wow, tone down your wording hehe, that statement can be read as you being racist. NO i am not accusing you being a racist, you just have some predjudist view.


There is nothing racist or prejudiced. White privilege is a well-documented phenomena in the West. Despite what some have misconstrued the term to mean, it does not mean that all white people are rich, or that no white people experience racism. It means that, because of the current racial and political system, the people who run the country, the corporations, and the media are predominantly white, and therefore there is an imbalance in power between the races, both culturally and politically. Other races end up getting marginalized. In movies and television, non-white characters are pushed into a number of rigid stereotypes. White actors don't need to worry about being cast as ethnic stereotypes, because our culture views white as kind of the default race. Another symptom of white privilege is the relative certainty that I, a white male, can expect to not receive any racist comments, or be attacked because of my race. This is not prejudice, it is what was taught in the first unbiased anthropology class I went to in college.


umm thats what defined as prejudict and racist


What, you mean stating the facts as they are, rather than as we wish them to be? I mean, I wish I could say "tralala, we have perfect true racial equality in our society, institutional racism is a thing of the past, the media is owned equally by people of all races, nonwhites don't get any more crap about their race than whites do, lemon drops and strawberry pocky for everyone, wheee!" But unfortunately our society still has a long way to go in terms of true racial equality.

Yea.. well.. sort of.
When people see me they think i am Spanish or Mexican and later on end up calling me a beaner later on..
I only look a bit spanish because of my filipino dark-ish complexion and my white face structure. I keep telling people not to call me stuff like that but it keep on going. I ignore it of course but its annoying when people think i am mexican and tell me to hop over a fence because i am not and they shouldnt even be stereotyping mexicans in the first place. well, anywhere, there are people who stereotype and are racist, just cant escape it.

people shouldnt judge a whole group of people because of one or two's doing ya know
and
once a black girl told me i didnt know anything cuz im white @_@ i really dont think having different skin colors makes us different from inside were the same @_@

How the hell is that racist? I have a feeling that you are unable to comprehend the posts, thus thinking it's racist.

It's not even 1% racist.

LOL, please re-read my post, i never said that was racist view, i just said that some people can read that and say it was pure racist. also if you are going to say it is perfectly ok for minorities to be casted in stereotypes, promoting white privileges and to accept the "social norm" as he stated i think thats more than 1% racist. again i am not saying he is racist, read my quote above.

it used to be black people who had it the worst but nowadays it seems to be asian, i see it alot at school and it realy does suck so i can see you must have a realy hard time from ignorant idiots. i respect asian people alot because they do have to put up with alot and it realy does not help when the media sterotypes.
im not black, white or asian.... im a mongrel (and proud) >_< lolz i get abit of crap but its always going to be from idiots so i dont let it get to mi.
all discrimination is bad in my opinion.
