It's late. I'm tired. You're boring me. Maybe I'll come back tomorrow. Good night.

Of course meeting people is how you form opinions of people. Do you always form your opinions of people through studies that may or may not be biased? I've read plenty of material about racism, history, slavery, etc. throughout school, throughout college and also having been on DP and other debate sites. Sure I can gather some materials together. I'd also like for you to present your extensive research. Have you even finished college yet?In any case, since you question how uninformed I am, can you provide me with some of the research that you have based your conclusions on? Like I said, I'm very well read in this topic and you seem to just be basing your comments on anecdotes. In fact, it is very telling that your suggestion was not for me to do more research, but for me to "meet people" which, again, would just get me more useless anecdotes. So again, can you show me the research that you think will help me be more informed?
Racism is bad, no matter who does it. I truly have not read all the posts but I wonder why a right wing poll would pick this topic.

The fact there seems to be absolutely no shame or hiding use of these terms by blacks and nobody in the media seems to give a ****.
When I lived in "the county seat", I rode the bus that picked up all the kids in the "black neighborhood", and boy did they like to pick on the few white kids on the bus.
When I moved just outside of that city into the farming town, I again was riding the bus that had mostly black kids on it, but they were all really friendly to the one of 4 white kids on the bus.
In fact, in that small farming town I preferred black friends to whites out there........ but not in the city a whopping 10 miles away... Cultural thing I reckon.
