''I can't stand ignorant people.'' - Roughly translates into ''I'm either omnipotent or loathe myself''
PS: Use 'ignoramus' next time buddy. That's the term for someone who's DELIBERATELY ignorant.
PPS: I'm not attracted to Eskimos or women of middle-eastern or African descent. Does that make me racist? :P
I admit I am culturally racist. I believe Western Civilization is superior to others and should be the paradigm towards which others aspire. So sue me.
i really dont see a problem with someone being a racist as long as they dont take it to extreme levels or publicize their beliefs and thoughts to an extreme level. i mean in the US we're supposed to be a free nation. people, in my opinion, are well within their rights to dislike a certain race, do i agree with it? no not at all but who am i to tell someone what to believe and not to believe.
in the end, i believe that at some level everyone has a little racism in them. i dont consider myself racist at all, being in the army i have friends with just about as many races as i can think, however i can honestly say that i have had moments when im in a store and i see someone (doesnt matter if their white,black, brown, yellow) and i think to myself "wow theres a reall winner" i think its just enevitable to be honest
just my .02
On a somewhat related note I gotta get something off my chest. Is it just me that hates how people refer to african-americans as black people? This for me is not a racist is but a colourist(?) issue. Most african-americans now look more like the color brown then black now so shouldn't we refer them as brown people?
Sure there are some that still look like they are actually usually the people who family who lived in Africa and did not mix there race up being with other races. It ihas come to the point were people are forgetting what colors are:}.

Yes, because overall it hurts society. Look at what life was like to the blacks before the civil rights act (and I'm not saying things are perfect now either.)
Whether or not you keep your racism to your self, it doesn't change the fact that its a damaging and pointless attitude.

i just realized how i'll never get to meet darth vader and then soap got in my eye - Kylo Ren

I have no idea where that European man fell from, honest.
I hope you don't think I was implying if you are black you will inherently commit a murder compared to a white person. I'm simply saying statistically speaking black people commit more murders than white people, etc.
Slightly off-topic. I think its quite honestly hilarious how a black person can call another black "nigga" but if a white person did it, it's a whole different story.
I also think it's hilarious how a black person will call another black person "brotha" or "cuz". I guess it's just cultures, but still.
Man, when I read text of how I feel about these things I really am racist I guess... :-/

Believing that some should be put in their place
Be prepared for some flak if you judge every black
Who do you think will watch your back
But on topic.... yes, it is a big deal. Unless you don't like the concept of a progressive and value-driven society based not on basal instincts and single-minded animalistic drives, but on intellectual values and logical thought processes.
