    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

    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.

    I'm not even gonna read anybody else's posts

    I grew up in a weird time in america
    My mom is closet racist cause of her dad
    My brother who is 4 years younger than me somehow even ended up closet racist

    I lived in a Chicago suburb until I was about 7
    My entire classes were filled with black and brown students and I never thought anything of it
    I formed my own opinions and never got "nervous" or "uncomfortable" around them as other people who are even slightly racist obviously do
    They were my friends and I remember them fighting for me as did I them in certain circumstances

    As I grew up though and now that I'm done with high school and I look back
    I was called white boy and beaten for it througout middle school
    Called white boy, if I ever had an opinion that was "white people shit"
    I even got into fights with people who would tell me I'd have to kill them to shut them up while being racist to ME, making me feel lesser for being white

    I'm not saying white people are the ones victims now

    I know every white kid I grew up around though would be too scared to even ever try to be racist especially to somebody's face
    I've seen white people put down but never once seen someone need to stand up against the N word, or any discrimination for that matter

    So yea
    Kinda shit if you ask me
    I always hoped common sense would play a larger role in the future of humanity but we're obviously not much better than monkeys and I hate all races

    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.
