    Re: Is racism wrong?

    I wonder if the races will ever mix to the point that it really won't matter, to the point that we won't be able to tell by looking at someone where their ancestors came from? If that ever happens, then maybe Martin Luther King's dream will actually come to pass, that every child will be judged on the content of his character.

    What difference does it really make whether the pres is a "mulatto", an African American, a "halfrican", or what? Isn't it the content of his character, along with his ideology and ability to get things done that really matters?

    Not that it matters. Most "black" people living in the United States have more English blood in them than I have.
    It is very well an outdated word and you know it was used druing slavery. Obama calls himself black and should be addressed as a black male.

    His race was not played down.

    He had babies with one of his slaves and I saw the family of that slave on Oprah.

    A lot of words were used during slavery. There's nothing wrong with the word "mulatto", and the man was raised by his "white" mother and her "white" parents. We can't just claim to be members of whatever race we want; as stupid as the whole issue is, there are rules to it.

    Re: Is racism wrong?

    Partisan, I simply cannot fathom how someone who is seemingly educated can be so prejudiced. I am being serious, no jokes here. Did something actually happen to you during your lifetime that made you thus? It would seem so, or maybe your parents are also prejudiced and racist and it has rubbed off on you.

    'Cause I can tell you honestly right after 9/11 I was made fun of by whites and I soon started hating white people. Of course I was a teen then so I was pretty naive, but I learned things about the world, and thus my world-view quelled my hate.

    Also I still can't believe people put "no" as their answer. The U.S. really is a stupid country.

    I don't know, but its bullsh*t. Its been proven time and again over centuries and decades that whites are not always the smartest of most advanced people on Earth.

    Either you are trying to get a reaction out of me or, as I said above, you are inherently prejudiced.

    F*cking think about it for a second, you are judging people based on the variety of pigmentation in their skin cells.

    To me personally, yes......
    To my person, no.......

    No, I grew into it during a lifetime of observation.....

    I was working in New York on 9/11, I lived about 70 miles north in a little village called Chelsea, that was the longest ride home in my life.....
    That was the day that I realized the 'crescent' was darkening the sky & Islam needed to bo scourged from this earth......

    Also I still can't believe people put "no" as their answer. The U.S. really is a stupid country.[/

    We are only stupid in that we allow foreign third world scum into our country to drag us down.....

    I don't know, but its bullsh*t. Its been proven time and again over centuries and decades that whites are not always the smartest of most advanced people on Earth.
    Then why are people of 'color' constantly whining about white supremacy if it has no basis in fact?......

    True to a point....
    But I've drawn my conclusions from a lifetime of observation.....
    It is far more about culture than skin pigmentation....
    Some call it racist, I call it common sense....
    I will be civil to anyone as long as they are civil to me.....
