?

This is just (yet) another America-bashing thread thinly (and poorly) disguised as some deep, meaningful social commentary.......

That laugh icon was a small indicator that I wasn't 100% serious. I'm well aware of the forward strides. I've benefited from them personally, so yes, you're right. But, in this town, there are a seperate set of rules for actors of color. it's usually one strike, you're out. we don't get to be lindsey lohan. one # up, you're gone. you can call it race, or demographics. black shows tend not to bring in the money like shows with predominately white casts, do, so black actors are valued less. It's not written down anywhere, it's just has things work. but, on the larger point the OP makes, I agree. whites have a superiority complex, it's been drummed into you from the get-go. Now, does that mean that I get a pass for any of my struggles? of course not. my deal is my deal. I've never been a "blame whitey" kind of guy, but, what we're discussing does exist. I'll never use it as an excuse for black non-achievement, but it does exist. Hell, I tend to sound more like bill cosby than al sharpton on the subject of blacks in america, which is why a lot of black folks and myself don't get along.
they don't like hearing the truth.

Some white people will tell me how we're all different, everything's okay and I'm just imagining things. Although I know there is much ignorance as many whites consider themselves to be the first/tops with regards to the creation of modern technology, and civilization as we know it. Whites have said they are priviledge in the sense that they let other races into "their" country (USA) to have free food, education and even energy, so hence all the historical oppression of Whites torwards others are to be overlooked or forgotten. White people have changed history and even made the Christian Messiah look White in pictures. They shrunk the size of Africa in their modern maps, they deny that black men are usually the first to die in their films when they're not made to wear dresses, and that black people had anything to do with the creation of alloys used in airplanes, microprocessors to run the first computers, even "brown" people braught color to your TV screen, allowed you to communicate on your phone to your white friends/family all over the world, made cars easier for us to drive, basically pioneered if not greatly improved on Whites contributions to technology, snuggled closely with Asian and Hispanic contributions. IMO, a world only with white people would be half-assed at best.

Some people feel pride in their race as a whole while they may not have personally accomplished much of anything at all. Others believe that merely because the white race is a minority (skin/hair color), that gives them the right to special treatment, whilst whites make up the multitude of the small percentage of the "stupid rich" out there in the world. White people think they are systematically being "pushed down" by indoctrination in the educational and public realms portraying whites as violent and evil. I'd like to add, perverted. I think that these stereotypes are entirely created by White people against White people, unlike stereotypes against Middle Eastern people which mostly comes from Whites. White people have been behind most of the policies coming out of the U.S. allowing for war in countries of non-whites, including the CIA secret wars, in addition systematic mind-control, experiments and torture of non-whites in their own countries/colonise, along with the European whites taking the lead in the extermination of Native Americans then giving themselves rights to making immigration policies, that deem the indegenous (as in those that came BEFORE white colonisation) as immigrants in their own lands, while Whites are not considered immigrants while by technicallity they are exactly that

Give me a chance as it sounds like I am venting/ranting but I am trying to get somewhere important here with your educated/mild input hopefully. I feel as if White people, atlest in films and songs are going out of their way to try to make themselves look to the rest of the world as the most blood-thirsty, horny, uncontrollable of all types of people (violent), why? Is this a scare/military tactic of domination?

I want to say I took my sarcastic shot at this o.p. earlier (around page 8)but I'd like to know how o.p. squares this last boldedcomment( (uncontrollable/violent) with:

"Dem dogs":

MOSTLY violent, foul language; threatening gunplay; and black people: but not every black person.As such it would be utterly racist to say black people are all like "'dis he-ah". To say" I do not find this display of behavior "unsettling" would be a lie.

These are people I would not live around. Not because they are black; but because they are frighteningly dangerous idiots.
I present "dem dogs"..

O.P.comments( violent and uncontrollable enough for you?)????

Additionally, people of other races have an enormous contribution to our modern way of life, so because White Americans lead the wolrd in Porn and Mind-Control, they're trying to make others forget the responsiblities they have for the damages they've caused humanity, IMO, which I hope I'm still entitled to so long as I am not being belligerent. It is possible the discrimination during the civil rights times played a role in the priviledge other whites have today. They got to keep inheritences and the like black (asian, even hispanic) people just were never able to accumulate and so their children are not nearly as well off, with better schools, better living communities, chance for a better future, etc.

I heard a military higher-up say we needed to kill all the brown people before their little trip to Iraq, meanwhile the very microphones that were used to order soldiers around, killing even innocent civilians, much of this technology came right from the minds/hearts/hard-working hands of the very brown people they want dead. How can this ignorance and ingratitude be tied so closely together? How is this all happening? Where do we start to make this stop???

I read that non-whites ---allow--- "us" immigrants into this country, while as discussed above Native Americans were in the area long before whites, and so Whites should be the ones considered "immigrants"... I think this is where some of the problems stem, that White Americans think they're entitled to this land or rock just because they technically stole it ??? and so can do what they please, whereever they please to whomever they please as long as they can get most the wealth to themselves.... while using technology to do so and pretending their the ones who were solely behind even the technologies. They're at a very high place (mentally only) and if I were brainwashed, in that same mental place I'd think myself entitled too... I wouldn't know where to stop either because there wouldn't be any boundries'/limits for me, we have to wake them up before we're all good and gone because of them, and find a way so that they know there are limits/boundries that their history with evil deeds will not be forgotten, or freemason-overwritten. Do you think that white people are using black people with disinfo to make whites look superior, like giving Obama war-making powers and disinfo to take on wars? I think this is my first ATS post, please give me some credit for the effort, and I mean no disrespect to any race, nor do I feel comfortable telling you my race so that you don't think I am bias, I think I am making a very obvious observation and I hope you can help and not ban me or my question.

Obvious racist troll-bait thread is obvious. Only reason I post here is because:

1) Everyone is (mildly to severely) racist in one form or another. Just be honest. It's a primordial thing duh.

2) We all (even the most vehement racists among us) have very good friends and family who are of different races, even ones we claim to not like. We would probably risk our lives or money to help them in many cases, because we are humans (most of us).

3) We should shut up about it because it is a divide-and-conquer strategy by TPTB to keep us not focused on what they are doing to ALL OF US.

However, it seems some types of racist troll-baiting are tolerated for longer that others in some forums, n'est-ce pas?

You are painting a group of individuals with a broad brush. Throughout my entire 30+ years of life, I have lived in a color blind state of mind. I had the honor of learning my field of study from a diverse set of individuals. African, Indian, Japanese, Chinese, Irish, etc...

Personally, I do not see people based upon their melanin levels. When I look into another individual's eyes, I see a flesh and blood human being seeking their place in life. Even though we come from a wide variety of cultures, we all belong to 'one overall human race'.

You either belong to 'the human race', or you are some strange alien from another planet.

What say you?

Do you belong to the 'human race', or do you like spewing divisive rhetorical nonsense?

Also, when it comes to the whole movies argument, actors freely choose what parts they want to play. If the actor has a problem with a specific character, they can freely sign up for another movie or show. Its that simple.

Welcome to the new millennium.

Welcome to 'the human race'.

Every race has their section of racists.

It's unavoidable.

I think your claims are farfetched, there are good people in every race and bad people in every race. And I don't claim that Jesus was white because I'm white, I claim he's white because the bible says that he was Jewish.

1) We are all human beings.
2) All races have contributed both positively and negatively to the planet.
3) The U.S.A. is a "melting pot", and the only problem I see is when groups do NOT "melt", but rather want to bring the same crappy culture with them that they left.
4) White people don't own the U.S.A., see #3 for more details.
5) I think your post is race baiting.
6) Illegal means ILLEGAL. It's NOT a race, no matter how many times you loony leftists try and make it mean that.
7) Anyone, and I mean ANYONE is welcome in the United States, just as long as you (a) do it LEGALLY and (b) assimilate into OUR culture.
8) Don't bring up the Native American rhetoric. It's in the past, it's done. This is 2011, deal with it. Blacks aren't slaves (at least not anywhere in North America), Native Americans aren't being killed by the Army, and the Crusades ended a LONG, LONG time ago. Join the 21st century.
9) A nation without borders is NOT a nation. Those who want the borders gone, are one world government supporters. Period.

In all honesty I can understand where the OP is coming from, but at the same time I disagree
Let me explain

White people have brought slaves here then the sons of slave owners tell the sons of slaves "go back to Africa"
I can understand where the OP is coming from, but understand white people have alot of weight to carry
It's not the fault of the sons of slave owners, the sins of the father do not get passed on to the sons
Also not all white people say to go back to Africa, in fact such racist people probably represent a small minority

White people colonized this land through murder and theft, then set up a legal system where they catch murderers and thieves when this very land was built on murder and theft and some show hatred towards new immigrants.
But it is what it is though, we have to progress as a nation despite the past history

There are many more such examples, I can go on and on and on

But today's white racists represent a very small part of society, so you cannot condemn the large majoirty
It just doesn't make mathematical sense

Why did I make this post in this fashion
So both sides of the fence realize both sides have their views, now let's meet in the middle

We can't change history but we can define the future

Here we go, yet another thread dedicated to seperating people and bring about racist arguments. Here's the deal guy:

Every race has that a-hole.
Every race has that nice guy.
Every race has that smart dude.
Every race has an instigator.
Every race is HUMAN.

Thank you ladies and gentlemen, please have a LOVELY evening.

I try to promote unity rather than division where and when I can, so I will state my personal beliefs and then move on, as these problems are not going to vanish overnight sadly.

I believe we are all human first, as others have said. I believe in fellowship and compassion between all people. I believe in tolerance, forbearance, equality, and mutual respect between all people. I acknowledge that tyranny, oppression, and inequality do exist in the world, and long for the day when they do not, but also know that day will be long in coming, if ever. I do not believe myself superior to any other human being walking the face of the Earth. I hold no enmity toward any person or group.

And that's all I can really say.
