I'm sure it's been mentioned, but, everywhere is not the USA where it's just an issue of black, white, hispanic.

Racism is everywhere, all over the planet.

There are Black people on the African Continent that are entirely racist against other black people. It's not over resources, geography, or anything but more racial.
Racism in Africa

It happens in the Middle East: Racism in the Middle East. We see alot of Jew vs. Arab tension in the Western media, but, there's tribe vs. tribe, Kurds, Palestinians, Persians, Egyptians, Nomads, and all sorts.

There's Racism in Asia.
The Khmer Rouge was all about the decimation of ethic minorities in Cambodia.
Anti-Japanese sentiments have deep roots in China.
Japanese are often accused of racist attitudes due an old cultural xenophobia toward foreigners.

Racism is everywhere, all over the place, except, perhaps Antarctica, the North pole, The Moon, the bottoms of our oceans, and other places there are no people.

Warning: This post is covered in SARCASM and people with allergies should not consume it.

Explanation: It is 100% true that only white adult males can be racist.


Because slaves are not allowed to have any opinions and if they do illegally have an opinion ... it doesnt count!


Personal Disclosure: It is all about entitlements ... and ONLY white adult males are entitled to them ok!

Hold your tongue boy, and don't ever speak for me, you don't know me. If you wanna be racist go ahead and knock yourself out, (or at least until someone does it for you)

I'm confused as why you linked this to me in the first place. It had absolutely nothing to do with what I was saying. The whole reason I linked the hate crime statistics was to prove the OP wrong, that black people do get prosecuted for hate crimes, just like white people.

I'm pretty sure you do agree with their view or you wouldn't be linking it as an accurate source. You would just link straight up statistics, not some white supremacist cookbook.

If you want to randomly start a rant about how black people are criminals you can go on over to stormfront with all the other inbreds.

I have observed non whites expressing racism toward whites and other races, so no. Whites are not the only ones capable of racism. Our ego is at the root of all the mess.

Funny thing your skin depends on race and star system. Whites are actually very very pale blue, but on earth they are mixed a lot of the million or so years the races have been on earth my friends, the star also adds to tinge of colour. Funny thing is the chances you have lived a life in each atleast, I have lived over 500 lives on earth alone.

Ps that's the way old history books paint Vishnu and Krishna etc blue, when Vishnu first arrived here from 8d pleadies which was a blue star system that colour starts changing when they arrived here as our sun started to change that skin colour.

Love all my brothers and sisters on earth love frenzy

Yeah whites are not the only racist but a lot of people in this thread are.

I find that funny they are in defense of racism is not only a white thing.


I wanted to read more of the thread before answering some posts but this one has to be the most narrow minded one of all.
I read all the posts up to this one and did not find any of them racist.
I saw some that told obvious truths based on experience in a very diplomatic way, I found very good examples of how other races can also be racist but not one on here was an actual racist post.

So I would love to hear from you who you think is racist?
What do you base being racist on?
Do you even know what racism actually means or do you incorporate 'having an opinion' as racist? I have to clarify that people are still allowed by law to have their own thoughts [not for much longer I fear].

I believe truly and strongly that NONE of the posters you believe to be racist are actually doing any harm to other races, spit in their faces, call them names or burn their houses down. I will even go as far as to say that all of us have worked with people of all creeds and colours and have maintained a civil relationship together.

However if someone somewhere may not get on with hispanics or anyone else, they don't have to.
They are ALLOWED to NOT love and cherish every person ever on earth, for whatever reason makes sense to them, without being called a rather involved name by people like you.
All you do is exactly what you think racists are doing [picking needlessly on a certain group pf people], the only difference is that the people you concentrate on insulting are your imaginary 'racists'.

So how dare you say that a lot of people on this thread are racist?
If that isn't some kind of massively ignorant prejudice in its own right than I am at a loss.

Black is a politically charged term so I refuse to use it. Ironically the NAACP uses the term "colored" to describe negroes. I don't use that word either but if I did I would surely be roundly criticized.

So, every 'negro' person I know is racist to some degree or another - even friends with whom I associate frequently. I don't really care, and as long as it doesn't spill over into the conversation its a moot point.

I do notice though that when I am in their company - say one on one all is well. As soon as I encounter those same people talking in a group amongst themselves and I happen by - guess what? You got it! Is that racist? Your damn right it is.

So now I have to ask myself - Am I a racist under the same terms and conditions? Hmmmmmmm

EDIT-

It is indeed a fact that whites are most commonly cited as "racists", "being racist" or accused of racism in mainstream society, while it is unheard of for a nonwhite (black, hispanic, etc) to be deemed/accused of such (the above)- against whites in particular. It is always a white accused of being racist against a nonwhite group, it is NEVER a nonwhite being accused of racism towards white people, although nonwhites are in fact racist against whites at times as well.

Mainstream society would have you think that while whites are capable of racism against nonwhites, whites themselves can not be victims to racism from non-whites. Is this true? Are only whites capable of racism? Can whites NOT be victim to racism from nonwhites?

Sure...it's possible.

It's just that white racism against nonwhites occurs about 40 million times more frequently AND because whites still hold the preponderance of power in society, thus they are usually the one's who HAVE THE ABILITY to actually DISCRIMINATE based upon their backwards views of the world.

That's why you hear so much about it.

However...you ARE correct. It IS POSSIBLE for nonwhites to also be racist...just as it's possible to win the powerball jackpot, get hit by lighting, or win at a casino at the casino in the long term.

....it's just not very damn PROBABLE or PLAUSIBLE.

That's the point. Obama will never be capable of racism because he is half a member of a protected class. So even as president he is still an "oppressed minority". Making him incapable of racism.


Plus don't forget...he ALSO hasn't done or said a single thing while in office which indicates that he in any way actually has any sort of racist beliefs whatsoever.

Perhaps the reason he won't be labeled a racist is because HE ISN'T A RACIST???

Sometimes the simplest hypothesis is the best.

It's also not very prevalent in the upper two quartiles of the Stanford-Binet either.

The Arab word for 'black' translates into the word 'slave' It is legal to own slaves in at least Arabic country, just cannot get the spelling right. (Mauritius? or its Mauritania).
As regards the Negro's being shipped to the America's, were, in the first instance collected from their tribes by Arab slavers, the tribal chief picked out those to be 'sold' to the slavers for salt, the Arab slavers then sold them on at the coast in exchange for gold and longarms and black powder (original name for 'gunpowder')

Many of my favorite comedians over the years have addressed the social issue of racism and all its nuances.One contemporary example is " Cracker Can't Say Sh*t" by Craig Shoemaker:

Because you cited "hate crime" as “proof” of anything. Hate Crime is an irrelevant and contrived PC category of crime that proves nothing... Crime is crime.

Hate is a feeling. How do you prove what one was feeling during the commission of a crime? I don’t know about you but I am curious how one proves what one was thinking at the time they commit a crime. I find that to be something completely impossible to determine absent the admission on the part of the perpetrator.


Hate:
1 a: intense hostility and aversion usually deriving from fear, anger, or sense of injury b: extreme dislike or antipathy : LOATHING

Hate Crime:
: any of various crimes (as assault or defacement of property) when motivated by hostility to the victim as a member of a group (as one based on color, creed, gender, or sexual orientation)

My point was to counter the data you reported – pretty simple.

Since you think “hate crime” is a valid thing I don’t find it surprising at all you claim to be able to ascertain what I think or believe.

The statements made are simply true – the fact is you just don't like the sources politics, the numbers are sound. Idon't aspouse their white supremacy either. However, the math behind the statements they make are simply true. Again, if you want to get out your calculator and go through the data and prove them wrong feel free. The truth is often uncomfortable to hear.

If you want to prove the statistics cited as wrong or incorrect feel free – attacking me and the source (who complied their statements based on DOJ statistics and numbers) feel free to do so. All the cool people are attacking the source of the facts these days if they can’t manage to dispute them.

To call me an “inbred” is simply base and infantile and doesn’t do much to dispute the facts.

Racism again the very race you belong to is surely also racism. A mulatto is neither negro nor white; they are a race of their own. So have I been taught.

Absolutely irrelevant to what the point I was making. Your personal feeling towards hate crimes make absolutely no difference to the fact that black people get persecuted for hate crimes just like white people do. The last sentence proves the whole premise of the OP wrong. The prosecution has to have evidence that the crime was motivated by race,gender, religion, etc. If not you will just be prosecuted with regular charges. And just because an interracial crime takes place, that does not mean it is a hate crime, like many racist people like to think for whatever reason.

You didn't counter anything, because once again, completely irrelevant to the point I was making.



However, the math behind the statements they make are simply true.


Except it isn't.

You didn't link any statistics other than from white nationalist propaganda. You linked a random link to the DOJ which did not co-inside with any of the text you copied and pasted from stormfront. Not to mention it was debunked on the last page which you completely ignored.


Lies About Hate Crimes — More Fun With Racist Math

Taylor’s claims regarding hate crimes are even more ridiculous. So, for example, The Color of Crime asserts that blacks commit a disproportionate share of racial and ethnic hate crimes against whites, while white-on-black hate crimes are far less frequent. But the data simply doesn’t support such a claim.

From 1995-2000, blacks were 65 percent of racial and ethnic hate-crime victims, while whites were 21 percent of such victims (10). Adjusted for population, any given black person was nearly twenty times more likely to be the victim of a racially motivated hate crime than any given white. In 2001, there were approximately 4.6 times more white-on-black than black-on-white hate crimes (11), despite the fact that whites were between six and seven times more available in the population to become victims. Considering that blacks are much more likely to encounter whites than vice-versa, this last statistic is especially alarming. After all, if blacks are nineteen times more likely to encounter whites than whites are to encounter blacks, any given black person would have nineteen times more opportunities to commit an anti-white hate crime than a white person would have to commit an anti-black hate crime.

Since blacks are roughly one-sixth the size of the non-Hispanic white population, in order to determine the expected ratio of black-on-white hate crimes relative to white-on-black hate crimes given random chance, one must multiply the 19:1 black-on-white encounter ratio by one-sixth. Once this computation is made, we find that differential rates of encounter and population availability would predict that if levels of racial hatred were equal between whites and blacks, and the willingness to commit a hate crime were equal between the two groups, in any given year there should be 3.15 times more black-on-white hate crimes than white-on-black hate crimes. That in truth there are nearly five times more white-on-black hate crimes than the reverse suggests that blacks are much less likely to commit an anti-white hate crime than would be expected and whites are far more likely to commit an anti-black hate crime than would be expected.

I don't really care either way, I'm not obsessed with crime rates by race, as you seem to be. Start seeing people as human.
