It seems to me on this board and in real life that the only allowable negative comments can come from those of the same race or nationality.

Trash people are always more visible because of their annoying and obnoxious behaviour. Regular, civilize, more normal people just blend in well with the rest of society.

The problem is that a whole group or race of people are judged based on the trash. That is what you and so many others on CD and in society do. What is so productive about doing that? Maybe it makes it easier for people like you to not have to apply critical thinking to a situation, but thats about it.

Instead of recognizing trash for what it is - trash, you and others of the same mentality use it as a broad brush to paint everyone else in a group.

That is one thing that people need to realize. Blacks have often been judged by the worst of its ethnic group. Judging an entire ethnic group as bad based on a few stereotypes is a very horrible thing and that is one thing that needs to end.

I definitely think the key is the younger generation. You can see it happening as we speak. They are less likely to follow stereotyps of their elders and form their own opinion.

Maybe out in most of America, but where I am, the youth would rather paint every person of my skin pigment as no different than the lowest segment of the race. You see it every day, particularly in the forms of racially monolithic cliques, quickness to base actions of stereotypical blacks as fact for how all blacks are, lack or interracial couples involving blacks (compared to seeing how many whites/Asians/S. Indians are involved in one), listening to today's rap music and taking it as a documentary instead of entertainment (or really seeing what it is as an instrument to spread a racist image about blacks).

So... I guess from this post, you still haven't found an Asian girlfriend? Why not trying dating a nice black woman in the meantime?

1) Stop thinking you have the authority to tell me where "my place is." Why you're at it, why don't you tell me to drop out of college, sell drugs, and end up on Maury for some "you're my baby daddy" segment. Northeastern US elitism at its finest!
2) I would be just as happy with a white, middle-eastern, Latino, or black girlfriend.

1)Then stop making PUBLIC posts about how you only see Asian women with white boyfriends and that you can't find an Asian girl to date.

2) I am pleased to see that you are willing to date women of other races. However, if you reread your past posts on the subject of dating, they were all emo about not being able to find an Asian girlfriend.

Its NOBODYS place to decide who is trash or whatever!! Judge yourself before you judge others. Obviously black people mean alot to you.....I mean no one cares what you say about us. ITS NOT for you to judge us...... Reprogram your brain!!

My post that you replied to stated that I think that trash people come in ALL races, so that would include whites and Asians. So where do you get that I am judging just one race on their trash people?

I take people as I meet them. If I encounter trash people, I just get them out of my life quickly, no matter what colour their skin is.
