Ok, fine. I guess I stand alone on this. I guess everyone here believes that all networks besides BET are ONLY interested in targeting white people. They could give a rats ass about any other race that may be tuning in. They ONLY are speaking to the whites. Right......

My argument was simply this. BET only targets blacks.
You can say other networks target mostly whites but that's not the same thing. If a network came out and was open about only targeting whites, there would be an uproar. No matter what you think, I promise you, there would be an uproar. And that is the point you are all missing. It's an obvious double standard. And it's only one of many, but this is the one ya'll want to argue back with? As if that makes the all the other points invisible?

No. I have never seen blacks discriminated against. Accept by myself and I only threw the "N word" (noone cares) (do they?) I have heard the word cracker,against whites. And the word cracker,I would guess would be the equivelent to "n word". But really it doesnt hurt my feelings at all, if blacks just called me white names.
I dont know if it works differently for black people.

Im sure real race issues happen somewere. Do they?

In my area and in my lifetime all I have witnessed is "cracker" from the blacks and "N word" from the whites.

Nothing more than that.

The truth is that racism toward blacks has decreased significantly over the years, to the point that it is a non-issue for the majority of the race. I think there probably is more discrimination against whites at this point, because if a white person says something or does something, even accidentally, that is remotely racist, all hell will break loose.

Jesse Jackson, who is sometimes a joke, would be there very quickly, and the NAACP would as well. That is the reality. THEY are persecuting white people more than promoting blacks. There should be zero need for anything involving race at all. EVERYONE is equal, and American here in the states...Creating organizations to protect a race that is already free is completely moronic, and all it does is serve to, as I said, persecute "offenders" ie whites, and create more rifts in society. They are doing more harm than good.

id say that white black and asian people are on pretty even footing. if anyones getting the social shaft in america its largely the hispanic populace. however i do feel that there is a double standard against white people. we are made to feel bad for our races past transgressions when in reality there isnt a skin color on earth not guilty of human attrocietys.

"White" is a color. "Caucasian" is the definition of "Race"

Technically the vast majority of North Africans (Berbers in the West, Arabs and Semites in the East) are "Caucasian".

In the Middle East Semites (such as Jordanians, Palestinians, Israeli's, Egyptians) are all Caucasian.
Iranians (Persians) are Caucasians.
Arabs are Caucasian
Turks are Caucasian
And even Indians are in fact a variety of Caucasian.

Technically.. according to DNA research. There being 3 major genetic families, Caucasian, Asian and African.


Interesting, I need to learn more about this subject. So what are Native Americans (aboriginals of the Americas), are they considered and variation of Asians, or Asians mixed with Caucasian? I always thought the Semites were a race of their own with heavy Caucasian mixing.

cracker
whitie
honkey (spelling)
white devil
white ass bitch

Those are just the few I remember the kids at school shouting. Honestly I'm beginning to think the word white is just as bad as the n word at this point. There is so much anger at whites, and frankly I'm tired of it. I just don't care. If you hate me because I'm white, then just go get a life. I'm a quarter American Indian, my grandmother is cherokee, and you don't see me begging for retribution. And no, I'm not collecting a check that I know damn well I could have access to if I wanted it. Handouts are the source of all the problems in this country. No one is taking responsibility for themselves.

i'm a bit cherokee myself, not enough to collect a check but i love the spirit and make custom indian weapons for a hobbie. anyways, the way i feel is that native americans would have just as much of a right to piss and moan as 'minorities' but do they.. i dont hear a damn thing from that side. and for any who want to say anything about casinos and/or reservations f-off.. natives have casinos, blacks have record labels, etc... niether are are doing everything they should for all thier people.

How were the Original Moors white when the meaning of moor means black people. Lol really? I'm suprised at myself for even entertaining that statement. Have you ever read "The Golden Age of The Moors?" Have you ever seen a movie titled "Hidden Colors?" I'm sure you haven't. The Moors were from Africa and were Black. This is a fact of history not an opinion. Again the more you all speak you show and prove the lack of intelligence. Lol hilarious.


Rockpuck is right in that the Berbers were mostly caucasian. There were some Ethiopians among the Moors who invaded Spain and the Iberian peninsula. Berbers are considered indiginous and Arab, Roman, and Pheonician invaded the area. Carthage is a famous historical site where the Pheonicians settled.
Romans were in Spain and Germanic Visigoths settled there. The Moors which were a combination of Arab, indigenous berbers and ethiopians invaded Spain.
Insn't history fun?

700 ad is not that far back in history really. What is the real subject? When I start looking at populations and how they went from one land to another it gets really nuts.

History is replete with invasions and conquests. To not acknowledge that is folly. In the end though we are all expressions of the Divine Spark, no matter what the Mitocondrial differences are. Oh wait, are you atheist?

My point is this black people (all people of color) are the victims of discrimination, prejudice and racisim. SINCE WHEN HAVE THE VICTIMS BEEN THE VICTIMIZERS. When have those who face the most oppression also been able to be the oppressor. How foolish does that sound. To disagree mean that you do not understand the dynamics and structure of racisim. How can the one that is effected the most by racisim also be the rasict. It's a contradiction. That's like saying the slaves can also be the slave master.

Also the moors where black there are literally thousands of sources that document that so there is no reason to even go further on that subject. Just look at some of the videos I've previously posted or read some of the books I suggested. Lets stop dealing with opinions and based off nothing and deal with facts built off history.

Thirdly, if you are european background you can not say how blacks(all people of color) are effected by discrimination, prejudice or racism because you aren't black(all people of color). Your on the outside looking in. It's like attempting to explain the life of a wealthy person and you live in poverty and have never experience wealth. U may have numerous opinions but unless you know what it is like to be black(all people of color) you cant comment on how we are effected by society. Everything has a palarady. Blacks and whites views on discrimination, prejudice and racism are like water and oil. They will never mix. Plane and simple.

Last time I checked there were many blondes among the Germanic peoples.


Germanic peoples were known to the Romans since the second century B.C.E. and despite many differences, the two groups did co-exist relatively peacefully. Many Germans had been allowed to cross the border, and they settled as farmers and slaves. Some even became soldiers in the imperial army. The Germans admired what was worthy in Roman civilization and the Romans admired the physical strength and the simplicity of values of the Germans. The Roman historian Tactius (c. C.E. 55 - 117) provides one of the best descriptions of the Germans in his Germania.


The Visigoths, led by a capable king named Alaric, turned from Constantinople and proceeded south, sacking Greece, and then turned westward toward the Adriatic. They attacked Italy and sacked Rome in 410, an event that deeply shocked the inhabitants of the empire. Under Alaric's successors, the Visigoths moved across Gaul. They settled in Aquitaine in 418 and thus established the first Germanic kingdom on Roman territory. The Visigoths then moved into Spain, where they founded a second kingdom at Toledo that lasted until the Muslim invasions of the eighth century.


www.ucalgary.ca...


The Nordic race is one of the racial subcategories into which the Caucasian race was divided by anthropologists in the first half of the 20th century. People in this category were described as having blond or brown hair, light colored eyes, aquiline noses and tall stature, and were considered to predominate in countries of Northern Europe and some parts of Southern European countries (Northern Italy etc.) due to the Great Migration. The notion is today considered ideological rather than scientific.[1]



Spanish Queen Isabella I of Castile shows "Nordic" characteristics: blonde hair, blue eyes, and pale skin

en.wikipedia.org...

I might add that blonde in berber lexicon is not the same as the blonde in Nordic lexicon. Berbers were still darker than the Nordic races, yet are still considered to be of caucasoid origin.

So I hope this serves as a lesson for your ego.
