yeah I hear you. I am married to a freaking mexican woman, go figure how racist I am.
I was called a racist today on ATS because I pointed out the relativity of race opinions in Europe and the US. I explained how it was basically the
same thing and how its really just about human nature.
I nearly pissed my pants laughing. jajaja
here is my post from that thread.
simple answer to the question of your title ....not really related to your op...
The US is as racist as the rest of the world. IMO maybe less then other places like Europe or the Caribbean since our history made us bring our
ignorance to the table and address it in some way.....
Dominicans for example HATE Haitians ......Europeans see south Americans and blacks as subhuman .....the US ?maybe we are guilty of our own issues
with our neighbors but globally speaking, since we are making generalizations .....humans are racist. It is more about human nature then racism. We
fear different people.
Then came the "I dont need to have reading comprehension to scold you liberal" and called me a racist for pointing out the blatant racism I LIVED
through in Europe because of my dark skinned wife and being a culturally latino myself or else where in life.
LOL. The race card flew and that was that. I am a racist now FOR POINTING OUT racism and saying what I know about it.....go figure.
In the end I just dont care anymore myself. I am a minority where I am from just for having pale skin and light eyes. Do I even care when I am treated
differently because of my skin? Hell no, I am not a retard. Do I care when other people feel slighted because they "THINK" I treated them differently
because of their skin...NO, They may be retarded.
SO I agree with the OP, its better to not even give a damn about retards and retardedness.
Also whats with this recent concern (distraction) all of a sudden with race issues? You would think that amongst the "awaken" crowd at least that they
could spot a time tested diversionary tactic when they see one.
I love you.
