    I do not know.
    I think the media does cut some slack, but not much. It was not always this way...
    I also think that there is a problem with so many being racist and not owning up to it.

    Can you prove folks are being turned down by race or is it just speculation by a bunch of people who cant stop blaming their race for all of their problems and take responsibility for their own actions???

    Unfair by the justice system? Dont violate the law and you wont have to deal with it. Otherwise, alot of what it has to deal with is mitigating and aggravating factors in the specific crime someone comitted. You cant just compare white/black, you have to examine the details for each case to make a comparison.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Its a word.......
    Whites say it in the south, whereas whites in Oregon just think it.

    What is the difference?

    Hidden racism is still racism.

    Besides, ignorant hillbillies in the south can use the word Nigger without realizing it since its 2nd nature to them....
    Ive seen folks go so far as to say, "Oh yeah, good ole Willie... he is a pretty cool nigger" talking about his black friend, who is no way offended by such a comment.

    The same rules cant be applied to some rural areas of the south as to the rest of the "PC" world.

    I would say yes to the first question, non whites do get more slack.

    On 2. I would say whites are no more or less racist than minorities
