To be or not to be ....Racist.

Why all of a sudden can white people be the only racists? What gives?

  • Well, I know I have a bigoted blindspot ... aimed right at willful stupidity. Since I include racists in that bunch, does that make me racist ~ or just intolerant against the responsibility and common sense challenged that we share the globe with?

  • Im Hispanic and have been called racist because I dont support Obama. Apparently the racist thing covers all people when it needs to be played. Just ignore it. I KNOW I am not a racist and have had to deal with my own racist issues towards my family living in the south. Unless someone has truly been a victim of racism I really think throwing the term around is far too easy.

  • I have encountered racists from several races. A couple of them are even racist against their own race

  • I am white. I've been told that I'm racist when ever I complain about a person of any other race. Like, I don't care for the president and that apparently makes me racist.

    Ok... so how does that make only white people racist? And just because you don't like the president doesn't mean your racist. Now if you don't like the president because he's black... then ya, you're racist. But if you don't like him because you're conservative and he's liberal, then you're not racist.

  • I feel like its a big issue. I saw a lady with a shirt on promoting a college for black students only which read "the blacker the college the sweeter the knowledge"
    isnt that racist? what would happen if it was the other way around? I would never wear something like that. But she can and its fine with society, if a white person would do it you couldnt hear the end of it,

  • Well then those peeople who say that are dumbasses. There are racist people of all races, It's sad that racism still exists. But don't worry about what other people say, you know what is in your heart.
