    Way to stay classy America...

    So embarrassed at times to be American.
    Think of it this way: You could be a foreigner.

    2) Look how different cultures portray Jesus Christ. Although the New Testament includes no description of the physical appearance of Jesus before his death, most races paints Jesus looking like them. You have White Jesus, Black Jesus, Mexican Jesus etc. They can't even see Jesus being any other race because of his status.

    3) In our culture, the darker you are the less attractive you are. We are taught that the European image is most attractive. When Asians come to the US, they would get eye surgery to widen their eyes. In the black community, we still struggle with the notion that the fair skin babies with "good" hair are prettier than the dark skin babies with "nappy" hair.

    The list goes on and on.

    Being racist doesn't mean that you necessarily hate another race. It just mean that you place your race on another tier over everyone else.

    Chris Rock said it the best

    " No white person would ever want to be me and I'm rich "
    I disagree. I think there are plenty of beautiful black men and women. One who first comes to mind is the actor Denzel Washington. Plenty of beautiful black models and actresses too.

    Nobody would want to be Chris Rock because he's a goof, not because he's black.

    Human beings in every culture (who aren't mentally ill) are all ethnic and tribal. They prefer their own kind.
    That's how the real world works.
    Lately, those natural human traits have been used as an excuse to call people "racists" and marginalize them.
    It's just a weak, overused political tactic and people are beginning to see through it.

    It isn't debatable and this isn't a debate. Play rhetorical word games all you like. It's a fact that humans are a tribal animal.

    What specifically do you mean by the phrase "justify my racism"?

    So that's the reason for all the Obama bashing.
