You hang around on this black site say you do not have any sense. You say one thing and do another. You say you hate blacks but hang around daily where you know there will be blacks. You are very confused person. What do I expect out of a brain damage person like you.

I think more african americans are becoming racist.And hte low class white's are also becoming racist due to resentment. So I have observed it in both groups.

Hellywood had a very valid point. In canada they have something similiar a friend of mine had excellent grades and a profile and he felt he was marginalized because have a quota to meet of ethnic minorities for medical school. He aced everything in all senses. 4.0GPA MULTILINGUAL,started his own nonprofit you name it .He was annoyed by it.So he went to the US study.If we as a society want to end racism, We should stop with special treatments of different groups. Only in the western world do we let those least qualified get the job due to the race card.Frankly there should not be a race. It should be on qualifications. Believe me things would run alot better if it was based on qualifications not on a minority quota. Anybody would get the job based on skills not on skin. A big problem in North America.

It is very similar.

Todays definition of a racist is "anyone who wins an arguement with a liberal is a racist".

I live in the liberal bay area.

No, I don't see any rise in racial prejudice. It's out there, but here race prejudice is publicly frowned on. People ABHOR it here and when the opportunity arises we'll snuff it out.

That's how we roll!

Racism is everywhere! It is unfortunate!

Racism is wrong and should not be excused.

There is no acceptable reasons for it. It is practiced only by losers and ignorant people!

If people in the world learn about other cultures and ethnic groups in the world and try to understand the differences, the world would be better.

Unfortunately, some people do not. They just try to promote unjustifiable misunderstanding, hatred and prejudice against people in other countries, even in tragic moments. That is mean and low.

See the following post:

http://www.topix.com/forum/world/south-korea/...

Is it not racism when some Taiwanese feel so happy in the tragic moment after the South Korean ferry sank?

Also read the comment posted by a Japanese. He tries to justify the behavior of the Taiwanese.

I hope stupid people such as the Taiwanese TV hosts and the Japanese respect others and deal with other people with sympathy and empathy!
