People are hysterical over racism

There are degrees of racism

Everyone is a little racist at least

It’s mostly not a big deal at all

The portion of people who are dangerously racist is very small

It’s like fear of witches among puritans at this point

Worth noting that you can treat someone of a different skin color in a lesser manner or even poorly without it having anything to do with race. It could just simply be because the person is an ass.


So telling a black woman who is a US citizen to go back to Africa is .......?


Not racist. A country of origin is not a race ya dumbass. You and I are the same race Fecal........If I tell you to go back where you came from is it racist? Of course not.



So why aren’t whites ever told to “go back to yer cuntry”?


Don’t people say that to Fecal at least weekly?


He's not white.


incompetence is preferable to malice.

Yup. My wife and I were just talking about that yesterday. KH WAY oversimplified that issue.

For example, I'd be super pissed, and would put my kids in private school, if they got bussed to Lakewood schools.

Your blaming the freaked out firemen for the fire and giving the arsonist a pass.

Weird.

Just simply post the words and actions that you deem worthy of meeting the criteria for being considered a racist.



Here's one only a day or 2 old...........

“We don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be a brown voice. We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice. We don’t need Muslims that don’t want to be a Muslim voice. We don’t need queers that don’t want to be a queer voice.”

Who's in charge of what voices belong to what races/identities?

Is there a vote for that?

Nah, not racist. foreheadslap

I come from a shithole country which is the same as not being white.

Trump wants people from Norway, not from shitholes.

I'm not Aryan enough.

Being under Turks for 500 years does that.

"Eh, fooking haole, maybe you go get on next plane back to mainland, brah? Or mebbe you like get another crack?"

My older brothers got to experience the joys of growing up haole and blonde in Hawaii in the 1950s. Only in those days it was the next Matson Liner back to the mainland. Don't ge me wrong, I've had nothing but positive experiences in Hawaii, and do not believe the Hawaiian people have a higher percentage of racist assholes than any other people group anywhere. But it does happen.

Strange thing about most people from shithole places........when they leave their shithole place they try to turn their new place into a shithole. Just ask any native Floridian or North Carolinian what they think of the Massholes, New Yorkers and Jersians who move down to escape their northern shitholes.

A shithole is a shithole. It doesn't matter whether it is a third world shithole or an American shithole, it is still a shithole.

For example- Somalia is a shithole, but so is most of New York City
