I love when people use the word love as a sarcastic word for hate.
what annoys me, is the scholarships and grants given soley on if your african american. if there was a scholarship for only white kids, people would have problems wouldn't they?
THANK YOU! It's so true! I'm all for equal treatment, but that is NOT equal treatment.
The Arizona law is the way it is because of these illegal Mexican people. I always hear people say "Oh, that's not fair, Mexicans do work that regular people wouldn't do, they just want equal rights," and crap like that. But at my school, I get picked on for being white. They get horrible grades, skip class, disrespect people. They think they own the place. Same thing with the two black girls in my second period class. They're SO LOUD, and if someone says something they don't agree with it's suddenly their place to yell at them and threaten to fight them. And everything is just "so racist" to them. One of the most racist things I've seen are the scholarships ONLY for Mexicans or African Americans. I mean, really? I don't even have a shot because of the color of my S K I N .
People need to learn the fucking definition of racism, and understand that RACIAL and RACIST are two different adjectives. If I say to my friend, "Look at that black guy over there", that's not racist. If I said "Why do black people always look so ghetto", THEN it'd be racist. People have such a problem even acknowledging race, and that's what aggravates me.
Its not really that its racist, but when black people say its fine (which it is) but if a white person says it, its racist. Which its not.
I'm so tired of seeing that crap about "my ancestors were enslaved by your ancestors, you owe me reparations"
Hey guess what, I'm Jewish---Egypt, I'm looking at you.
@17@179561 (Anonymous): I'm black and I think Jewish people deserve a shitload more respect than "us enslaved folks". :p
I wrote a paper on that actually...
This is so true! It's such a double standard and I'm sick of it. Everyone wants to be treated equally regardless of race, but if there's a disagreement, race comes in. This is the truest amirite up here. Thank God I'm not the only one who thinks this.
@Shiftworker: true...very true. but they have all the freedoms as everyone else. so its time for everyone to get over it.
this is true. :( i believe that racism is COMPLETELY wrong. it can't just be "sorta" wrong. if whites can't be racist then neither can blacks, or anyone for that matter. yes, i know it's going to still occur, but it's just a thought. racism is all around bad. that's for sure.
its not equal because nobody understands what discrimination is. Any separation of racial groups is discrimination, whether it be positive or negative. So anyone attacking any other person should be frowned upon the same as if they're black white latino or any other ethnic, religous or cultural group.
Not all black people just the ignorant ones that think they're above everybody.
so what that person up there is saying is that it's not our generations fault yet they're still accusing our generation. you're an idiot you totally contradicted everything you said.
i feel kind of on the fence about the minority scholarships. if you look at some of the poorest neighborhoods in your city, most of the people are african-american or hispanic, not white. that's just how it is, so some schools do have minority scholarships so that kids in these neighborhoods have an equal oppurtunity at a good education. i think that you shouldn't get worked up about it because a lot of schools offer many other scholarships that ANYONE can apply for.
Then have the scholarships be need based. Not according to the skin color, but according to the need. If a white kid is in the same situation, they should be able to have a chance at the scholarship as well.
No, there is alot white people that are so low on money. Some people are willing to help the white people, but its very rare.
If Black people need schooler ships, black people should earn them like everyone else. They should focus on there study's and extra curricular activities. And at the end of the day if they earn it, they earn it. That is if your talking about college schooler ships.
It's scholarships not schooler ships
it may be horrible (and i dont love it) but it is sorta true. omg when i voted it turned to 911! Creeeeepy!
Why would you low that? And anyway, it's not true.
I don't love that but it most certainly is true, so I gotta agree.
I disagree. Maybe people don't voice their judgements, but this post and your comment make it obvious that people still have them.
I always hear black people say, "Ha! Look at that white girl!" and it's not a big deal, but if a white person says, "Ha! Look at that black girl!" they're immediately yelled at and called racist. I've seen it multiple times.
Except it is a big deal -- when anyone says it. I guess it depends on where you live. Are you from the south?
Nope. Up north. New York, to be a little more exact.
Racism is awful. I don't mind a few racist jokes here and there, as long as they're not serious, or using it as a description ["See that black girl over there? She has an awesome haircut!"] but some people are just doing it to be racist or cruel or whatnot.
not really my friends that are white say hel look at that black girl and white girl all the time. I dont judge them, im black. I dont care if they say the n word all the time, i dont care. I dont see what the big deal about race is. there is no racism in my school, and im serious. If someone says "hey look that white or black girl has nice boobs," they are just using words to describe what they see. why hate on race when there is a pair of nice boobs right in front of you
Yeah. I have no problem with race.
It's just how most people think it's a double standard if you're black. Some don't give a shit, but others get super pissed.
Hmm. Well, let's see. I believe black people have suffered through generations of slavery & racism, plus continued discrimination even now. Of course, you personally did not cause that suffering as a white person in today's world (and you can make the argument "I shouldn't have to pay for what my ancestors did") but I think any visible minority (black, brown, etc.) has more than earned their right to laugh at other minorities or at the majority (white people). Sorry, but white people just have to put up with being called a racist when saying something about a minority. It feels more like an attack against the underdog than when it's vice versa.
They weren't directly affected, though. Their great great great great grandparents were. And everyone is equal, so it's not "attacking the underdog". There is still discrimination, I'm not saying there isn't, but it's just hypocritical of people to make fun of a race but yell at others who do it.
that's wrong. black people today are affected by it. that's why major sports (basketball and football) are dominated by black people because slave masters breeded the big strong ones. There aren't as many smart black people today because whites during slavery time would kill any black person they thought to be smart or educated.
Incorrect. Muscle and brain cells aren't involved during sexual reproduction.
yeah but the genes to create them are.
My teacher has talked about this so many times. If there is something in a body cell, it does not get passed to offspring. If a person is super strong, the strength isn't passed down. Any non-gamete trait mutations or anything of the sort that occur during an individual's life is not passed down.
I'm about to take a final on this. I know.
No but the ideology is passed down. Why do you think asians are so smart? It's cause parents forced them to study that hard cause they got the same treatment by THEIR parents
that is 100% the stupidest thing i have ever heard. some one from africa who moved to america five years ago could comment on a "white girl", and the girl could comment on the "black guy" and she would be the racist one. plus, i agree that all people are equal so the minority card doesn't apply, and what a person of one race can do a person of another should be allowed to do as well.
That is possible, the most racist thing I've heard thats serious.
Not exactly sure how to reply to that one. :)
They get judged...the ones who judge just get shot after wards so all we see are the ones who don't judge. :)
I am 1/2 hillbilly (WV), 1/2 redneck (MS), and am blond too. I know about discrimination! lol
HEY, lets see it's not the 1800's anymore. that was a long time ago. i agree that slavery is very wrong. But it does get on my nerves being called a cracker, or white girl. if i said hey black girl, i would be called a "racist". why do i have to be a white girl, i'm just a girl. why should it matter. So stop pulling the slavery card all the time, that excuse is old.
Get over it? Minorities are still at a disadvantage whether you want to believe it or not. Just look at the new Arizona law. Yes, everything has come a long way but it's not quite equal yet.
How is that racist? There on the MEXICAN border. they have the right to ask MEXICAN people they SUSPECT (there just stopping the shady ones) that might be illegal immigrants for there drivers license.
How can you tell if they're Mexican for Peurto Rican just by looking at them? All they have is their skin color. and how would a shady hispanic be considered an illegal? There are lots of illegals out there that aren't "shady." Just families trying to make a living.
It's funny cause back in the pre-civil war era people used to stop blacks that looked "shady" in case they were runaways so they had to carry papers proving they weren't
No, minorities can make fun of other minorities as well as the majority. But if the majority pokes fun at a minority it feels like more of an attack. Sorry, I'm gonna have to disagree with this one.
what minorities and majorities? everyone is equal. the fact that a "miniority" would consider themselves a minority and expect to be treated differently is just unfair and ignorant on their part.
That makes no sense what you just said... if there's one guy in a room full of black people, he'd be racist to figure himself a minority?
Well if you never were in a minority group how would you know how we were treated?
