Re: Are You a Racist?

tb4000 ·
While I do agree that being racist has more to do with the power someone can have over another, I also take into account the fact that I have associates that are latino, asian, and the like, and older family members do make stereotypical cracks about them, which I don't appreciate. In that sense, I would consider them racist remarks.

This statement is incorrect. According to research studies, most students who apply (and are accepted) into teacher education programs are White females. In fact, school systems across the country have and still are reporting a shortage in Black and Latino teachers, particularly Black male teachers. In response to this shortage, school systems have partnered with teacher education programs across the country in an effort to recruit more minority teachers. Please refer to the thread " Are...

When I've gone out with a white or non-black woman, I haven't noticed that as much. I chalk it up to my "racially-unclear" look. If I'm with a non-black woman, I don't think people assume right away that I'm black, but maybe Middle Eastern or Latino. When I went to Puerto Rico, I had a couple of American tourists try to ask me directions in Spanish... That was comical! It works the other way too.

hello no they don't work harder than me. but they have the big houses and many cars and trucks in the drive way while i see black folks standing around trying to hustle or going to the welfare office to get GR. they give welfare to everybody here that eligible men and women. so some black people would rather settle for GR which is only $250 monthly. and they brag about that mess. i'm not saying that no blacks work. its just disappointing to see so many that don't work here in LA.

I know what I'm talking about. The descriptions "Black" and "Negro" were used. Why? Affluent White, Asian, and Latino people in high positions have committed comparable crimes, why aren't their crimes attributed to their races?
