This is my first post ever on this site.
First - to the level headed folks, I appreciate your logic at viewing the everyday internet crap comments for exactly what they are...the everyday
spam comments that people just rattle off with the attempts of being funny and not honestly giving their post any thought.
To the OP,
Dude you clearly have a biased view of "black" people. Working in the public and coming BRIEFLY in contact with "vast amounts of people" means nothing
because I'm sure these aren't social gatherings or anything conducive to getting to know a person and drawing a proper conclusion about who they
Also, as polo has stated more than once in the span of this thread there is a HUGE difference about being racist and being prejudice. Racism is a
system of advantage based on race. And you have to ask yourself, who is advantaged by this system, and who is disadvantaged? for MANY years it was
quite clear as to who the system in America favored vs who it didn't. It's not white guilt it is just common sense...after slavery systemic racism was
still very alive in America.
To be prejudice, as most folks are, is what you - THE OP - are. You don't like blacks based on what your mind has determined to be valid perspectives,

say...A Cop... who harasses blacks and uses your power as an officer to exercise your prejudice agenda...then that's racist.
Also, honestly this is just a race baiting type thread. I mean come on one look at the title "Stacy Dash's Comments Outrage The Black Community". One
black "celeb" - I use the term celeb loosely cause she isn't relevant - says they are voting for Romney a couple black twitter followers give her
flack for it...and you connect the dots all the way to the idea that black community is more prejudice than whites?! It's just funny how the minds of
people who claim they are sane, level headed, and use common sense.. turn out to be otherwise.
