Really guys? Every two seconds Im see a post with people race baiting.
Black on white, white on black..ect.

It doesnt matter who is who in terms of color. Those people were either in the wrong place at the wrong time, or someone messed up.

So who cares if they were purple, and beat up someone hot pink. Get over the fact that you race baiting a$$ is getting no play from this guy here!

Im not even going to bring up names of the recent people in the news because this isnt a thread about that! So dont bring that up. The problem with us, is that right there. Some of it isnt even our faults either, blame your parents and the media.

OH and get a friggin life.

Each human is unique and individual. A conglomeration of trillions of cells made up of the very same
stuff that this planet is made of....nothing more...nothing less.

We are all Earthlings in the truest sense of the word.

We should all try to see beyond the color reflected off the outer most layer of cells of our other fellow
human beings....

I will admit to being racist to some extent.
I won't lie about it or try to apologize for it.

The basis for my racism (and I have thought about it long and hard) is I believe a combination of things.
Determining factors I think include my upbringing where my older family members lived in a different time where it wasn't "racism" it's just how the world worked and people thought back then.

Another (I believe) larger reason is life experience and what I have learned and SEEN with my own eyes.

I believe if you are not racist a little then your survival aspects drop in this world. In a perfect world where there was no difference in the races then it may be different but unlike most people I will be brutally honest
about it and say there IS a HUGE difference between races and cultures and there IS a huge racism problem against whites in this country contrary to what the media and society tells you.

I had to defend myself with lethal force against a black man who wanted to "cut me up" because I was white, no other reason.

I have been on the ground in the middle of 10 Mexicans getting my whole body kicked, punched, ribs broken, concussion, broken wrist and 4 teeth knocked out.....because I was white, no other reason.

So in an imperfect world where racism exists you better have a little of your own if you want to survive.

That's my .02

This is one of my favourite quotes from anything, ever.
Love it.


...I agree wholeheartedly with the sentiment here - I mean, ideally we should live in a world where nobody gives a flying crap what colour your skin is. I think the sad reality is that a lot of people out there do very much care about the colour of their skin - and many, obviously, have been victimized in the past on that basis. That's a hard thing to move past. Particularly hard, I think, when your entire culture and race has grown up with that kind of "out of slavery" mentality as a backdrop.

I'm not seeking to excuse either side here in that respect - racism is racism, I don't really care too much about your context - but while it isn't excusable, it IS understandable at times - and ultimately I suppose victims and perpetrators alike are both deserving of either sympathy or pity in some measure... because ultimately, nobody is born racist.

I certainly look forward to the day when people just don't care. People on both sides of the perceived divide. ...because honestly? At the end of the day, it's just melanin. We all have it!

Another race baiting thread.

Nothing to see here folks ...except for a person exercising the rights permitted by this forum.

It's not just skin deep, nor is it strictly cultural. There are biological differences between blacks and whites, and I'm sure other races as well. But it's not politically correct to bring that to anyone's attention, so no one talks about it anymore. Here is a blog written by an American philosophy teacher. He lived in Africa for 30 years and studied the differences between Africans and westerners. It's not racism, just raw observations and facts.

Morality and Abstract thinking, how Africans may differ from Westerners

Most also don't understand the fine line between prejudice and racism. EVERYONE has prejudice, but not everyone is a racist.

Example: you're a white person from the suburbs, you see two young black men walking toward the general direction of your car and you get very nervous and lock your doors. If they had been two young white men walking up would you have felt less nervous? would you have even locked your doors? If the answer is yes, then you have prejudice. Are you a racist? Not necessarily, no. But on the other hand if you are a racist, you are also prejudice. The definition of a racist - a person with a prejudiced belief that one race is superior to others. The line was skewed because these, days all you have to do to be considered racist by a black person is exist and have white skin. And yes that is coming from my prejudice perspective.

That does make sense. I hope one day we can let go of that stigmatism

I am going to dismiss your ignorance about what a "person" really is (legal fiction, not a human being).

But I want to point out that while that sounds good on the surface, and with a quick glance, even logical, when you really think about it, it falls apart.

Bruce Lee was a superior martial artist. Superior to pretty much anyone in the world, and would still be (if he was still around the same age, of course).

That doesn't mean that he was WORTH MORE than the the mothers who have burned their children, because "mommy was tired".

As human beings, we all have not equal skills or abilities, but equal WORTH.

There is nothing wrong with superiority, and not all people have the same skills and abilities, so NATURALLY a lot of the people are SUPERIOR to other people. So what? It's not a crime to be superior. Even I have been superior to my peers at some things.

Superior simply means that they are the best of a given group. If someone is the fastest typist of a group of 20 people, he is the superior typist. Hmm, I think "typer" would be more logical. But anyway, again, so what?

Asian races have superior intellect compared to other races. Dare I say which race ranks last in that completely neutral, non-racistic, and factual list?

The point is, superiority is just a neutral quality. Not all can be basketball superstars, not all can be extremely good violin players, not all can be creative geniuses (like the people responsible for creating "Chrono Trigger").

There are LOTS of differences between people, lots of differences between races, and it's foolish to blind ourselves from the truth just so no one would get offended. Black immigrants tend to be the superior criminals, for example, in the crime statistics of certain countries. Especially those who moved from certain countries and cultures that teach very wrong values to people.

All this is hushed up on the news stories of course, because of political correctness.

Why must we SPEAK as if the human races are exactly identical, except the skin color, when the truth is, they aren't?

I mean, in a world, where humans WERE very similar to each other, despite their biological bodies and 'race', THERE it wouldn't matter one bit. There we could all heartily agree with the sentiment, that it doesn't matter one wit, what kind of culture or race you have grown in.

But biology does factor in with things like intelligence and behaviour, unfortunately. So does culture, VERY heavily.

So when someone has a certain biology, AND has spent all their life in a certain culture, I think it's only fair to have certain prejudices about them - not necessarily anything hostile, just neutral, factual ones.

Countries do mold and brainwash 'their' 'populations' (or is it 'populace'?`I get those words mixed, together with 'populous' and 'populus') a lot, and even the physical environment is a huge factor in molding 'personality' and behaviour. Someone who has lived in rural areas all their lives will most definitely be different than a New York celebrity reporter. It's just willful blindness to think otherwise.

However, of course a certain skin pigment doesn't necessarily mean a certain behaviour pattern.

But it's not racistic to say that some race is superior than another in something, and another in something else. The black/african/whatever-the-politically-correct-word-for-this-race-might-be-races, for example, are more masculine, and have more efficient muscles. This makes them better athletes and sports superstars than other races. The asian races are superior in intelligence, and the 'white' races are superior in being pretty mediocre about all these things.

Asian races are superior at being feminine - you can't find as pussy-whipped wimpy nerd-losers (I mean this just as a description, not an insult) and subservient, spineless individuals as you can find easily amongst the asian races. At the same token, you can't find as violent and aggressive, foaming-at-the-mouth-type criminal alpha-thug-gangsters as you can from the 'african' races (I don't really know what the terminology about this should be, I think it was something like 'negroid' or something, but that word has probably been forbidden, although it started out as just a neutral term, like 'caucasian').

Pretending that people are all the same just leads to more trouble. Truth is the guide we should always hold close to our hearts, no matter how INCONVENIENT or POLITICALLY INCORRECT it may be.

People shun the truth like it's the plaque or some kind of a hot potato - no one wants to have it, hold it, and go with it in sickness and in health, until death parts them..

It's not about "better" or "worse" - it's about WORTH. If you think some people are WORTH less than others, based on physical qualities alone (like penis, for example), you are a racist/misandrist/etc. Btw, there is no misogyny, just claims..

Every label is a chance for division to be believed in. Remove all the labels and all conflict will cease.
Do not be conquered by labels.
Be divided and be conquered.
Unite by seeing through labels.

I'm going to dismiss your smugness and pet your high horse ^_^ I agree with your definition as a matter of opinion. But tell me, how exactly is my "ignorance" even a factor here? It was not my opinionated definition of a racist... that is the 'technical' definition of a racist.
