How can anyone deny that america is racist?

Have you heard about the Twin Peaks Shooting? Involving rival biker gangs. They're white, I should add.
The way the media is portraying them is far less scrutinizing than the way black people are. There is no extensive backgrouund check on the biker's and their families. They haven't shamed the dead or called them all thugs.
The police never came rolling in with riot gear, tear gas, military equipment. They never even cuffed them. So, are you still goiing to deny that america is racist as fuck?

    Why?
    Because everything is 'insulting', 'offensive', 'a slander', 'racist', 'mean', 'rude', . . . etc.

  • Listen where I come from there is a LOT less diversity and a LOT more racism. You don't hear about it but it is part of the social fabric. You just live in a diverse country. If you were in China or Europe , the racism, sexism, and classism would be far more severe - you just wouldn't see it because so many people accept it.

    • Yes I know that and you make a very good point! But what this question is aimed at racism-deniers in America!!! urghhh
      @Eifellgirl21 through reliable social media and research I've done myself. I'm not blind to what's going on in America. I've spoken to plenty of Americans who have given me information on what sort of issues are going on there.

  • Well considering that everything negative against black people is an act of racism nowadays, no I don't think America as a country is racist. If a black man kills someone and a police officer arrests him, the police officer is a racist fuck --> media logic. White people can't say or do anything in fear of being called racist, because if you are white, you are surely racist.

    • If a black man is peacefully arrested without being harmed then the police officer isn't racist. but the fact is, a lot of police officers tend to use unnecessary brute force (sometimes fatal) and they don't get indicted. media outlets like cnn and fox news sometimes skew the truth when it comes to these types of situations.
      True, America as a whole is not racist but the americans that are take up a greater portion of the population, even if they don't want to admit it.

    • yes, that's the problem. There's nobody who's innocent in those shootings.
      BUT they're criminalizing the cop! They're trying to paint the colored thug (he was a thug) as innocent, and make the cop the big devil with horns and tail.
      That's not how it is; the world is grey, the case is grey.

      But the moment protesters (look at their skin collor, just saying) saw an oportunity it went from a gray stain on the canavas, to pouring a bucket of black paint on the canavas.
      The truth is that colored people are overrepresented on criminal statistics, and in jail. It's a trend, and it goes deeper than just "racism". Because I believe that the looting and pillaging show that a group of colored people does in fact not want to behave. And sadly, they're ruining for everyone else.
      And they NEED to be stopped!
      Same as police brutality towards everyone NEED to be stopped.

      The thing is just that the times where it hurts a colored person, other colored people loose their shit over it.

    • i'm not continuing this argument. i can't take you seriously if you think Darren Wilson is innocent and you think protesters are the same as rioters.

  • get over yourself and grow up. America isn't racist. the idiots inside of America are.. and not all either. MANY black blame racism on their actions. Like OMG I robbed somebody and tried to grab your gun. the cop shoots him and cuz he's black and the cop is white, suddenly it is a race war..
    haha oh, and lets talk about the animals in Baltimore because that is WHAT THEY ARE.

    Looting EVERY pharmacy/CVS store on EVERY block? REally? oh yeah that wasn't to steal all their pills and shit right? You honestly don't think they are using this as an excuse to ACT like the animals that they are? Yeah, I know USA caged them for too long.

    P. S- not all blacks are animals. but the ones rioting like this ARE!

  • One, I don't believe the country as a whole is racist. We only hear about racism because that's what the media wants us to hear. I think, it all started with the plights of our black president. Like ebola, it will magically disapear when the time is right. So, I guess, I'm brainwashed...

    Two, it's black people's fualt too. I have a lot of black friends, who, whenever something isn't fair in life, cry racism.

    (We only have twentyish dark skinned students at my school.) One guy, Mark, was being bullied, but so was my white friend, Joe, by the same bully. Mark got the whole school in an uproar by saying the bully was being racist. He left Mark alone after a huge gathering of students with anti-racism slogans. Joe is still being bullied to this day and the teachers can't stop it.

    Now, I'm not blaming black people. In some situations it's other races fault too, but if people would stop being so damn sensitive and grow some then life would be easier. Instead of getting all offened when someone is racist, purposely or accidentally, just accept that they have issues and move on.

    Nothing is ever equal. Someone always is holding the short end of the stick. I love how you have a choice. Basically, we could agree with you or look stupid. It's too bad you resorted to such devices to make your point. Also, too bad it didn't work.

    • Im not from America and I don't see your place as a racist country.

What Guys Said 22

  • Considering the fact that cops took to the riot gear AFTER blacks started fucking everything up... i believe the riot gear was perfectly justifiable. You can't go batshit crazy, and expect the cops to not care just because you're black.

    The problem with america is that it is fundamentally LOOKING for places to pull the racist card. Arresting a criminal is never racist, using your firearm if the situation calls for it isn't racist either.
    Remember, if you look like a duck and quacks like a duck, you're probably a duck. So if you dress like a thug, and act like a thug, then don't get surprised if you see the cops watching you like a hawk and striking down hard the moment you cross a line! And if you run from the police, well, that's just fucking stupid!

    Again, after the fergson shooting, a portion of the blacks took the vigilante law in hand, and thus proving the stereotypes right. In baltimore 6 cops (3 of them were black, mind you) shot a guy, and they WERE found guilty. But the black comunity, instead of demanding a fair trial (that did end up with the cops sentenced) went crazy (again). The outcome is 202 injured (of those, 98 are cops, and 7 of them are seriously injured).
    And the ONLY reason those 202 people were injured was because parts of the black comunity took vigilante laws in hand.

    So no, i don't beleive the united states of america is racist. The problem is that they LOVE to call the RACIST card, the HOMOPHOBE card, the SEXIST card, the MISOGYNIST card, and just about EVERY means they can use to shut their oponents the fuck up.

    In short, america is not racist. It's just fucked up, filled with anger and frustration, and everyone pulls racist/sexist/homphobe cards to shut up their oponents instead of fixing everything like civiliced people.
    TLDR: usa isn't racist, it's just fucked up in general because people are getting fed up with bullshit.

    It's not even about "ghetto" black people either, because all people ever do is call me "the whitest black guy ever" and I've still encountered racism. Even a classy handsome guy like me was thrown out of house parties for being black and stared down by guys in mud covered trucks with confederate flags waving off them, been told I can't date them because their family doesn't want black people in the genes, and having scared little white couples and women avoid you on the street at night.

    • I didn't mean doing extensive background checks on all of them. They do this all the time with blacks, regardless of numbers, a few would be scrutinised on television.

    • By argument I meant you were trying to make a point, not a literal argument. It doesn't apply because you took the statement 'America is racist' and took it literally. Racism isn't all about name calling and open harrassment of non-whites, you know. It's institutionalised and just because there is one person who isn't racist doesn't mean that racism cannot be perpetuated in society. Look at the disproportionate amount of black men convicted. Look at the white policemen who have killed innocent black people and gotten away with it. Just because black people don't get asked to use the 'blacks only' water fountain and don't get spat on and called n****r in the street doesn't mean American in general isn't racist.

    • Ah ok I wasn't sure what type of argument you meant (Argumentument :D) Yes there is a lot of racism in america but that doesn't make the whole of america (which means either everyone living there or all americans, the asker didn't specify) is racist.
