Moderator removed - let's leave the racial words out of it. - I'm not interested to hear about racial incidents when it's only "news" if the racist is white person. When are people going to finally realize how racist all races are?

These "white people are so racist" threads get old, fast.
Who said this thread was about how racist White people are? All that you can gather from the premise is that a Black guy and White woman on the front page of a magazine pissed off some PD patrons. I think anything more being inferred from that is simply your own personal bias.

Ummm because it's there right to associate with who they want to. I mean seriously you are going to force students to date or be around people they dont want to be around? Myself i have lived in black neighborhoods i have seen what goes on, it scares the crap out of me,i was afraid to walk to the store when i lived there. I did not want to associate with those people and i didn't once i saw there true colors come out.

got it, your previous comment was a bit confusing.

I wasn't speaking of this thread. I'm speaking of city-data in general. It's a haven for liberal whites to come on and say, "poor black people - poor immigrants", "which region is most diverse", "which city is the most racist", which state has the worst racial history", "which state is lease accepting".

Give me a freaking break! It's old. Every damn one of them threads boils down to how racist whites are to either blacks or Latinos.

Come on people, don't you ever get tired of calling yourself a racist? If we are so damn racist get off your ass and get out and do something about it. You think Dr. MLK would have sat on his fat ass blogging about how oppressed he was? Ha


(And believe me, I do know how possible it is to get a group of inbred whites together to go nuts over something so stupid. But I also know they don't represent the white race just like blacks say criminal thugs do not represent their race)

If it were any other race combination, it wouldn't be as big a deal.

I love the implication that blacks say criminal thugs don't represent their race, but it's not necessarily true. However, you know bigots don't represent whites.

Now that I understand your objection better, I think it's valid, if broad at some points and dismissive at others.

My metro has a history of shared disdain, and for that reason I would never want to live in another place where any one group of people felt animosity towards another group of people. I wouldn't deal with it. So yes, before I made a decision to move somewhere, I'd ask what the socioeconomic climate was like and I would hope anyone would before making such a leap. But the endless threads about "how racist is this state" are over simplistic and too numerous.

I don't think this represents White people as a whole. I don't think anything does. And I would definitely hope it isn't this of all things.

And what about the people who want to integrate, do they have the same rights? Let me guess, according to your "theology," they wouldn't "simply because!"

Unless you're just as willing to defend those who want to integrate (not with the slime subset of a minority you saw, but the normal, law-abiding, assimilated ones) GTFO with your pro-segregationist agenda!

Dream On. If you went to cities like San Diego, Denver, Minneapolis, Seattle, Austin, Portland, and even places like San Fran, Tampa, Vegas, Phoenix, and Houston, you'd think you were in Canada.

Good for you. But here's one advice: Just don't think diversity = everyone getting along, some of the most diverse cities are very racially divided. The keyword is "integrated!"
