    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 s---. 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---ing serious Timmy about the escorts? You’re going to get your a--- 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--- 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 a------ to her. And this woman would pass for her mid 30s and is a great f---. 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 k--- 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

    I've been beaten to a pulp by some skinheads for being brown/looking Muslim in the wake of a terrorist attack. It's the only racist thing that I can remember happening to me (apart from classroom jokes about terrorism, which was just banter and I gave as good as I got) in 25 years. If anything I may have been helped by affirmative action. I was accepted onto a MA course where I had worse undergrad marks than anyone else there, and also less knowledge of the topic and less of a work ethic. I was the only non-white guy out of 20 people on the course, ticking that "mixed" box may have swung it in my favour idk. The only kid who was as non-neeky as me was white, but on a full scholarship and from like a proper deprived area. So it wouldn't surprise me if we both got boosted over middle class white guys with better marks. It strikes me as kind of unfair, but I guess this is normal procedure everywhere in Europe and the USA.

    fair but i don't think elementary & high school bullying means much in terms of racism because kids are savage with anyone who stands out and is in the minority. The real world begins after high school

    Not that it’s a competition but South Africa was and still is the most racist country in the world.
