    His comments are not far from the truth. As a black man we are under a stigma. I have watched people cross the street because they are scared. My wife and daughter were refused an upgraded room on the basis of the racist counter clerk. I mean people can say it is not that prevalent, but it is. It is just harder to notice because people keep it under raps for fear of reprisals.

    In fact I agree with him. I notice little things like the Chicago Fireman in my scuba class who is friendly to everyone but me. Would not even talk to me if he could avoid it. The cop who stopped me and searched my bag for not other reason than I was walking down the street coming form work in the early morning. These are things most white people don't see or have to put up with. Getting pulled over constantly because I was driving a Conquest Tsi and black. No other reason to pull me over, none. In a conversation with Mac he brought up the constant stupid questions like "why do blacks do "insert stupid stereo type" from white friends and acquaintances. They don't mean to be insulting, but it is. Hell I have friends on Facebook from childhood who make comments like "you are black? when did this happen" and similar jokes because I don't speak Ebonics or listen to rap. They are just being funny and think it's a joke. They have no idea how insulting it actually is. Like the music I listen to defines me as a person.

    You can say it's racist all you want, but it's not. It is just an unfortunate stigma that black males deal with our entire lives here in the good old USA.

    If you think that is racist, well hehehe **** you and the horse you road in on.
    And where exactly was this 'racist clerk?' And what did this 'racist clerk' say to indicate the decision was based on race? And how does a cop tell from behind that you are black. I can never determine the race of a driver from behind a car. Of course you NEVER inadvertently offend anyone. NOT!~

    These people don't realize that racism no longer exists.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    im not going to say racism doesn't exist.... because it does.

    I am going to say that systematic racism doesn't exist... or at least is very localized in certain areas.

    Individual racism does and will continue to exist until the extinction of humanity...... That is unfortunate.

    I agree and my black friends have told me they think affirmative action has hurt blacks far more than it ever helped. What would and has helped blacks is for them to help one another, like my friend who chose not to have children, but works and pays the way of her nieces and nephews in college to give them a better chance. Achievement always comes with sacrifice. Whites have been slaves and they have also suffered discriminaiton in this country. Read the history of the Irish in America. But whites have make the sacrifices it took to overcome it.

    No? Then how do you know they didn't just realize that they needed to be on the other side of the street soon because their location was on the other side?

    Did the hotel clerk say, "Im not giving you negros an upgrade because I don't like you."

    No?

    How do you know the hotel upgrade had ANYTHING to do with the race of your wife and daughter?

    Are you jumping to the conclusion that the person was racist without any evidence whatsoever? Its okay if you are, it seems to be the norm in society. I mean, hell, I should know, as a cop who is accused of racism on a regular basis by complete strangers who have only heard me say, "Good evening, can I see your license and registration please".
    No I am not. I admitted in some cases I am not certain, hell I am only human. In those cases I listed it was because of skin color, period. You also know I am one of those that complain loudly about the thin skinned reactions to racism. So come again?

    This is true. Cops check people out who are walking down the street. Do you realize how many "Suspicious Person" calls we get from people about other people walking down the street early in the morning? What makes you assume the police officer was racist rather than just doing his damned job. Did he say anything specific? Did he say, "Hey nigger, I know you got **** in your bag im going to search it because you are a thief just like all black people" ? No? Okay.
    He was nice and friendly to everyone but me. Everyone else was white. What does this tell you? I was not the only male in the class. I was however the only black male in the class. He went out of his way to stay away from me to the point that other people noticed. What does this tell you?

    I was a cop, so don't play that doing his job **** with me. If I was white, I would not have been stopped. If I was white, I would not have been pulled over so many times in the town a Matteson, Illinois I had to threaten a lawsuit. What does this tell you?

    I was a cop. Yes I know. I also had to threaten a lawsuit and they stopped. This was in what? 87? Don't act like I am some kind of moron, please.

    Quote Originally Posted by Caine View Post

    I was not breaking any law, I WAS A COP.

    I love Cain, I really do. This is however a perfect example of how conservatives try so hard to deny racism exists.

    That he considered you to be obnixious, perhaps. There are plenty of black and white people I do not like because they are obnoxious. You are quickly stacking up to be one of them.

    And how do you determine race from the rear of a car? Anyone who believes this bull need to go out and try it.

    Are you being facetious because all those examples are people thinking of or treating blacks as inferior, which by definition is racism?

    Yes because everyone acts in person just like they do on the internet. Or hell it could be I am annoyed by moronic questions like I have to lie or exaggerate about it to prove racism exists. My god.

    I don't know if I passed them or they saw me from behind or the front. I just know I never got a ticket and had to threaten a law suite. Comprende?
