Found an interesting video on YouTube with some interesting comments too.


Here is the link:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OR2DjKYf8uA

My Turn:

From what I am getting at, the Hispanic woman cut in front of the line and some other woman started making racial comments. Either way I feel like both are in the wrong.

Matey, there's always gonna be the bad fruit on the tree, it's our job to ignore them or discard them completely. Opinions are fine, but opinions that hurt others aren't fine. I think racism will always be around, but there's gonna be changes made to stop it soon enough or we will end up living in a disgusting world. You shouldn't worry about it, I don't to be honest. There's not much anyone can do about racist people apart from locking them up.

Racism will never end so long as humanity still exists. That's really all there is to it.

Racism won't die unless humanity dies out. I mean you can't be racist towards someone if there isn't someone to be racist to.

In all honesty, I was just responding to the title of your thread. But I just did, and honestly, a lot of the times these sort of videos typically cut out what started the drama in the first place. Which in turn makes the victim look like they're completely innocent. Now, I don't agree with what the old bag said about telling her to return to where she belongs. If that's not racism, I don't know what is. Although yes, it does seem like they might have possibly cut everybody else w/ something favoring them to do so (which from the content of the video, you can't really make out what that "something" is). So yeah, with the video being pretty damn vague, both could very well be in the wrong.

However, my original statement still stands. Racism will most certainly never end until humanity ceases to exist. You just got to learn to live w/ it and ignore it.

That lady was pretty old and crotchety. Maybe she had bad hemorrhoids or something that day.

Yeah. Get rid of humanity then you get rid of racism.

I felt like both are in the wrong from watching the video.

So basically what I get from this video is if anyone every says anything it will likely end up somewhere on the internet. That was rather painful to watch, especially when she was trying to get everyone else in the line to join in on her rant. As someone who has studied some of the social sciences this video did not surprise me. Racism has been inherent for thousands of years in history and is a natural human reaction to "others" especially when a group is feeling threatened. You would either have to create a utopia of peace and happiness or super harsh totalitarian opinion controlling state before racism/classism/xenophobia etc go away.

One day in the not so distant future, you will be able to color your skin any color you want. For a price of course.

The 'acceptable' targets of racism may change, if not the racism itself. For instance it's much rarer nowadays to hear someone going off on a rant about the Irish, the Polish, the Germans, etc. If there had been a few more people with darker skin tones in that line, that lady may have been a bit more hesitant to lay into that other lady's race.

Dude. I understand but dude, seriously? So much of humanity is beautiful, it'd be a shame to lose it all in one blow. Things may not change, but that doesn't mean everyone should die for only the small amount of racists on this planet. Like, I ain't believing what you said, humans are gorgeous. We got a embrace our intelligence and use it to protect this planet. We can't just leave now after all we've done. Uhh...sorry ye? Got a little carried away...
