Why do whites hate, demonize, fear and look down on blacks?

Why do many White Americans hate, demonize, fear and look down on blacks? I am no scientist or scholar, but here is I how I currently think about it. This post is very much a work in progress.

There are plenty of things that keep white racist thinking in place:

  • Racist messages in jokes, history books, the news and on television, etc,
  • Material self-interest,
  • Fear of becoming an outcast among whites

and so on. But this is not the heart of the matter.

Not even material self-interest. After all, plenty of poor whites are racist. About all they have to show for it is this: “At least I’m not black.” And that gives it away: it is about white self-image.

My current understanding of the white self-image:

  1. Narcissism – having no true sense of self-worth they put up a false front to persuade the world, and most of all themselves, that they do have worth. They mainly do this through money, but also by putting down others to make themselves look better. Deep down they know the whole thing is a lie, which makes them all the more desperate to uphold the front.
  2. Dichotomous thinking – either/or thinking. Their films often have characters who are either all good or all evil. When you ask them about it they say that of course they know the world is not that simple, that it is just a storytelling device. Yet much of their thinking is very either/or, black-or-white. The One Drop Rule is a good example. So is their idea that they are Basically Good, getting upset when you point out anything that does not fit that overblown self-image. Like that maybe they are racist. Worst of all, it means they cannot accept people who are too different: if you are not the same as us then there must be something wrong with you. Either/or.
  3. Moral blindness – this is huge. Every single black person in the eyes of white people is the sign of a terrible crime from their ugly past, a reminder that their life is a fraud, that they are pretty much nothing more than armed robbers. But #1 and #2 make it hard for them to simply own up to their past and make it right. Instead they deny, shift blame, lie, twist facts and make black people into these creatures that they look down on, laugh at and yet, oddly, fear. It is a failed attempt to be at peace with themselves. This is why whites need to give reparations more than blacks need to receive it.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with black people other than the bad patch of history they are going through, its side effects and the ordinary human failings. It is white people who have a deep crack in their souls.

I know that sounds extreme – partly because we have “white is right” pounded into our heads night and day – but their history shows that there is something seriously wrong with them.

  9. This post does really need work.

    Anyway. Why do whites hate, disrespect and discriminate against blacks? It’s tied to the white superiority complex. The white man’s burden, if you must. Whites–going back to racialized science and history of the 18th and 19th century–taught that whites are the superior race and non-whites are savages. White people grew up learning about the advancements and histories of whites, while being taught that they’re superior since they invented all of what is called “civilization.”

    They believed it was their burden to civilize savages. Christianity didn’t help. It was used to justify slavery and anti-miscegenation, and enforce white superiority.

    When you grow up having power over others, it’s easy to disrespect those people and look down on them. After hundreds of years of disrespect, it’s hard to change.

These people hate us like WE kidnapped them from Europe, ripped them away from their cultures, split apart their families, enslaved them, murdered them, raped the women, mutilated the men and enacted Jim Crow laws against them. It’s downright creepy. There’s also a pathological obsession with Black people that is hard to explain. I belong to a website for people of color to express dissent over the European power structure and when Europeans or European Americans drop by the first thing they rant is “Ni66er” this and that. It’s like the default racism is Black oriented. They never think about the others that they’ve crapped on the world over. It’s automatically Black people. I find this fixation extremely frightening. I think it is at a molecular level. Black people are the biggest biological threat to Europeans. They are a global minority that could be easily wiped out at the drop of a sperm or ovum…and no other sperm or ovum presents its physical phenotype as strongly as the Black human. I suspect that this is also why they feel the need to segregate themselves from others, no matter where on the globe they choose to migrate to and forcibly displace the original inhabitants. I truly believe that Europeans will never join the global community because it would ultimately mean their demise. Racism is in their genes. It acts as fail safe for racial preservation. I don’t know. I’m just thinking aloud right now.

    The racial discord in America is propelled by the “fears and frailties” of white Americans because “the White American is a problem to himself and that because he is a problem to himself he has made others problems to themselves. When we say that the white American is a problem to himself we mean that racism is a reflection of personal and collective anxieties lodged deep in the hearts and minds of white Americans.”

    And that’s just the first page. Really great, hard-hitting stuff by Ebony on this topic.

    Well, I think a lot of people are racist due to conditioning, upbringing and media influence. There are probabaly other factors that I haven’t added.

    Jealousy and envy as people already mentionedis another reason why.

    A lot of people who have negative stereotypes about black people hardly know any black people and even if they do, have been given a negative view of black people through the media, newspapers, magazines etc. All the way down to ideals of beauty and what beauty or lack of it, should look like.

  23. Good post, very uncomfortable reading.

    It’s partly victim-blaming: the people on top want to believe we live in a fair world, therefore as the world clearly isn’t fair to POC there must be something wrong with them that caused it. But there’s more to it than that, because people who should understand all about victim blaming, like many white feminists, still manage to hold on to their racim.

    I think Mel‘s explanation is part of it too, but it doesn’t explain why it’s so hard for white people to rid themselves of their racism, why white people cling both conciously and subconciously onto their racist worldview.

    As for your points Abagond (thinking about whether they apply to my mindset, not disputing the general argument):
    1. Narcissism A year ago I’d have said it was ridiculous that any of my self-worth came from being white: after all I almost never thought about my whiteness. But the shame I feel at reading about more and more white atrocities against POC, and the confusion I feel about becoming ashamed of my race, suggests that whiteness was a more important part of my identity than I knew. Or maybe feeling ashamed is natural, but doesn’t necessarily mean I was proud of being white before… I’m not sure yet.

    2. Dichotomous thinking Yes. I can’t square “I am a racist” with “I am a good person” and I haven’t been willing to abandon the second one. I’ve currently fudged a compromise of “I am a racist, but it’s not my fault because I didn’t decide to be one, and I’m still a good person because now I know about it I’m trying to stop it.” It’s ridiculous, but hard to break out of this dichotomous thinking thing!

    3. Moral blindness I don’t understand what this paragraph is trying to say. Is it basically the same point as paragraph one? I understand the statement about reparations which you explained to me a while ago.Could you explain what you mean when you say moral blindness? I can’t find a good definition of this phrase.

    sepultura, I’m sorry about how your co-workers treat you, it must be so hard to have to deal with that every single day.

No time now, but, if you know who did what to whom, even if you are pretty sure that your ancestors (barring the ancestors by rape) could not have been involved with slavery in any way for geo-historical reasons, but you know that you look like people whose ancestors did do those things, you have reason to fear the revenge of the black people.
    And as you, seeing yourself as innocent, fear that other people will see you as guilty based on your looks, you are very close to seeing them as equally guilty.

    There is a far more simple answer to your question.

    If you were to unload your question just a wee bit and instead asked your “average white person (AWP)” to rate their lifetime experience with blacks as either “bad, fair or good,” the majority would fall below the “fair” level.

    Now, you can chalk that up to “racism,” but who REALLY cares anymore?

    The fear part is true. The rest isn’t. It’s because they’ve lived in a neighborhood where that nice Black couple moved in down the block. Then the second family moved in, and they weren’t so bad. Then the third and fourth moved in, and they didn’t mow their lawn, they parked in other people’s driveways, played loud music all night, invited sons and nephews and baby daddies to “stay” for a while since he had nowhere else to go after being let out of jail. Then the kids couldn’t play on the block anymore without being assaulted. Neighbor’s houses started getting broken into and car windows get smashed. The corner deli got robbed and the owner got shot. For Sale signs started going up and prices started to drop and Section 8 landlords swooped in bought up properties for cheap flooding the neighborhood with hoodrats. Next thing you know you’re underwater on your mortgage and a prisoner in your own home.

    The reverse is also true. They’ve bought a house in a really cheap neighborhood and get the stank-eye from your neighbors. They glare at you from the front stoop when you get home from work, throw trash on the ground in front of you when your sweeping up out front, and scream “AH KNOW YOU AIN’ MOVIN’ IN HEE-AH!”. Then you try to show up the community meeting where they talk over you, interrupt you, and say pass the sign-up lists away from you. Efforts to clean up that garbage-strewn vacant lot are met with “I’d rather have a drug-dealer selling out of there than a white person planting a community garden.” Your attempt to open a coffee shop is met with hysterical opposition and legal roadblocks thrown up by the poverty pimp councilwoman. That old lady in a red wig and robe gets all neck-rolling on you becayse the drug dealer you called the cops on was her boy Ray Ray who “wuz gettin his lahf tugevah”. Flyers are passed around of coffee shops and condos and cafes with outdoor seating with wording about how “HERE THEY COME” and what “the community” has to to do stop it. Then some would-be robbery victim shoots back and “the community” takes to the streets in protest of a white man defending himself.

    The first part happened in Grays Ferry. The second part is happening now in Point Breeze and around Temple.

    I’ve read the wholesale mistreatment of blacks by whites is a sort of psychological defense mechanism. For whites to treat blacks as anything less than an abomination would be to concede their humanity and thus their inherent equality. And so to accept that fact in the face of the centuries of irrational hatred and unspeakable violence perpetrated by whites against people of color would be to confront their own obscenity to the degree that would shatter their collective psychic identity. In effect, their souls couldn’t bear it. Hence, the charade endures.

    But there’s something wrong with white people.

    They follow a religion, though hardly anyone calls it that, called WHITENESS which encompasses the white racial frame which is basically how whites see themselves (good, normal, nice, etc) how they see the world (their oyster to do with as they please) and how they see black people (folks to look down on, blame and fear).

    And yes, as a collective they do have a crack in their souls which is why I continue to state:

    WHITENESS IS DEMONIC!

    It alters/harms/ruins the psyche of the card carrying members of the white club/religion. WHITENESS causes them to sever their spiritual/psychic bond/connection to other HUMANS that are people of color.

    Slavery homework assignment

    Several Gwinnett parents contacted Channel 2 Action News in outrage after their children brought home a math assignment that referenced slavery and beatings.

    Christopher Braxton talked with Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh and said he couldn’t believe it when he read his 8-year-old son’s math homework Wednesday.

    “It kind of blew me away,” Braxton said. “Do you see what I see? Do you really see what I see? He’s not answering this question.”

    The question was a word problem that said, “Each tree had 56 oranges. If eight slaves pick them equally, then how much would each slave pick?”

    Another math problem said, “If Frederick got two beatings per day, how many beatings did he get in 1 one week?”

    “I was furious at that point in time,” Braxton said.

Where these guys in the military had to do various tests and experiments on goats, and far as everybody knew, none of them had any specific phobias or dislikes of goats before they started doing it.

    But it wasn’t long into the tests that apparently the various people involved in it started having negative opinions about goats, they are dirty etc….and so on.

    I dont think so, not about that centuries way before. For most of history slavery was accepted, and it has known many different forms, Hating slaves as a group did not make sense at all, it is as stupid as hating sheep. Dehumanizing them, making the free people, no matter how poor, feel in the same class as the slave owners, to prevent a revolution of the combined slaves and paupers against the powerfull slave owning class, makes perfect sense. I am afraid that this system of keeping the low low by playing the different low classes, is still very much alive.

Here is the document that proves it.

    That said; one of the most racist people I know gets along with black people and interacts with them fairly well, he just rarely slips up around them about it.

    And ultimately because they actually believe these things, they’ve been told this misinformation their entire lives by their parents, tv, etc….and they’ve simply never questioned it.

    Much like most peole don’t question their religion or historical and scientific teachings at school, they just process it, go on with their lives and rarely honestly think about it to the point its almost instinct.

    Then of course factor in tribalism, nationalism etc…..many times minorities retain differences in their culture as compared to the main stream.

    Why should a black woman, white woman or any woman find it a compliment that a brutish male wants to rape them? That just means that the creature, regardless of colour, cannot control himself. It’s a matter of self-control.

    Most whites fear, demonize and hate blacks for one simple reason:
    It’s all they have.

    Self esteem, or lack thereof, is the reason why people hate. Whites were oppressed in their own land, hated their own lives, hated their women and ultimately, themselves.

    Slavery was a great way to feel better about their dullness, lack of culture, lack of thanksgiving, lack of life…
    You will never find an answer to this, my friend.
    It exists because it can. And, sadly, it will never end.

    Menelik charles is correct. Envy is a HUGE part of this hatred. Whites lack culture, so they adapt to the culture of others. They lack style, so they want our style, our dress. They lack dance, music, aging gracefully, food, soul, our bodies…so they want ours. They are reeling from this ” disconnect ” because they have nothing that makes their lives meaningful.

    Oh…wait…they have money.

    Basically its way cheaper; I remember a statement that supposedly even if we just gave comparable reperations to black people as we have the indians the price would still go up into the trillions of dollars due to the difference in size between the two groups.

    Not that it couldn’t be done; it just wouldn’t be cheap.

    When people such as Lara etc….make the comment or some variation of, that black women are hard to get along with I always find that strange.

    I’ve always got along with them well enough; be polite to them and they are polite back to you the vast majority of the time, thats regardless of whether they like you or not.

You’ve shown that you have a trace of narcissism and moral blindness with every comment you make. No one with an open mind takes you seriously. The only reason why you continue to show up is because you have yet to say something that would get you banned here. (I hope you will)

    Anyway, whiteness trumps humanity from what I’ve seen. Whites and POC who are sick with whiteness will display the usual symptoms all for the objective of putting down other POC, including their own, and putting whites on some pedestal. It’s never about doing the right thing, but doing what’s right for white people.

    And all of that is (99% chance) very well going to be true. Nonetheless, we (meaning anyone that is anyone) need to INSTRUCT others how we are to be treated.

    This is not to say that that instruction has been missing. I reassert this: I am not shifting the blame on people of colour. What i am trying to say is that in a perfect world we would never need to say it in a way that white people understand. However, unfortunately the world we live in is one wherein we have to accommodate the IDIOT-syncracies of the educate the uneducated and suffer the insufferable.

    This refers wholly to white people bc the alternative is being in a state of constant conflict bc of their inability to appreciate the beauty/genius/languages etc that is black people. So others have to teach them.

    Once a lesson plan has been written by someone on this board (i.e. any of the posters or owner of the site) or someone else thereafter, it is up to the rest of social justice minded individuals to have the fight on our backs for that effort. Executing the plan and addressing the misinformed and bigoted (i.e. any of those that come on this board or the hundreds of millions of whites across the world).

    This is why i restate: It is the responsibility of a leader amongst the black community to write a declaration to the of racism. And then it is up to anyone who hopes for a better future to execute this dream.

    Most of these poor whites will side with rich, powerful whites based on the association of white skin. They see them as people who have their best interest at heart even though they will get shafted in the end like black and brown folks. Still, they will point to the problems of society on black and brown people and never at the rich and powerful white men.

    Also, whites have been taught in one way or another about what’s good and what’s bad when it comes to race. Whites who mean well believe that racism involves name calling, hate groups, and crimes against blacks. They were also taught that it existed heavily in the past and that it rarely happens today. Those who still commit to those acts are ousted by other whites. They don’t want to be associated with them which is funny considering how all blacks must take responsibility for a crime against a white person by one or a few blacks.

    Now, at the same time they are taught about their many accomplishments, inventions, and heroes, and are shown how they are superior in subtle ways all the time. They see their faces as positive images everywhere. They are told that they are “normal” people, that they are basically good, and that only they have what it takes to make it in society.

    However, what many of these white folks don’t know is that racism is also systematic or institutional, that history plays an important part on how society operates today, that they have many privileges based on their skin, and that they live in a society of white supremacy and they live in a bubble of sorts.

    Some of them don’t know it. Some of them know it, but don’t care. Some of them believe they are victims of racism against them. And some of them don’t want to know it. They are so lost that you can’t make heads or tails of this and they prefer it that way.

    And once again, it seems that people here do not understand the System. One of the oldest song sang for the poor white in USA has been the one which says that they are, if nothing else, white, just like the rich, and therefore a bit like them and above every other ethnic group. And the poor whites are happy puppies yappin the same tune because they do not understand, that they are poor and in deep Sht because the rich white folks want them to be in that situation. Then they make the poor white fight against everyother poor and laugh at the stands watching this insanity.

    I think it was one of the most powerful and corrupt poltical bosses of New York who once famously said: You can always hire the other half of the poor to kill the other half. They still do that, only more subtle ways.

    When the wealth in USA is distributed in a similar way as in any other underdeveloped country, richest 10% having some 80% of all the wealth (if not even more), the 90% fighting for the 20% of wealth, the System works by institutionalized racism as one of the tools to keep the 90% out. This is something which I think some commenters do not get, no matter how or how many times it will be told, shown, proven or demonstrated to them.

    Being a white person struggling economically in USA is because OTHER WHITES TOOK YOUR MONEY. Instead of going berserk about blacks, latinos, asians or what ever, you should be going berserk about the real problem. Why there is social injustice, why there is so much poverty, why there is no universal healthcare, why there are millions in USA who can not read, why there are hunderds of thousands who are hungry?

    The problem we are facing in today’s politically correct society is that you have to have the same opinion as everyone else. Some people DO like to divide and conquer, a bit like these managers at work saying that lower grade staff members should watch other staff members of the same grade and report back, this is one of many divide and conquer tactics used, this does not even necessarily depend solely on colour, but divide and rule is one of many tactics used to pkay one group of people off against the other, in this instance Diane Abbott happens to be talking about some white people who do this…..I am sure this is happening in parlaiment and that is probably why she said it.

    Also, she is the first black female MP, what better way to get her kicked out. When MPs stole money from parliament coffers, a lot of them stood their ground and went nowhere and have kept their jobs to this day.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts. An explanation for this may be that systematic racism was an excellent way to keep poor, uneducated whites from learning that rich whites do not care about them.

    By using blacks, browns, yellows and reds as the punching bag, rich, powerful whites brainwashed the poor.

    What a mastermind, no?
    Poor, undereducated and racist whites will vote AGAINST their own best interest, as Brothawolf stated. It is done because ” at least I’m not black.”
    White solidarity prevails. Even though, they are being used.

    I read a diary of a former KKK member who realized that he was being used by the very system that he swore to protect. This is where shame, anger and self loathing begins. This is also where most whites develop that ” fakeness” to live with the guilt.

    This is a sign of low self esteem when you can’t live and let live and mind your own business about matters that do not concern you directly. It is also the sign of a control freak/tyrant/dictator, telling other people how to be and how to act because you are unhappy or dissatisfied with self.

    If you were happy within yourself and your inner light was radiating and shining through, then you wouldn’t even be that concerned about why people feel good about themselves…..Jealousy and envy comes to mind.

    See, warriors go to wars. That is why they are called warriors. They war. Usually they are called soldiers, mercenaries etc. Sometimes they are known as terrorists or guerillas etc. But warriors do not sit at home front of their computers typing funny text or babble about race.

    Warriors do not talk. They do very nasty and bad things. They maim, murder, kill, destroy, torture, beat, rape other humanbeings. War is like that. It is very, very dirty, nasty and dangerous.

  175. I have not had many opportunities to experience the demonisation by Euro-Americans that so many of you speak of, but the ones that I experienced, actually bring me to different conclusions than that Abagond has arrived at. I will explain how I arrived at a different conclusion by first using an incident of racism that I had experienced while I was in Florida a year and a half ago to do an important medical procedure. In another comment, I will then show that the demonisation of Blacks has come about as result of Western civilization adopting a Metaphysics and Epistemology of Anal and Oral Sex.

    During the medical examination that is required prior to surgery, I was examined by a young white male doctor (I believe of Irish-Catholic/Italian extraction) who appeared to be doing his internship. The gentleman, having examined me shirtless, and having read the form I had previously filled out, cracked a smug smirk, and asked in a most smug tone of voice “How’d you get those?”, referring to the scars from the gunshot, stab and surgical wounds on my upper body. I proceeded to answer that they were a result of robbery attempts. The gentleman then asked where I lived. I replied that I lived in the nation’s capital, to which he then responded “Isn’t that the bad place?” I then calmly explained that Kingston is home to almost half the population, thus making his statement a gross over-generalisation. He then smiled meekly and then proceeded to continue the examination , rather meekly.

    The above anecdote gives us main points that will prove invaluable to understanding why whites engage in “demonisation.”

    (1) Black men do not get shot, they get themselves shot
    (2) Bad things do not happen to good people
    (3) In lieu of exposure to Black people, bad things happen to black people because they are bad.
    (4) Televised images are an excellent reflection of reality

    These points can be attributed to:

    Cultural Narcissism (1)

    Narcissism , in this sense does not mean egoism or selfishness. Instead think back to Narcissus entranced by his reflection. He could not tell his true self from his false. And that is what modern culture leads to. An ongoing economic crisis, combined with the constant threat of terrorism in a world teetering on the brink of environmental collapse encourages survival – not living. Survival means you withdraw into a “minimal self”, there is no room for empathy, understanding or commitment. The focus on reality TV and hook up sex over relationships I believe are a symptom of this in the Euro-American community. They realise that a good portion of their selves is missing, causing them to use

    Narcissistic Defenses

    Splitting becomes necessary reducing the world to good/evil. Projection means that you place your own insecurities onto a scapegoat (Black rape stats). And withdrawal means that you only interact with those of your own kind, thus withdrawing into enclaves (White Flight). None of these defenses, however, are able to withstand Narcissistic Injury, which tends t come about during times like these.

    I will hae to elaborate at another time why these are not exclusive to Euro-Americans, as well as how we have become dominated and subjugated by a Philosophy of Buttsecks.

  176. The Use of Stereotypes

    White people feel that they are under siege, not merely due to external factors, but due to those within their own race that seek to create docile consumers by dividing them into different demographics so that they may be better exploited (this is also obviously the case for Blacks and other races). This used to be a distinct and real course of study up to the 1920s, (2) but is no longer made overtly known to marketing students. Nowadays, the stigmatisation of Blacks occurs as a result of confirmation bias (3)

    If you were a white person would be inclined to watch a video called “Shit White girls say to Black Girls ?” You would not even bother inputting that into your Google search, instead looking at the latest Kardashian, or whatever would reinforce your beliefs.

    It takes disasters, economic crises, total wars and other upheavals to create the type of existential crises to force people out of their long held beliefs. Perhaps, that may be the one good thing to come out of the recent economic troubles.

For it is the condition of his rule that he shall spend his life in trying to impress the “natives,” and so in every crisis he has got to do what the “natives” expect of him. He wears a mask, and his face grows to fit it. I had got to shoot the elephant. I had committed myself to doing it when I sent for the rifle. A sahib has got to act like a sahib; he has got to appear resolute, to know his own mind and do definite things. To come all that way, rifle in hand, with two thousand people marching at my heels, and then to trail feebly away, having done nothing – no, that was impossible. The crowd would laugh at me.

    At the risk of complete oversimplification, I’ll just offer one primary reason why people in my majority-white hometown feared black folks: crime.

    There was a far greater likelihood of becoming the victim of theft or assault if you went into a black neighborhood vs. a white one. My observation was that “white flight” had nothing to do with an anti-preference for melanin, but rather was a desire to escape crime and related social pathologies.

    Also, one could see that neighborhoods which had previously received greater numbers of black residents had increasing levels of litter, unresolved home maintenance issues, and other indicators of community disorder.

    I recall driving in the car with my father who would point out things like, “I remember when this neighborhood used to be all northern Italians. We were dirt poor but everyone kept their place tidy. Just look at how these houses are falling apart now.”

    I suppose that you could say these feelings therefore originated from personal experience and observation, and not due to any grand plan to create group antipathy towards black people.

    My observation, having lived in places subjected to white flight, is that it is a self-serving racist lie that white people like to tell themselves. It does not, for example, account for why extremely few whites move to black middle-class neighbourhoods where crime is low. Or even why, in Manhattan, they live in neighbourhoods with markedly higher crime rates than the middle of Harlem.

    In the early 1980s Chinatown was the murder capital of Manhattan. Yet I know people who had no trouble going there who would shake like a leaf if they had to go to Harlem. Their fear was grounded in racism, not fact.

    The immediate question was about how white folks came to feel a certain way about black folks.

    I’d offer that proletarian people (aka “regular folks”) of all nationalities tend deal with the situations at hand without much concern for the grand sweeps of history which may have engendered them. That tends to be a luxury of the introspective bourgeoisie. The poor are busy scratching out a living.

    In the case I described, people simply wanted safe neighborhoods for their children. Nobody cared “why”.

    Even if you knew “why”, that would make little difference, as you’re not going to solve any grand societal issues being the peon that you are. You simply move from places where people are more likely to assault each other to places where they aren’t.

    I guess this is supposed to be an example of how the poor don’t help themselves, or perhaps how they’re just too dumb or lazy to help themselves? I’m thinking that if I had a “huge” hole in my floor, simply nailing a board over it would not make it safe to walk on. I would try to cover it but I would still walk around it (especially if I was unable to repair it properly). Also, do we know if the hole was in an upstairs room?

  194. I ended up on this website due to a link from a website I was on to another article here.

    What I see in the article and most of the comments here is exactly the same thing that whites are being accused of doing. On the one hand people want to be treated as individuals, and on the other they want to be treated as a group. On the one hand they want to be accepted for who they are, and on the other they want an apology or more for what someone elses ancestors did to their ancestors. All that ends up happening is a circular motion of distrust and hate that keeps the problem from ever being solved. This can be seen all over the planet, between and inside every possible grouping of humans, from race to religion to economic category. Most of history is represented by one group taking from another simply because they could. Peaceful tolerant places historically never lasted long due to this – they were wiped out/taken over.

    My personal view on this topic is that the title is trivially silly. I don’t know any white people personally who demonize, fear, or who look down on blacks, but I know they exist. I did know people of the older generations who did but for the most part this was based on complete ignorance – they lived in an area where there were simply not many people at all much less a minority. Blacks were simply the “Other”. My grandfather who made racist statements infrequently also loved to watch Mohammed Ali box. A cousin of my parents who married a black man was treated hostilely by my grandparents generation (some of them) but NOT by their children. With rise of modern media, typical responses have been either becoming much more tolerant, or much more intolerant. I see the world for the most part getting better, but where it is not, becoming much more easy to identify and point out.

    For me, I grew up without a single minority family in the area except for Native Americans who tended to be isolated on the reservations. I never knew any blacks until coming to LA for college, nor did I know much from television etc. except for the civil rights movement which I saw as completely justified given what I saw on TV. I really didn’t and don’t to this day know much about the cultures of say the deep south or the upper mid-west as I’ve never lived in those places.

    My experiences on moving to LA varied. I’ve never experienced crime from blacks, although I have from white teenagers. The blacks in my college were quite varied in politics and outlook. I do remember being shocked when I was training as a waiter for a part time job (all the jobs were held by students) under a black captain being called an “nword’s nword” by some of the other black and white students working there. Most of what I (think I) know of blacks unfortunately comes from what I will call advertising – music, news, other media – not from personal experience. I doubt that the advertising is accurate, but the hip-hop music and its culture of violence disturb me. I do love Jazz, Swing, and early R&B.

    Comments such as I see here reinforce in me a tendency when In the presence of a black person I don’t know to not say anything rather than say something out of ignorance they personally may decide is racist. Some here have apparently decided that not saying anything is also racist. Telling someone they are racist for such things is not helpful, either to them or you if the desire is to actually to become acquainted. If your desire is to simply reinforce an attitude in the minds of these people you are probably on the right track. I also read that in surveys that blacks are perhaps the least likely group to support gay rights, which intensely puzzles me.

    Bottom line, I try very hard to treat people as individuals, and if you come from someplace unfamiliar, even within the United States, I’m likely to ask many questions about what it’s like etc.would I like to visit or live there. If I make a mistake jumping on it as racist is almost a guarantee that future interaction will be held to a minimum if only to ensure that such a mistake does not get repeated. Much more productive would be “why do you think that?” Being a racist, and obviously there are a few black racists posting here, is not a solution to being treated badly – and I doubt that anyone here, black or white, has any “power” myself included.

    From most of these comments from Randy, Lara, and anyone else making similar statements about white flight, I find it tiresome but nonetheless insulting that one would think that black neighborhoods because of the association with black communities and destruction.

    In the first place crime can happen anywhere at anytime by anyone. Black communities are not the number one places for crime to happen. Crime can occur in white communities, middle class and upper class communities. The problem is that cops are always in poor black communities for the stereotype that those places are cesspools for crime. Politicians and the news always – ALWAYS – make it seem like anyplace where black people are will be destroyed. But people like Lara doesn’t have the moral capacity to comprehend how that can be depressing because you know, black people are screwed up by nature because a racist white person told me so.

    Why not try asking how and why crime happens instead of just assuming it has to do with culture or skin color? Why not do some genuine research instead of jumping headfirst into some myths and stereotypes like a crackhead jumping into an empty swimming pool? Why not take into account that your kind of mentality is harmful to others and yourselves instead of holding on to them as if you were Linus refusing to let go of your security blanket?

    Thus, a system was devised and perpetuated by WHITES in interest of WHITES, to the expense and oppression of PEOPLE OF COLOUR, a system very much still in the works.

    If you took a single course in sociology/anthropology/history you would know that Blacks cannot be racist. They can be bigoted, prejudiced, hateful etc. but they cannot be racist. Because they are not able to nor have they ever been able to withhold rights from whites in a SYSTEMIC fashion as whites have been and continue to do today.

    This is all coming from a white individual.

  213. Rubbish. Race was hardly devised by white people, nor has the oppression of others on such a classification been limited to whites. Example, Japan over Korea and China. The definition of “racism” you use is meaningless in any context except as history. Simply being unable to exercise that power rather than unable AND unwilling does not make one not a racist – it makes one a racist without success to date. And yes, I have had plenty of college courses on such topics, but apparently not taught with the “color” you accept as truth.

    Without whites willing to buck such systems in America blacks would still be in slavery and Obama would never have become President.

    I can’t help but LOL at THAT, because – as we all know, if an utterance comes from a white person, as opposed to a black person, the testimony is then seen as legitimate, “objective,” even-handed and carries much more clout and weight!

    Black people, by and large, are NOT credible to “white” people which is part and parcel of what Abagond is persistently, doggedly always saying – in hundreds of various ways!!!!!

    Nationality does not equal race.

    Thus, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese would not be considered different races but of the same race. To be precise, the Malayan race. According to Blumenbach.

    Let’s turn towards a neutral source. Wikipedia:

    “The European concept of “race” arose in the 17th century at the time of the scientific revolution and the age of European imperialism and colonization.[26][27] As Europeans encountered people from different parts of the world, they speculated about the physical, social, and cultural differences among various human groups. During the Atlantic slave trade, human groups were categorized in order to justify the subordination of African slaves.[28]”

    “In the United States, Thomas Jefferson saw Africans as inferior to Whites in intellect, and embued with unnatural sexual appetites, but sawNative Americans as equals to whites.[37]”

  216. Where are these “people” coming from???

    If there’s anything to be understood about racism is that it deals mostly with myths and lies and never truths. The truth is the enemy to the faith that white people are superior based solely on white skin and numerous myths about them.

    Since this topic talks about, as the title suggests, why whites hate, fear, demonize, or look down on blacks, it talks about the experiences coming from blacks. It’s based on loads of research on the subject. And the proof constantly appears from different people who troll in here proving the topic’s three main points: narcissism, dichotomous thinking, and moral blindness.

    The trolls that have been appearing in here rant in some way or another about how whites did great things and without them black people would be lost, or left to rot in Africa. They believe that blacks by nature are dumb, lazy, dysfunctional, violent, and oversexed. And, they don’t care to hear our pain, frustrations, or point of view (unless it agrees with them).

    It’s futile to talk with them from a different point of view. They are too screwed up to give another person’s POV a chance, yet, they log into blogs like this for what? To disturb forums. To grab attention, and to spew their predictable bullshit.

    And that is the truth. They can’t stand the truth. They devalue truth. They could care less about how “we” feel. They don’t care if we are suffering. In fact some of them want us to feel low, to be ashamed of who we are. At the same time they want us to worry about them. They want us to worship them. They want us to shut up and be happy while we love and respect them UNCONDITIONALLY.

    These trolls here are mentally challenged, psychologically broken, spiritually absent, morally deprived, overprivileged, warped human beings with self-esteem issues and too much idle time on their hands.

    I realize that that is the truth of the matter (about the way in which the legal system/media/society put weight behind what white people say and discredit what people of color say). It was a poor choice of words.

    If i were to reword it, i would say that I don’t believe this conversation is being had along lines of color/non-color but rather along the lines of empathy, acceptance, truth, and justice. Those that are empathetic, accepting and honest realize how loudly the bells of truth toll whenever people of color speak about their histories and experiences, discrimination and perseverance.

    Those that are not empathetic, honest, and accepting stop reading after the first words about systemic oppression are written. Or they read but they take in zilch of what is SAID. They go on to verbal diarrhea what they were told from their trailer trash family about these matters.

    I believe that I respect and listen. Therefore I believe that I belong in the former group. I apologize for the ignorance from that post.

  218. Unfortunately, JT, the Japanese have historically considered THEMSELVES to be of a different and better race than the Chinese or Koreans, a prejudice which still exists today. It doesn’t really matter that YOU consider them to be of the same race, the excuse for their behavior was exactly the same.

    Here in this group I see people like the host who consider, based on their race, that they are “better” than other groups. I see still others who would obviously like nothing better than to engage in such behavior given the ability and opportunity. I notice you not very cleverly ignored where the very same Wikipedia article goes on to explore the concept among other races, as an example “However, the concept of human races is generally accepted in some other regions of the world, such as Asia and Eastern Europe”. The fact is that “race” is not a only a white concept, but is embedded in such things as the Hispanic “La Raza” name. The article you quote also says “Groups of humans have probably always distinguished themselves from other groups.”

    It would be stupid to say that some white people historically haven’t used such a classification to derive advantage from other peoples It would be equally stupid to say that no other race has done this, or that a larger number of whites haven’t fought just such an advantage in modern times.

    The idea of collective racial guilt is an example of someone trying to achieve an advantage over others based on the classification of race. It is racist, to the core. I feel no “guilt” over the past personally, but I do think that current Americans can and should do better than our collective ancestors did. My ancestors were for the most part not even in the country during slavery and those that did live here were Hessian soldiers. Should I feel “guilt” that they fought for the British against the rebel Americans?

    Nobody here alive today experienced the vast bulk of what is being complained about, nor have the vast majority of whites benefited from the advantages of slavery. Yet many here want to claim victim-hood status, and you are apparently willing to accept oppressor status based on very specious logic. Now if your only interest is in speaking in secret code rather than solving whatever problem might exist, you are on the right track. Frankly, I have little interest in that and would rather look at where our common interests lie – that a small number of people are controlling more and more of the wealth of this nation. Race is irrelevant unless you want to cause division amongst those who are in the same economic straights.

  224. Like I’ve said in other threads, the white americans do not want to admit that their whole counrty is based on racism. At first, racism against the REAL americans, the natives, which is still going on today. Yes, I have witnessed this by myself in various forms. Againts the blacks, yes, I have see this too. Against the asians, “chinks, dinks, slant eyes, dingdongs etc.” Against others “towelheads, ragheads etc.”

    It is in the very core of the System, so much so, that white americans can not see it nor they want to admit it. Get real with the real history of your country. Find out the facts. You can see it yourselves! The whole System is made to benefit the very few and racism is one of the bed rocks of the System.

    When italians came to USA in droves back in late 19th century early 20th, they were stuffed in horrible ghettoes and called as garlic eating greasers, dirty subhumans worthy only for manual labour. When the irish came, they were looked as monkey, just check any cartoon of that time. The only way these immigrants could begin their social climb was to join in the System, to accept its very core values, that there is always some other group beneath you. These happened to be the blacks and the natives.

    The whole System is based on this: in order to better your own social status, you must join in and accept their values, and the racist world view. In order to get better life, you must step on somebody else. If you want to have a chance in this System, you must act the way that those above you will give you a pass. They will show you how to get on, but they will not let you rise too high. Only way to get in, to join the Club, is money.

    Once you make a millions, you are accepted. At that level race is no more an issue. You can join the country clubs and golf clubs and such and laugh and enjoy with your white counter parts. And that, my friends, shows you what it is all about: Money.

    Racism is one very important tool in the System. It is conquer and divide, keep those mexicans, salvadorans, dominicans, jamaicans, haitians, blacks, chinese, koreans and others fighting between themselves. Keep them hating each other, competening with each other, and they won’t even notice how you reap the harvest right in front of them. Dangle the carrot in front of them: look, P Diddy made it, so can you! Yes, once you have made your millions. Then you are in, at least as long as you have those millions.

You feel free to protest “ching chong hats” though if you feel it helps your cause – which by this point I can’t even tell if you know.

    Just what “ball club” do you think I’m a member of? Again, you want to be treated based on your own criteria but your behavior as an individual is so bad why would anyone want to associate with you? Another strawman gets set up to be knocked down in her “pixy dust and pony kisses” silliness, again, not something I or anyone else have claimed. America has racial baggage period – and people like you are doing nothing whatsoever to eliminate that and forced to conclude that without it, you wouldn’t know who you are. I came from nowhere with nothing and nobody gave me anything. I got a good education in a field that pays well and am not a boss or manager of anyone, black, red, white, or purple. Where you get off making all kinds of claims about me while whining that someone else does that to you is hypocritical in the extreme.

    Now, I can tell you that I saw the problem of the elites from way back during the Reagan years, which means I’ve been seeing it a whole hell of a lot longer than you have, but you go right ahead and feel special in your victim-hood and demand that all whites are out to oppress you, all the while busy alienating any possible allies – such as GAYS – because you can’t possibly look beyond your own nose. Funny how you feel free to speak FOR all these other minorities when most of them haven’t any more interest in your juvenile politics and self-interest posing as morality than I do. Without allies and the ability to form consensus your self-interested whining will never be anything more.

    The last strawman, that I don’t get to say that race is irrelevant gets set up by you Gen. I never claimed I did, so there goes that self-righteousness along with the rest of your unenlightened self-interest. What I would like to know is if a solution is even possible, and listening to people like you, I would have to say No. Fortunately in reality you don’t speak for anyone but yourself, and even that is so much noise added to an already noisy background.

    Did they consider themselves a better people, a better culture, a better race, a better tradition or a better something else? The transition/translation of a concept between languages is often very hard. You claim that they thought of themselves as an English word, and I am pretty sure they did not do that.No contradiction, just another evidence that in the USA intelligence, unlike education, often seems to correlate with pigmentation.

    “The fact is that “race” is not a only a white concept, but is embedded in such things as the Hispanic “La Raza” name. ”

    La Raza is Spanish, thus Raza is a Spanish concept, White means European or descendant of Europeans in this context, Spain is a European Nation, and thus is La Raza a white concept.That some products of miscegenation use it to indicate themselves too, does not mean that the concept is not White.Where is your contradiction?

    White children, in the main, and whether they are rich or poor, grow up with a grasp of reality so feeble that they can – very accurately – be described as deluded – about themselves and about the world they live in.

    White people have managed to get through entire lifetimes in this euphoric state, but black people have not been so lucky:

    a black man who sees the world the way John Wayne, for example, sees it would not be an eccentric patriot, but a raving maniac. …

    People who cling to their delusions find it difficult, if not impossible, to learn anything worth learning:

    a people under the necessity of creating themselves must examine everything, and soak up learning the way the roots of a tree soak up water.

    As people still held in bondage must believe that “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make ye free.

  282. Abagond, I don’t care if you listen to my advice or not, frankly, certainly much less than you care whether or not I accept yours. To say I’ve received “excellent answers and comments” is again stretching the definitions of words beyond all relevant use. What I have gotten are claims with no real backing, complaints with no real solutions proposed (other than white people are bad), and illogic and Catch-22’s that approach astronomical proportions. If I don’t get your POV it’s because it was either phrased in such racist language (by many here), made claims about what I personally think, is historically highly dubious, or simply ranting nonsense.

    Here Teddy replied to the question without any context and thinks he’s done his job – and I noticed you deleted my reply probably because of the word “silly”. “Not all of them” is an answer if you know what “them” in the question is being referenced.

    Someone posted a comment about how it wasn’t the job of black people to fight white racism, it was the job of whites. As if the correspondence of my skin color determines whether or not it’s my job. Turned around then it’s the job of the black people not white people to fight black crime and whatever other antisocial behavior blacks might engage in regardless of whether that’s their career, or they know the person, but only because they share certain familial characteristics.

    Another person claims race is an invention of whites, which can be and has been shown to be false. European “scientists” developed what has been called scientific racism, but that was due primarily to the fact that science itself in a methodical sense was a European development following the end of the Islamic golden age. That pseudo-science was opposed by others at the time and has since been repudiated by the mainstream scientific establishment.

    There seem to be many people here who are set in their world view that whites are the source of all evil, that all whites are responsible for what evil has occurred, and that we should simply accept that point of view as truth. I see people reinforcing each others distorted world view to the point where it becomes accepted truth in spite of the historical facts in contradiction. I’ve already said that I feel no guilt for the actions of anyone in the past other than myself, nor do I accept the flawed but apparently accepted notion here that I should without way more than I’ve seen here. By all means hang onto that, it seems so successful – and I’m sure you know the definition of insanity, right?

    9. Black people cannot be racist because they have no power but all whites are because they all have power whether they know it or not.
    10. Attacking a person and calling them racist is the correct approach for every possible infraction, whether intended or not.

    I think you are focusing too much on trying to discredit this scientific study instead of thinking about the basic concept: groups favor and have empathy for their own group but not other groups.. And whiteness is the power structure in the United States. The whole concept of whiteness sets up a double standard that favors white people and disadvantages people of color. If we want to be moral and if we believe in social justice, if we want to uphold the beliefs that we claim that we cherish, than we have to find ways to increase our empathy for people of color and listen to the experiences that are very generously shared here.

    As far as science is concerned, get a clue. It is never scientific to draw a conclusion unsupported by the data in question (or article in this case).

We are not complainers, we are frustrated human beings trapped in a world your people constructed from the blood, sweat, and tears of the red and black man.

    By the way, this assumption that whites won’t understand because of attitudes like mine is a tone argument to avoid the subject. People like me don’t have attitudes for nothing. Like I said, we are frustrated, and your stubborn and condescending attitude not to take us seriously doesn’t help at all.

    We have ideas, but you won’t listen. You will assume this site is racist against whites without the slightest clue why and why it should be considerable. Most of us don’t hate whites, but we’re tired of the systems and mindset associated with whiteness in regards to POC, and we have the human right to express them.

    As far as science goes, the same could be said about scientific racism. They’ve made conclusions based on pseudo-scientific research which have been proven unfounded or false. Yet, they still have a following where people ate it up without question because it supported their racist beliefs. If it sounds good, people will jump on it whether it’s tested or not. Since this was an experiment with some results that were less than favorable to a certain population, it’s no surprise that they would avoid it at all cost and discount it.

If talking about what white girls say to black girls is the key issue of the week, count me out.”

    There you go, behaving like a five year old who is mad when things do not go his way.

    I don’t agree everything said here, nor I do agree with everybody all the time, sometimes I agree with someone for something, sometimes I dissagree in some other subject. What I do not do, at least try to avoid, is getting angry or insulted. Once you start to go down that road, it is a dead end. That is why so many use that kind of arguing today.

    Like the talebans or other religious zelots, you stand up and shout: I am insulted! And that’s it. There are no more arguments. You just have been insulted and feel angry about it. There is no reason, just a feeling of being insulted and thats it.

    You try appear as a reasonable man, but you behave like any Al Qaida spokes person or closed minded zelot. “This is it! You accuse all the whites! I’m havin none of it!”. The end.

    You do not like to discuss about the slavery? Why? It is the basic cause of all the troubles between the blacks and whites in USA. That is a historical fact. To exclude that from any discussion about race or racism is not only stupid, but also dishonest. You can not wipe history away no matter how much it buggs you. One has to look history as it is and realise that we do not live in some La La Land which has no connection to the things way past. We are products of our histories, wheater we like it or not.

    United States of America has a history of racism and racial genocide. That is a fact. Those things echo still today. That is why this blog is alive too. That is why you feel insulted and so angry about these things. But instead of stopping there, instead of just being angry and/or insulted, you should dive head on into the history and look at it as it is. Germans have done that, why can not you? They have no illusions about their history, holocaust and all, why you should have?

    I understand that you get angry when some one here says “Whites this and whites that”. It is a generalisation. It may offend you. But at the same time, the black americans hear the same all the time. Even you say it in your responses: YOU do this and that, YOU say this and that about all the whites. Funny, isn’t it?

    And even when abagond has repeatedly again and again said and pointed out that he does not talk about ALL THE WHITES, you take it that way. Why? That is something what you should think about. Where that comes from? If you are not a racist and you have an open mind and intelligence to engage in a open discussion of the suibjects, why do you feel so offended? What is it that ticks you off? If you KNOW that you are not a racist white biggot, why do you get so angry, insulted, annoyed? I don’t. I am a white man. But, I am not an american white man. Perhaps there is something there.

I’m not mad, I’m laughing at you just as I do at the asylum represented by those people commenting on Fox News stories. The hypocrisy here is almost world class. When I say I’m having none of it that means I’ve run out of time to play with the children discussing topics like “what white girls say to black girls”. It means, ok, I thought this was an adult blog, but it turns out not to be the case, so I’ll leave as the real head cases here keep demanding that I and anyone else do who doesn’t tow their party line. I’m not mad, or going to be mad, maybe disappointed, but I’ll live.

    As far as slavery is concerned, by all means discuss it. It is a dramatic part of US history, and a very sad blemish on the history of the country. But if I’m going to participate in that discussion, it will be because ALL of the details that are available from those times and the context in which it occurred are discussed, not just cut off at an arbitrary line selected for political purposes.

    You mention Germany. If Germany had overthrown the Nazis themselves before they wiped out most of the Jews the moral line would be different. This country went to war in the bloodiest conflict on a per capita basis in which the US has ever been engaged to eliminate the scourge of slavery. Tens of thousands of people were killed or maimed in the US civil war. Also, Germany until recently was a rather monolithic society, with very little immigration. The USA is a polyglot country with a population base that for the most part came here AFTER slavery was ended. The parallels between that case and ours is tenuous.

    I’m not offended, angry, insulted, or any other strongly emotional state of mind. I am a little annoyed at the lack of quality in the supposed facts that get tossed around, and I’m disappointed that the goal is not finding solutions, but in playing the blame game. If the whining from a few to leave is the consensus, I will. Simple as that. Not mad, or offended, but shaking my head once again at how silly people can be and wondering what it is you actually think you’re going to accomplish.

    “And don’t imply that I can’t read. (Is it because I’m black, and therefore illiterate?).”

    So, you have an attitude. It isn’t helping you reach beyond the choir. That really isn’t my problem. That’s a YP, not an MP.

Lately here it has been attempted to be used by those to show “whites are bad, or lacking empathy or (insert your claim here)”. However, in this case, the papers cited for support of that position don’t say anything of the kind. I don’t know what population you are referring to in this case, that show it in an unfavorable light and so try to avoid it and discount it. The papers themselves don’t do so. The claims people were making for these papers don’t sound any different than someone claiming “blacks have been found to have a lower IQ” or “blacks have been found to be naturally violent” – nonsense that also gets repeated by those trying to sound like they have a scientific argument.

    When someone says ” this is the way whites think, it’s wrong, and this is the way whites should think” then you will have a strong discussion for two reasons: one, because the thinking among whites is as varied as the number of people in that group. For two, you have no authority to tell me or anyone else how we should think. THERE IS NO MONOLITH. You are however free to tilt at windmills in this country.

    “This blog, far from being just some kind of whine-o-rama of victim-hood, has plenty that examines and questions the very white way you think. White is not always right just because it paid for the microphone.”

    That’s a strawman, which seems to be a preferred form of argument here – white is not always right. In fact, white doesn’t even agree on what’s right, any more than any other arbitrary grouping of people do.

    It’s also nonsense, since you don’t have a clue about me, my politics, my history, where I’ve lived, and what I’ve been through. Similarly I don’t have a clue about your background. There are two options, common ground or hostility. Given that common ground seems to be out, I’ll leave rather than deal with irrational hostility.

    Nazis considered the jews and the gypsies and slavs and others to be a race apart. They did not see their country homogenious at all. They attempted to make it such according to their ideology, that is by killing all the jews and some others. Some lesser races were destined to be as slaves for their “aryan master race”. I think that kind of thinkin was very much similar as the one which americans had when they slaved blacks and tried to wipe out the native americans. Arguments were very much the same for similar reasons.

    The reasons behind the civil war were more complicated than just about slavery. Perhaps you have been brainwashed to think so by your official version of that part of your history. Some states fighting for the Union were actually supporting slavery and practising it. General Lee was an officer in US army before the conflict and originally wanted no war at all in which he was forced to take part in. The economic, political and many other issues were at stake. Not just slavery.

    And on that note, when slavery was officially ended, what happened? Did the inherit racism in the very system of the nation and its government sees to be? Did USA hug and kiss the native population and accepted them as brothers? How come a black person could not drink from the same public fountain as whites in the South in early 1960’s? Why native americans were killed by federal and state officials as late as in 1970’s when they wanted what the government had promised to them in many, many legal agreements?

    Americans, specially white americans, are very fond of talking about moral values, morals etc. That is why the country is very much a hypocracy, moralistic nation, which talks about the right things and does something else. You are part of that culture. Instead of taking a hard long look at yourself and your country, you want to control the debate. You want people talk like you want. You do want the support of your views and not anything else. You get offended. You get insulted. You act like somebody is calling your mama something dirty. But I am not laughting at you.

    Strawman number two – or perhaps a reading problem.

    Persistent strawman claim in the absence of fact. Childish and immature indeed.

    “You are offended when blacks say that whites should examine their heads, right? Why?”

    Strawman number three. My response to that is the same as a black persons would be – whites and blacks are not a monolithic entities. In a generic sense everyone should examine their heads all the time. However you don’t know what I think, any more than someone who claims that whites have a “crack in their souls”. Some do. Most don’t.

    “I think that kind of thinkin was very much similar as the one which americans had when they slaved blacks and tried to wipe out the native americans. Arguments were very much the same for similar reasons.”

    Very likely, at least for some. Other Americans held the opposing point of view. At the beginning a compromise was attempted in the hope that slavery would end I suppose. In the end however an extremely bloody war had to be fought. In Germany no such actions occurred, although there were some Germans opposed to the system no significant rebellion happened.

    “The reasons behind the civil war were more complicated than just about slavery.”

    Of course it was. Do you really want to go off in the direction of state’s rights vs the central government and other related issues? The fact is that the rebellion itself was sparked by the election of Lincoln who it was feared would end slavery.

    “General Lee was an officer in US army before the conflict and originally wanted no war at all in which he was forced to take part in. ”

    General Lee believed he was a Virginian first, an American second, as did many other at that time. The war forced him to choose.

    “Did USA hug and kiss the native population and accepted them as brothers?”

    Did you expect to jump from the end of slavery to love in an instant? Nothing I’m aware of evolves that quickly, especially when attitudes have to die with the person before they change.

    On public drinking fountains and the NA incidents, I don’t know. The drinking fountains were a fixture in particular areas of the country, ended with “separate but equal” doctrine.

    “That is why the country is very much a hypocracy, moralistic nation, which talks about the right things and does something else. You are part of that culture.”

    I agree completely – including many other actions like the war in Iraq, torture of prisoners, the war on drugs, the negative influences of the churches, the distortion of money power, the ignorance of the electorate, on and on. You won’t find me disagreeing with any of that.

    “Instead of taking a hard long look at yourself and your country, you want to control the debate.”

    Nonsense. I can’t possible “control the debate”. I also have a very jaundiced eye towards this country given that my wife and I talk about becoming political refugees to another country should the Republicans win the next election. You don’t know me, or what “hard looks” I’ve done in the past or continue to do. You’d rather make unsupportable claims.

    “You want people talk like you want. You do want the support of your views and not anything else. You get offended. You get insulted. You act like somebody is calling your mama something dirty. But I am not laughting at you. I feel deep sorry.”

    More repetitive strawman claims. Get over them, they are not factual they are merely an attempt to make me the subject of your debate rather than whatever issue exists. If that’s how you debate, I can well believe that you’ve never gotten anywhere with one.

Why is it so hard for black people to accept that they are inferior i mean we are really giving you a favour to include you in the modern human category but since you haven’t had any civilization of worth whatsoever no scientist whatsoever no inventors you have absolutely contributed nothing to this world on the other hand everything you are enjoying in the modern world has been invented by Caucasians (and i don’t use the word white since a lot of people think race is about colour which it isn’t it is about the shape of the skull and people of European and middle eastern decent are considered Caucasian) and I mean every invention and amazing discoveries in science,art, music,literature from the ancient times, be it the Persian empire, Greece, Roman empire to the middle age empires of the holy Roman empire Ottoman empire to the renaissance age with great inventors such as Leonardo da Vinci up to the modern world with inventions such as auto mobile, air plane, modern machinery they have all been invented by Caucasians all three types be it Nordic(Germans, Dutch, Norwegians, Swedish etc.),alpine(Russians, Swiss, etc..) or Mediterranean(Italians, Spanish, Greek, French, Persians etc..) we have proved ourselves to be the most advanced human beings, I mean you people could have achieved these as well but that’s how nature is some become smarter and more creative and others don’t and it’s nothing to get upset about it is just how nature works, you don’t see a baboon complaining about not being as smart as a chimpanzee haha, but that’s how evolution is we Caucasians have evolved more than others from our ancestor Australopithecus which closely resembles modern chimpanzee. By the way have you ever wondered why blacks look very similar to chimpanzees and have achieved the least and why Caucasians look the least like chimpanzees and have achieved the most, it give you something to think about. You people even comparing yourselves to us is pathetic in the least.

    Missippi:

    In the momentous step which our State [Mississippi] has taken of dissolving its connection with the government of which we so long formed a part, it is but just that we should declare the prominent reasons which have induced our course.

    Our position is thoroughly identified with the institution of slavery– the greatest material interest of the world.

    Its labor supplies the product which constitutes by far the largest and most important portions of commerce of the earth. These products are peculiar to the climate verging on the tropical regions, and by an imperious law of nature, none but the black race can bear exposure to the tropical sun. These products have become necessities of the world, and a blow at slavery is a blow at commerce and civilization. That blow has been long aimed at the institution, and was at the point of reaching its consummation. There was no choice left us but submission to the mandates of abolition, or a dissolution of the Union, whose principles had been subverted to work out our ruin.

    Jefferson Davis:

    ..if I had not believed there was justifiable cause; if I had thought that Mississippi was acting without sufficient provocation, or without an existing necessity, I should still… because of my allegiance to the State… have been bound by her action. I, however, may be permitted to say that I do think she has justifiable cause, and I approve of her act.

    I conferred with her people before that act was taken, counseled them then that if the state of things which they apprehended should exist when the convention met, they should take the action which they have now adopted…

    It has been a conviction of pressing necessity, it has been a belief that we are to be deprived in the Union of the rights which our fathers bequeathed to us, which has brought Mississippi into her present decision. She has heard proclaimed the theory that all men are created free and equal, and this made the basis of an attack upon her social institutions [i.e., slavery]; and the sacred Declaration of Independence has been invoked to maintain the position of the equality of the races.

    Cornerstone Speech:

    But not to be tedious in enumerating the numerous changes for the better, allow me to allude to one other though last, not least. The new constitution has put at rest, forever, all the agitating questions relating to our peculiar institution African slavery as it exists amongst us the proper status of the negro in our form of civilization. This was the immediate cause of the late rupture and present revolution.

    [Thomas] Jefferson in his forecast, had anticipated this [slavery], as the “rock upon which the old Union would split.” He was right. What was conjecture with him, is now a realized fact. But whether he fully comprehended the great truth upon which that rock stood and stands, may be doubted. The prevailing ideas entertained by him and most of the leading statesmen at the time of the formation of the old constitution, were that the enslavement of the African was in violation of the laws of nature; that it was wrong in principle, socially, morally, and politically. It was an evil they knew not well how to deal with, but the general opinion of the men of that day was that, somehow or other in the order of Providence, the institution would be evanescent and pass away. This idea, though not incorporated in the constitution, was the prevailing idea at that time. The constitution, it is true, secured every essential guarantee to the institution while it should last, and hence no argument can be justly urged against the constitutional guarantees thus secured, because of the common sentiment of the day.

    Those ideas, however, were fundamentally wrong. They rested upon the assumption of the equality of races. This was an error. It was a sandy foundation, and the government built upon it fell when the “storm came and the wind blew.”

    Our new government is founded upon exactly the opposite idea; its foundations are laid, its corner- stone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery subordination to the superior race is his natural and normal condition. This, our new government, is the first, in the history of the world, based upon this great physical, philosophical, and moral truth.

    This truth has been slow in the process of its development, like all other truths in the various departments of science. It has been so even amongst us. Many who hear me, perhaps, can recollect well, that this truth was not generally admitted, even within their day. The errors of the past generation still clung to many as late as twenty years ago. Those at the North, who still cling to these errors, with a zeal above knowledge, we justly denominate fanatics. All fanaticism springs from an aberration of the mind from a defect in reasoning. It is a species of insanity. One of the most striking characteristics of insanity, in many instances, is forming correct conclusions from fancied or erroneous premises; so with the anti-slavery fanatics. Their conclusions are right if their premises were. They assume that the negro is equal, and hence conclude that he is entitled to equal privileges and rights with the white man. If their premises were correct, their conclusions would be logical and just but their premise being wrong, their whole argument fails.

    I recollect once of having heard a gentleman from one of the northern States, of great power and ability, announce in the House of Representatives, with imposing effect, that we of the South would be compelled, ultimately, to yield upon this subject of slavery, that it was as impossible to war successfully against a principle in politics, as it was in physics or mechanics. That the principle would ultimately prevail. That we, in maintaining slavery as it exists with us, were warring against a principle, a principle founded in nature, the principle of the equality of men.

    The reply I made to him was, that upon his own grounds, we should, ultimately, succeed, and that he and his associates, in this crusade against our institutions, would ultimately fail. The truth announced, that it was as impossible to war successfully against a principle in politics as it was in physics and mechanics, I admitted; but told him that it was he, and those acting with him, who were warring against a principle. They were attempting to make things equal which the Creator had made unequal.

    I can offer a much more realistic reason why many whites dislike blacks, or at least don’t want to live with them and finance them. (note that most “white supremacists” don’t necessarily hate blacks)

    The main issues:

    1. Crime
    2. Low average IQ

    So instead of continuing this ridiculous discussion of the obscure roots of racism, look this stuff up. The average black IQ in the USA is 85, and cutting edge genetic and neuroscience produces overwhelming evidence that IQ is genetic (i.e. it can’t be changed).

    And just look at prisons. Before somebody thinks it, crime isn’t because of poverty – there are far more poor white people than there are poor black people but the prisons are full of blacks.

    So if 6x as many white people use and sell drugs as black people than how come 50% of people in jail on drug charges are black?

  361. Its fair to say that the black population of this world are in a disadvantaged position currently, and those facts must be respected. However, I feel this ‘blame game’ towards whites has gone out of hand and finger pointing from a black perspective is the order of the day, if not the only order of the day.

    Lets call a spade a spade without any emotional connotation.

    Since the black american aqcuired more ‘human rights’ in the public sphere they are more vocal towards the wrong doings of the white man, than having a faint idea about their own wrong doing and where it all started. Going back to the early 1200s, when african slave trading were strive amongst the arabian/islam community, those very chiefs of their respective clans had very little respect for their own community and were much worried about their own level of wealth and popularity. Its a given fact that those chiefs sold their own people towards enslavery, not by force, but by will. It is only in the 15 -1600s when the euro community became accustomed to the idea and participated.

    Looking back at that alone, does it not give one a sense of human abuse from one black man over another black man? Wher is the respect in that considering the modern black mans cry for more respect? If my mother was to pimp me for money in order to finance her lifestyle, do you ever think those i’m pimped to will respect me? I’ll leave that to you.

    Also some comments her relates to the fear whites have of black, does that mean the arabians are also fearful of the black man as the main ideology of black enslavement lies with them? Not sure about that. There are comments about white superiority, white racism etc etc. Apologies, in greater world history racial superiority has always been very visible amongst on racial cast over another one. The famous Ghandi believe that Indians should not live amongst blacks during the South African aparheid years as indians a culturally and racially more superior than blacks. Till today the chinese sees blacks as inferior, but in the same sentence the euro community too. So what is the issue her? Is there a level of insecurity amongst blacks. Do they need to use the blame culture to find some ideological culture. If I ask the average black american what he thinks needs to be done in africa, the continent of his roots, the general response I get is hmmmmm, then he finds a way back to blaming.

    Many of you commenting on this post don’t even have the faintest idea on the history of africa.

    I see some making comments; white superior men raping black inferior women. But yet forgetting that the black alpha male man does the same. Is it not wrong irrespective of whether it is white over black or black over black?

    Coming back to the African landscape and that of the tribal system, if malcolm x had to live during the 1200s, wheb slave trading was strive and accepted by the african chiefs, would he have spoken out against his own ‘brother’? Well if he did, let me tell you, the chief would not have thought twice to have him killed. Believe me, no one questions the african chief.

    But yet malcolm x had a voice against white oppression.

    In fair history, the african clans also oppressed. Now taking into consideration that the khoisan people of africa are the true african sons. Humanities genes comes from these people, not the black africans. African clans oppressed the khoisan, the khoisan was a graceful people. Not following the paths of war,peaceful in themselves and their culture. The khoisan has been present on the african continent from more than 30 000bc. Up till today the back african will not acknowledge this. How many african americans even know about the khoisan? Yet following blame culture as the only way to find meaning is the order of the day.

    Now don’t get me wrong. I find many faults with the white man. His ways and doings. But one thing i can say is that what happened was a clear indication of what humanity should not do. Is there not a lesson learned? Why blame, try to find ways of breaking down another person for wrongdoings if we can start living lives promoting racial equality. Is this not the path of perfecting humanity?

    The reason there appears to be a disproportionate number of blacks in prison for drug use is because most blacks arrested for drug dealing take a plea bargain. DA’s offer them a lower charge in return for pleading guilty and a quick resolution. They just don’t have the time to take every drug dealer to court for a long drawn out trial. They similarly offer drug users a deal in exchange for a quick resolution. Most people arrested for simple drug possession get a simple fine. They don’t go to prison regardless of race.

Holder didn’t invent those tactics, nor will they cease once he leaves office. And, frankly, it’s something we should all be concerned with.

    We all are smart enough that everyone doesn’t get along with everyone, but some cases are unique if not totally stupid. Some people dislike others because of their skin color. That’s it. And it’s time you and other people understand that simple fact. And before you try to turn it around and make it a “black” problem, let me stop you right there. The problem is that many whites are too blind to see that they are the ones with problems, and you fit that bill, Mary.

    And if you continue to deny that it’s the system of white supremacy and racism that is keeping many blacks down, then you will never learn a damn thing. It is the truth. Just because you disagree, can not, or will not see it doesn’t make it any less true, just like rich black folks do not cancel out the rule.

    In the end why not examine your own problems before you tell us about ours as if you know better. You certainly do not know better unless you shut up and listen and not judge. That is the only way your mind will evolve if you let it. But something tells me that you won’t being knowledgeable about black people using the news as reliable sources and all.

  378. First of all my name is Horrez White and i would like to say hi to everyone before i go any further and also i would like to say that what i am about to say is my opinion and how i feel so please do not get offended. My belief as to why i think some white people demonize,hate and fear people of color is because of guilt,jealousy and self hate. Why i say this is because to hate a race of people that has done nothing to them clearly shows me a great deal of self hatred because how you view others reflects on how you view yourself. Another thing a constant reminder to say the n word,paint an unfair picture of people of color and to constantly try to dehumanize people of color clearly shows me a great deal of jealousy.Its almost like when a friend or coworker talks badly about another coworker every time she see’s the coworker and for no reason at all but out of her own personal reasons which is a sign of jealousy.I think fear that white people have for people of color goes back to what i said guilt”..Nothing but fear of the unknown for what was done in the past and how it was done, yet looking at black men and how strong they are, and at how much strength they have some white people get and really feel intimidated by this.I believe these type of white people just hate themselves ,are selfish and full of self hatred.I believe that there are a lot of white people that wish they were black and the white women just love black men.I see it every day.

  382. Help me not be racist. Here is why I think I am.
    Three people in my life have been murdered, all by blacks.
    My house has been broken into twice, once by blacks-confirmed, the other time, blacks were convicted for breaking into houses in my neighborhood, so I think it is safe to assume they broke into mine too.
    I have been mugged once, by a black.
    My car has been broken into maybe 8 times in my life, no I don’t know who did it, but the more blacks moved into the neighborhood, the more frequent it became until I moved.
    From my business—– probably 75% of customer theft is by blacks, and
    about 90% of employee theft is by blacks.
    After 40+ years on this planet, no whites have murdered anyone I know, no whites have broken into my house (pretty damn sure) never been mugged by a white, etc.
    What do I do?
    I do not discriminate, but I do think I am racist. I think the black race commits more crime than any other. I do not like that. I have mostly black friends ( I know its a cliche to say that) but I do distance myself from getting to close to them. I get invited to parties or church, but I will not go with them. Mostly because I don’t want to be a part of that culture.

    Then remember that whites commit more crime than any other group due to sheer numbers, whites commit more serial numbers, rapes, and drug offenses due to sheer numbers, and remember that none of this means a thing about the race of the person.

    remember that the actions of a person are what they should be held accountable for, not their skin color.

    If you know nothing of the culture, don’t be so quick to equate it to violence because of what you claim happened to you in your life. Because remember that black people have had just as many terrible things done to them by white people. And yet they think your worth reaching out to, despite your obvious racist attitudes. If they can do that for you, then you should at least be able to do that for them and be honest with them.

    They aren’t your “black friends” if you are going to hold them responsible for the actions of some alleged black people. Especially when they likely have a lifetime of reasons to not reach out to white people and yet are willing to invite you into their circle.

  389. cleonette,

    That’s why I suspect NickT’s comment. It seems highly exaggerated that he came across so many black criminals in his lifetime.

    It’s ridiculous to think that criminality is synonymous with black culture as Nick pointed out in his comment. Even though he admitted he is a racist, it’s still preposterous to equate blackness with criminality. Then again, in this nation it’s as American as apple pie. The most disadvantaged and marginalized groups are often the ones most likely to be criminalized. Blacks in America have always been the scapegoat of so many problems in this society. However, rich whites are more likely to be seen as true examples of the American Dream who deserve protection and unrelenting respect.

    I also want to suspect that Nick may have made this up, the Phantom Black Man/Woman Syndrome. He may have made up those incidents to try to validate his hatred towards an entire group of people and gain some sympathy. Something seriously tells me that no white person on Earth has had that much bad luck from blacks. But what’s really telling is this:

    “After 40+ years on this planet, no whites have murdered anyone I know, no whites have broken into my house (pretty damn sure) never been mugged by a white, etc.”

    Here, we see white people as incapable of being as criminal minded or violent compared to blacks. The thing is, even if this sentence is true, there are countless other whites who have been murdered, robbed, and mugged by other whites. Just because his family hasn’t been victimized by other whites, doesn’t mean that whites as a whole don’t harm each other.

    For example, I knew a white woman who told me that she was gang raped by a group of white men. (Amazingly, this never made the news.) So, she definitely has been a victim of white-on-white violence.

    Also, a couple of weekends ago, two white men committed an armed robbery at a local store.

    Still, those two examples are nothing compared to the worst atrocities caused by white men.

    “I think you ought to take into consideration that when a white person doesn’t like you, it’s probably not because you’re black, but it’s because they just don’t like you.”—That does happen but everytime that happens (taking skin color out of the equation) it is usually the result of jealousy. I have been there before myself. I was jealous of this other black girl mainly because she had everything I thought I wanted. Little did I know she was jealous of me because she thought I had everything she wanted. We talked about each other and did not like each other. I had to do some soul searching. In most cases people don’t really know what they are jealous about because they do convince themselves they have nothing to be jealous of. Rule of thumb usually is if you like someone for no reason at all. You have not one reason, then it is usually some type of jealousy

  394. “we know that white people usually do not view people of color as fully human” and you wonder why people think you’re generalizing and saying “all”? Being biracial and gay, I have my own beef with this blog and the black community in general. How about you talk about the rampant homophobia and sexism in parts of the black community (the high black vote in CA that caused prop 8 to pass being an example)? Or how black churches (ironically using the white’s religion) speak out about and vote in blocs against GLBT people? Or the disproportionate number of GLBT people, white or black, and especially transgender, that are killed by black heterosupremacists? Why black gay/bi men have to be on the “down low” because they are so afraid of the reaction from their communities, of being told they’re “no longer black” , as happened to me and so many others? Unfortunately it seems being an oppressed group makes you more likely to oppress others when you have an advantage, not less, and as poc we need to admit that we are just as prone to that as the rest of humanity. White people got lucky with guns, germs, and steel and western europe grabbed the advantage. Would we have been any better in their shoes? Judging by how some of us treat women and gays, probably not. That is not to say that there isn’t plenty of homophobia and sexism in the white community. But at least it is talked about. Too often if any of us, white or black, mention anything about homophobia in communities of color, we’re told we’re racist and to shut up. Tracy Morgan and Roland Martin being good examples-there were a lot of excuses for their behavior and even accusations of racism (apparently not thinking GLBT folks are human is okay) There is such a thing as straight privilege and male privilege, and too often just like you feel that white people play down white privilege, I feel that some (notice, I won’t say all) POC who are straight and/or male pretend that neither of those give them any advantages. And they do, at least in certain circumstances. Even the worst white supremacist prefers a black hetero couple to a white gay one. Honestly I’ve been overall treated better by white liberals and white (and black) glbt people then by supposed “black liberals”. I’ve experienced a lot more homophobia in the black community than racism outside of it. People can be oppressed in some areas and have privilege in others. Being a member of a group privileged in one way doesn’t automatically equal privilege in everything, and it’s not fair to target innocent white GLBT people as some kind of “revenge” (I’ve seen it done). Bring up the word “gay” to some of the most “liberal” “godfearing” anti racists, both white and black, and watch the homophobia come out. It will be interesting to see how quickly the anti gay remarks spring up on this blog. Besides sexuality and gender, there are also things like disability, class, etc (I agree with that you said about voting against their own class as far as white people go). As a gay person who’s been harassed by angry poc coming out of a lesbian club late at night (it’s in a neightborhood where it’s not wanted, but it has a right to be there), I can tell you, the knife can cut both ways. When I, being biracial, responded with “as a person of color I would think you would know better than to treat others that way” I got accused of being racist! Being a poc does not give you the right to oppress others with any privildge you do hold (ex, heterosexuality). It would be nice if other kind of oppression were addressed more (across all races, heterosuprmecay and gender affects poc too, they are often treated horribly by their own communities). That’s why I no longer hang out in black religious communities and most black communities I do hang out are for GLBT people. I’ve also been overall well accepted into the lesbian community by people of all colors. I’m barely accepted otherwise. Acting like the oppressor doesn’t make you free. It only makes you another oppressor.

I did a speech in regards to GLBT mistreatment in my college speech class and you would not believe the remarks I received from the white students. They automatically rated my speech as bad. The other black students like my speech and accepted it for what it is work.

Mormons are the only ones I have had the pleasure of seeing openly accept gays (you know the people gays claimed boycott them so much). Those white baptist are the ones I see run for the hills when a gay comes by. I have seen gays in black churches; Participating in church.

    You see Dana, Blacks have always been disrespected, harmed and even killed by whites in history (Yes, I said history) and even today. In many cases what they’ve done against us was way more destructive on so many levels than what we’ve done to them as a collective.

    No one said that it would be okay if it was a black man making the same statements. However, I’ve read and heard testimonies from PoC who dealt with the ignorance white people shoved in their faces while hiding behind a phony smile.

Who’s to say that NickT’s comment isn’t synonymous with the old ploy to make themselves out to be more worthy of being considered ‘victims’ only when black people express their pain and frustrations dealing with racism?

I chose to be a Christian and Christianity teaches that it is a sin. I have the right to that belief. I will believe that until I die. Does that mean I wish bad on people who are gay? No I do not. Am I violent against them? No. Christianity does not teach prosecution or violence. It says judge not least yea be judged. That means that Christians are not to treat anyone bad. That is not Christian behavior. Also, Christian does not equal perfect and heterosexual. We are at church because we are imperfect, not because we perfect. Think of church as a hospital for the soul. I am sorry if you have been subjected to any type of violence or condemnation, but I will not change my beliefs. I will treat someone homosexual no different than I treat anyone else. Believe me, people who call themselves Christian and do the things you are talking about are not just treating homosexuals like that. They probably treat everyone who do not share their beliefs bad, probably people that attend service with them too.

    There are white people out there that believe we blacks want money, to be treated superior, etc. We do not want that. Money does not satisfy people; look at the Kardashians. What we want is respect. We want to be respected and treated equally.

She was very angry but never showed it.

  411. Hi Sharina,
    Sorry about the Kardashian snipe.. It was just an attempt at humor to lighten up the post.
    I agree with you on most of your post. As far as giving up your traditions, that is something that is happening to all people regardless of race. Traditions our parents did, change with every generation, every generation finds traditions of there own and little by little the old traditions are gone and something else becomes a tradition. I grew up with big Sunday dinners with the whole family. For many years we did not do that for some reason everybody got busy, we are now doing it again as much as possible and showing our kids what it is all about. Hopefully they will carry that on. Growing up we were a typical big huge white Italian family…we are now a multi cultural, multi race, multi- language, mixed race, crazy beautiful family and it all works just fine..everybody is happy and we enjoy our differences..
    We can complain about how the country is this and this race is that and people from Europe or from wherever did this and that but when it all comes down to it, what are we going to do about it today? What are we going to do this very minute? I can’t change what others do or what people did years ago but what I can change and what you can change is what is inside our hearts and minds right now. If you want to preserve a tradition, language or anything special about who you are and where you came from, you do it and you do it happily and without worry what anybody thinks about it. Unfortunately if you can’t communicate with the majority of the population, it cuts down on your fun factor as a citizen in this country…What difference does a language make ? It is just a tool to communicate with each other..personally I like to pick up bits and pieces of different languages as it is something interesting and fun to be able to communicate a different way. If I moved to say France and wanted to be a citizen, I would learn French so I could communicate freely and not be scratching my head not knowing what people were saying to me..
    I don’t know all the answers but I do know what I think and I think that people are good and bad in every color…just as they are great in every color…
    I am sure there are many other people who feel the same way,

It took the death of my grandfather for us to really get started on doing it and making it stick. I prey that every single tradition, every single ounce of love I show for other races regardless of skin color, etc. passes on to my daughter. I have notice that it slowly does with my daughter. I personally am a big fan of education and I try my best to introduce my daughter to different cultures so she has respect for them and their beliefs.

    I agree that no one has all the answers and there are good and bad in every color, but what I fear more than anything is the good will get caught in the cross hairs of the bad. I worry abut that day in and day out. Believe it or not Joey….There are few that think the way you and I do. Even I was surprised at the few that do. I was blessed to be born in an area where although racial hatred is an issue, it has greatly decrease and we all get along fine here. To say a town like this is in the south is a weird phenomenon.

    I saw a black man and a white man greet each other with hugs and walk in the store together one day, so I know it is not all bad. I do know and realize for the racist out their they do it out of hate and jealousy and I don’t think they even realize they have this issue. They show the same signs that bullies show when they choose a victim and this is regardless of race as well.

I do not take this as a racist blog…I take it as the truth from their experiences in their life. I feel these blogs are great at addressing issues. I have seen white people come on here and ask questions and make statements in a respectful way and the the replies are respectful as well. But if you come on here angry and disrespectful…be sure that is what you will get in return. This is a great learning experience for me and has really taught me a great amount. It addresses many problems of today that people…white and black…turn their heads to if it does not affect them directly. And in my opinion it is only enabling racism and oppression to exist.

  417. I love this blog…I personally, I will tell you from my experience, as a white woman, my opinions of this subject….Personally I feel it comes from fear of an uprising among the black population. For so many years white men and women owned slaves and once those slaves were free…they saw how capable they were and that they actually had their own minds and free will. Well, in my opinion, it terrified them that they would become the slaves and have done to them what they had done to the black population..(please…if I say anything that is offensive let me know…I am still learning what terms and phrases are considered offensive and racist.)…so in turn for years and generations it is taught to their children to stay away from them and they are brainwashed to think that they are better, smarter, have better family values. I grew up in a small all white town from the north that hid racism very well. My parents moved there because they did not want to subject us to the race riots that she went through as a teenager. I remember the first time I ever met a black family…I was 6 yrs old and my parents saw them broken down on the I69 and they did not want to leave them there because no one was stopping to help. My parents brought them back to our house and I sat there watching and could not understand why everyone was so scared. The husband and wife were clutching each other tightly together along with their little girl. My parents were frantically trying to round up my dad’s tools so he could go fix the car. I could feel the tension and see how scared everyone was…but I did not understand. Then after everything was fixed and my parents dropped them off and followed them home to make sure it did not break down again. I kept asking why everyone was so scared and why their skin was brown. I didn’t understand because at the age of six no one had ever mentioned to me that there were people that were brown or what racism was. They finally told me what people in the town thought and how they feared for our and their safety. I have many memories of white racism and I will share them if anyone is interested. But since I have a tendency to type long posts (sorry) I am going to end this one here.🙂

    Although you may actually run away at this point, you need to actually realize that people on this blog are typing based on their experiences with whites. This does not refer to all whites and if you actually read anything you will understand that. The color of your skin does not matter if you can not gather a basic understanding of what the people in this room are actually talking about.

    “for a race that think they are superior you sure do act exactly like the people you claim to hate!”—-Not on person in the room acts or has claimed superiority over any race of people. For you to say such a statement means you yourself must believe blacks are superior.

    “Your an inferior race keeping racism going on the internet.”—This statement shows your stupidity. Blacks can not be inferior and superior. Pick one. Secondly you must not get around to blogs much. I have been to white blogs that say way more nasty things about blacks and people of color in general. This actually is much more civil but I can happily point you to a white blog to so you can see how civil racist and racism actually is.

    Lastly, I don’t hate whites. My daughters best friend is white. My neighbors are white. I have no reason to hate them. I am happy with myself so I actually see no real reason to put down another race. The whites I personally know feel the same. The way I see it if you are comfortable with yourself then you have no need to hate or put down another race. There are whites that do this on a regular basis and there are blacks that do this as well. This particular blog is referring to the whites that do it.

    Most of the individuals in here have actually experienced racism from racist whites today. That is right…in 2012 and that is what the blog is referring to.

    Have I meet white they are describing?…no because all of the whites I have meet are confident and strong etc. The racist whites usually show these characteristics though.

    My wife was mugged last week by a black man, I wasn’t surprised at all, I grew up in bed-stuy before gentrification, I don’t need an education on this stuff I lived it and have more reasons than I can count to be wary of blacks. it has nothing to do with me thinking I’m better than blacks or them being inferior or whatever, it really is just common sense.

I can’t tell them a darn thing. Most of the blacks I know are just like me.

    “it has nothing to do with me thinking I’m better than blacks or them being inferior or whatever, it really is just common sense.

You do realize that there are racist whites and normal wholesome whites? (I always ask this so don’t be offended…you will be surprised at how many people can’t tell the difference).

    There is a major difference between taking caution and even more of a difference in blacks depending on your area. Again I live in an area where blacks nor whites act into all the craziness. There are those in each party that commit crimes. White mean in my stated commit a large rate of sexual assault crimes usually against minors. Do I fear all white men? No. I see black gangs on the news. Do I fear going to the hood or in the Ghetto? No. Do I blame the white race for those sexual deviants? No. Do I blame blacks for those gang violent deviants? No.

I stand by what I wrote, you have your world view I have mine. The original writer of these absurd racist essays is just provoking people I know that (as race discussions typically do), you have some white people trying to get the nod of approval from the blacks in here even as they trash their entire race (which is pathetic). Then you have me who has never cared about political correctness. You want to know why whites “fear” and “hate” blacks (using the OPs words)???? Simple – you haven’t shown that you are able to behave like civilized people as a whole within a society. You make up what 12% of the population and account for over half of all violent crimes. Really that is why, you are largely uneducated, and largely you are violent as a collective whole. Blacks can’t want this brotherhood and community then reject it when the negatives are shown. It has nothing to do with whites having no soul or no self worth like you claim. It seriously is the behavior of the black community in terms of education, and crime that makes white weary of blacks.

    Look at the Treyvon Martin case, national uproar among blacks which I can understand, but where is the outrage over the hundreds of Treyvons murdered in Chicago by blacks? Where is Jesse? Where is Obama? It shows the black communities inability to try and fix their own problems, much easier to blame everyone else.

    Look at Africa, you blame the white man, but how many mass rapes are committed there? How many genocides? Is there ONE country that has a functional government on the entire Continent? The only country that was decent was South Africa and that was when white people were running the place, now it’s a complete disaster.

    Linda says,

    Liftin, no sarcasm intended,

    but ‘why is it so difficult for white Americans to understand that the reason black Americans are upset with the Trayvon Martin case was for the simple fact that Zimmerman was not arrested initially?’

    The outcry from the black community was about Double-Standards. That their biggest complaint was over police conduct and what they viewed as police non-action. Why do whites like you keep missing that fact?

    With all the crime that is being done by blacks, as you keep pointing out, the majority of them get detained and arrested for their crimes. This was the point that black Americans were making.

    The police do a stellar job at arresting black perpetrators, especially when they admit they killed someone (like Zimmerman), so that people who like statistics can throw those numbers into black Americans faces and talk about crime because the police are on top of their jobs in the black community and those black criminals get arrested.

    Black Americans are protesting this case because they feel the police were applying double-standards when it comes to the perpetrator getting arrested.

    Why are white Americans missing this point even though black Americans keep repeating this over and over…

    Also, do you attend a black church, or work with minority-based organizations that have outreach programs…do you have regular contact with the black community for you to say that blacks arent’ doing anything about crime in the black community?

    —Is this all you got. As I have stated in my post a majority of blacks have there shit together, but not all of them are in the news like the ones that commit crimes. What part of that do you not understand or are you so wrapped up in the “oh it’s blacks fault” blanket that you can not grasp that concept. What makes you mad is that is is actually true because you want the ones to have it together to take responsibility for the ones who don’t. You want that excuse to hate all blacks and in reality you have nothing.

    “It shows the black communities inability to try and fix their own problems, much easier to blame everyone else.”

    —A lot of black leaders work with the youth in there areas, but not all of them count on jesse, obama, and al. Do your research buddy because so far you are hitting 0 for 0.

    “Look at Africa, you blame the white man, but how many mass rapes are committed there? How many genocides? Is there ONE country that has a functional government on the entire Continent?”

    —Again do some research. It was the white male interference that lead to them reacting like that. The “I can fix everything” attitude. So do some research!!! Also as I said before…Why should I take blame for issues half way across the world.

    White fear of blacks cannot be accounted for by crime. Patterns of white flight and police profiling show that their fear goes way beyond what is rational.

    Blacks commit about half the murders in America yet whites are something like six times more likely to be killed by a white person instead. That shows that the levels at which white keep themselves apart from blacks go far beyond what is rational from the point of view of mere crime. There is more to it than what you are saying.

  470. The slave trade in Africa still runs

    White slavery exists in both the U.S. and in Europe, especially Eastern Europe. White girls are kidnapped and sold off to sex slavers.

    genocide in Africa is rampant

    Where? Tell me exactly where in Africa genocide is happening at this moment. If you bring up a past genocide, I’m afraid I must remind you of the many genocides committed by Europeans.

    cutting off limbs

    In the 30 years Belgium was in the Congo, they dismembered and killed millions of Black Africans. Perhaps the current Africans learned this from them.

    mass rapes

    From master/slave rapes to White college kids drugging and date raping White women, I don’t think you are in a position to talk about rape.

    endless war

    America has been in a war for almost every decade of it’s existence.

    bombing cities

    See above.

    wiping out millions of other blacks

    Not only do Whites kill other Whites, they kill plenty of other people as well. See, above.

    Bottom line is, I don’t live in an African country, I live in America. Many, if not most, of the problems stated in this blog pertain to America and the Western World in general, not Africa (at least that’s what it seems to me). I don’t want to play tit-for-tat. We can talk about each others “motherland” all day, but that’s not the real focus. The real focus is the treatment of Blacks living in the Western world. Africa really has nothing to do with it, since, as you say, it’s Black on Black. This is about Black and White.

    Now if you can refute the grievances of Blacks living in the Western world, then fine. But don’t bring up Africa when Europe has it’s own set of problems.

    The problem with the numerous White bigots that come to this site is that many simply are simple minded people. They may have a great rote memory for information, but they lack the mental sophistication to extrapolate data and come to any conclusion other than a grossly simplistic explanation. Many times they will take raw data, without proper context, and weave it into their own bigoted psyches, inadvertently strengthening their cultural bias. Then they present this “insightful information” as scientific gospel to the people on this blog. I will concede that we all do this to a degree, but I think those with social privilege are less likely to scrutinize any material that tells them they are less than special or, at the very least, the “norm”.

    Furthermore, when the White bigot’s opposition offers their own scientific sources, these scientists are accused of being left-wing, socialist, communist, too liberal and a whole host of different slurs used in order to shatter their legitimacy. Then when Blacks question the bigots’ sources, the bigots are incensed that the “lowly ne-gro” is questioning their White authority.

    I’m sorry if we are not a bunch of “kool-aid” drinkers (actually JJ killed those people with cyanide mixed with FLAVOR-AID, a kool-aid knock-off brand). If you were in a society where people are, at best, indifferent to your suffering, you’d be wary of any claims that demonize you or your ethnicity/race as well. You appear to lack genuine empathy towards Blacks because you see Black people as foreign. Although, I don’t like the methods than White society utilizes to stay in existence, I understand the reasons behind it. How about you try to understand Blacks, instead of posting snarky comebacks and pseudo-insightful lubtish. Or is that a little too close to the battlefield for your comfort zone?

However, I’m all for giving the Indians back the one percent of land they occupied.

    Why do the ‘blacks’ have to go back to Africa?

    Blacks are the ones who should leave since Africa is their homeland and their ancestors were kidnapped against their will. The proper thing to do is to return the kidnapped home, right?

    Yes, I realize there is a Black middle and upper class. However, Blacks in large numbers almost always destroy any school or neighborhood they move into, turning it into a crime ridden slum. I know from EXPERIENCE. Look at Detroit or any other American urban city. Blacks commit crime far, far in excess per capita of their numbers. Blacks attack Whites as a rate of FORTY times the reverse. When you rape, attack and murder OUR people, we have every right to be very angry. It’s not just Whites either, NO race, be they Asians or Hispanics, wants to live around large numbers of Blacks.

    “You can happily take credit for stealing most of what you think you invented. America is not your land. I see more whites living the welfare dream than I see blacks. ”

The answer is none.

    Blacks have to keep playing the “victim card” because they know that many of today’s spineless Whites will feel guilty. However, things are changing and more and more Whites are growing a backbone and are getting fed up with giving so much only to be hated and bashed.

I’m not saying that no other race contributed to building America, but up a couple of decades ago, America was ninety something percent White, so Whites did create America, just like the Chinese created China, the Mexicans created Mexico and so forth..

    Abagond should ban your ass just for the sheer stupidity of this statement…

    Whites did not found “America”, no more than they founded South Africa, Hispaniola, various parts of the Yucatan Peninsula or any other place that had been captured and colonized by them. Answer me this–where did the name America come from anyway? Hint: The vast majority of what we think of as north america today had many, many–if not thousands of languages, different ehtnic groups of the indigenous people who once were in abundance here, birth rituals, naming rituals, etc, etc…

    Why should Whites go back to Europe?

    The more appropriate question is why won’t they? You are way too backwards for your brothers and sisters in continental Europe–they believe in socialism, while”you” are still clinging on to an epic fail called capitalism–France has an obesity rate just hovering over 8%, while your “family” here is 23% and rising, so “ya’ll” are too fat to join them. The same obseity trends can be found in Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Denmark,etc. But, the grand finale is this–Europe is not lilywhite anymore and you will be surrounded by a plethora of black, brown, and yellow people! Much like you are trying to escape here–but you won’t ever–no matter where you go in the world cause WE are going to be there. Black communities are springing up in the Ukraine and Croatia–my husband’s colleauge and our good friend who is white and from Croatia was telling us how happy she was about this!

    “However, I’m all for giving the Indians back the one percent of land they occupied.”

    —They only occupied 1%. LOL that is rich and stupid.

    “Anyways, the first people who came to America were the Clovis people from Europe 20,000 years ago or at least if not first, they came around the same time as the Indians.”

    —Errr wrong. Go back to school or online search or something. Clovis people were believed to be from Asian or European decent not just European. This is based on DNA found in American Indians. ” DNA actually suggest that there was a group before them, so try again.

    “Anyways, if the land were “stolen” as you say, then Blacks are also benefiting by staying on the stolen land and that’s wrong, right?”

    —Well see based on your logic this actually is blacks land. Our ancestors had a large chunk of putting it together for sorry racist whites to occupy. I would say we should benefit to some extent considering us and Indians families build it with blood sweat and tears.

    “Don’t give me the nonsense about Blacks slaves building America, they didn’t.”

    —Actually they did. White people were so freaking lazy back then they never even nursed their own young. Black women took milk from their own breast to nurse white men who grew up and treated them just as back as their fathers. Raped their daughters and created laws to justify it. Black cooked for whites, built house for whites, tilled land for whites, built road, etc. So please tell me what white society did other than just sit back and enjoy it. Bark commands maybe. You really need to start doing your research. I mean really.

    “Anyways, Blacks are the ones complaining about Whites so they are the ones who should return to their homeland, that would solve their problem.”

    —I guess you missed that lecure about not all whites and me mentioning returning to Africa. See how whites like to believe it is all their idea and can not read to boot.

    “Yes, I realize there is a Black middle and upper class. However, Blacks in large numbers almost always destroy any school or neighborhood they move into, turning it into a crime ridden slum. I know from EXPERIENCE.”

    —Actually this is where you wrong and I am going to pull a duck and say you are bias. Just because you have that issue in your area does not mean it is all blacks. It has been stated not once but several times on this post (which I know now you fail to read) that many blacks are not like that but low and behold stupid takes hold of people like you and you believe anything the media tells you but are the same idiots calling media bias when they show the true nature of a white killer.

    “When you rape, attack and murder OUR people, we have every right to be very angry.”

    —Ok so you just basically made some of the individuals point in here. Whites have been raping black women for centuries so we are justified in being angry. Nice to know you agree. Not to mention the white men that kill blacks unjustly. Remember the good ole kkk and the massive hangings they have done and the black guy that was dragged behind his truck by whites….oh I could just go on and on. But you don’t really want to hear about my justifications do you?

    “It’s not just Whites either, NO race, be they Asians or Hispanics, wants to live around large numbers of Blacks.”

    —Why is it white racist always try to convince themselves that it’s not them it’s Asians too (Hispanic is not a race numb nuts…go back to school get a real education)? For starters go to an Asian blog. They don’t really like white people as much as you whites claim. They are smart enough to use white people, but tolerate is really all you can get from them. Secondly you need to travel because we actually live in neighborhoods with large some of blacks and a few whites. We don’t have many Asians around here.

    “Wrong, we didn’t “steal” anything and America is OUR land and you’re lucky you’re here. More Blacks are on welfare per capita than Whites by far, the welfare being paid for by you guessed it, EVIL YT.”

    —Actually it is more my land do to the Native American mixture in my blood and I can tell you many other blacks have that backing. Secondly as a Native American that and see how quick he might spit in your face. You stole their land and forced them into caps to become white or as it was stated back then “civilized.” They peacefully occupied the land before white people. When whites came they drove them off of it. When they migrated and tried to start again more whites came and drove them off that…Those that went peacefully anyway.

    As far as welfare you might want to recheck those numbers and post them. Tell yourself what you want if you like. That is what white racist like you usually do. Oh and welfare is paid for by tax payers dumby…You know in which blacks pay into.

  527. Joe,

    I just want to thank you for the entertaining story you just shared. I always enjoy a bit of fiction sprinkled with truth.

    You’ve just confirmed my theory that you Americans have mediocre secondary schools, which I believe should be responsible for teaching history properly(Universities don’t and shouldn’t have to pick up the slack)

    Seriously though,

    I’d like to think that your anger at the posters caused you to share your views in the skewed direction that you presented it because you present yourself as an educated person.

    So, I do believe you know, that even though white Europeans invaded and occupied the new world and slaughtered and displaced millions of Natives, without the Native Indians help, whites would not have survived in the Americas.

    Without Squanto’s help and guidance, the Plymouth Colony would not have survived.

    http://www.millsgen.com/gen/hist/pilstor4.htm

    Also, the Massachusetts colonists had to form mutual defense treaties with several Native Indian nations who agreed to help them fight other Indian nations that were trying to get rid of the white colonists (as well as the French)

    i hope you also know that the Virginia and Pennslyvania colonies had to form treaties with the Iroquois Nation to prevent all out war, and that Your great statesmen, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin, were involved with leaders of the New York-based Iroquois Confederacy.

    Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin, formed their ideas of democracy by using the ‘Great Law of Peace of the Iroquois Nation’, as the framework to write the American Constitution (They also copied ideas from France)

    I find most white Americans have this belief that their forefathers achieved everything on their own, with no help from others, then you all (Americans) turn around and wonder why the rest of the world can’t stand you (and NO, it’s not jealousy)

    But, members in every society have a need to feel good about themselves and their forefathers, so I can’t fault you for continuously drinking the Kool-Aide.

    “OMG – and he actually believes this!”(Whites have done more for Blacks)

    It’s the truth, deny it all you want. The FACTS back it up.

    “Abagond should ban your ass just for the sheer stupidity of this statement…Whites did not found “America”,”

    You’re the one who is stupid. I was talking about the nation the USA, NOT the continent. Christ you’re thick. Yes, Whites did create the country called the USA-Blacks didn’t create it, neither did Mexicans, or Asians. Up until about 4 decades ago, the USA was around 94% White and there was little racial diversity.

    “—They(Indians) only occupied 1%. LOL that is rich and stupid”

    That is true. If ya want to see rich/stupid, look at yourself lol. Indians were nomadic tribes that fought against each other and combined together only occupied about one percent of what is today the USA and Canada. The myth that Whites “stole” all of the land is just a guilt trip used on Whites. Like I said, I’m all for giving Indians back the amount they occupied.

    Non-Whites of every race in past history stole, slaughtered others, invaded and did everything that Whites did and were just as bad if not worse so spare me the only-Whites-are-so-evil schtick. Asian mongols invaded Europe, and stole, slaughtered and raped. If I used your silly mindset, then I could say Europeans were later justified in later attacking the Asiatic Indians but of course I don’t.

    “The more appropriate question is why won’t they”(Whites back to Europe)

    Why should we? We created and founded the USA. Imagine though if all Whites today went back to Europe, it would be a disaster for Blacks.

    “—Actually they did(slaves built America). White people were so freaking lazy back then they never even nursed their own young.”

    Can anyone be this stupid? A few of the rich had Black wet nurses. Really, you’re delusional.

    “Black cooked for whites, built house for whites, tilled land for whites, built road, etc. So please tell me what white society did other than just sit back and enjoy it. Bark commands maybe. You really need to start doing your research. I mean really.”

    No you really need to do your research. A FEW RICH WHITES had Blacks do the work, 95% of all Whites did their own work.ROFLMAO

    “—Errr wrong. (Whites being in the Americas first or same time)Go back to school or online search or something.”

    There is increasing evidence that a small amount of Whites were either here first or came around the same time as the Indians based on numerous tools only found in Europe as well as caucasian skeletons. It is very probable that at least some Europeans did come much, much earlier as the Ice Age hit Europe hard and Europeans too would have had to travel to find food.

    “—Ok so you just basically made some of the individuals point in here. Whites have been raping black women for centuries so we are justified in being angry.”

    Another tired myth and lie. White slave owners raping slaves was uncommon, not saying it never happened but it was not common. Back in the past, there was no birth control, so if Whites raping Black slaves were common, there would be huge amounts of half Black babies but mulattos only made up a small portion of the populace and many of those were the result of willing sex. Half Black/Whites are far more common today with all the birth control we have then back then. Black men have raped far more White women than ever was the reverse.

    “Remember the good ole kkk and the massive hangings they have done and the black guy that was dragged behind his truck by whites….oh I could just go on and on. But you don’t really want to hear about my justifications do you?”

    Massive hangings, more nonsense. Whites too were lynched as well as Blacks. Back then, if someone was believed to have committed a crime, they were strung up without trial at times, wrong though it was.Lynchings for Blacks averaged about 40 per year, Whites about half that. Compare that with the average Black on White yearly murder rate today of 2,500 TODAY in America, EVERY 18 months, Blacks murder and equal number of Whites than Whites lynched Blacks in ALL of American history.

    “—Why is it white racist always try to convince themselves that it’s not them it’s Asians too (Hispanic is not a race numb nuts…go back to school get a real education)? For starters go to an Asian blog. They don’t really like white people as much as you whites claim. They are smart enough to use white people, but tolerate is really all you can get from them”

    Oh, the old “racist” card, yawn. Personally, I don’t care what Asians or Hispanics think of Blacks. (yes I realize they are not a “race” per se but treat them as such because they are a seperate “minority” group) However, I don’t need to convince myself of anything, on average Asians/Hispanics do NOT like Blacks and think them inferior, especially Asians. I also never said Asians liked Whites. Yes,some Asians use us because today, Whites are affected with a sick altruism and this needs to change amongst Whites.

    I realize that the early Indians help the original colonists to survive. I also realize that Whites at that time did kill and displace Indians(not millions there were only 200,000 to 2 million) and that was wrong. As I said. I’m all for giving the Indians back the percentage of the land they occupied. However, most of N.America was not “invaded” as it wasn’t occupied nor did it belong to anyone. Also, non-Whites in the past ,all over the world, invaded, slaughtered, raped and stole from others including Asiatic mongols doing this to Europeans long before Europeans did this to Asiatic Indians in the Americas. All races were horrible in the past, Whites TODAY have no more reason to feel guilty than any other race.

Do you think that WW would want to know about their men creeping down to the slave quarters in the wee hours and creating ‘brown’ babies? How would society cope with the fact that these, often pillars of society sated their lustful desire by sleeping with a woman deemed inferior and potentially not even seen as human?

    Those depraved and disgusting slave owners frequently raped and assaulted their black slaves imposing on them in a way they couldnt or wouldnt do to their wives.

    —No one said They should and before you start raging off topic again most of this is what you brought up. You claimed a large sum of this crap in the beginning of how this land belong to whites, which it did not. DO you know the definition of invade? Look it up. You can’t invade something that has no occupants. You can’t invade empty land so now you are starting to contradict yourself. You can not claim that Indians did not occupy all of it only a small amount and at that same moment claim whites invaded the rest of the empty lands. Once you do that research then you might want to take another look at what you said.

    AS far as the American school system, from my experience in it we always learned blacks all came over as slaves. Even you are arguing this ignorant point and yet you are so against the system. It took me going to college and taking an Woman History course to learn that there were blacks that came over here free. Was actually always taught that white men did everything. Turns out the “good” white women did more undercover and blacks and Indians exceeded more than what whites will admit.

    “Yes, our forefathers did achieve most everything on their own, just like the forefathers of any other country did.”

    —You need to stop trying to claim most because if you cared to research you would actually find how much was stolen from blacks, Asians, etc. and claimed as white inventions. Start with who actually co-invented the light bulb (no Edison did not do it all alone as people have been taught).

    “Blacks have high obesity rates(thanks to all the EBT cards that Whites pay for for their food and drank), though more American Whites are obese than are Europeans.”

    —Stupid and backwards. LOL. Where to begin. I guess you missed that episode of American obesity. I guess you also missed the TV 600lbs. Staring a white woman who can’t get out of her house. Oh did you forget the fat white lady that wanted to sue McDonalds because she was fat or was it he hmmmm….If I am to believe the white stereotype then aren’t all blacks athletes? Again this is where you need to actually do some research weight varies depending on height. What is considered obese for one is not obese for another, so any statistic you put in the table will not be of any good unless test actually factor that in. Also as I have stated before and I will be providing links. White women are more likely to get government assistances programs and with that being said they would actually more likely be on EBT.

    “Again, if Whites are so evil, why do Blacks and others follow them everywhere going to their countries? Why can’t Blacks make a success of their own nations?”

    —You just asked that question so no need for the Again, but it has already been answered. Do you not realize that blacks do not follow whites right? Africa was invaded by whites, Blacks were forced here, and to other European countries by whites. They did procreate in those areas. You can’t be stupid enough to ask this but then again you already proved that.

    “She won’t be as the numbers of Blacks and all the crimes and welfare usage increases.”

    —You keep claiming it but do not post any statistics to it although you have claimed you have them to prove it. Also you are now trying to claim all blacks are on welfare. You must be blowing a fuse.

    Joe–Hahahahaha…you called ME, politically correct and brainwashed too….hahaha…that was cute…my fantastic English must have clued you in….your entertainment quota is going up:-)

    You assume too much, sunshine, and I don’t want you to live up to being the caricature of the saying ‘when you assume….”

    I’ll ignore half of what you said because I must have hurt your feelings, so you wish to lash out…dry your eyes Joe and lets start again.

    so, Let’s pick up where I left off:

    NO, Joe, your forefathers did not achieve everything on their own. They did achieve many things but they had LOADS of help.

    I see you completely ignored the fact that your Declaration of Independance and American Constitution got it’s backbones from the Iroquois Nation

    http://www.lightparty.com/Spirituality/Iroquois.html

    So, thank the Native Indians for introducing your white forefathers to Democracy.

    Now, let’s talk about this Native Indian population number you keep squaking about.

    It’s estimated that in 1776, there were 2.5 million people living in the American colonies. The first official census, 1790, recorded 3,929,214 people of the United States. (The Indian nations weren’t included)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1790_United_States_Census

    Native Indians were only included in US after they were herded onto Reservations in 1860, so JOe, you have NO idea how many natives lived in America, since your own white ancestors had NO CLUE.

    http://www.archives.gov/research/census/native-americans/1790-1930.html

    It was estimated that the Aztecs alone, were about 125 million (and that was just the tippy, tippy, Southwest).

    to paraphrase you, “Christ, Joe, can you really be so ignorant?
    (Christ, Linda can you really be this ignorant?)…you wish I was ignorant. As it stands, it’s going to take me days to re-educate you because the Kool-aide jug you drank from was massive.

    What’s also kind of hilarious is how you are so certain about Your so called FACTS when your own American historians admit they don’t know the how many Native Indians there were in North America and they can’t even agree on an estimated number.

    Alfred Kroeber thought it was 8.4 million, and “Henry Dobyns, an anthropologist, claimed in 1966 that there were between 10 and 12 million people north of Mexico in 1492, and between 90 and 112 million in all of the Americas.”

    http://highered.mcgraw-hill.com/sites/0072879130/student_view0/chapter1/where_historians_disagree.html

    Maybe you would have been better off attending your secondary school…the education is sort of free after all (yes, I know, you all pay taxes, blah, blah, blah…not as much as Europe though, cry babies)

    For you pleasure and perusal

    Why do Americans say that ‘Hispanic is not a Race’?

    I’ve heard this for the past few years and I am confused, considering that the average Caribbean, Central or South American Latino is mixed race (possible combinations of 2 or 3–European, Native Indian, and African),

    Since races are made up anyway, why can’t they be termed ‘Hispanic’?
    What race should they be?

    Is this another ‘only in America’ concept since no other country practices the ‘one drop rule’ (Only USA)

    I just wanted to quickly say this. In American culture, generally speaking, there is no mixed/biracial/coloured racial classification. It was phased out about a hundred years ago. Hispanics may be a mixed race, again generally speaking, but they will most likely be classified as White, Black or Latino (meaning a sort of watered down Native).

    Also, I have seen a fair amount of Australians and New Zealanders use the one-drop rule as well.

    Now that you have taken the time to research, then take the time to research black people. Blacks do not and have not ever condoned black crime no matter who the victim is. Blacks will likely shun their own to a much higher degree than most outside idiots think, especially when they commit crimes. For those that don’t speak up it is not due to not snitching as you have been so dumb enough to believe. Don’t snitch is a gang thing and it refers to gang members not snitching on other gang members.

    Blacks who usually witness crime do not speak out of fear for their life. Similar to white judges, officers, and other individuals who do not speak when Italian mobsters kill, steal, and do the like. The only difference is blacks are not offering those greedy judges, officers, etc. a cut of the profits. The blacks that committed that crime will more likely end up in jail and racist bigots like you can go on complaining about black crime rate and at the same time complain about how blacks never get caught. You people would not know your azz from a hole in the wall.

    Now go type in a search and find the churches and other black community organizations that are fighting black crime.

    I know the US government started using the term Hispanic in 70’s to cover anyone coming from a Spanish-speaking country, but I think by breaking them down into black or white is misleading, considering practically a new group of people were created by the bi- or tri-racial lineage that goes back many years (but due to La Raza, many people deny the Indio or African heritage)

    “Sharina@

    Very true, which is why I asked my question. Most Latinos don’t buy into the whole US Hispanic vs Latino debate anyway (they will call themselves by nationality)

    but to fit into the US paradigm of race, US based Hispanic / Latinos need to be described as something, since American society likes to put everyone in racial boxes, and calling them either white or black is inaccurate based on their mixed genealogy.

If you live in a well off neighborhood or even a middle class neighborhood…don’t let people in your house dressed in suits or slacks and ties that are trying to sell you something. They will often offer you a free item such as 2 liter of soda, free room of carpet cleaning, can of pringles, etc. They are normally casing your house to see what they can steal and a week later your house will be broken into. It normally happens frequently around Christmas and Tax season. Also if you live in a well off or middle class neighborhood that is building new houses…the construction crews will case houses and cars and break into them. Those are all things that happen frequently where I live. I have only let one salesperson in my house after checking his legitimacy with the company and I actually purchased something from him and the whole time he was there…he was afraid…because he was in a white owned house in the south and he was black. He was very polite and I tried to make him less scared but it did not help much. He went through the whole presentation regardless of how scared he was. I even got a hand written “thank you” letter from him a few weeks later.

If the later is true then you need to grow up and educate yourself.

    For starters blacks don’t hate whites. Most people come in here and believe that and almost all the white racist that do comment never once realize we are talking about racist and not whites in general. Most if not all of us have white friends, family, etc. So it is not this hate for white people. Most want to work with white people to come to some understanding and this is not just blacks but other people of color and a small group of white people want this is well. We all just want to be treated as individuals and not constantly be deemed “bad” simply because of the color of our skin. White racist always make up the we don’t like you because of ghettos, robberies, and crime statistics, then they forget that a lot of blacks do not live in the ghettos. A lot of blacks don’t commit crimes, a lot of blacks are not thugs etc. That is when those like us here realize it is just a mass production of excuses. They want to excuse their hate. Justify it for the masses. They practice divide and conquer to make people of color hate each other so they can continue individual racist tactics. The list could go on but for the sake of time lets stop here.

    My first instance of racism was a whites towards Asians and at the time I was too young to understand. I hated watching Asian women constantly subject themselves to white beauty standards. Was in my teen when I realize it was an issue with blacks as well.

    “To make them understand that blacks and whites are both nice, normal, good is not easy.”—I agree it is not easy, but I also realize that giving up is a cop-out. If you are a person of color do you want to be treated like crap constantly by white men and just write it off as “they were born that way.” No. No one wants that and where other groups once were silent about this; A new generation has been coming forth slowly fighting such injustices by racist whites.

    The police do a stellar job at arresting black perpetrators, especially when they admit they killed someone (like Zimmerman), so that people who like statistics can throw those numbers into black Americans faces and talk about crime because the police are on top of their jobs in the black community and those black criminals get arrested.

    In general, arrest rates for reported crime are lower in predominantly Black neighborhoods.. but speaking of statistics.

    A good example is when I went to a blog on whitewashing of films. Asians in the room were upset that asian characters were being made white. One guy was so bold as to say that yea and if I don’t agree with you all you Asians will say that I am racist. This is something I thought was only said about blacks. Which lead me to realize that anyone that does not agree with white people they assume they are A) racist or B) will assume that they are racist. This could be a result of them being called racist all the time but most white racist are so dense they don’t even realize why they are racist at all.

  610. Wow! I ran across this site by accident. I was amazed at the level of anger and hatred here. I realize that a lot of it may be justified as I do not know your situation.
    I am a white, Canadian female.There are good and bad in any race. I do not believe blacks are criminals, dumbers etc than whites.
    Race should not be a consideratiojn in the worth of an individual. Integrity, hard work, honesty, etc make up the worth of someone. There are many fine black leaders in the world, just as there are many good white leaders.
    Our children should be raised side by side, equal in every opportunity and right.
    Many whites, myself included have a high regard or low regard for people based on the individual. It is a little unrealistic and harsh to lump all whites or blacks together. It is racial discrimination either way.

    It is actually not about all whites, so no need to get all hyped up. It is actually referring to whites that act that way. It becomes tiring constantly putting “racist” whites in front of whites all the time so some people don’t do it and just put whites, but it is not referring to them all as some in here have white friends and family members.

  612. @ Sharina…believe it or not, there are many white Americans who have never heard of those men or any of the other successful Black people throughout history besides MLK.

    My husband had never heard of Dr. Charles Drew until I told him. I chalk it up to a lack of exposure in many cases. It seems that most white people don’t have to know much about Black history, but we have to learn all about theirs in school for the most part.

    I honestly feel that this lack of information is what causes the issues between blacks and whites. So many whites believe strongly that only whites have done things and accomplished things. It is sad but I think if the schools started teaching facts then this would possibly resolve a lot of issues.

  614. @ Ruth Kirby…I’m not sure who you think is being angry and hateful, but it seems your view is a bit simplistic and naive. I don’t mean that as a personal attack, so please don’t be offended.

    I am a woman of mixed race (black and white). My husband is white. And as Sharina pointed out, many of the other people of color on this website also have white friends and family members. But we tend to distinguish racist whites from the white people who take the time to understand where we’re coming from.

    As a Canadian, your perspective on racial issues might be slightly different from those of us in the United States. Racism is a problem in Canada as well, but most of us are talking about racism from our perspectives as people of color in America or the UK or wherever. And as a white woman, you might not understand what people of color have to deal with very often with regard to racial discrimination, among other issues.

    I agree with all of your statement about how there is good and bad in every race. I agree with the notion that race should not be a consideration in a person’s worth. It is wonderfully idealistic to see the world that way. But unfortunately, that isn’t reality. An honest character and a good work ethic are fine things to have and they will help a person to succeed…but skin color matters. Race matters.

    It shouldn’t, but it does. This is something many of us learn as children. As long as people continue to judge one another for superficial reasons, race will always be an issue. It is that elephant in the room which will never disappear. And while I don’t agree with those that insist on bashing all white people or declaring that all white people are evil racists, the truth is that many people have had painful experiences with white folks and it left them feeling like they can’t trust most white people.

    It sounds like you’re hinting at “reverse racism” with your last comment. The truth is that yes, some people of color are very angry and hurt and they have every right to be. No, it is not an excuse to be hateful and cruel…but you can’t expect people to be lovey-dovey when it comes to a subject like racism either. It is something that runs very deep, especially in America.

    I hope I wasn’t too harsh. I simply wanted to share my thoughts on what you had to say.

  615. Sorry to hear the plight of black people in America. The reality is that, thank god most black people live in Africa and the Carribean. Therefore they do not have to suffer from white man racism. We are the lucky ones.

  616. LMAO at Joe. Paraphrased from his statement:”If (white) America would just give black Americans trillions of dollars and send them back to Africa, america would be a better place!”

    Really, really? He didn’t see anything amiss with sending (literally) tens of millions of educated black people with (if they didn’t have them before, they’d surely have them *now*) chips on their shoulders and trillions of dollars in free cash, back to Africa? There are tens of thousands of university-trained black doctors, financial analysts, engineers, scientists, etc., living in Africa right now (who, in concert with the native degree holders, are doing their damndest to “modernise” countries such as Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa/Namibia among others.) Does it even make a lick of sense, to you, to send *even more* educated black people to the continent (where the very first thing that will pop into their heads is, “If we have to live here now, why the f*ck are we sending millions of tons of steal to Asia and Europe when we don’t have steel reinforced buildings of our own?”) I’m not even exaggerating on that point, as I have a cousin (engineer, retired) who spends six months out of every year teaching classes on modern metallurgy to students in central African countries (Nigeria is his personal favorite, but he’s visited the CAR and Rwanda as well.) Do you honestly think that your life will be *better* when politically adept black Americans start wandering through the continent and telling various Africans that, “This is what you’re fighting about, the right to be rejected by Americans and Europeans and Asians as soon as you become inconvenient. They won’t come here to fight us for fear of losing too many soldiers. They won’t use nuclear weapons against us for fear of losing our materials, our gold and our oil and our iron. We’re selling these things to non-Africans for pennies on the dollar, so that they can make their countries beautiful for even their poorest people as our “rich” people have to lead us into slavery and genocide to afford houses make of concrete. *Why* are we doing this to each other?”

    For reference, the above spiel was essentially said word for word by a Sudanese immigrant/refugee, who I met in my travels. He told me that his revelation re: non-African exploitation of African resources began on the day that he decided to get married. Prior to emigrating to Europe, he had worked for a decade in a Botswana gold mine (remember, refugees travel very far) and was paid about $5/ounce of mined gold (whether in dust or flakes) and $10/finger segment-sized nugget. When he worked the mine, he thought that he was being paid *well* (as there were mines within a day’s walk where the miners would be paid 1/2-1/5th of their salaries.) So, having an intimate relationship with gold measures, he assumed that a set of four wedding bands would cost him €100-150 at most (if fees for smelting and transport were included, plus a 100% markup for profit.). He walked into a jewelry store, picked out the richest/smallest bands available and asked the price. The jeweler told him €750. When he heard the cost, he remembered that the local black market/undercover gold melter (a family who would turn “stolen” gold into discreet bars) would only charge 50% of the amount of smuggled gold. The rings, rings that he could have bought for about $100 American in Botswana, were marked up by close to 1000%. On that day, he thought to himself, “If I, a man who didn’t learn to *read* until I was old enough to drink legally, could see that there was something wrong with the dealings here, then surely all of the black Americans who worked in the offices at my janitor’s job would figure it out *if they were forced to live the life that I had lived*.” He took another pull from his Stübbi and added, “If we, as black people, made the other people pay us the same way as they pay each other, we wouldn’t have all of the problems that we have. Instead, we spend our time talking about how much we don’t need or care about non-Africans with our mouths, while chasing them with our minds. Everything the European has, he puts online. We could make our own solar panels, our own factories, our own cars. We have the means at our fingertips, but we would rather chase a name brand and cosy up to the same people who treat us like dirt than to do things for ourselves.” Then he finished his beer and left…

    Oh my word… black people attempting to ‘work white people out’ makes for some great comedy. Where do I even begin…

    Well, how about I begin with the person who said ‘I truly believe Europeans will never join the global community’. Sorry, what? The only countries I can think of off the top of my head that have not ‘joined the global community’ are North Korea, Saudi Arabia & Iran (and I’m sure a few others, although it depends how you define ‘joining the global community’). North Korea in particular, is an isolationist state. Name some European countries that are isolationist… go on.

    If white people are so racist, why have they allowed mass non-white immigration into Western Europe for the past 50 years (particularly for the past 15 years)? Someone, please explain that to me.

    If white supremacists run the USA, why then in 1999 did NATO decide to bomb Yugoslavia, killing over 2000 innocent white people? I guarantee no one who reads what I just said knows ANYTHING about the decimation of Yugoslavia in 1999, at the hands of NATO.

    If white people are so evil, why are Africans literally risking their lives attempting to cross the Mediterranean on little wooden crafts, just so they can make it into Europe? They seek refuge amongst white people, so if white people are so evil, why do Africans choose Europe to seek refuge in, and not other African countries, or Arab/Asian countries for that matter?

    If white people are so evil, why do blacks always move into white neighbourhoods? Blacks move into white neighbourhoods, then the area goes downhill and whites start to move out. You never see white people moving into black neighbourhoods, only the other way around.

    If whites are so evil, why is this happening? If white people are so racist, why are they so generous when giving to charities which are collecting for BLACK people in desperate need of food & water when there’s a drought/famine in Africa?

    So many good questions… and all you’re going to do is either ignore them or say I’m talking bullshit. Haha… love it!😄

    Now, to prove you’re all REALLY against slavery, and not just a bunch of racists trying to justify their hatred of whites, I need to ask you – have you ever spoke of the history of the Arabs, and their enslavement of black Africans which was occurring ONE THOUSAND YEARS before the Atlantic slave trade was established? In all, the Arab enslavement of black Africans lasted over 1300 years. Do you have anything to say about that? Google ‘Arab enslavement black Africans’ to DESTROY your ignorance, racists.

    And now, current events – The enslavement of black Africans in Mauritania, at the hands of Berbers. What are YOU all doing to stop it? Don’t answer, I know what you’re doing… NOTHING. You’d rather moan & whine about white folk, post up some pictures of Malcolm X & other black revolutionaries on your blogs. LOL! How
