Why do some people think that if they have black friends they're automatically not racist?

Racism doesn't mean you hate all races besides your own. You can hate some races and tolerate others but you're still a racist LOL

  • I think some people believe that not simply having a "hatred" for a race means they can't be racist. Racism doesn't have to be that extreme.

  • because maybe they are friends with them because they actually like them? what i don't understand is idiots who say "they can't be racist because of prejudice +power." there is no such definition of racism in existence. so when you go and say nasty things to white people, for example, because of their skin color you are actually being racist. there's no reverse racism or any of that other fairy tale bullsh*t that you like to come up with to play the victim.

    • @rexiun Apparently Chris Rock thinks there is no black people in minnesota
      lol.

  • Why do some people think if you're black it's impossible to be racist. I don't believe racism hardly exist at all, frankly. I think it's rare in America

    • 😳 you think racism is rare?

    • If you think racism hardly exist at all, then you live in a bubble. Native Americans are literally being tear gassed in North Dakota right now.

  • Cause that's how society has always been

  • I believe it's because they don't discriminate who they associate with. Hell, I've seen people be racist against their own race, but it is what it is.
