    Re: Is everyone a little bit racist?

    Y'all...I spend a significant amount of time in inner city areas for my job. And, in June, I spent a week in Camden, NJ, with my friend Sam...who's black.

    Trust me when I say that my friend Sam has more negative racial views about black people he doesn't know than I do. I never really realized that until we were working in the hood together. Is that racism?

    I think we all have preconceived biases.

    Sterotypes are just that because they have some basis in fact.
    Why deny it?

    I will never become a full blown racist who thinks her race is superior but i'd be lying if i didn't say i have some sort of preconcieved ideas and bias.

    to be completely colorblind one would have to be infinitely stupid

    while there are a lot of stupid people i would say less than 1% possess the required degree of stupidity. and stupidity alone wouldn't be sufficient - they would have to be liberals on top of it.

    by the way you can totally be good friends ( because you like them, not for any twisted reason ) with black people and be very prejudiced at the same time.

    you can also be a good husband and very sexist at the same time. there is absolutely no contradiction here.

    in fact i would even say that i can be ( in fact i am ) racist, sexist and not a bigot at the same time. but i wouldn't hope for you to understand that.

    If Jesse Jackson spent 2 weeks in Camden, he'd leave wearing a sheet and hood.

    That place is enough to make a racist out of anyone.

    I gave ya a big ol' "Thanks" on that one Hatuey.

    But I would point out that if Captain America wrote "Kill ******'s" (which I would never do) I would get penalty points up the wazooo...

    Bull****. I know way to many people like myself who don't have a racist bone in their body.

    Again people are confusing "racism" with different forms of "bigotry."

    Racism is always bigotry, bigotry is not always racism, not even close.

    Exactly, and it probably is for something other than race. That is bigotry, not racism.

    With so many good reasons to hate someone, why choose race?

    Re: Is everyone a little bit racist?

    I have great friends so we joke around about race and give each other a hard time occasionally(just like all guys do) about religion, ethnicity, etc. I have a very diverse group of friends and we know each others limitations, personalities, and friendship chemistry. Does that make me racist?
