I think the issue is that people still believe that racism is just in people's heads, that what they may perceive as being an issue possibly linked
with race, is in their heads and they are the actual racists themselves...If you're white.
Yet this is the problem that so many on here who are going on about racism can't seem to get in to their heads!
My experience with ethnic minorities, on the whole, has not been great. From growing up in a community with majority ethnic minorities, being bullied
at school for being white, neighbours having a go at my mum calling her white bitch, you name it we and other white families we knew suffered it.
Now on to work, I for the most part have worked within the public sector and I have a lot of dealings with inner city communities much like I grew up
in. Now what strikes me as amazing is that there are trash in all races, but there are certain races that really do feel like I, or white people, owe
them a living and use what history they have been brainwashed in to excuse themselves for a)their actions and b) their circumstances.
I then have to look at internal policies in the work place, which blatantly discriminate against white people.
I then listen to family members and friends, some of which are very liberal, or at least were, talk of similar things happening in their work place or
in their area.
Yet in all of this, I never hear outright nasty racist talk, just concerns that white people are getting discriminated against, yet it is this talk
that will then be called racism, because at the end of the day, anti-racist policies and movements seem to be another name for anti-white policies and
Now through all this, you want me to come on here and be all smiles and say we are all one and we all happy? I have had to sit in friend's family get
togethers/occassions, where everyone there, all of colour, are telling each other how better the world would be if there were no white people. I have
had to sit at work and listen to colleagues, who are as friendly and nice as they come, speak in the same manner.
Does this get mentioned on here? No, because that would be racist! Will many of you see this as another bigoted racist post, more than likely.
How on Earth do you expect racism to go away, when too many have this idea that racism is a one way street? That because these white ruled countries
and white man runs these countries and this business and that wealth, that racism can't exist towards whites! How many of you can say that and not
burst in to laughter, while I burst in to tears thinking what kind of future will my children have, if these people who so proclaim to be against
racism, the same people that speak of the entire white race in the same manner that they are apparently against, become the majority, become in places
What difference is it me thinking this way, through all I have experienced, than a black person thinking the way they do, through what they believe to
be historically true, regardless of whether or not they have experienced it? Oh yeah, I'm white and I have exeperienced it.
So you can go on about racism all you want, until its acknowledged as a two way street, until government and society acknowledges this as a two way
street, then racism will continue. My prediction is that ti will continue to be a one way street, because making it a two way street, would be
