I know the human race is thought to have come from Africa yet the Uk and China developed, then settlers from the Uk moved to America, so what if they took slaves there, be thankful if your there because your ancestor was taken by slave labour. I know this sounds cruel but lets face it, at the moment you've got a better quality of life in places like America and the Uk, than in places like africa. Ok so the whities moved everywhere, the USA whities can be originated from England and the Austrailians, but it doesn't matter, it's in the past. Live life to the full people, don't argue because people in the past made mistakes, you shouldn't disgrace whites or blacks for this, lets face it, if these things hadn't have happened, then the world would be less cultured and a lot more wars would be happening because of misunderstandings.

In america blacks may be treated differently this I'm not sure of but the fact remains that because the hip hop/rap culture is so big here blacks aren't treated that bad.

It's white men here who get the worst deal in my opinion:

White women can say men are sexist

Black women can say people are sexist or racist

Black men can also call the racism card

The racism card seems to work for any person that isn't white, but if a person is racist to a white it gets less notice.

I'd say yes I do find some black women offensive because of their attitudes but some I am ok with.

I dont really like Asian men but thats because they hang around in gangs a lot in the city centre and tend to follow me.

I find Asian women are generally really nice people and a teacher I have had for science who is Asian teacher is one of the nicest, cleaverest people I have ever met.

I also have a black male friend.

I find that people in England can take racism as a joke, for example a black person or white will call a black person a n****r but not necissarily in offence but in humor, it's the great British humour that other countries I find (and I haven't met everyone so don't pull a wobbly on me) that we have the ability to make fun of ourselves and others and we find it, not offensive, but laughable.

People are also forgetting one simple thing, we all live of the same planet people, we are all of one race called humans, I dont see why were looking to extend the hand of friendship across planets when we can get over 'the slave trade' or other such things. I think this is all in the past and therefore, we can learn from it but theres no point in making a big thing about it because doing so wont change the face that it happened.

Martin Luther King one said 'I have a dream....' well so do I, I have a dream that the past will not be forgotton but we will learn from mistakes made and join together, not calling ourselves whites or blacks but just simple humans. That whites AND blacks can stop being racist (both are nomatter what you say) but live together in an enviroment where no one doesn't fit it.

That we stop living in such a superficial society and insted not care about looks or colour, we are who we are, we may be attracted or get on with some races better than others but that doesn't mean anyone should be on the defensive. Remember beauty comes from within the very soul of each, and the prettiest person may not be the most beautiful inside, instead we need to look beyond skin-deep, (some people who have forgotten this should watch beauty and the beast because of this reason and also the lion king 2 because I believe this reveals racism in a positive light, yes they are disney films, I dont care! They give out important messages that only children seem to know becuase most adults think these films are too 'childish' well no they aren't!)

We shouldn't shun a race just because of a few indevidulas, take each indevidual and get to know them, they may take you by surprize. Many people (especially those who are older) find it harder to trust others because they've had more bad experiances, this shouldn't happen, people every person deserves a chance.

Every person I met I try to be pleasent to, if they are rude I will act acordingly.

Sorry for a long speech but this is my dream. I guess it wont happen in my lifetime though. :(

i said enough, and i meant it.

personal attacks will NOT be tolerated here, and this sort of public squabbling demeans both parties, interferes with the thread and never leads to anything productive.

sincere apologies to all those people who are posting on this thread in a civilised way, but i'm locking this thread for a bit, to let things cool down.

this topic is now unlocked, now that people have had a chance to cool down, and know where they are.

let's keep it civilised from now on, okay?

thank you.

I'm really...late but Meh.
All I have to say is that in my part of England, it doesn't matter how it was meant, if it offended a non-white person or whatever terminology you wanna use - its racist. :roll:

Racism is a multi-directional thing, there are more than 2 races in society (atleast here in america), and it goes many ways. I'm not the least bit racist, it's a stupid thing, because skin color doesn't make someone a different person. People are people, at the end of the day everyone is the same. Culture might put a few things into people but race is just a skin color, nothing more. Whites can be racist, blacks can be racist, browns can be racist, asians can be racist, so can arabs, american indians, or anyone, hell even animals can be racist. I have risen above such foolish behavior though.

Not quite sure. Racism is a part of the nature’s way of speeding up the evolution process of a particular race. Nature wants to create an apatite between the races so individual racial characteristics can develop without being diluted with other races.

Example was to bread greyhound for racing you don’t want no German Shepard anywhere near your b*****s. You would end up with mongrels that would not be good at anything. If those mongrel dogs got out and started humping with more b*****s, your greyhounds would not be able to compete well in greyhound races.

Living in a 95%+ white town, I haven't met many blacks or other minorities. I used to have a black neighbor who was cool though. I also had class with a black girl who just seemed like any white girl at my school (stuck up prep).

I think the real problems are: Affirmative Action, Poverty, and "Hate Crime" laws.

"doesn't automatically assume that whites are pre-disposed to become killers."

Well, the stereotypical serial killer is a white male under the age of 35.

We aspies are kinda like another race of beings, not defined by the color of our skin but by the type of brain we have. Aspies come in all colors. And it doesn't generally divide us.

I mean I get what your saying about pure breeding but people aren't like other animals in that extent, we don't really know what we wanna do because we have free will, we can more easily choose our hobbies and proffessions. I'd rather mate with an AS female of any color than the most beautiful NT out there. I mean by this point our bloodlines are already mixed up alot anyhow, the only pure races there are are maybe some jews and I think the pigme tribes in Africa (the little peoples :D )
