    So when all you did was ask "does racism exist in the USA" and I come in arguing the obviously wrong answer, you don't think I'm being just as serious as your OP?

    Yes there's racism wtf did you think? Do you not pay attention to the news, you don't know about Ferguson? ****in black racists setting fire to their own town and everything over there and you can't figure out if their's racism or not in the USA? Whaaaat?

    And just in general, asking yes/no questions is a horrible way to try and start a conversation. Better to use open ended questions instead, and invite opinion.

    Who cares about racism in the USA? Why do we have to care about that? What about in Turkey where a black man can't even marry a white skinned woman easily?

    Not using the term 'nigger' is racist. There ya have it, folks. It doesn't get any more backwards than that.

    It doesn't matter if you're white or black. People of all skin color, ethnicity and nationality are ignorant as to what constitutes racism as opposed to racial bigotry.

    Is it your contention that racism and racial bigotry are the same thing? If not, what are the differences.

    One can care about both. Why are you acting like cares are mutually exclusive? What the hell sense does that make.

    I'm not. I'm saying, you people have a "US-Centric" view of race that pollutes your every post.

    Yes, still here. Better than the vast majority of the world, but the problem still pervades us. Is the situation improving? Sure, but it's still a process. Welcome to Earth, we're still doing this nonsense.
