Er... no. I'm prejudiced against anyone who's an entitled, elitist bastard, or an ignorant, anti-science hillbilly, regardless of skin color. But when you're in a country with a white majority, it stands to figure that most of these flawed individuals will be white.
Am I supposed to dismiss idiocy or elitism simply because the offender by coincidence shares the same skin color as me?


It's not regardless of skin color though. It's especially because of skin color. That's why it's always white people instead of just people.

I try not to adress the individual when discussing topical matters, but I bet if I searched your post history for the word "white" I would see a pretty large number of times you have written it. And I'd also bet the majority of those times it was a display of contempt.


Again, no. Check my personal history on such threads, and you'll find me bashing crackers, Republicans, conservatives, and inbreds. Perhaps the problem is with you immediately coming to the conclusion that whites are being talked about. And why is it that you seem to identify whites as merely the financially elite, or redneck poor? The circles I travel in consist of people without much money, but with education, intellect, and artistic talent, which hardly fits in with either of those categories.

It doesn't only exist among white people. It exists among people period.

Yes, but to say that all groups of people are equal in perpetuating social harm is farcical.

I already know if you consider other white people to be like yourself, they're okay. Otherwise they're elitist fascist trash or inbred cracker fascist trash.

If it's predominantly a white person thing, then why is there so much social harm taking place in Central America?

If white people in the USA become the minority, which is likely due to declining birth rates among whites, it stands to reason social harm will still exist the same as it does in predominantly non-white countries.

And if someone were to say the reason why social harm takes place in Central America is due to it being predominantly brown, they would be called a racist. In that case it would be said the color of skin is an irrelevant factor.

No, most white Americans, like Americans in general, are okay. But I'm not going to excuse someone who is an entitled elitist or ignorant just because of the accident of sharing the same skin color as me.

I was specifically meaning America. And just to let you know, much of Latin America is much more ethnically diverse than you may realize.

Initially, I didn't mention skin color till you accused me of being a self-hating white.

How so? I mean you always refer to them as brown people. Like as in the white people are afraid of the brown people coming across the border.

I'm speaking about the fear racists have of Latinos coming to America, thinking it'll further the "browning of America."

We've had this conversation already, and I'm certain I already answered your questions.
