I've been reading through this forum for a while now and many of the questions are redundant (i.e. do white, India, Mexican, Asian women like black guys..) and I'm tired of reading them.

Nevertheless, something has been been bothering me and that is the double standard when it comes to racism against black people.

When an African American does something positive and lets say he/she is mixed then (which by the way some of the darkest African Americans are mixed)we find ways to accredit their accomplishments to the white aspect of that mixed person. Nevertheless, if he does something negative - the same mixed guy/girl then we call that person the 'N' word and accuse a whole race for what one person does? Isn't that a double standard?

I've been to a few websites that make black people out to be the worst humans on this planet but the reality is - they sound like racist pigs that feed off of the uninformed angry common person who has anger issues based on color. I'm really having a hard time with understanding the racism.

sad but true,
it really doesn't make a difference what your or mines are
there will always be some bigotry in one form or another
even in their own culture
toooo, many pea brains, with little neurons
have a need to be a BULLY,
bigots, need the illusion of grandeur,
more sophisticated
to feel more important
more smarter
because of nationality
they think more educated
inflated egos
because of materials they have
because they have more manners
because their afraid
envious
ETC
bigots need to have self worth, they don't have
need to feel important
need to impress
wants other to be jealous of them
these bigots are pathetic,
don't worry, about them, their days are filled with exaustion, trying to keep up APPEARANCES

Its mind boggling to say the least. I just find it interesting that how if a black person is pretty/handsome they have to be mixed. If a black person does something good he/she must be mixed even though they may not have mixed genes. Needless to say, if a mixed person does something wrong then they are 100% black/African American.

I find it again most interesting that so many threads have been founded on African Americans it mortifying. There seems to always be a racist in the building even on subjects that has no interest invested in racist rhetoric.

I was thinking after visiting a racist website having gone through some turmoil. I saw some statistics so I decided to do the research for myself because I do realize their (site owners)investment is the rhetoric be it truth or lies and the returns is in the recruitment. They read falsified information in statistics and they convert those messages into places such as these. Example: Rape - they say black people rape white women but when I did the research I found that 90% of all rap cases happen within their own race. Black males raped white women at 3% but even more shocking is that white males rape black women at 4% which is a percent higher.

That was the camel that broke my back. So now when I go to places I catch blatant racism easier then I would have just a few months ago. Nevertheless, as you stated - there will always be bigots yet I think that the bigots is what make races look weak and I'm suggesting the bigots race.

With that being said I would love to see better topics then do white women like black men or any other women from any other ethnic group.

I don't understand why everything always has to be black or white.
I was watching television, and i noticed that there is a show that is going to celebrate black women.
Now there's nothing wrong with that,except why can't they just celebrate women in general?
If white women had a television show airing to celebrate white women,they would be called racist....why is it a double standard for black women?
I don't understand why people can't just be referred to as people.
This is how i view the human race:
First lets look at cats. There are many different breeds of cats. But when it all comes down to it, a cat is a cat.
Now let's look at....oh let's say butterflies. There are many different species of butterflies, but when it all comes down to it, a butterfly is a butterfly.
Ok,let's look at dogs....once again,many different breeds,sizes,colors,,,,,,but a dog is a dog. I know people who single out different breeds because they think they're violent, or bad dogs,but we all know that any dog has the potential to be good or bad dog....it all depends on the owner,and how the dog is raised. But when it all comes down to it, a dog is a dog.
Now,let's look at people! We come in all shapes,sizes,colors.....but when it all comes down to it,a person is a person.if people are bad or ill minded,it's not their fault.it's all how they are raised....can we quit blaming races and just start blaming people?
