I can't believe no one has commented on this guy's post. I am of MEXICAN decent and I'M an AMERICAN. Natural and healthy if you don't like a certain group of people? I'm sorry my friend but that is called Racism.

Yes - to some, it is normal.

It happens.

It is real life.

What I believe is immaterial PL.

It is what it is.

There will always be racism - in the US and the world.

There will always be bigotry - in the US and the world.

It is human nature

And humans are imperfect creatures.

There you go, talking about anything to avoid my question. My question was, Do you believe this is ok? Is Racism OK to you?

You seem to have a thing for turning it into something personal with the posters in this forum. You ask specific questions about what a person believes, based on something impersonal they write. The point they were making is that it exists. Do you deny that it exists? You twisting the comments and info to apply to the posters personal beliefs is pointless Pro.

I'm not asking if it exists or not, I know damn well racism exists today. I already stated it existed before. It will always exist. I simply ask Greatday if he believes racism is a-ok to him.

The problem with discussing "RACISM" is that it's an extremely subjective word. I know what it is, and I know what it isn't.....but many people may disagree, and because of its subjective nature, many unpleasant situations might be termed 'racist', when there are a dozen OTHER reasons for them, above and beyond racism...

FOR EXAMPLE--- One could say "AMERICA is a RACIST SOCIETY....it has expressed a negative attitude toward many immigrants who are here illegally, and is eager to call these people 'criminals', when in fact, they are really just here to work"...

ON THE OTHER HAND, though--- one could ALSO make the point that America has taken in possibly as many as 20 million unauthorized 'entrants', (literally one TENTH of the population of Mexico, PLUS many other nationalities)...and, instead of getting these people with Violence, or immediate imprisonment, or deportation, America has done little more than "grumbling" at them, making a few silly 'threats', and some unkind remarks..otherwise, these illegal residents are mostly alowed to STAY ON HERE indefinitely..therefore, in THIS sense, America must be an extremely UN-RACIST PLACE (meaning that the American people have SO far shown remarkable PATIENCE, given the great numbers of illegals who are here..

In other words, one could call us 'racist' and one could say we AREN'T..and EACH person would be convinced he was 'right'...
