I think there are more 'thugs' in Detroit than neo nazi`s in all of America, maybe you should pay some more attention to those 'people'.

I mean i never saw some bald fat guys do 'the knockout game' or riot every time one of them gets shot by a cop.

Now let's hop over to Nazism. It's not a secret what the nazi f*cks did to jews in world war 2,I do think that everyone who supports Nazism should be thrown into prison since all people are equal.You can't claim that your life problems are connected to another gender or race and as such I think it's a horrible way of life to support the nazi way of thinking. However I'm also against how some anti-nazi people think. In the year 1988 a Swedish ice cream manufacturer made a ice cream with the name 88.




I understand you are mentioning this because the topic of the thread contains the subject of Nazism. But I really feel the need to throw some things out there.

It's not fair of you to simply say you believe people who support Nazism should be thrown in prison. Is it JUST Nazism, or the act of genocide in general? There are so many genocides (and I'm talking head chopping, blood curdling genocides) that have happened since the 1900s that were much more gruesome than the majority of Jews were killed. These genocides aren't come to light because they weren't on that insane 6+ million scale. I agree we should talk about what the Jews went through in WW2, but why don't people talk about or do research on those killed before WW2? It's getting tiring for me, and that's why I just don't take these threads seriously anymore. I cannot believe that people sincerely despise the act of genocide if they just point out what happened to the Jews time and time again. Genocide is not the face of Hitler alone. Shed some light on the other countries for once.

CR's General Discussion section is awfully... um... political today. Did the US do something stupid today aside from what's already wrong with the country?

Not in my country... But in pop culture... there's a lot of "racism" accusations being thrown around; like Katy Perry wearing a kimono is "racist" and "cultural appropriation". I just can't agree to that. Because I personally like wearing other countries' traditional clothes... it's because i appreciate those cultures' clothing, not because i think that's what they look like. So i think racism cops often think too far for their own good.

_______

When dark-skinned gay men complain about other gay men not liking "dark skin" as racism. I don't agree with this. Because it's their preferences if they prefer light-skinned people. You can't really change someone's preferences. It also bothers me, like unless you yourself have absolutely no restrictions when it comes to physical appearance, how can you criticise other people's restrictions?

I just feel like it's so hypocritical. Like if i call such a thing "racist"... it would make me a hypocrite. Considering i have my own preferences when it comes to physical appearances. I'm not going to sit here and cry about racism (of people's preferences of skin colour)... when I have my own shallowness to think about. :-/

I'm not even surprised with this. Racism is everywhere.

Problem is, if people do so it will be racist and Al Sharpton will get people to march with him. >_>

Well, I agree with you on the KP thing. That wasn't racist. Anyone who claimed that to be racist has no idea what actual racism is.

A lot gets made about black people "seeing racism everywhere," but, at least where I live, white people seem every bit as paranoid and insecure about race issues as blacks are.

My stepfather was a KKK member, so yep, racism still exists, especially in the American South. I can promise that without any question.


What nonsense. Saying "especially in the American South" - what, based on stereotypes of the South in general? Look, I've spent a long time in the South as a non-white. Has there been racism? Sometimes yes, mostly no. Generally from my experience the South has been one of the friendliest, nicest places to live, and I have traveled a lot both in N.America and outside of the States (globally) so I can honestly speak. The little racism I have experienced has been from ALL races (white, black, Latino, Asian...etc. etc.)

People have this constant, undying assumption that the South is still backwards and still "more" racist - that is not true.

The only difference is, the North - with its reputation of being ultra liberal and its Union-Side history - gets away with the racism by hiding beneath its "acceptance" and "open minded attitude" while the South gets stereotyped for being more religious and close minded/ its history with the Confederacy/Jim Crow laws.

There is racism everywhere, and from everybody. The North is not any less racist than the South though it loves to pretend to be, and people gobble up its lies like flies to a honey pot. The North just hides its racism better that's all.


Where in the South have you been? Having lived there my entire life I can definitely there is still work to be done regarding race issues, though some areas are noticeably further ahead/behind than others.

I do agree with you about the North. As much grief as the South gets for being behind the times, there are Northern areas that still have problems.

I've been to a load of places down South. Some examples would be Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi, Texas etc. etc...I've been to the big towns, the small towns, the little out-in-the-country-places...I've lived in the South as well.

Generally, I've had good experiences. Even if the people are simpler, they've usually been nice and friendly. Yes, I've had a few racist incidents but then again I've had some racist incidents in some places I've been to in the States and moreso outside of the States and Canada (namely Europe and Asia and especially the latter).

Anyway, to say more work has to be done in the South just doesn't work because I've seen for myself the same thing in the North and West Coast except minus the stereotypical Southern accent etc. Again, the "redneck-Confederate-Southerner" stereotype just gives the South a bad name and majority of the time you'll find people are nice. Even if a person is more ignorant, generally they're not truly bad people, just misinformed. Many times you'll find they're stereotyping you the way you're stereotyping them.

And if it truly is racism you're facing, the best thing I can say is you be the better person. You show them you're above that, and their pettiness will not bring you down. I've found in my experience, being polite and kind seems to grate on the racist person the most.

99% of the time, tumblr femnazis are full of shit. They continuously make mountains out of molehills and scream about sexism and racism over things that had nothing to do with that. I think it gives them something to live for.

That's what you get when you involve yourself in self-righteous teenage girls who diagnose themselves with illnesses looked up on Wikipedia.

I've noticed that a lot of African Americans and Hispanics seem to always say that they get stopped by the cops, because of racism. Even though they were clearly doing something st*pid.

Anyways, I'm a Nazi...



I'm kidding... Yea, I'm bored...
