That's true I do have various perspectives of seeing things, we don't have whites, it's just tribal conflicts and not color conflicts so I don't get why people hate skin color
Well the odd thing is, typical racists don't claim to hate anyone. They only claim they are talking about common sense everyday facts. "Blacks" commit this crime more, "Blacks" are less educated, etc. That is the amazing thing about race. It seeks to know people through statistics and some kind of weird objective analysis. It is basically the most aggressive type of ignorance one can participate in.
Oh well, I hope they get enlightened more
This comment taught me more about racial dynamics than all the social media virtue signaling combined. Well put.
@SomeGuyCalledTom Thank you sir. It is humbling if only one person learns just a little bit more about race/racism. It is why I do what I do. I lead a discussion group on race and culture. Everyone is welcome. We are moving to an online format.
I'll love to be part of the online class @RolandCuthbert if you don't mind
I will message you. Thank you!
Okay, thank you
Haha, Roland talking about race issues is like the best thing happening on GaG. I kid you not, whenever there's a race related question being posted, I click on it like "I hope Roland answered!" Hahahaha! I'm serious, this is the stuff people here (and anywhere) need to hear.
@MountAverage Hmmm. . . why thank you sir. It just that GaG is unlike most places on the net. Most people here believe in race. And of those race-believers, most can't even define what they believe in.
I don't know what the crime rate is among nigerians in the U,. S but I do know a great majority of internet scams come out of nigeria.
Then I guess I'm not a typical racist because I admit I don't like blacks.
If you are a White woman and raped by a black man, who are you going to hate more, black men or white men?
@KAT51 hate the single person that did it, should I hate every white lady that false reported a black person. The answer is NO. Don't generalize. It's not justified by your hatred
@KAT51 And I thank you for being honest. Most GaG racists are passive aggressive. They lie about their true intentions and make it impossible to reach a solution. I appreciate racists who are not weird.
You are welcome, and thank you for allowing me to exercise freedom of speech. It is hard not to be racist in the US. I was the victim of black on White crime so it prejudiced me against black men. Hard for me to trust the race, even though I shouldn't blame a whole race for what one man did to me.
@KAT51 Oh, I disagree. It is really easy to be a racist in the U. S. It is just harder being a logical, common sense racist. Because you are hated by both sides. I try to get "Black" people to appreciate racists who let you know where they stand up front. There is only one other racist here who is like that. He is from Russia. But most Slavs are really honest people.
@Chikky Do you mind if I ask for you to respond to this post? If you don't wish to do it here. I want to cut and paste it into our discussion and take this apart for analysis.
@RolandCuthbert let's analyze it in the DM
@Chikky I am going to paste it into our group. We can talk about it there. It goes to the heart of what I think is a very important topic. Race/culture like what is the excuse for interrogating an FBI agent with a Sudanese background?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLhoR7kegkg
@RolandCuthbert whats the point of dropping that on my thread and openly talking about "analyzing" my words, in private (were you can misinterpret them or put attributes on them that are not their and I'm not their to defend them?)? I don't actually care but clearly you wanted to speak to me (or see you talking about my statements anyway) or you wouldn't have involved me in a private conversation.
@Chikky. I went ahead and posted it on FB and in the Meetup group. I wanted to illustrate two things. . . how racism/racists are wholly obsessed with talking about what they claim to be the "failures" of "Black" culture or the "Black" race. And how this obsession makes it impossible to talk about race and culture with a multicultural group of people such as our own. We have almost 300 people in our group. I know how to do diversity. The funny thing is, we will have constant problems with understanding each other, even without racists and their obsession to be the supreme race.

If only it was like that lol. Everyone hates, sometimes without noticing, your hate might be a little racist.
Racial Bigotry and Prejudice are the same. Pre-judging.
As someone else eluded to, there's a difference between.1. Having negative thoughts.2. Believing negative thoughts.3. Acting on negative thoughts.I'd say at stage 1, naturally, I may veer into stage 2 some time.Fuck, I should have copyrighted this model. It's bloody good!
No, it's the other way around. Blacks are the most racist. They think they're better and cooler than everyone else. They call white people "crackers" and Asian people "chinks and gooks."
I was the only Asian at my school. The black kids told me that I eat dogs or that I should go back to China. No white kid ever insulted me for anything. They knew I just moved to America and my English wasn't good. So they read books for me, played with me, etc. I also live in the South, where most white people are characterized as racist, but that's not true. The black kids bullied me a lot. Never the white kids.
I didn't hear that "culturalist" one before.
Just wondering, is there systemic racism in the USA?
I wouldn't say that it's downplaying or belittling some of the more horrible acts of racism. I think that it's just about admitting the fact that racism is quite a wide spectrum that affects people in multiple different ways and can be expressed through an infinite number of actions. Actually, saying that only the horrible acts of racism are "truly racist" is more hurtful, because that diminishes the impact and importance of smaller acts of racism, that affect people daily. It gives people a get out of jail free card, because they can just say "oh I've never done something horribly racist, so that must mean that I'm not a racist at all". No, you can be a racist even if you haven't done or said something horribly racist. You can also be a racist even if you don't act on your racist beliefs or thoughts. It's a tough pill to swallow, and that's why very few people are actually willing to challenge themselves and their own thoughts. Obviously nobody wants to admit to being even slightly racist.
Da'quan and Shaneika
@ampera funnily enough my name is shaniqua. I get judged all the time for it.
how is not wanting to pay taxes racist
Aaand she's silent.
Not quiet just speechless
@Asker- unbelievable. Everyone is “a little bit racist”-everyone but your own sanctimonious self. I think that pretty much tells me what I need to know- what everyone who reads this should know about you.😳😳
@girther10 I'm not gonna say am not, but just saying I might have said something bad or thought something bad which I thought would be racist, all in all, we don't have white people in Nigeria so that's why I don't know how to add to the recent happening in America
You're only 14, and you're smarter than most adults on here lol.Keep up the good work man :)
Well, some people on here can come across as bizarre to say the least 😂
Thank you dear😊😊
I like that
Yeah.. or some not being your type cause you are dark or brown skin.
Ahh yeah :’) I know that feeling
Umm, why would you think I wanna lie about being a Nigerian
That's a good point but I thought they all lived in Scammia City.
Now you're just being stupid
Nigeria has a bad rep, sorry.
And your country's perfect right
We don't have scam centers or pirates taking ships hostage anyway.
Go read up, you're just choosing to be ignorant
Get a life, you fucking Karen.
You look like a typical American white privilege woman who would call the cops on People of Color for no reason other than their Black. You country is a shithole by the way.
