Are you racist? is it a big deal?
what do you think of black / white people?
Perfectly fine with all shapes, sizes, colors. My attraction to opposite-race women would easily detail this. Ha.
I don't think it's a huge deal if somebody is as long as they keep it to themselves and not scream it at everyone around them.
i have no issues with black or white people as long. it is just matter of treating your fellow human being how you would like to be treated.
life is about colours.
I am not a racist by all means, my best friend in high school was half black.
I am not a racist because when you cut both skin you get the same color blood. No one knows which color is best anyway. We weren't given a choice at birth anyway
I'm black. any deal?................
I don't mind about colors or race... All crap.
No, race doesn't really make a difference to me. There are good and bad human beings of all races. I'm more concerned with what is inside and how people treat each other.
I am not a racist, all the people in this world are fair. there is no super race in this world.
I accept all people, and find myself very attracted to black women.
I am not a racist, all the people in that world are same there is no color and race complex............
I am not. All races are for humans. And all humans are for happiness and good relationships. Colors are for fashion, black goes with white and the other way around.
Though I do not believe myself to be a racist, I do find myself bothered by some of the behaviors involved with the stereotypical black/Hispanic races (not that it's only the Black and Hispanic people doing it either). More so that so many people buy into it with such gusto. Every time I see someone wearing their pants around their knees or a bandana covering what looks like all of their eyes, I just find it ridiculous.
It really just makes me wonder if these people are so lacking in true depth and personality that they need to cling to these stereotypical pictures of what you're supposed to be, or how you are supposed to dress. I guess I just can't imagine it being comfortable to have you pants hanging off of you like that. I would rather be comfortable than dress the way other people think I should.
I believe that the age of racism is over, that tolerance towards your fellow man is more prevelant now than ever before. I'm sure there are some holdouts, but for the most part I feel that future generations will be so far removed from the hatred and fear that darkened our history that it will be a non issue.
I love all people equally. If everyone could do that then we wouldn't have any problems in the world.
I am not a racist. Colour of the skin makes no difference to me at all. We are all human beings , children of God .
http://www.workingagainstracism.org/fighting.html yes it is a big deal.... racism and bullying have a lot in common?
i don't care about race. what i do care about is the persons character.
I come from a very mixed family, so I can't be racist. Here is the thing, you can't out every person of a single race in a category and say that every person is the same. I will say though, I have met some people who are plain ignorant, and they have been from ALL different races.
I am not a racist. I lived in an era when racism was the norm. Life is unpleasant for all parties involved, especially the one who is the object of racism. Racism is a big deal because for some reason one individual has it in his head that he is above or better than another person. For that type thinking, a lot of valuable talent, love and friendships never come to the potential they were meant to be. People are killed because some people think they are better or superior to other people. Racism is evil and causes evil things to happen.
I am def. not racist. I love everyone, all colors all sizes.
I always wonder if people who are racist ever sit back and think about this -- being prejudiced against someone for something as trivial as skin color.
No, I'm not racist, and I used to think it wasn't really a big deal in the world anymore. Then I realized that I just live in a very sheltered, homogeneous part of the world so I had just had limited exposure to people actually expressing racist opinions. Since then, I've spent a lot more time with people with different colors of skin, different accents, and often people with different countries of origin, and my naive ideas about racism fading away were completely crushed. My stepson is black, and he came to visit us for the first time last summer -- and I have never been more ashamed of so many people in my hometown.
I'm not racist; I do think that most ppl hold to certain stereotypes that they believe to be true; even if it's proven wrong.
Racism actually is one of the top most misused words in the English language. Racism is actually a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering discrimination between different races. A person can't be 'racist.' It's a form of governmental control.
Prejudice, on the other hand, leans more towards the personal level, and is defined by a person's acting on discriminatory beliefs.
It is not unnatural for humans to distinguish between different races. It is perfectly natural for one certain race to only be attracted to his or her same race, but when it comes to the hate and the discrimination... It just doesn't make any sense. We didn't choose what race we were to be born into. I acknowledge the different races, but I do not act upon my reaction to the differences in humanity enough to impede on my lifestyle.
Prejudice on the basis of race is an outdated, archaic, absurd remanent of our tribal past, when our ancesters feared those who appeared different than themselves. At this point in history, I do think it is a big deal for anyone to persist in these views, especially when rooted in some idea of racial superiority. It is wrong, and it generates hatred and violence. If you don't think ideas such as this can be dangerous, you should visit the Holocaust Museum in DC. Quite iluminating.
It's my belief that we all, that's ALL...100% of us make prejudgments about people. But that is not necessarily hateful or fearful of each other, just, "i didn't know".
As a black man who is very well spoken, I see people's facial expressions change drastically when i start talking to them, as if they had expected "wacka flocka" to come out of my mouth, and were extremely surprised to hear eloquence and intelligence.
But upon realizing they were mistaken in their own prejudgment, we usually move forward in our communication without prejudice and without incident.
As for me, I make a lot of prejudgments, about all races, including my own, but racist? Hell no!

I hate racism, I hate racist people, I think the Civil War was over slavery. I've seen this country embrace the self evident truth that all men are created equal, and the doctrine of Martin Luther King, until now.People get fired from their jobs and shunned from society (rightfully so) for spouting...

A question to all the North Americans on the forums:Is race really a "big thing" in the US? The general impression I get from news, movies and just general social interactions with American citizens is that race seems to play a significant role in the national psyche. If you are a US...

‘Reverse Racism’ - Is there such a thing?If you are White, have you ever felt discriminated against by a person of another race or a person belonging to a ‘minority’ group.

We're all racist in some ways. But racism by white people seems to be more newsworthy and gets more attention than racism by others. There are many people who work hard to not do anything to offend their fellow human, but it's impossible to escape prejudice - it's hardwired into our...
