When I was coming home from work today, at about 11 p.m., I was in the bus, sitting across from this black dude, about 22 years old, dreads etc.´Didn't think much of it, was listening to music in one ear, fine.

Two stops down the road, a guy gets in, and sits next to the black guy. He was constantly muttering under his breath, things like "fucking Africans... chop off their heads...dirty monkeys.." and other things that just made me go

The black guy just looked at the white guy once, shook his head, and got off at the next stop.

When he was gone, the other guy turned to me and said "thank god that nigger's gone, right?"

I just stared at him in disbelief and got off the bus at the next stop as well.

I was seriously shocked at the amount of hate that was in his voice when he was muttering. I mean, in Germany the most delinquent groups of foreigners are the Turks and the Polish, not the Africans, so he was really hating just because of the color of the skin. Hating another human being just because of his skin color.

I live in Southwestern Virginia.


Around here, racism is as American as apple pie and baseball.


It sickens me to have to deal with it.
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.

Yes, many times, for example in Denmark where I lived for a few years. Also in buses similar to Corey's experience.

Racism is a part of everyday life for alot of people. Most of them don;t even know why they are racist. It's just the way they're brought up by their parents who grew up in the riots and sub-cultures of the 70's and 80's.

Where I live, racism is actually pretty uncommon. I have ran across a few people who don't like everyone but nothing ever as bad as what you experienced.

I recently moved to Missouri from Colorado.
I expected a little bit more racism. It is the midwest.
Turns out my school is practically segregated. Not by any mandate or policy.
Black kids just don't sit with white kids.
And I've met far too many men like the one on that bus.

Sounds like he was a troll in real life if he sat next to the black guy and starting saying racist things out loud.

When I went to my friends house one time, his grandmother was visiting and she was incredibly racist. I stuck with being as polite as possible. When my friend left his room to get us some drinks, I could hear his grandmother (right outside of the door, actually) saying "you're not going to leave that terrorist alone in there, are you?" and my friend said "grow up grandma"

Another time I was over at another friend's house and she left the room for a minute and i could hear her dad shout "don't leave him alone for too long, he might blow up" and my friend said "dad, he can hear you" and he says "I know."

Thats standard in any non suburban schools. People just identify and label themselves.

You should have just strapped loads of sausages to your chest, ran into the room and shouted ALLAHHhhH! just to teach them a lesson and make them shit their pants.

I hate people who assume all people from an asian background are Western-hating terrorists.
I see alot of that, I live near Birmingham.

Australians are not racist at all when it comes to black people, but for some reason, we don't like Asians.

True, true.

But really, some of the racist things I've heard are almost unbearable.

Really makes you wonder about human nature....

I'm glad the man didn't add fuel to the fire by showing anger or the disrespect he likely felt. He kept his calm and therefore, the ass sitting next to him didn't get the satisfaction he was looking for.

But hell, you should've punched him in the face.

Yeah I've heard and seen horid things (at the high school I'm about to go to a few seniors were walking around with nooses and they attempted to put them around some black kids neck) its disturbing how people can be so horrible to each other just of their skin color or their beliefs.

I was going to say something, but I was too shocked to think of anything smart to say. so I just left as well.

Now find a group of people modern society despises (Nazis, for example) and tell me you have no hate lingering within your body. Hate exists for its own reasons, and people conclude on their hate or lack of hate for whatever reasons they choose (or that cause them to choose). Sure, when it comes to race and class and belief system based hate; it is generally stereotypical, but isn't that the norm when it comes to hatred at all? There are even stories of Nazis being decent people and doing things to make the suffering of those they torture easier to bare (among other, more heroic, acts). Yet, the media and general population of the world would not have us know that. Why? Because of hatred. I could see why someone would hate black people in this modern day. Far to many of them have become increasingly obnoxious with their need to be "gang related", their hypocritical use of the word "******", and the constant desire they have to remind all white people that we enslaved them (all year round, especially in February). One would be led to believe every February we celebrate our growing closeness, however the opposite occurs. Distance is continually formed. Sure, this still doesn't give this guy the right to be an ass and "hate" this black guy sitting next to him; but does hatred NEED a reason? One can justify so many things in so many ways.
