Its not the race, its the culture. There is a bit of a culture diffrence and a lot of things are allowed to slide when they shouldn't due to race (I'm from chicago so I don't know if that will effect your perceptions of what I am saying or not but, I see a lot of black on black crime and a lot of people then turning around and claiming its white peoples fault, or in one case a man killed a child yet the mother kept claiming he was a good boy instead of realizing how bad the situation was and attempting to rectify it) So no I don't think its necessarily bad in the fashion you think, however it may be necessary to show him that you are not an exception but rather one of many who are not the stereotypical black person. There is a lot of problems in the black community that a lot of people ignore and pretend are not there or are due to racisim which for a white guy, it can get real tiring and actually breed the racism it claims exists.(a few years ago in chicago 30 black men where killed with in 3 day time span all but one of the assailents where black, the one was hispanic. The next day in the newspapers it was talking about how white people turned there back on blacks and it was some how all there fault.) Being told your the root of all evil tends to cause angry backlashes and is in all likely hood the reason why your boyfriend is seemingly racist (technicly an inaccurate term since there is no scientific way to verifie race) attitude but why he is with you. He doesn't hate black people he is just fed up with being blamed and with people allowing the blaming to continue instead of resolving the problem. Also redneck actually is inaccurate, the rednecks where a group of miners that faught against the mining corporations slave like control of mining towns. Frequently literally when said companies used the pinkerton group (mercenaries) to try and keep them in check using violence, threat or actual. The word your looking for is hillbilly, though also still inaccurate :)
So its really up to you to figure out why he feels that way and show him those people are not all blacks, but that you are as diveresed in opinion and behavior as any other group. I hope that helps.0
