I've found that it doesn't really matter what color your skin is or who your ancestors were. There's always someone or some group of people out there who won't like you and who will harbor some sort of ill-conceived, ethnically based dislike for you and yours.

Unfortunately, it's human nature.
yep
ppl in boston liked free black ppl better
than irish catholics back in tha day
so much for racsism

At Newport Beach or Orange County we do not have racism but for some folks they are experiencing racism. I would like your input please so I know where to stay away from !!!

I have had in the past a lot of white guys shouting out "where did you steal that car from?" and stuff like that.

I remembered once a white chick walked up behind me and spat one me I had no idea why perhaps because i wasn't white.

Thanks
Not all hispanics are rabidly in favor of illegal immigration - so the assumption that it's a white issue is wrong in the first place.

NBGuy,

Never give up your dignity. You are not a non-white American, you are an American with ALL the rights and privliges as any other American citizen.

Exert you power by defending that Knucklehead's right to say what ever his feeble little mind can conjour up. That is true power...

Learn your rights...and fight for them, in all occasions. That is what a being true American is all about.

Love to believe that but there is clearly a class system in place in our country.

Hell, I'm native American and my ancestors have been here longer than anyone and I get treated like a second class citizen in some circles.

This is true , and all of the legislation in the world will not eliminate it completely . Especially when certain folks benefit from their
" victim status " . But , that's a topic for another thread .

IF you are in favor of illegal immigration, you are in favor of a subclass.
There is a huge underclass forming right before our eyes due to illegal immigration.

Get some new friends and hobbies then. I've learned to deal with it, there is no law that says people have to like you.
