but where are the racist attacks coming from? Why are there racist attacks at all?

Why is there so much pressure from a certain community against Stacey to oppose the very essence of REv. Martin Luther King Jr's message??

Saw this today. Just shows that people are racist regardless of their political leanings. Closest thing in Canada would be a francophone Canadian voting for an English Prime Minister.

There is?

Are you trying to say that people are NOT racist regardless of their political leanings (which is also true)?

Honest conversation about race in America.

Postby Phatscotty on Thu Jul 25, 2013 11:01 pm

Views on race relations in the U.S. have come down sharply from new levels of optimism reached after President Barack Obama's election in 2008, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll suggests.

Optimism over race relations in the U.S. has slid since its historic high in January 2009, when 79% of whites and 64% of blacks—described such relations as good.

In the new poll, only 52% of whites and 38% of blacks felt that way.


I think the average Obama voter had a very different idea what would happen to racial relations in America when they elected him president.

For anyone who wants to have the discussion, what are the reasons for such a dismal plunge in race relations? They seemed pretty darn good 5 years ago.

Did they not poll any other races (e.g. Asian, Hispanic*)?

*For purposes of this discussion, being Latin American or Hispanic is a race. Yes, this footnote is directed at Woodruff.

I'm taking it you have not heard of the knockout game, that is black people specifically targeting white people? This has gone way past 'promoting', people have been killed. Sounds like an us vs. them thing to me.



So while you are living in lala land espousing the opposite of reality, you should know by now you are clueless to the point you have no business talking on the issue of race or racism with anyone.

Put Symmetry down as one of the people who have been sweeping the problem under the rug while encouraging and feeding and empowering this kind of racist violent culture.

There are multiple races in asia. Malaysian GP is one of my favourite events. Seeing the pit girls in a hot climate wearing more than somewhere cold so the muslims(which are not a race..... islam is a religion kiddies) don't get all rapey by seeing someone's calves.

Malaysia recently banned women from putting one leg on each side of a motorbike when riding because the vibrations of the bike will cause them obscene pleasure.
