the core of your argument is that they system is built to prevent the masses from thinking rationally

key word there is "masses" which includes those of all races

again, twinkledrinker said it...it works both ways. They system doesn't want the minorties thinking straight either

systematic racism breeds "race hatred" which with time, becomes systematic itself

Yes and no. Reread sequence's response. He's way more eloquent then I am and brings up stuff that I don't.

What do you mean by white people?

"White people" are not a race.

How come this doesn't seem to be as big of a problem in the rest of the world as it is here in America?

yes, but I never said that black on white and white on black were the same

just that one has resulted from the other and eventually became not just as systematic...but systematic nonetheless

I would agree with this.

Though I still think the distinction between "racism" and "race hatred" is an important one if just for the sake of understanding the situation.

To say that the REAL problem is class and not race is a ridiculous concept.

As someone who's been raised a poor white boy, I can say that if I ever told blacks I knew growing up (<intentionally avoiding the "I have a black friend" syndrom) that really, they weren't being treated any worse than me since we were both poor, I'd get the shit beat out of me.

Race is NOT a way of avoiding discussing class conflict. the issues with race in this country are pervasive. As a poor white boy, I would never claim that I had it harder (with subjects regarding predjudice) than a black man of ANY income. Because regardless of MY income level, and regardless of THEIR income level, they still can't call a cab in NYC.

Do we define race here based strictly on physical characteristics?

Race is a social construct...so yes, as a general rule.

I didnt read anyone elses posts because I think most of you are really very smart people, really. That being said sarcastically... Here is my thing...


You can't fucking say that. haha.
Minorities have been given a beautiful gift... they have been fucked over consistently by white people... They can either perpetuate this by shooting the racism back, or they can transcend it in a christ-like manner. If they turn the other cheek, history is on their side... white people have no unity, it's all theoretical... blacks have a unifying power based solely on the fact that they have been fucked with...

In the long run, white people will slowly fade away with tears and real apologies as we collectively become more intelligent and filled with true empathy while the minorities, strong through the fight, take over the world, and rightly so... we have yet to pay for our evil deeds... and if the minorities empower themselves intellectually and transcend racism altogether, our day of apologizing for real will come.

But, that will never happen unless they collectively laugh and utterly mock the entire notion of disliking someone based on their race for any reason.

Racism and race hating is a retarded distinction. That's the same as me saying I like peanut butter and jelly sandwhiches, but jelly and peanut butter sandwhiches are nasty.

As long as you, or anyone else allows this "distinction", racism will never end... and us whiteys will win. In fact, to perpetuate this distinction is beneficial to every white bastard on earth... so keep it up baby! We love ya!

Thats exactly the attitude that prevails in this country, and its the exact attitude that results in the rift in our society growing larger.
