    people dislike and like things, maybe you should start accepting that and not judge everybody for it ~~
    This isnt true, if someone hates sushi the sushi will not care, if someone hates a new Honda it just means a car wont be getting sold. The idea that hating a human being is comparable to hating apiece of food or a luxury car is insulting to anyone who has been the victim of hate. A Racist defines an individual who deems his/her own race superior, it encourages intolerance, discrimination and misery in the lives of others. The irony of saying i should not judge those who judge others so extremely is blatant, i wont accept racism and never will. Im sure true victims of it will agree.

    so because somebody can get butthurt over it, means its wrong? oh please! you are pretty much criminalizing everything there has ever been in the entire universe! theres even people who are offended when you tell them that the sun does NOT orbit the earth, even TODAY! you wanna now go and tell me, that telling people about this fact is wrong because of that?!

    i think you truly are overrating this whole "feelings hurt"-thing, its so easy to hurt somebodies feelings that its not even funny anymore.

    racism gets wrong as soon as criminal criterias are being met. blackmailing, beating, openly discriminating people in a hurtful and life-shattering manner, and so on - but these criterias can also easily be met without any racist intend at all!
    on the other hand, not wanting to have anything to do with a certain "kind" of people is nothing bad... ofc feelings are being hurt in form off "mii mii, he wont even look me in the face when im greeting him", but thats just totally not problematic in any way. its our right as humas to be able to ignore certain people - the reasons shouldnt matter here at all. also not selling xy any goods isnt also really that big of a deal, since its already happening on a legal level by not selling kids any booze or cigarettes, in the end you, as the shopowner, are free to choose to wich people you want to sell your goods - as long as you stay legal(dont sell booze to kids! even if you want to!).

    "racism" is extremely overrated and people should finally stop talking about it and just accept things how they are.

    The thing is AA was the solution to the problem you are talking because it was and still does happen to minorities, women, and the disabled.

    How would a question like that be Black/White/Asian?
    The question would be based on something that people would see as common white knowledge but other groups would see as something different.
    Like who is Houdini some people will know he is the magician but some would thing about the rapper even though the spelling in different.

    Somehow I get the feeling you would be "butthurt" if you were in a store and see people buying something out of it but when your time comes you are told "I don't sell goods to people like you". I wonder how harmless you would find racism if you lived and worked in a place where the majority of people would ignore you?

    What would people define as racism? How far does it go before it's deemed as racism? <.<

    According to some posters on this thread being white is enough to be called a racist.

    Can you quote someone saying exactly this? Or are you merely demonstrating that you know what hyperbole is?

    It is literally impossible for a white man to be a victim of racism. Women on the other hand, can still get prejudice just because they're women.

    Of course there is white prejudice. And I don't blame the minorities for hating us, because historically speaking we really deserve everything they throw at us.

    If a black person kills a black person its a crime, if a black person kills a white person its a crime, but if a white person kills a black person its a HATE crime.

    Also, Affirmative Action.

    Racism against white people happens every day.

    Being white and not spending your time and enegry bettering the life of non-white people = racism. And people wonder why we get offended.

    We had 7 class periods a day in highschool. In 5 of them, I was the only white kid. February was an especially hard month

    That's the game, funniest thing is the guy most aggressive and insulting (and bigoted) will not even be infracted for it.

    ---------- Post added 2013-02-02 at 05:41 PM ----------

    Anyways the most telling issue with bigotry is how it gets ignored when it's not a "victim" status person.

    If you achieve the mighty "victim" status in the USA, you suddenly become empowered to be a bigot.

    You can use your sudden clout as a victim to get into university... once there you can create your gang tables, then when you have enough you can force the universities to tailor make your education for you. If you don't understand what that means look up Michelle Obama and see what he 4 year college degree was in, particularly her minor. She actually did her thesis titled ""Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community"" That's a thesis? Really? If I tried to a thesis on X University whites and the white community I think I wouldn't have been accepted.

    It's perplexing...
    The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities.

    Oh Em Gee that's so racist! How DARE you have physical preferences!11!!

    Really though. It's people like the one's Cybran was referring to that have completely destroyed hope for a productive debate on the matter. I'm very strongly against racism. I'm constantly in local events and community drives to fight against it. Does it do anything? Eh, we'll see. But the biggest thing we as a knit community hate to see is this recent trend of over sensitive fucktwats coming out of the woodwork making an entire opinion seem like garbage.

    That'd be like Westboro Baptist representing everyone with religious faith or PITA representing anyone who rescued animals. Unfortunately in an environment of anonymity like a forum, its those weirdo's who bark the loudest.

    And this is why people don't take racism against white people seriously.

    You feel uncomfortable for 1 month. Try being any minority in a class full of white kids for the rest of the months. Shit even February is uncomfortable. I nearly got kicked out of school because some kid said "Nice, we have to write a report because of you" when we had to do a report on the Civil Rights Movement.

    White people play victim just as much as minorities over a lot less. Most of time it isn't even racism, they aren't used to being the minority in a situation.

    And you believe this too?

    Reminds me of funny stuff like: more white people smoke crack but more blacks get arrested for it.

    The world has no shortage of small, petty people, why we must divide up and define every aspect of those types, I won't ever understand.
