    I'm aware of the context of this quote but I still don't fully understand what he means, so I'm having a hard time w/ the poll. do you think it's just about not being racist? aside from slavery, what else are only white people guilty of?

    To be fair- white people are not the only race on earth that have ever owned slaves. Many, many cultures in the past have had slaves.

    No, I'm still pretty much the same scheming blackguard as I was the day before yesterday.

    yes, oops. well I meant whites in the US, since the slave-owners here were of that variety. I'm thinking his whole comment, though he probably didn't put much thought into it, was probably just implying that racism is dormant in all whites--we may have stopped actively abusing and terrorizing blacks, for the most part, because that is what's popular now, but in our hearts we still think of them as inferior. and I think that is a pretty nasty implication for this guy to make.

    some whites will always be racist and some whites never were. just like some yellows have always been mellow and some just can't seem to unwind.

    Depends on one's perspective. I have always embraced what *I* think is "right".

    Jim Crow laws and discrimination against black voters. There are still people alive who fought for civil rights during that period. Wonder if I beat Hatuey to the punch on this one?

    Not that I really care about any of that since I wasn't alive, but those things were pretty bad too.

    I had overlooked those because I figured that all groups in america had been racist towards other groups at some point, not just whites, but you're right in that it was actually legislated discrimination.
