Costa Ricans Are Racists, Recent Study Reveals

Yes, it is. I went on vacation there with a latin friend and I got the stare downs when eating at any restaurant. We hit some night clubs in the capitol, and some patrons even were laughing at me or looked bewildered.  (Jan 8, 2012 | post #10)

"The Navy" The worst thing you can do to yourself

I retired after 20 years, and it was the best thing I ever did. It had its ups and down, but that pension is a life saver in this economy. Now I am a full time student using the MGI-BILL which along with my pension ensures I am not overly stressed during this recession. So I am grateful.  (Jan 8, 2012 | post #2604)

Is it time to impeach Obama?

If America didn't impeach bush, they definately cannot find reason to impeach Obama who took the crappy passdown from him in January.  (Jul 29, 2009 | post #214)

Have You Seen The Crystal Blue Eyed Black Boy? (Photos)

Blue eyes are the result of genetic MUTATIONS and not based on ethnicity. I saw and researched this a looonnng time ago. Blue eyes are not natural eye colorings. That is why pure blue eyes in any race are rare.  (Jul 29, 2009 | post #12)

Believing In Our Own Black Stereotypes

I guess I am a little ashamed of this but wanted to discuss it. This has happened twice to me. I had to work a night shift and as I was leaving another black guy was outside my apartment door smoking. I noticed how he sort of strained to look through my door into my apartment and I kept having thoughts of him taking the opportunity of my absence to rob me. Again this has occurred before but with a different guy. It stayed with me on the drive to work and I suddenly recalled how I once had a white neighbor who would smoke outside. The former white neighbor would notice I left for work, but I never got the feeling he would take advantage and rob me. Horrible, I know. I guess I am ashamed of the thoughts, and prepared to be roasted for them. Just sharing.  (May 15, 2009 | post #1)

Saudis Order 40 Lashes For Elderly Woman For Mingling

Perhaps Muslim men wouldn't be so sleazy if they followed Islam. Raping non-muslim women, desiring to conquer non-Islamic countries and take the women as slaves, venerating a MAN who had a sexual relationship with a small child, exonerating muslim men if they honour kill a female relative for disobeying or being forcibly raped, etc...  (Mar 10, 2009 | post #86)

You guys just don't get it. Islam is the religion of peace. Islam is the way of the future. Islam isn't barbaric. Islam is the golden light. I hope you all know sarcasm when you read it.  (Mar 9, 2009 | post #36)

Islam Grows Into A Strong Presence In America

Religion was created by nature to control the human growth populace. The Crusades, The Witch trials, Indian Hindu vs Muslim, English Protestant vs Catholic, Jew vs Muslim, Shia Muslim vs Sunni Muslim, etc...etc... I can hear the machine guns, suicide bomb booms, shrill religious cries as a beheading takes place...Ahhh religion.  (Mar 7, 2009 | post #955)

I hate being black

You all don't know how long I have had the growing resentment of my own race building up. In the early 90's, I was optimistic. Now I truly think our race is lost. What have we done in the last 20 years? The last 10? The last 5? Yes, we have a Black president, but what about the general Black population? If you don't get me, hear is something to think about. Why is it in the U.S. a common stereotype that Asians are good at math/science/computers, Whites good at business/finance/politics, Hispanics good at handy work/agriculture/willingness for low paying jobs, and Black are villified in general as criminals/ghetto/unintelligent? To every stereotype there is a grain of truth with statistics. This is what Bill Cosby was trying to get at. We have got to stop being ashamed to confront our damn shortcomings and do something about it in GENERAL. No race is perfect, but DAMN!!! We consistently show up at the bottom of every good statistic and excel at every horrible social one. I know if there is such as thing as reincarnation, I better not come back as a black man. I have worked since I was 16, served/retired from the military, got my degree, and now do adult social work. I have paid my dues!!! God/Buddha/Allah/Shiva you better not send me back in a shell like this one!!!  (Mar 7, 2009 | post #320)

Dominican friend Marries AA. Intermarriage?

If that person is from the DR originally, I would say it is intermarriage. I have been to the DR many times (the capital, Puerto Cana, Santiago) and they are ethnically and culturally different. I don't understand what is so hard about that. If the guy is American-Dominican, I am not really surprised. Yet, on the island you will find that colorism more than race is a big social factor unless you are pure white. I experienced it myself when I visited, and it was like being kicked back to civil rights age. A Mexican-American friend and I went to a bar and it wasn't until they heard my American accent that I gained entry. My brown skin made them think I came from the lower stratos of their society. Santiago was worse because it was the way the locals looked at me when we walked in the nicer areas!  (Mar 7, 2009 | post #18)
