This is gonna be a kinda stream of consciousness kinda rant, so bear with me here...

Racism is preference based on race or ethnicity, right? I can see how that'd be morally wrong most of the time, but some people need to STFU about it being absolutely wrong all the time.

Example one. Let's say the president needs a James Bond-esque guy to infiltrate a Muslim fundamentalist group. Is it wrong to not want a white guy? Hell no.

Or say some guy does a study on average IQ's and he finds that asians on average have a higher IQ than blacks. So what? It doesn't make the guy performing a damned bigot. Racism doesn't make truth untrue.

Short poorly written rant is short poorly written. But whatever. I hate people and their damned "HRRRNGH, RACISM IS ALWAYS BAD" and their damned "HRRRRGH, I'M SO MODEST BUT I DON'T DO ANYTHING THAT'S MODEST SO I SAY IT SO PEOPLE THINK I'M MODEST".

Kthx. And just so we can make this topic discussable, post your moments with idiots trying to be all cool and morally in the clear by ranting about how reasonable racism is terrible.

EDIT: Another one I thought up, and this one might stir up some controversy. Random screening on planes and stuff. IMO, that's just racial profiling. Big deal. Just let them screen you. They're doing it so people don't get blown up and stuff.

DERP.

My point: Some people are bred to be too un racist to the point where they'll deny truth. LOL TRUTH ISN'T RELATIVE, KTHX.

That's not racism. One of those is choosing the better suited person for the job and one is a statistic.

Oh yeah, and if guitar hero got you into the guitar? you're really playing for the wrong reasons.

there is no wrong reason to play a guitar, except for world enslavement and extermination of certain races, but those guys never make it big anyway.

first off..muslim isnt a race. you cant convert to a race. You cant go, "hey, i want to convert to black today" therefore its not racist. and furthermore, your talking more along the lines of stereotypes then of true racism. Racism is only practiced by stupid rednecks in southern maryland who think that the reason they live in trailers with their deformed children is because of black people, not because of the fact that they didnt graduate 3rd grade and they porked their sister...

there are insanely RACIST black girls at my college. We had a discussion about race in class, and after class I walked behind them to my next class. They were saying stuff like "I'm racist as hell" "I wanted to pop one of those white bitches in the face" and the classic "i don't know why they call me f*cking black, i'm brown those dumbass bitches"

ugh...

actually, the only thing that was racist was the last bit. you cant assume some one is a terrorist just because they're an arab, just profile everyone.


You can never fucking trust Canada when Canada decides to report on world news that doesn't concern Canada. Canada is only in it for Canada's sake. Canada doesn't even know Batman.

I don't like the type of people who will call someone racist from the mere mention of race.

Exaggerated example: "Hey, Dave is that black guy across the street."
"OMG you racist fuck"

I thought you could be ethnically muslim too, like how you can be ethnically jewish? Even if it's untrue, it's just semantics...

no, jewish is a religion as well. christianity is a religion, but nobody calls it a race because its so widespread. this is what i hate. "OMGZZ YOU HATE MUSLIMS THERE4 uR RACISTZ" im not, i play on a football team that is predomatly black, i just dont see the point in a religion that involves blowing yourself up for various virgins when you could easily just take a high school hostage and get the same result in the virgin department..

It is truly fact that there are some stereotypes and differences that exist between races.
A racial joke or harsh racial comment is born from an intensified element of that race.

I don't have a problem with people disliking a certain race for a stereotyped reason, just as long as they don't hurt that races feelings or individual. It is their problem not mine.

yes, investigate by detaining them and interrogating them.

racism is everywhere, and now that you've realized it, your pissed off, partially because you can't change it, so you're trying to make it seem like it isn't really a big deal.

i don't see what the big deal is. i'd rather have somebody who looks like he could possibly be a anti-western culture militant be checked than not.

Rather, I'm pissed off because racism isn't always bad. I've never heard of reports of a guy detained and interrogated by the TSA based on profiling. But I haven't heard of a lot of things, so I could just be wrong on that one.

yes, but the MAJORITY of arabs are not terrorists. they should not be automatically assumed that they are going to blow up a plane just because of the color of their skin.
