I've witnessed plenty of racism being exhibited on both sides. Its not just a white on black thing. There are many racists blacks as well. Using slavery and segregation that happened back when is no excuse for a black to be racists towards whites today. Blacks today have the same opportunities that whites do.

I agree!!!!

I will openly say all the whining, riots, and protests has made ME a racist.

But, that is not a problem to me..........I do not need a job and can live in an area with people that look like me.

I'm sorry this is just not true. There are racist Blacks but the majority of it comes from whites, that's just fact. Blacks do not have the same opportunities. A black person with a college degree is still twice as less likely to be hired than a white person with a degree. So you're telling me thats " the same opportunity"? It's not an opportunity when you have an employer biased against you especially in the business world. It's not an opportunity when police single you out. I'm speaking facts and I don't even follow all of that black lives matter crap. The biggest lie is that equality actually exists.

Maybe there are more racist white because whites in this country outnumber blacks by a large margin.

I don't know about you but I work in a corporate environment where it's predominately black. Even many of the higher ups are black.

Those blacks claiming to not have the same opportunities probably didn't apply themselves to obtaining a higher education. Same goes for people of all nationalities. I myself chose to pursue a higher education while a friend of mine chose to hang in the streets getting high and drinking. He got caught up and now has a criminal record. Is there any mystery as to why he won't be favored over me if we were to both apply for the same position?

Qualified blacks don't have any trouble finding jobs. These protesters are still going to be crying in 10 years when they learn their handout African Studies degrees don't get them a job.

49% say racism is a problem. The other 51% are white.

I kid I kid.

I personally hate threads like this. Yes, there are those out there who are racist and they will always be racist no matter what they are told or shown. Then there are those out there who think that EVERYONE is racist towards them no matter what truly happened. So, for some, racism will always be a problem.

Just because you married outside your race does not mean that your not racist....and does not give u a free pass to make racist comments.
I am white male married to a black Hispanic beauty. What I can confirm is that racism is alive and well. My wife and I witnessed racism from both white, black and Hispanics. Which is why I think racism is not exclusive to white people.
