I'm white, but would I be a racist for wanting to be black?

yes, whites are the most racist group. whenever i go out with my white girlfriend, it is whites that pay attention and give me the looks.

i actually wouldnt say whites in general, i would say white men. lot of jealousy, anger, etc.

And by the way, there is no such thing as talking white. Stupidest thing I've ever read lol. There is coherent and incoherent form of communication. It is not labeled white lol. I've run into plenty of whites who are incoherentand talk like idiots, as well as blacks, hispanics, etc.

...what does "WHITE" mean?.....is White a race?

Irish is white......Russian is white....Spanish is white....are these the same?.....

NO

What does "BLACK" mean....

Ethiopian is black....Ugandan is black....Kenyan is black...are these the same?....

NO...

Let’s get off the "color" = "race" thing.....that's way too big of a copout.....

Take the time to learn that people are more complex than a mere color...

why woud I care about proving it. I deal with white people everyday. all of the racism i receive is from whites, white males specifically.

this is no science breakdown or proving it with a link, this is what I observe on a daily basis.

So you're making a sweeping racist comment, but admitting that you cannot - and so you will not - back it up with any evidence whatever.

You might as well say that the moon is made of cheese.

I have to go with Omaha on this one. This is a pretty bold statement to pass off as indisputable fact. Many examples of absolutely brutal racism by other ethnic groups can be cited as evidence that these groups are the 'most' racist. Personally, I don't think any one group has the corner on the market. Stating as fact that 'whites are the most racist group' smacks of racism in it's own right. Something to think about anyway.
