So I just did this for whites, so i'll do it for blacks. Why do you think there is SO MUCH racism directed at blacks specifically?

Poll
Because whites took credit for all the tech blacks made, and need to hide that by perpetuating hate
Because out of all races, they commit the most homicide, theft, and out of wedlock sex
Good at sports, have bigger wieners, and win all the music awards
Other (Please explain)

People might think i'm a white supremacist because I acknowledge that racism towards whites exists, which is virtually equal to being in the fucking klan to some. That said, I don't think whites suffer racism the worst, not at all, the race that does is probably blacks or Jews.

Well, your poll options were really revealing about the way you view race. It’s disturbing

[@574901,Dionysus] I view race as an arbitrary categorization with no INHERENT social predictability. I think race based tribalism is the among the worst kind. That is how I view race, why is that disturbing? I am honestly interested in figuring out why some racism exists the way it does, which is what sociologists seek to answer, too. When a model minority is hated, it's often in the form of insane conspiracy, for example.

Why do you think my poll options are wack? I'm jw

[@712527,AgapeLove] You cannot fully grasp the depth and horror of racism unless you are a person of color. And it's simply because White supremacy is a big reality.

[@322117,Zonuss] What if I was rapes by black dudes just for being white in prison? I wasn't, but that happens all the time. Please answer me that, I am not coming antagonistically, and I actually like you and think you're a kind dude.
I'm not asking these questions to perpetuate racism, i'm asking to end it. But you need to get to the root of a problem, and that's why i'm trying to figure out why different groups experience racism the way they do

[@593235,BlueClapTrap] All of them are fake. 🙄

Racism targeting blacks is the social standard because that's like... the foundations of American history and identity. The very concept of races as we understand them was invented to justify the slave trade. The slave trade morphed into Jim Crow, and now mass imprisonment and disenfranchisement.

That shit doesn't vanish overnight. The civil rights movement is VERY recent history.

[@808111,EmilyMom] All I'm saying is that the US has never existed without racism, and for most of its history that racism was legally enforced. That's an essential part of its identity.

Doesn't mean Americans or bad people or you're a racist or whatever. Nothing is perfect. Point is to understand what we're dealing with and not sugarcoat it or rewrite history to make everyone feel better.

[@624254,CountScrofula] Just because racism existed at the founding of America doesn't mean we were FOUNDED on it??? You'd of course need to clarify what you mean by "founded", after all if you meant "originated at the time of_" you'd be correct. But to outright say it was founded on Slavery, is to say every country is.
CountScrofula · 41-45, M
[@712527,AgapeLove] Eh, we can split hairs on what founded means but it's not particularly important for my argument.

Well I'm not saying the US is the only racist place in the world. I'm tying racism to the slave trade because that lasted a very long time, and legally-mandated racism was only abolished in the 60s.

That's a very short time ago. Crusaders against civil rights are just retiring now.

This is absolutely garbage. Stop the hate. Stop the comparison you insecure swine. And accept humanity for what it is.
AgapeLove · M
[@322117,Zonuss] I do not hate, I love all black people and all people. I love humanity but I think homo-sapiens have the potential to be even more than we are! Both ethically and technologically

The racism that must stop is institutional.
It must stop or the US is a joke when standing for free people.
Media and liberals push racism. It’s their bread n butter.
Only racism I see are the ppl walking around pointing their crooked boney fingers projecting...

A possibly interesting question immediately ruined by the racist, stereotypical phrasing of the poll options. :(
