If bears are more likely to attack humans than raccoons are, would you react to both animals the same way? No, of course you wouldn't. It would make sense to be more wary when you encounter a bear in the wild versus encountering a raccoon in the wild. That doesn't mean you have something against bears. Doesn't make you a species-ist.
But the bear and raccoon are different species. Maybe a better example would be black and white dogs. But that's a great point

This just reeks of the same bullshit excuses made in the "White Privilege" thread a week ago. It is what it is. Racism exists.

Just because you want to pretend it doesn't exist does not make it so. You'll understand if you simply take the time out to speak to a person of color.

I'm a brown guy. I've experienced enough prejudice to know that any time I'm the only one of my skin tone in a room full of predominantly whites, blacks, yellows, etc., I will be judged, not by the character in which I portray myself but by the stereotypical character in which they themselves imagine me to be. The same goes for any other race, except for Whites.


I've said it once and I'll say it again:

This is coming from someone married to a white woman.

Default Re: people make me sick...

its not racism, so much as fear of the unknown. thats the honest truth if you look at the first video.

you have the white guy, the black guy, and then the girl. each got a reaction based on how much people actually thought they were capable of. black being the most unknown to a white community, got the most fear/anger responses.

racism is a hatred, its not what you see in this video. everyone has preformed assumptions based on appearance, and its not racism.

I remember watching a Nat Geo program a few years ago about the drug cartels down there in Mexico. A guy they interviewed said he expected it to soon escalate to an all-out war with complete corruption and collapse of the Mexican government.

Pretty crazy stuff. It feels like the modern day Wild West happening so close to the US. You have to think there will be more and more spillover of violence into CA, AZ, NM and TX.

I always lock my bike on this fence near the train station. It's the part of town with the heaviest foot traffic, so I always assume it's relatively safe. My bike is a racing bike, I guess to the untrained eye that makes it look more valuable than it is. A while back some fool locked my bike to the fence with another lock while I was gone, with the obvious intent to steal that shit at night.

So when I returned I called up a buddy to bring over some tools, so we could remove the second lock. It must have taken me 15 minutes to saw through the steel chain. We looked like total thieves. Two young men in hoodies sawing the lock off an expensive looking bike. It was the early evening and there must have been at least 70 people or so eyeballing us, but nobody even said a word. I'm thinking someone probably called the police, but still. Good to be white.

Be happy black people got equal rights in USA, I recently read that the president in South Africa said kill all white people and it looks like this pretty much all over the world were white people are minority.

Thanks for clearing this up.

I had no idea black people were a different species.
