    Re: A family's year of 'buying black'

    In some areas, whites can buy black. For instance, our company uses a black-owned company to wire our phones, computer connections, etc. We also use black-owned companies for some of our other on-site services. I am white, and everybody else in the company, except one, is Iranian-American.

    So why do we buy black? Simple. With all the discrimination that still goes on, a successful black-owned company in some fields gets where it is because it really is better than just about everyone else. That has been borne out by our experience too.

    To us, its not really about race. The black-owned companies we have hired outperformed every other company we ever used in those fields. We simply want the best.

The reality is that white pride is almost always accompanied by by racism whereas ethnic pride is generally positive. The reason, I would speculate, is that whites tend not to be proud of their race, but their nationality. Irish pride, German pride, American pride etc is much more common than white pride, and when somebody does express strong white pride it's usually to contrast themselves with minorities.
    RIIIIGHT!

    Black people are sooooo sweeeet sooooo puuuure they'd NEVER harbor any baaad feelings about white folks. Oh, no. Of course not. That video you saw from the white media was nothing but lies!


    What the video really showed you was Damien "Football" Williams catching a METEOR that bounced off Reginald Denny's head. He was just a little to slow, and that's what ol' addled pated Reggie was apologizing for at poor Damien's trial, that his head hurt the meteor.

    Black people just can't hate white people. They's too nice. Really.

    What makes you think "ethnic" pride is positive ? Ever heard the term White Devil ?

    Also, do you wonder why you chose the NAACP instead of the Black Panthers ? The Panthers make a much better parallel to the Klan, and not surprisingly, the had plenty of racism to accompany their pride.
    The NAALCP aired race-baiting ads in the 2000 election falsely connecting George Bush to that truck dragging incident in Texas.

    The difference between the Panthers and the NAALCP is that the Panthers have the decency to be honest about their hatred.

    You know, he could have lynched him, like white people way down south used to do to blacks all the time, if they wanted to vote.

    What I can't stand is that black people who walk around acting like ****ing retards, being rude to white people, asian people, latin people, etc are more tolerated. Like on the train, for instance, when some little thug gets on the train being loud and rude, everyone just looks at each other and raises an eyebrow like "he's black, what did you expect?" But if an asian or a white person or other acts that way, people are quick to make their observations about said behavior rather openly.

    The only way it will stop is if blacks are treated like everyone else and the whole race crap is tossed aside like yesterday's paper...because really, it is yesterday's news.

    Absolutely impossible to get more than the occasional sale in with those people. They referred to each other, and that was that. And since my step-daughter was half-black and we lived in a large apartment complex that was more than half-Korean (and immigrant and temporary resident Korean at that) I got to see first hand how they felt about this "racial tolerance" idea America has.

    They weren't having none of it. That little girl played with the Iranians and the white kids, the Koreans wouldn't have anything to do with her.

    Why is that, you didn't ask.

    The black kid gets away with being rude and obnoxious because....you're a god damned racist if you say anything and you'll be sued if you complain, and he'll get a prize.

    That's wild. I have had such an amazingly different experience with the Koreans here and in other places. I had a roommate in college who was half Spanish and half Korean and she talked me into going to teach conversational English at a hagwan in Seoul for a short stint. I dunno, maybe since I have been immersed in their culture, I get along with them well.

    Of all the Asian ethnicities, I find the Koreans to be the friendliest, most fun, and open to other races.

    But not the Japanese. Oh never the Japanese.

    Hey, it was really nice of young Damien to catch that meteor before it damaged the road, wasn't it?

    I've been to Korea. Wonderful place, nice people. My black shipmates hated it, because they weren't treated nicely.

    I've worked on joint projects in the US staffed in large part by South Korean nationals. Wonderful people, so long as you don't object to them chewing with their mouth wide open. Many of those same Koreans lived in the apartment complex I described. They hate black people. That's it.

    The japanese....same way, but worse. No country is more racist than Japan. It just doesn't show up because there's not that many non Japanese living there. But even there most of the people are friendly and pleasant. Just don't ask to marry their daughters or move in next door.
