    Its not peculiar...black women have a rough road...what particularly makes them disdainful is black males attraction to white women.
    There is plenty of anti white racism....anyone that believes racism is a one way street is quite naive.

I thought Mexico was a North American country with European roots (in Spain) just like the United States has roots in England and Canada has roots in England and France. By far the most troubling thing he said was that all blacks should go back to Africa and all whites should go back to Europe. To me that sounds like a racist statement against both black people and white people. Do you agree?

    Btw, I'm white, but I didn't come here from Europe. I was born here. Almost everyone I know who's black was also born here. And I think his history is wrong. Mexico is not a Native American tribe.
    Dude sounds like an ethnocentrist nationalist.

    The difference between Mexico and US/Canada is that the vast majority of Mexicans are mestizo - meaning a mix of Spanish and native blood. Whereas in the United States, the vast majority of the population are the descendants of European immigrants who displaced the natives and eventually sequestered them in reservations. So the European heritage/identity in Mexico isn't as strong as it is in Canada and the US.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Re: Is there such a thing as anti-white racism?

    As for the poll, before I answer, I think we should agree on the meaning of the word racism:

    The definition of racism is controversial both because there is little scholarly agreement about what the word "race" means, and because there is also little agreement about what does and doesn't constitute discrimination.

    (snip)

    Some sociologists have defined racism as a system of group privilege.

    Racism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    How we define the word changes whether it was or not. This example seems more like prejudice to me.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Absolutely, I have experienced it more than once. Of course, I am man enough to keep my chin up and keep going, unlike many whiners on this forum ...

    uh nonsense.

    Well that could be one reason, but I assure you that in the case of these women it was not. The one guy I'm friends with he is totally cool, although he personally can tell me why he doesn't like certain white people he doesn't hate all of them in general. His wife though is just crazy racist. Funny thing is, their daughter is only a little younger than me and my wife and got knocked up and married a white guy so they must be having fun with that.

    Just in general though while not all most black women I have ever been in contact with for over an hour have in general been very unpleasant. As for the remark about Japanese I know a like of Japanese at work that actually are more sexist than racist, as they don't believe any of the women there should do what we do that they should only do office work or jobs associated with women traditionally like nurses. They do run around going "Baku American" from time to time, but I've heard a lot of them don't really care for the Chinese or Taiwanese which I can understand with some bad history...

    There is such a thing as anti-white racism although I think a lot of people mislabel things that aren't that as that.

    LOL, neither one of those guys is racist against white people. Please.

    BTW, remember that time you said it was okay to be suspicious of black people on college campuses because there's a good chance they don't deserve to be there?

    IMO - Only bigots think Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are really anti-White or racist.
