Re: Majority of Americans hold anti-black and anti-Hispanic sentiment.

The best way to combat racism IMO is not with more racism.

This is the WRONG way to combat racism:

White person "Black people are all ugly"

Black person "White people are all haters. My fellow black people, we should show that we are better than them."

You read these things online a lot and it gets so many likes. But it doesn't solve any problems.

We must learn from Gandhi and MLK jr.

Re: Majority of Americans hold anti-black and anti-Hispanic sentiment.

Many people use statistics to show that there are indeed differences in skin color. Some of the statistics such as education and crime rates show startling difference between the races.

But the reasoning is wrong. The differences between the stats come from differences in culture and quality of living.

No one can deny that Asians in America on average score the best on exams and succeed the most in school. (in average)

Why? Because in general, Asian parents place more emphasis on education.

It is true that Hispanics have higher than average crime rates. Why? Because they had a poor quality of life when they immigrated into the country, and are sent off to do cheap labor.

We all have the same chromosomes (except for smoe with mental disabilities), and we all have the same capacity in our brains. Slight physical differences like skin color does not cause these differences among the races, it is all about backgrounds.

Uninteresting..




So many people use anti-racism to mask how disgusting themselves are. It bores me.

Personally, I think racism is easily the most retarded concept ever invented by our society. If you hate someone, hate them for their actions, not for something they were born with. We are all people with the same genetic material and the same number of chromosomes. To suggest one race is inferior to another is pretty much redneck ignorance.
Excellent post from a semi-unexpected source. I agree with every word.

Re: Majority of Americans hold anti-black and anti-Hispanic sentiment.

yeah it's a big problem. Need more black/hispanic people in major power positions in America. Like you got a Black President. That surely is a good sign. I mean if a majority of the population votes for a black man as president there is some hope isn't there?

Still it's a bit boring to be white as a vampire like me too. You can't do any "I'm white and I'm proud" stuff. Then you look racist like hell for some reason (part joking here ofc)

I think it's a problem that anti-racism, racism and people just focusing so much on black, asian whatever ALL provide a breeding ground for racism.

The less attention that is put on "race" the better. Why even recognize that a different skin color means a different race? Then you sort of go back to the days of the caucasian, negroid and mongoloid human races when scientists measured craniums and alike.

Now everything is so blured anyway. Black? what the hell does that even mean. And how come a child of a caucasian parent and a black parent is considered black? It's no more black than white? It's all a very very very stupid situation imo. Asian? that could mean almost anything.

As the world looks today we need to adapt our entire perception of race.

Re: Majority of Americans hold anti-black and anti-Hispanic sentiment.

Race is actually a cultural construction rather than a biological one.

So you are not necessarily most similar (genetically) to someone of your own race. It's crazy how something like this has had huge implications.

Yes, he really said it, during ACC campaigning last year.

Re: Majority of Americans hold anti-black and anti-Hispanic sentiment.

colour me surprised but believe me brother, it's far worse in europe, esp. if you're arab looking.

the worst kind of racist is the one who likes to make himself look as the progressive type, who would never claim to be a racist and who probably doesn't really think of himself as one either, the one who usually claims to be an atheist and uses that image to attack other peoples because of their religious beliefs and has no problems sympathizing with right wing politicians with an anti immigration agenda. there are actually quite a few of those here.

It's not racist in the least to attack other people's religion. Religion is a choice, your race isn't. There is a big difference.

It's also not racist to have "anti immigration agenda" either.

People like you are exteremly annoying for trying to bring racial argument into everything, when in reality the "racism" is actually driven by pragmatism rather than racial hatred (ie Not allowing refugees into a country because harboring them would strain the economy and anger the taxpayers).
