i have worked along side of black people for a long time. truly can i say that only a small handful as 1 in 50 have shown me that they do care about me as a white person. i wasn't raised with blacks and this was a shock to me as i found myself in the deep south in the workforce. i come from rural iowa and we treat people with respect.i soon learned that black people look at me and just think racist without finding my true heart

Many of us if we dont know you, we'll just assume that you are a racist. Me personally I have been racist situations with whites and these situations usually take place in neighborhoods that are predominantly white. The best thing to do is just be friendly eventually they will look past whatever racist thoughts they may have you.

Well, I guess this gives you the chance to see the world through the eyes of the minority.

lol welcome to the south! It goes both ways and unfortunately its like that here. Try to act like u normally would, and be urself. Dont try to make urself friendlier just to not seem like a racist white. If the ppl are real, they'll like u if not then u dont want them around neways.

The person is like me, coming from another state and moving to the south. I am nice to people at work but have found that blacks automatically assume all whites are racists. I think the blacks I work with are the ones who are the racists and prejudge people. I say "hi" to people and they look right past me. This happened on my first day of work. If I wasn't a racist before, I can see myself slowly becoming one. I am white and in the minority at work. I get dumped on because I have skills that my co-workers don't have. I work hard, don't call in sick all the time, am respectful of everyone. I can't say the same about my black co-workers. The women seem much worse than the men. They have a huge chip on their shoulder. I hate living in the south because this isn't what I am use to. Where I came from, blacks and whites at work were nicer to each other. The southern blacks I know are lazy and pretty useless at work. There are exceptions but not many.

The best thing I have found to do is to just ignore them. I gave up on trying to be nice because it doesn't work. The only time a black person speaks to me is if they need help with something or can't figure something out then suddenly, I am their new best friend.

I came from Asia where our parents taught us how to have a good work ethics and honesty. I had a degree in Computer Information System where I usually worked with mostly white people. I never worked with black people before until now in Louisiana. I learned most of them are more racist towards Asians. The are the hardest and pathetic people to work with. Lazy, lying too much, even food in the refrigerator that is not belong to them they steal, they don't care about people's feelings, racist to Asians. They are sucks to work with.

haha,.. I lived in Houston for 5 years, and that was the first time i heard of people stealing other people's food, but where I worked I believe it was white people doing the stealing. Still I never heard of that before living in the south.
There's also a terrible relationship between blacks and asians in Houston. I personally will not do any business with asians in the Houston area because you just can't trust that they're not going to try to screw you in some way, because of the hatred between the too groups. But I also met many cool asians while living in Houston - just wanted to throw that out there.

I am black and moved to the south (Virginia) 4 years ago. I know Virginia isn't that far south, but I think the problem is with the former slave states. I see a distinct difference between northern blacks and southern blacks. From what I've seen southern blacks are lazier and they complain. I've never seen such complaining before. I'll be the first one to admit discrimination still exists in America. Whites and Asians have a lot of made-up reasons to discriminate instead of judging each individual separately. One thing southern blacks can do to help is to try not to provide real reasons for Whites or Asians to discriminate.

I just reread my post and I should have used the word lazy. Not lazier. It looks like I'm calling northern blacks lazy and southern blacks lazier. That's certainly racist. I'm just saying in general the work ethic of southern blacks is lacking in comparison to those from northern states.

I'm white,male 53 yrs. old and was raised and lived in all black neighborhood during the 60's-90's when white flight was the fad during the late 60's.I've always tried to be open minded and judge people on a person by person basis and yes i probably have races feelings towards some blacks most of the time,this i won't deny,but these feelings are anchored from my own true experiences,but i've seen too much not to say that the issues whites experience working and living around blacks is cultural in nature,it is cultural by choice of most blacks.They don't take their jobs serious enough until their about lose them and blame whitey if you complain to boss,theft,horseplay and shucking and jivin' is commonplace at work.I've noticed the younger white generation model the slothfulness of black culture and think it's cool to wear their pants down ,poopy-pant style and listen to that crap called rap they call music,but they need to stand their ground and try to be proud of their own race and support their own culture because it has been damaged badly and needs to be nurtured back from the brink.Black women are the real problem as i see it,they allow younger black children to carry on with the same base behavior that has plagued their race from the onset of slavery.They hate white men generally because they blame their pathetic situation on white males and laugh at and mock white women and berate them if they feel white women appear threatening.I don't think race relations have truly gotten any better since the 1960's,yes some will deny this but the proof is in the pudding.

Most black people do think that way but not all. I know this a late response but sorry for the bad encounters you had and will face. There are a lot of blacks that care about all races!

I'm a 42 year old college educated white male. I absolutely do not like Black people.
I hate working with blacks. They constantly try to annoy white people by doing and saying things to push buttons with the white people they work around.
I swear I wish there was a virus or disease that would kill off the entire black race. Imagine how wonderful the world would be without any blacks. Just imagine how productive, how little crime there would be.
Please someone invent a deadly virus that will wipe the black race off the face of the Earth.
Thank you!

That's not nice Marky. We need to kill the whities because they are the ones who have this country (Amerikkka) in the recession that we are currently in. White people are the biggest crime commiters there are. Stealing from the poor and middle class people just to continue to feed their rich habits (living in pent houses, mansions, drivivg expensive cars for themselves and buying expensive cars for each of their idiotic famaly members including lil billy that's 3 years old which they clearly cannot afford) but thanks to the american working class (yes that's including us blacks)you get to steal and commit forgery and larceny then expect us to bail your stupid ignorant pasty white asses out of trouble. Hell! you steal from your own companies then screw and cry for the polititians to make us come up with the money to pay for your GREED. Please someone invent multiple deadly plagues of diseases to kill all whites so this can be a better world and the crime rate will decrease dramatically, no scratch that- will decrease instantly... The End!!

Want to hear a funny joke someone told me?

Why do men talk to women?

Because they have c*nts.

It is all about the basics.

The last black person to work in my department got fired and he's the only black person. He ended up blowing the engine on one of the vehicles and fighting with another co-worker (Puerto Rican) in the office fist fighting so my supervisor installed a webcam on his computer so when he was at another location he could watch what was going on.

The same black person got reported to HR for sexual harassment, licking his lips and eying this girl up as she was walking past him in the hallway.

Cause way too many problems.

I worked with black people, they are no problem to work with, everytime I worked with them, they usually try to make the other coworkers feel very "welcome." that is if they are majority and you are a good worker. You know, there is always exceptions to the rule of every race. But the majority, very easy to work and very good bullshit detetector, good boundries. You know, so to keep good boundries, they make the work enviorment better too. A lot of people reading this may think I am some bullchitting "liberal" or something, trying to pretend not to be racist or something. Maybe if the black is THE one in charge and it's a black majority place then they all might stick together? But I had black majority and black supervisors and they were all fair.

I am not "haive" I am just being fair and reporting my *experiences* even if they are not well elaborated on here. And seems somewhat insincere, show I should go further rather than just making vague statements but blacks are generally very fair to work with. But some of those "Labor Ready" types might be bad or useless. I am tired tonight and not in the mood for

I think most of these posts are just jewish trolls, and they are not very amusing. Jews just hate free thinking thought.

I came onto this board, because it was one of the 1st results on google when I searched for something.

I know you don't need patronizing advice, but being that this forum generates so many top google results yall could be a real intellectual force here, if you stick together and utilize together instead of all these divisese and petty threads. But rather just come up with solutions.

Remember there are 3 levels of discussion:

Ideas, things and people.

I know you do not need the whites to tell you how to do it, but remember the jews are only here to deliberately break you up from doing it. Just ignore the little people, and focus on ideas. I have to discuss jews in my posts, because it is like getting the weeds out of the way while looking for the gold? But I shouldn't focus on the weeds so much EITHER (myself)

I am imitating partially how I think a fast talking liberal idiot sounds, or but I will go to sleep and work on some more ideas I may not share with you.

But at least I attempt to be a gracious guest since I am using your forum. You should not expect many to do so, but cannot expect all automatically won't. But always call those on it that do not. Which I know you do. I know how incredibly patronizing that last one sounded - but not all whites are "ungracious guests" and may naturally dislike them, but should of course always call the whites on it who are not.

Jews are naturally no ones "gracious guests" as the historical record proves.
