Well, they can stay but they'd be downgraded to immigrant status. That means they can't complain about whatever system they're in or get deported if need be. Whatever the social justice issues are, it would be that respective country's burden.

 

uhhh so how "pure" does one need to be in order to be counted as a full person in your utopian society?  jw since there are millions of Americans that would likely not be so easily labeled as either black or white.

So when people say things like "Black people don't value education", we should give it serious thought...

 

do all black people devalue education? clearly they don't. some do. just like any other race that has people who strive and others no so much.

If anything it's absolute proof that race isn't a factor. Economics matter, but they're a result of cultural standards of family unity and educational achievement.

 

If this society was so abhorrently racist as is being claimed, it'd be racist to all non-whites. The simple yet uncomfortable truth is that minorities who come here and bust their ass and sacrifice their life so their kids can have a chance at a better one get out of the cycle of poverty much more successfully than those who have kids out of wedlock and listen to excuses about a corrupt system holding them back.

Dude, people don't hate you because you are black. It is because you are an idiot.

Carry on

I think its a sign of progress that now we have tinderbox posters that basically go around responding to certain peoples posts to poo talk that individual in a way unrelated to the thread or post in question.

Please child...

 

The only schtick you have is....

 

White man is evil.

 

Evey thing bad happing to black man is white man's fault.

 

Carry on....you are not even worth the effort or time.  You are a lost cause.  I just hope you don't pass on the same pity complex and lack of accountability to your kids.  Otherwise, they are in for the same poo life as yours.

Didn't read any of the other posts so I am not familiar with the convo.

 

But, racism in America is not about the racist. It is about the person being accosted.  It is similar psychological terms like confirmation bias that we all share. It is not about the color of the racist. Often and especially here conversations devolve into whites feeling the need to argue that they are in fact not racist or they don't know any racists, or have never seen it. They use this argument to claim that it must not exist. However this is a seriously flawed way of thinking, and it ignores that simple truth that only the victim experiences the crime. It is not for the rest of society to say that all is well and a person slighted has no complaint. A fair, reasonable, just and empathetic mind would be inclined to consider the possibility that there really is something going on that needs to be addressed

Just curious but if you haven't read any of the other posts, where is the bolded part coming from?

 

It's pretty easy to tell by people's posts whether or not they are racist (although that too has been accused and debated on here) but I don't know who is saying they don't know racists or have never seen it.  

 

I know some real life racists and have definitely seen it... a lot,both the subtle brand of racism with veiled comments and the open out-right hostile behavior kind.

I was simply stating that while some people may feel that racism is dead, their opinion is not as important as the people that feel that they are being treated with racial bias.

OK, I get what you're saying, but who has been saying racism is dead.

 

Overall I think it's better in a general sense than years past, but it definitely still goes on.

 

There will always be racists and assholes.

I could name several but I don't feel like doing the research of previous threads. But in my experience that's what always happens.
