    Racisme should be re-named to generalising.

    I generalise and put muslims inn the same bucket. Don't care what other thinks. They are the main integration problem inn atleast Denmark, they will never be a postive side to our country.
    One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?

    No where did I say anything about gun related homicides, the op's original statement and my response was in terms of any particular "race" preferring guns, the gun control discussion going on in America in response to the recent mass shootings should provide some insight that preferring guns is not limited to any race.

    I happen to know that these people are racist because I'm close to them. Most of the people they interact with have no fucking clue.

    And I do think it's worrying if people are just pretending not to be racist, but actually are. When faced with a difficult situation their facade might drop and someone will be hurt, or when they just exercise their racism privately.

    Like when you publically seem quite fine with the relationship of your child with a black person, but in private use all sorts of dirty tactics to pressure the black person out of the relationship due to racism.

    Yeah because you don't want to be called a name that makes you look like a bigot, even if you actually are. If you're going to hate then grow some balls and do it properly. Where have all the good ol' racists gone? The one's who were atleast honest about their stupid views, these days everyone's a pussy.

    Yeah it's a big deal, you're dumb as fuck if you believe you can judge someone's character by the colour of their skin.

    First part is racist, I'm white and I know a few non white people who do drugs and many more white people who do drugs, however that is subjective to your genral area and has nothing to do with race just social groups.

    Second I fins that ironic, I won't argue with it since I myself to acknowledge there are indeed varying degree's of racism some damaging some harmless, just depends when, where and how you enact it.

    To answer the question without running in circles. I do not think racism is a big deal, I think that when people act upon racism that it becomes a VERY big deal.

    EDIT: I'm not racist, I hate everyone equally.

    Racism is human nature.

    Acting on it and actually applying it to how you treat people is what defines you as a person though.

    One of the silliest things I have ever heard.

    As for the OP, I dont quite understand the question at hand. I think question should be the opposite.

    Everyone judges you based on how you look, before they get to know you. People who say they never judge people from looks are kidding themselves. It's in the human nature.

    Just as a note, you may want to edit this into your original post for people who don't feel like digging through 8 pages or posts or checking your post history to find this.

    It's only a big deal if you actively talk about it in a demeaning fashion to others. Otherwise, it's really not a big deal because we all subconsciously judge each other to some degree. Nothing wrong with that.

    That's true, if you're a racist just try to put that aside.

    Someone who you disagree with reaches out in a fairly reasonable way and instead of discussing their viewpoint with them, you insult them and tell them they are stupid in no uncertain terms without offering anything in the way of the statistics or figures you seem to value so highly.

    I think the OP isn't the only one with something to learn.
    OP is only playing the victim, because he apparently isn't able (and I doubt he's very open to have his opinion changed with what he said in his last sentence) to see why his prejudice opinions towards races are, in fact, racist.


    Also, where did I say that OP was stupid, and where did I insult him?

    I pointed out that he is ill-informed and prejudiced. This is quite simply put, fact. Not an insult.

    Racism is bad, but willful ignorance of trends in races is also bad

    Pattern recognition seems to work in every other aspect of life except sociology because it may "hurt someones feelings".

  18. #358
    uh, A group of people being more "prone to violence" is a cultural issue, not a genetic one

    I don't know why racist people try to make correlations between a action, and your racial background.

    Racism is innate. Sorry to break it to you all who think they are not racist at all but neuroscience/psychology has shown on hundreds of studies that racism is the exact same as any other cognitive schema and comes instinctively thus you have no control.

    It's all to do with social identity and how our brain shortcuts the information we receive. However, just because we positively value the race we belong to doesn't mean you are going to go an lynch people of another race. There are different forms of racism, mostly formed by people not interacting with people of multiple races on a regular basis. You shouldn't prejudge someone based on their skin colour for any sort of reason but it is natural for individuals to be prejudice towards those of races they do not belong.

    A hatred for other races (which is what racism actually means) is not acceptable. You cant possibly understand anyone based on skin colour period, anyone who does is just ignorant and needs a beating.

    Fun fact - Generally racists are right wing, have an authoritarian personalities and are universally racist.

    White boys who grow up in communities that are not well off end up doing drugs and shit just as much as the black kids.
