    if you're saying that we need to look at the individual instead of looking at stereo types, then yeah i agree with you

    i agree with you
    i bitch about those hispanics that insistently refuse to learn english, but i agree that you can't say all mexicans act the same, hispanics in american jails/prisons outnumber the non-hispanic whites, but whites are tempted to use that as an excuse for racism, but the mexicans/latinos aren't all criminals, anymore so than you could say that all american blacks have the ghettoville gangster thug type mentality that's reffered to as "black american culture"

    Yea, that's my opinion in a nutshell. People often find it easier to believe the stereotypics than to try and learn where the stereotypics come from, and why.

    yeah, the steriotypes come from observations, but you can't treat people based on the stereo types, or even your own observations, you can't treat all black people bad because of having an experience of seeing 1 black guy being a ghettoville gangster thug, you can't listen to someone speaking spanish and assume that they can't speak english just because you've met hispanics that can't speak english, on the other side of that, a hispanic or black can't assume all white people are white supremisists just because they've met a Klansman

    I find it funny how one can support racism with a straight face when the concept of race in itself is ludicrous and laughable when dissected.

    Race is a social concept. If you put all the factors together that would separate people into groups, they all conflict with race. Things such as language, culture, religion, appearance, genetics, region, etc.

    Because nobody ever got worked up about other 'social' concepts either! :lol:
    Appearance is a pretty good correlate for race, which is in turn better than chance at predicting language, culture, religion. Doesn't seem that ludicrous a construct to me, though it does seem a little backwards to cling to it when better info becomes available...

    I was on a road trap to Florida last February and there was some rap/rnb radio station on talking about sterotypeds stuff and made me think that race.I always think about this in sports like basketball where most of the players on the team are black altough white people like to watch but if a black person goes to something like a nascar race,they will feel very out of place.

    Race is pretty much a classification made up of picked-and-chosen elements of other ways of classifying people to form a social concept people use to justify discrimination. :lol:

    I have no problem with race at all. I just despise those ghetto people. By ghetto people I do NOT mean black. You can be white or asian and be ghetto.

    Redneck = "Tom Brady", narrow minded, cant see past the end of the nose, stereo types, grasps at commonly percieved misnomers, sucks ass according to whos present, one sided view point but again waffles according to the atmosphere, spineless, cant stand alone, perpetuates chaos for no other purpose

    Race self hate can be a very problematic thing for those who face a strong minority to an overwhelming majority.
    I saw this video where they asked little black girls to identify which doll, black or white looked most like her. Then the person asked which doll she thought was prettier and the black girls picked the white dolls almost if not every time(i can't remember the exact numbers) Things like that really make me sad, as I have seen and heard a black girl I know say things just like that, and she really wants to be white....

    The only thing 'race' is good for is telling who your relatives are. And some of the advantages of those genes.

    Well said.

    The aura of this topic has come a very long way since its first few pages, which invoked the wonderful ideologies of eugenics and social Darwinism. Yeesh.
