    You probably have a point at that. For a white person, saying anything that might remotely be taken as racist is a good way to find everyone you know avoiding you like a leper.

    To be perfectly honest, my eyes and ears have seen and heard more racism by blacks against whites than vice-versa, in the past decade.
    I have two adopted black sons and I've gotten many more harsh comments and nasty looks from blacks than I have from whites

    if they are going to call you a racist no matter what you say then it really doesn't matter what you say, so you might as well say whatever you want and to hell with them

    Hey, I genuinely DON'T want to offend anyone. I have several friends who are black and I value them... of course, they aren't the kind to be all hypersensitive and get easily butt-hurt, which is good given my warped sense of humor.


    But I have regrettably known some folks that were so touchy it was almost impossible to talk to them at all.

    The problem with racism is most people are really trying to move on and look forward, but the Democrats won't let us. Without racism...Jesse, Al, Louis, and half the media would be out of a job.

    I find very little animosity between blacks, white, and Hispanics that see each other, work together, live close to each other, have kids that play ball together, or go to church or school together on a daily basis.

    Those that do carry that angst tend to be on the fringes of society and not in circles I'd bother frequenting anyway.

    In truth, there's FAR more animosity between blacks and Hispanics anyway. It's a stilted subject.

    Getting along etc I agree on, but it is there. It is not just the media etc perpetrating a lie. Racism is still out there, in greater numbers than we care to admit. It comes from all communities and different types of people. Just because you don't see it, does not mean it's not there.

    Have you ever been outside Texas? Blacks and Hispanics get along about as well as any other diverse group. If you go by just Texas white people also have a bigger problem with hispanics.

    Erod your theory is incorrect for the most part. No disrespect, just sayin.

    I guess what you call racism, I call just general observation and resulting opinion. There are stark differences between the state of the black community versus that of the white community, and racism has nothing to do with it.

    And you could not be more wrong about Texas. People do get along well here; it's a lie propagated by northeasterners.

    I travel a LOT. The most racist place I've ever been is Boston. By a mile.

    Agreed but that is not what I am talking about. The only thing that will help out with that is black people.

    Well how can you say blacks have a bigger problem with hispanics when that is blatantly not true? White in Texas due have a bigger problem with hispanics due to immigration. Tell me I am wrong?

    If Boston is the most racist place you have ever been, well you need to go other placed, lol.
