Dude...
I thought my friend was bad.

Are you people missing all the racial stereoptyping in your threads.

"Its odvious you dont know any hispanic ( or as i like to call them "darker than white people but not quite as dark as black people people) because if you did than you would know what that meant"

I don't deny that it is a social construct....not a scientific one. But it DOES exist as a social construct. This society has drawn lines around its own people to describe them, and culture has sprung up along those lines....thus we have a "black culture" and a "hispanic culture" and a "white culture" (which are in reality many cultures....but are united because of the social distinctions that have been made in this country for years.)

I don't think black on white racism really compares to the history of white on black racism in this country.

This has been discussed already on this board extensively...

"Cracker" is a term that comes from the phrase "cracker of the whip" meaning someone is acting better than everyone else..."nigga" is a term used to dehumanize human beings and make them seem worthless.


There is a huge fucking difference.

i can't watch roots. it fuckin pisses me off. i feel so embarressed to be white when i do. but that is the way shit is. there has got to be someone comepletely fucking something up to rise from it. (hitting rock bottom). what sucks is that people were treated like animals. as a woman, i can say that these feelings of inferiority have branched off into other races and genders, and it sucks that women are getting raped, beaten and killed because of these ignorant feelings. i know this is going to sound psychotic, but honestly, the baby boomer generation has got to go. it's because of there "traditional" beliefs that we are stuck in this rut. it's the way they live their life and have raised there children. thank god for people like my rebellious mother that didn't listen to that bullshit her family told her. she passed that on to me and i love her for it. it's one of the best lessons she could have taught me. it makes me feel so hopeful that, maybe not all of it, but a big chunk of racism will be knocked out by the time we all raise our kids because of our beliefs. slowly but surely, right?

Chris Rock isn't always funny, but what he does is lampoon attitudes. If you ever catch more down-to-earth interviews with him, you see that a lot of his material sends his tongue so hard into his cheek it pokes through.
