I have been reading a lot of post all over cafemom...in several groups...and there seems to be a common theme amoungst them...

"Racism, only whites can be racisit. And ALL other races suffer because of whites supreme naturer in our society."

Personaly I find that anyone can be racist. Not just one perticular group. Plus, I feel that everyone has faced some sort of racism to some degree (some more than others). I do not think its fair to just single out any race and make them the 'bad guy'. In my opinion I feel we all can be socially/morally ignorant at times.

Anyhow, my question is this...Do you think that its true, one race is seen (media wise) as more surpior then another? Do you feel that racism is a HUGE factor in how our society is run ie. jobs, pay, treatment, or even public assistance?

OR

Do you think our fellow cafemom'ers are just bored and are trying to start drama where really there is no drama? That our society has evolved past this racism, and that people need to move on?


Disclaimer: I am not making this post to start a race war. I am just honestly curious, and wanted to see the views or opinions of my fellow adult cafemom'ers. I hope that we can have a true discussion without any fighting. Your opinion is valued even if we do not agree on it. Thanks :)

Racism is discrimination or bigotry of a particular race.  And it exists in all races, sadly.

This. Racism discriminates indescriminately.

I think racism exists in all races, it is just not one race over another. Sadly, it exists all over the world and there is still slavery today too.

Oh hell no! I have had black patients refuse to allow white employees touch them. I have several other examples.

It exists in all races. Some try to make it out to be about race when its really not.
