    My Hispanic American friend says he wants to leave the U.S because of the racism. He’s from Texas and says he gets called something racist every even though he’s pretty whitewashed

    is it actually that bad and common?

    I’m white so I can’t speak for other races, but I do know whites in California, depending on area are not as progressive as San Francisco and LA leads you to believe

    i don't know how common it is, but it definitely happens and I've experienced it in the past. i think racial discrimination is more subtle more often than not. however, sometimes people can be blatant about it. for example, many escorts won't see black men. this is a very common occurrence

    Not so much anymore do I see racism in my area. Now in the early 2000s until like 06 it was pretty bad. And high school we had a few Muslims in our class who moved here. Once the one girls parents let her dress normal, she was actually a cute girl. Nice tan to her and shit. I went to a prep school though. I’m sure it’s more racist in some of the other more public like schools. Some of my good friends are actually black, and you can tell who the red necks are because they won’t say much of a word to me, once they see me hanging out with them. Those are just the old timers people. No one my age sees anything wrong with it.

    Are you f--king serious Timmy about the escorts? You’re going to get your ass in a sting messing around like that. And eventually you’re going to be robbed when walking into the hotel room they want you to. Because it’s not like you can call the cops on someone when you admitted to paying some hooker. Just find a woman or a attractive milf that wants to f--k only and not be in a relationship. It’s really not hard man. I met this woman last winter and she’s a physical fitness trainer. We started texting some and eventually she broke down and said you won’t judge me if I ask you something and you’re open minded? I said I’m down for anything and she said she wanted sex. Her husband is an asshole to her. And this woman would pass for her mid 30s and is a great f--k. I started working 2nd shift now too so if I really wanna bust a nut I can go to her house during the day. I just don’t want to be a marriage wrecker because she has a daughter that just went to college and a young son. So I feel a little guilty for it.

    Only in America could a white guy kill a black kid for no reason and then turn around and try to sue the black kids family for 100 million in damages. So yea that’s just my perspective as a white dude
