Black student at school, for example, calls a white guy a cracker? Congratulations, he's a comedian and everyone laughs, including the white target. However, if Mr White in this instance decides to turn around and counter with anything SLIGHTLY racist, everyone gasps and falls silent. Potential fights, threats, the white kid in suspended, etc etc. Its just kind of the way things are, at least around here. I don't really see anyone standing up and pushing for a change, either.
Plus, black people are not really black, nor are white people exactly white.

No one is referring to the actual color (in before black/white is not a color)

Since I am late on this thread I'm going to just start with the OP and go to the last page.
Or are you talking about the state of America today, where more murders and drug offenders are white.
You see the stereo types are very wrong, I grew up in Los Angeles and according to media if I walk out side my front door I am subject to drive by shootings and gang wars. I use to live at Normandy and Gage, I was the only white person for 5 miles in a poor black part of town, and I was a typical goth. I never had any issues at all. Well until I went to a white neighborhood and white people acted like I was going to murder and eat them. So Most of the racial stereotypes are false and White people are the monsters they fear the most.
It's ignorance and irrational but it's rooted deep into most peoples minds and it's difficult to uproot overnight. Take slavery as an example, whites are still being passively accused for it up to this day, this is how powerful first impressions are, especially when they're negative first impressions.
well this is a simple fact. if you add an A to the end its all good. white dude calls black dude a nigga its all good, white dude calls black dude a nigger your going to get shot. black dude calls white dude cracka its all good, black dude calls white dude cracker never heard a black dude say cracker and neither have you. black people dont say the ER in cracker or nigger only white people do that it seems. if you read through this thread you will see how most of you will say nigger or cracker instead of nigga or cracka, how do black people tend to say it. use the new word yet people still use the old world.
black dude: yo! nigga how you been haven't seen you in years.
white dude: yo! hows it going nigger haven't seen you in years.
the slight difference is obvious and it even feels worst when you say the ER version
but judgeing people based on the tone of their skin and not their character is what a dumbass would do
im black and japanese so everything is say is true lolz
really surprised this tread is still up lolz

for survival reasons human have learned what to avoid what to be cautious with and what to fear from their own past experiences and the past experience of others. We as humans have been programmed to make split second decisions its part of the fight or flight mechanism. So its not ignorant and or irrational to judge someone or something till you get to know it. Its for the sake of survival
