Racism Please read end give me your thoughts on this......?
you pass me on the road and sneer in my direction. You
callme "Whiteboy","Cracker", "Honkey", "Whitey", "Caveman" and that's ok But when I call you, ******, towelhead, sand-******, camel jockey, beaner, ****, or chink you call me a Racist. You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you, so why are the ghettoes the most dangerous place to live? You have the United ***** fund, You have Martin Luther King Day, You have Black History Month, You have Cesar Chavez Day, You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi, You have NACCP, You have BET If we have WET (white entertainment television) we'd be racists.
If we had White Pride day, you would call us racist.
If we had White History Month, we'd be racist.If we had an organization for only whites to "advance" our lives, we'd be racists.If we had a college fund that only gave white students scolarships, you'd know we'd be racist.
There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US, yet if there were "White Colleges" that would be racist
In the Million man March, u believed that u were marching for your race and rights If we marched for our rights and race You would call us racist
You r proud to be black, brown, yellow, and orange, and ur not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our white pride, you call us racist!!!
You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us,but when the white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist.
I am Proud, but u will call me a racist.
Why is it only whites can be racist??????
I didn't steal it it was sent to me as an e-mail so I DON"T want anyone to think I STOLE IT

Jesus dont some people love to use answers as a opportunity to show off there fine grammer and and condesend others? I agree with you mate, who gives a f**k about history or anything else, you dont sound rascist to me, and what you say is exactually how it is right here and right now. End of day you dont judge someone on there creed, religion or place of birth but equal rights for the white male, born and bred in his own country doesnt exist.They went that far redressing un-equal rights that did exist that now they aint equal anymore!

It is the strangest thing. I mean most of this is true. On the other hand you are also considered racist to point it out. So here is the problem. You have to take the high ground and somehow ignore how everything they are doing is ok but everything we say or do that would be a responce is wrong. They say well you don't know what it's like. Funny thing is in a way I do. I am only 26 and a white male. So I have been put down as being a white male. I have faced that form of reverse descrimination. I just live my life. I have a friend who is black and I never hear him talk about how rough things are because he is black. He is just another person. Maybe everyone else should try that!

Racism in any form is a double edged sword. The use of the word or inflection that is used has a lot to do with it. Also times have changed but many have not. For instance. I live in a large southern city. Here I am the minority. There are far more blacks here than whites and the Mexican population is huge as well. But being the minority isn't good enough to appease the blacks or Mexicans. (Many of the Mexicans don't even bother trying to learn English) While whites are out numbered, they still make the majority of the money in this city. Until they get off their duffs and learn that education is the key to getting those spinning rims and nice cars, there will always be tension.

What the white did to the indians and the africans ( the red , yellow and brown ) was horrendous ! That is why most black people live in the ghetto because they have never had enough money . The reason they have bet , black history month and etc ... is because if they didn't have it do you think that the white people would talk about it ? The reason we don't have wet is because we have millions of tv stations where you only see white people !!! Although racism is horrible and awful it's still going on today .Just think about it white people have never had it all that hard but the colored people were discriminated against and some of them still are .Source(s): I agree with Princess To my publicident : Mexicans come to this country and work there butt off and they expect nothing in return ! They work long hard hours for not too much money ! They come here and they don't speak english but when you go to another country you expect THEM to speak english ! Please ! Don't go talking about something you don't even know about!

I think what many people fail to understand is that, yes many horrible things were done to "minorities" by white people, but why should someone who had nothing to do with owning slaves, mistreating the chinese building the railroads, etc. etc. be punished for something they had no part in. I am a mix of four different cultures (two of those being white cultures). Racism is still very alive. When I walk down the street I can hear white people making ethnic slurs and saying things that they think are "stereotypes" to the "non-white" cultures I am a part of. The funny part about this is that I look enough white for the rascist blacks and mexicans still like to treat me badly for being white. I NEVER owned slaves. Just cuz Im part asian and mexican, which I never met my father, so I only know what I read in the history books about these two cultures, because the mexicans I knew growing up didnt consider 25% "enough" for them to be nice to me, and I didnt know any asian people growing up. The trick is for everyone to quit whining about it and just do your best. Regardless of scholastic opportunities and such, this IS still America, and EVERYONE here has an ENORMOUS amount of opportunities to succeed compared to other places. I used to hate my multi-cultural heritage, but now I embrace it, because all those people who like to make their little comments are only showing me that theyre not good people (making it MUCH easier to locate the good people out there making it even easier to choose the right people to be around). What I have learned from my experiences is that life resembles poker in many instances. You get a hand dealt to you when your born, but its not really the quality of your hand, its how you play it! So, minorities quit whining about how its so hard living in "white-america", and white people quit whining about how minorities get it all handed out to them. You have no idea what that person has been through, regardless of their looks.

I assume you are American. Although I know America to be a multi-cultural society it is still predominantly white. Why is this? Because the white man came from Europe and kicked out the indigenous people. It seems to me ethnic minorities have the stuff you mentioned in your question as a means to stay noticed in a country dominated and controlled by the white man.Source(s): I don't know I'm just a stupid white boy.

I'm half Black, white, and German but I hate the racist situation either way it goes. I would never call someone of another kind out or just simply be mean to them because it's just ridiculous. I really don't understand some people in this world.

I agree when it comes to the slanging matches however, I believe that the honour days and scholarships are well deserved, these people were supressed for a very long time and they have not been given the same rights to education, money etc, It's about time that they recieve everything we do..., you show a little ignorance and that's fine, we all do, but it's comments like yours that dont breal the cycle, they just keep racism alive and well, constantly circling round.

No Such ingredient a opposite racism. that's all racism. Very quickly the Caucasians, surprisingly in spite of if that's split by using gender, would be a minority and then affirmative action and civil perfect would be ineffective. there is purely no longer Jessie Jackson etc around wailing for justice. For me I appreciate each and every person till they tutor me that they ought to no longer be respected. If some one takes it as racist that's their concern no longer mine. If I dislike some one among my race no longer something is declared. enable me dislike some one among a different race i'm a Racist. THE HELL WITH THAT! perhaps this united states of america ought to die. we've lost all out individuality. human beings label and destructively criticize human beings for his or her recommendations no longer there strikes. each and every person should be politically superb. each and every person expects that no thoughts must be harm mutually as professing this many are bodily harm. we've become a rustic of psychological subjects no longer a rustic of heroes, leaders, achievers and proud voters. we've become wimps.

theres racism nearly everywhere around this world..more so in some,countries or states then others,,and yes..theres two side of the coin.although.what i feel is that:certain people or community has got this "paranoia"or "mentality"revolved around the "colonial past"where colonialism were done predominately.by the "white"race,which has reigned nearly all over around the world,and i feel that.....it;s time that people now turn the table over,although i guess ,it;s not a very good idea either.Co's we got leave the past behind.and not fussy about it.what;s over is over.no point moan about it,get paranoid abt it ot pay fire with fire,we just got get over it.for good,cos again..it takes two to claps,and there's 2 sides of the coin.where racism,bigotry and prejudices are concerned.about.these.people,,,,,,i don't care a damn about them!unless i am to think,the way they does,and care about what they have to think or say.guess it all starts from each of us.to make a difference,BY CHANGING OUR OWN WORLD ,first,
