It is as if they aren't happy unless they are unhappy.
    Ummm a conservative... OPd this thread.

    Perhaps, just perhaps, that happened because your perspective on race doesn't fit what life in America actually is?

    I.E. in America, white privilege truly does exists and reverse racism doesn't?
    I used to work as the only white guy in a group of blacks and they used to always talk about how black people can not by definition be racist. It would drive me nuts, however it was only a few of my coworkers that would talk like that. Also, i lived in a working class neighborhood and a mexican lady told me that because im of Yugoslavian decent i was in the process of gentrification against all the needy and less fortunate. It really upset me considering i had been homeless and my parents had both died when i was 18 and everything i had achieved to get into that low income neighborhood was from hard work, im talking 18 hour days for weeks at a time. Reverse racism definitely doesnt exist, its called racism

    Well i personally think its that attitude that really creates more animosity, if you will, to white people.

    Its just as our foreign policy, we have instituted more economic colonialism and caused more starvation and 3rd world collapses in the name of economic entrepreneurship then any other nation has ever done on the planet. Then we make excuses as to why its ok for us and that they shouldn't bother asking for our help, when in reality we went to them with the faulty loans in the first place. Which, creates a failed foreign policy that upsets natives around the world, and then when their nation fails and their friends and family get killed because of an american war on drugs, with american fire arms sold by american government, the people there are going to be very very upset with america.

    Yes, white people have done alot of good but weve also done alot of bad. So has middle easterns, so has asians, so has indigenous americans, so has africans. However, people fail to make a connection with, is every time we get a huge government as humans we create atrocities. No race is inherently bad, no race is inherently good. But the mental thinking of they are just jealous is a big factor of tension for these people especially for the ones that have succumbed their culture to modern american imperialism.

    It's fine that you think that, but it really doesn't change the way I see it. There is nothing we can do to change that perception in any meaningful way. What it amounts to is that it is human nature to be hateful and jealous if you perceive that you may not be getting all the respect that you "deserve". The only way that there will not be racial divides on this planet, is when there is no more race. When we are all homogenous in skin color. Of course, there will just be something else to be envious about at that point, so it's rather moot. I don't waste my time and effort trying to appease someone who dislikes me based on my skin color, or anything else that I have no control over.

    Its that mentality that allows the corrupt and failed foreign policy to exist, and if your fine with it then so be it. However, i am not suggesting the "apeasement of hateful jealous people" as you put it, but rather if we change our attitude about our own lives as Americans when it comes to things on foreign policy and such, maybe people will start emulating us rather then hating us.

    Yea you can say that, about racism, but acting like we're better and people are just jealous about it is really going to add fuel to fire.

    I don't think we're better. I think that we all have something of value that we can bring to the table. I'm just saying that I won't waste my time and/or my breath.

    And again, some white people are nerdy and like wine, not that one must be nerdy to like wine. And some black people prefer something other than wine while I'm sure there are a lot of black people who also enjoy wine. The color of the people in the ad shouldn't be an issue at all if we are looking at it from a purely non-racist perspective. In the ad, the folks who were nerdy and liked wine just happened to be white. The folks who preferred something else just happened to be black. It could have been the other way around or the people in the ad could have been Asian or American Indian or Arab or Hispanic or racially ambiguous.

    Until we stop seeing color of skin everywhere and start seeing skin color as of no more importance than eye color or hair color, racism will remain alive and well.

    I agree completely. Just waiting for everyone to not only figure that out, but act on it.
