    I look at this way. They deserve the benefit of the doubt. It is their experience not mine or yours and I tend to trust their judgement first. Racism is often very subtle and more easily noticed by the person(s) it is being directed to. I can't really stand on the outside, not knowing anything about it on a personal level, and trust my judgement first. Also, in context a "sensitivity" to racism makes sense. They've earned it, in my opinion. This is not to say that it is never detected by someone in error.

    So whenever there's any doubt, automatically assume the white guy is a "racist" just in case?

    No, we should assume that blacks are criminals. Since according to you, they are more likely to be.

    Not the same thing. No. Want I mean is that I don't dismiss it. I assume there is a chance it is present and listen before I judge.

    Some good points.

    Think about this though:

    Who would you feel more racist towards?

    1.) People who don't assume you are being a racist for a very large percentage of things you do or ways you believe

    or,

    2.) People who do, and already think you are racist and turn things you do or ways you believe into racism before you even do said things or believe certain ways.

    I thought you meant when black people say something is "racist" they automatically deserve the benefit of the doubt.

    There's nothing to run from. That is a cold, hard fact that they commit a disproportionate amount of crime despite only being 13% of the population. They commit over half of all violent crime in the country and I posted FBI and Justice Dept stats proving it...several times.
