Racism Is a Myth
Sometimes I think we're alone. Sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering. ~ R. Buckminster Fuller

It is sad to hear stories of racism. The first one that comes to my mind was this one time I had went to a party with a black male friend of mine and was the only white female inside the home. Anyways we were there maybe about an hour when my friend comes up to me and said we got to get the **** out of here and now.
I had already had a few drinks and was enjoying myself so was like I am not leaving you go ahead and I will catch a ride with someone. He was like no we are leaving NOW! By that time he was kinda screaming and pulling me out. Anyways once we got in car and drove off?
He explained to me that a bunch of the girls were gonna jump me and cut me up because "that white bitch does not belong up in here". I had NO CLUE this was happening and thank goodness my friend overheard it and got me the hell outta there
That did not/does not stop me from going to similar parties after that nor from hanging in the "hood". I will not allow a bunch of racist bitches ruin where I go but it did make me more aware of my surroundings and to have my ears very much open. And trust me I do get plenty of mean looks, etc. But nothing to that extent.
Also I have been out with non-white friends and get dirty looks from white folks-as in-what are you doing with them. It is sad. Also notice if going into shops with non-white friends? The salesclerks seem to follow and watch us a little more close than they would just me.
I see somewhat racism or grouping at work due to the way whites and blacks seem to avoid each other. I jump in with both crowds
Those are just a few off top my head.

FWIW, I don't necessarily view whites as "more my kind" than blacks. A black or Latino police officer would be more "my kind" than a white sunday school teacher. To be truthful, a Latino gang member is more "my kind" than a white Sunday School teacher. I've spent more time around gang members than I have PTA members. I understand gang members, but PTA members get on my last damn nerve.
I wouldn't have a preference either way, all other things being equal. Preferring people on the basis of race isn't "natural" to me. I like people for who they are, not what their skin color is.

Okay, here's a prejudice I'll admit to. I hate people in mini-vans with those stupid Jesus fishes on the back. Today, I was driving back to the office and this chick in a minivan with 5 Jesus fishes on the back cut me off, and I thought...
"Would Jesus drive like that? I don't think so."
I don't know what color she was, though.
The people with those "choose life" license plates, too. I tend to prejudge them because several of them have tried to kill me while driving, as well. Apparently, their pro-life sentiments only apply to the unborn, and not adult heathens like me.
So, if I had to choose a neighborhood with a bunch of "choose lifers" and jesus fishers, versus one with a bunch of heathens, I'd definitely take the heathens.
Also, any girl (of any race), who self-labels as a diva, princess, or some other malarky should be forcibly norplanted and should not be allowed to breed.

You would think after that? I would be one of those white females you see that tense up whenever seeing a group of black males but I do not. I usually nod or may even say What's Up or How You Doing.
