    Why is it that these people have these engrained gender and race prejudices, and feel like everyone else should have to accomodate them? They issue these proclamations as if they're factual. It's kind of ridiculous, really.

    IMO it's because it makes them feel better about their own 'isms' if they believe that everyone is afflicted with the same issues.

    I turned around once, and had my head split open. the only thing I heard was, "that will teach your white ass" --I never saw the guy before, or after. but I carry a life long scar between my eyes due to it.

    I think that they like to think that their biased view of the world is "normal."

I just don't like to use those two words because it puts people on the defensive and triggers massive amounts of denial as opposed to having rational and open debate about it.

    Re: Have You Ever Experienced Racism?

    I have rarely (if ever) experianced racism directed at myself...that I was aware of.

    I have seen and heard about racism, but not directly seen it except for a few instances.

    I have probably made decisions while keeping in mind the background of a person I am looking at, and race is part of that backgroud.
