    How do you prove you are not racist?

    And from your past experience with other race, who do you find to be more of a racist, BlacK Or White? when last did you invited someone over from a different race to have dinner or to attented a social event with you and your family?

    The only proof required to proove any personal virtue is to oneself,  why do you or anyone have to prove this, except in how you live out  your life   day to day !   Racism , prejudism , hatred , bias or  any of the personal emotional feelings we  ALL  have , are present within each and every heart in this world.   The thing to remember is this , each moment , each word we speak , each thought we have ! All of this is  proof to ourselves ,one way or the other.  No other proof required!

    i don't have to prove it. no one does actually. people will know if you are just by being around you. i have friends from asia, jamacia etc., and i never really give any thought about their race until i see questions like this.

    Every single person in the world is racist or prejudiced to some degree. The human race has xenophobia - that's how come the first humans out of Africa became separate strains of visual differences.

    I think it is very difficult to prove you are NOT something.  You have to prove it by the way you live your life and the way you deal with people.

    I don't think that being a racist can be laid more on one race or the other.  I think it is about individuals and their personal actions.

    You prove you are not a racist by demonstrating that you treat all people equally or pretty close to equally. However, since human beings naturally gather in groups of people similar to themselves, it's hard not to be a racist in the very smallest sense of the word.

    You shouldn't have to prove it. Just live your life "as if" you aren't, even if you are, and let it be at that. Inviting over someone of a different race just to prove that you aren't racist really only has the opposite effect in my opinion.

    Actually, I never feel I have to prove my feeling. I try to live by the Golden Rule. But if anyone has a problem with different races--get a job in a public school. You will love all the children no matter what race. When one of the students had a question, or made a remark about race--I would let them talk it out, then I would always ask them to tell me the color of love.
    How anyone could feel anything but love for children of all races, these sweet little children look at you with love in their eyes, so trusting, wanting to learn all they can, How can this still be an issue is beyond me.

    There is no thing for me to prove.  No thing.

    Just stop with the program to divide.  Stop making problems where none exist.  The internet knows no race.

    If it  makes you feel better,..........never mind..........you do not need to know where my very best girlfriend is from.  You do not need to know of the tortures she suffered.  You do not deserve to know how American soldiers rescued and freed  her villiage. 

    Get beyond.........black/white................just grow up.

    And I certainly, have NO obligation to PROVE my views to you.

    I dont have to prove anything to anyone.
    In the end, my life is not between me and people.
    It is between me and God.

    If you're forced to prove it, you'd need to have every one of of your actions monitored for a considerable amount of time.   How goes the saying?   "By their actions you will know them."   No amount of talk can substitute for actual behaviour.   

    Oh, and the chances are we're all racist to some extent, even those of us who do not realize it.

    Of course, a more common thing is to be racially self conscious, i.e. conscious that you might be deemed racist.  This in itself causes awkwardness - another thing we're probably all subject to to lesser or greater degree.

    I don't think you need to prove that you are not a racist. If you know for yourself that you are not, that is just fine.

    There is no Proof of not being a Racist. It´s not like you take a course and then you will receive a certificate.

    You should treat everybody like you want to be treated and if you make exceptions for certain people just because of their origin or color then you are a Racist.

    As long as you treat them with respect, it will show that you are not racist. Avoid stereotyping and saying offensive things to them. Be extra sensitive when dealing with them, because you might not realize that you have hurt their feelings, since they have different culture and values. It also helps to learn a little bit about their culture.

    Racist is promoted as being a bad word, but in actuality, we are all racists because what we do/say is always predicated by "race" of those either in our company or who our communication is directed towards. Racism is always confused with disrespect and/or dishonor. It is okay to have a preference, but when that preference offends, dishonors or jeopardizes someone else's safety, security or rights to enjoy life, that is where the problem begins. BTW there is only one race (human). Governments and media have a job to promote "racism" to keep the masses separated while they maneuver themselves into position for "checkmate" (Post 9/11 Patriot Act).
