[@23671,basilfawlty89] You're essentially saying "problem a is not equal to problem b, therefore it doesn't matter". I will throw you a bone and say that I actually agree that whites do not suffer from racism the worst, but we do suffer from it. Literally every ethnicity does. Now, as for your question, if a black dude calls me a cracker, what impact does it have? Well, a negative one, because he's calling me a word that denotes a slave master, and that's fucked up to compare me with something that morally reprehensible. Regardless of whether he knows the origins of the word or not, the essence of his implication of "fuck whites", seeing as he's only using it towards me because of the arbitrary constructed classified race I fall into. NOW, what effect would a white man calling a black man a nigger have? Literally the exact same impact, he would hurt his feelings and it would be mean. Both are wrong, tho your implication in adding "AND stokes up racial hate" in suggesting that a white using racial slurs towards a black has more power. False, it depends on the white or the black... Louis Farrakhan has more "power" through his "institution" to spread racial hate with the VAST majority of whites in this country do.

Bro, listen, I love you, but you NEED to treat everyone equally regardless of their skin color and be against all racism. And racism is specifically defined as the idea that a race or races are superior or inferior to another. Tho more broadly speaking connotatively, it's being a cunt towards people because of their race, which is also bad, and just as bad for each individual suffering.

[@712527,AgapeLove] not really, because very few people take Farrakhan seriously. He's a contemptible piece of shit, but he has no real power. It's not like he has any influence on institutions and state policy. Meanwhile, anti Mexican sentiment means brown kids in cages.

My point is not that it's right being bigoted against white people. It's wrong, but it doesn't come close to the same thing and you're blowing it out of proportion.
AgapeLove · M
[@23671,basilfawlty89] If that really is your point, which you had an awfully sketchy way of making, then it's something i'v said myself before. I have said before that whites do not suffer racism the most, but that it's still a problem.
Dionysus · 41-45, F
No one in my real life actually does this.
Dionysus · 41-45, F
Sounds about right. Every little dingbat movement gets their say online [@712527,AgapeLove]
AgapeLove · M
[@574901,Dionysus] That's true, thanks to the internet we have flat earthers, Alt righters, and a lot more cancer. I'm thankful for the internet because it can bring people closer together, but sometimes it brings the wrong ppl together :o
Dionysus · 41-45, F
I thought most people were nice and decent until YouTube came along with the comment section 😮 [@712527,AgapeLove]

[c=#7700B2]it is not hip, it is racist and sexist. Nothing hip about it [/c]
AkAtSUki · F
We get no where with racial issues.
Eternity · 22-25, M
Because I can curb stomp most of the ones around my age with ease and therefore it is safe for me to say whatever I want about them to their face or otherwise :P
Eternity · 22-25, M
[@712527,AgapeLove] yeah yall shoot us because that's your only option. Fight fair and you lose every time.

Say it in reverse and it will just be white noise (pun intended)

[@807598,Eternity] I've actually heard it said in reverse because of how much more likely blacks are to fight in pairs statistically. But who cares, maybe blacks are on average better fighters... what is your point? Are you just saying that so you can make your race look good or feel accomplished? There is not need to be tribal like that, we are one human species, and that's the tribe we should all realize we're in together and work as brothers and sisters in thst
CountScrofula · 41-45, M
I'll actually go with a question here.

What does an offensive drawing of a white person look like?
Jackaloftheazuresand · 26-30, M
[@624254,CountScrofula] No. By the same token if I put up a black guy with gold chains and low pants would that make people uncomfortable?
CountScrofula · 41-45, M
[@383281,Jackaloftheazuresand] That's more a stereotype than a racist caricature - like you could offend someone with it but you'd need context. I'm thinking more like a white equivalent to this:

Jackaloftheazuresand · 26-30, M
[@624254,CountScrofula] I don't know that it's ever been done. So does that discount the idea that whites are bashed in other ways that the rest aren't?
basilfawlty89 · 31-35, M
"A black guy calling me whitey is totally the same as genocide and slavery" - white guys on the Internet
If most Black People don't have access to the same education as whites do, if they can't continue to go to school because of dire financial circumstances and IQ tests are based on a White Education System where are these stats coming from?
AgapeLove · M
[@619287,Jwalker] Ah, but you don't need to be educated to have a high IQ, and IQ tests don't test general knowledge, they detect things like Detective reasoning, memory, pattern recognition, etc. As far the "white education system", the problem with claiming it's biased by whites apart from the lack of evidence for that, is that the ethnicities with the highest IQ are Asian people and Jews... who are not European.
basilfawlty89 · 31-35, M
[@712527,AgapeLove] and here we go with scientific racism shit. If you're so about dacrsy btw, might wanna see which racial group does the most terrorism in America. Hint - they're not black or brown.

There's nothing racist to state the facts that on average black people perform lower in IQ scores, but it is if you claim they are geneticallt predisposed to low IQ. Which again, if we go by that logic white people are inherently extremely violent.
basilfawlty89 · 31-35, M
This more and more sounds like some Altright propaganda. "Muh IQ scores". "Muh hwites created everything an so advanced"
AgapeLove · M
[@23671,basilfawlty89] I'v danced with alt righters and debunked all their claims about Jews, and why an ethno state is supposedly a good thing. But that doesn't change the fact that their claims on racial Iq is true.
basilfawlty89 · 31-35, M
[@712527,AgapeLove] their claims aren't. It's true black people ON AVERAGE score lower, but they claim it had to do with racial genetics, a laughable concept. The actuality is people from lower socioeconomic brackets score lower, black schools face neglect from the state, so do black neighbourhoods, hence poverty, hence lower IQ.
AgapeLove · M
[@23671,basilfawlty89] The biologists who study the genetic origins of IQ say your dna sequences code up to 20%-50% of someone's IQ... this is of course not perfect, but it's the best estimations they have given their mapping of the human genome. I don't know if the frequency of such alleles are more prevalent among which different racial populations, but it wouldn't matter to me either way.
