I know it is given what I've read Europeans say about racism in those countries, and given what I've read about racism in those countries, which is scary to think about. There's a PC thing in North America that keeps many USA and Canadian citizens from saying what they really mean but that blinder is off throughout much of Europe.

In Europe are on this site? Because if you mean on this site, I have a clue who you're implying. If not, then yes, I totally know what you're saying and yes, A LOT of social progressive, starbucks, athiest types look down on people of different races bar Asians. Since from my experience, a lot of Asians run in these crowds. And they definitely do look down on other races/origins, and they pity them. They consider them trashy, unsophisticated and uncivil. Hear about this all the time.

Unfortunately, Obama was voted in in-spite of his race. We see in this years' election, where the race divide is huge, that the USA is not at all in a racial harmonious place.

This I actually agree with because the overwhelming majority of people of color are not black whatsoever. We are brown of different shades, or have sand-colored complexion. The whole black thing ties back to slavery and Africa. It's a long story and I'm not really the one to tell it. But segregation and rigid racial distinctions are all racial/racist as you effectively noted, and need to be dropped. We're all human in the end.

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.
Easy answer: Racism. It goes back to the whole once you go black you never go back mentality. Once a kid is tainted with "blackness" then they are no longer pure. But the reality is that most people on Earth are mixed. So that racial purist mentality is completely aimless and ignorant.

So we need everyone to sleep with everyone and hate lots of kids and this will solve this problem.

obviously not but you dont get the point i made. some of the people who deem to present themselves as rational and fair, use some aspects of a racial group's culture to demonize them. religion is often used against arabs by both open far right jackasses and also by a bunch of pseudo intellectual snobs who hide a racist agenda.

Quote:
It's also not racist to have "anti immigration agenda" either.
not per se, but such is usually the case.

Quote:
"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).
hmmmm no. you have a very simple view of the reality. things aren't that way. right wing politicians usually use those motives to prevent immigration but deep down hide a racist agenda. it's pretty obvious to see.

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

I like Blacks in the US. They have created their Own Powerful Identity in the States. They are the inventor the Rap Music, Major AMerican Sports like Basketball,American Football are all dominated by Blacks. They have their Own Powerful identity there. And i dont think any White Messes with the blacks anymore.

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

The way not to approach racism, is to tell people how to feel. The way to approach it is to find out why people feel this way, and then do something about that. We should first of all distinguish between two forms of racism: an unconscious form and an open form. Psychological tests have shown that 'racism' is a much more common feature in people than we might think. People try not to be racist, but when under stress their choices will be influenced by racial stereotypes.

I think open racism is rare, and will be mocked and branded, so they should not really get into this discussion. The question is how do we get rid of all sorts of racial stereotypes? I think a first step would be to change media-coverage. Studies have already show that black people in America are unconsciously seen as more dangerous than white people (even by black people). This has to do with the ridiculous discrepancy in news coverage of crimes committed by black people, when compared to white people.

In my country the same thing has happened to Arab people (as another poster already said). Because of all the negativity surrounding Arabs in the Netherlands, a negative stereotype is created within all inhabitants of my country, resulting in negative racial stereotyping of about 2 million people.

What do you say to someone who can't differentiate between religion and race? Nothing! Why bother?

abraxas thinks atheists are right wing racist rednecks
filo, in the post after this, thinks atheists are racist progressive socialists

Go figure!

The stereotypes Asians generally are forced to deal with are that they are all doctors or surgeons, they are all math wizards, that their families are all super harsh, they're all expected to be ultra smart, ultra bookish. Like they're computers. So with that being said, the racist elitist white types don't view Asians as harshly in many cases (definitely not all) because they see particular groups of Asians as smart, having a lot of money, and cultured, unlike Hispanics and blacks. These same people see Hispanics and blacks as uncultured and unsophisticated, ghetto, poor and uneducated in virtually all cases. It all comes down to stereotypes.

That's what I've read and seen.
