So we have teen age girls (assuming) being mean to other teen age girls, and now it's a race issue. I think this is just a teen girl issue.

NYC is super segregated - that's a fact. Not sure about racist. Racism and prejudice can be everywhere though.

Haha racism problem... Is the Hudson River wet?

Misunderstanding a group of people = prejudice

Diversity and Inclusion Programs = racism
Equal Opportunity = racism
Affirmative Action = racism

In real life, I tend to only socialize with middle/upper income black American women. That is the group that I feel most comfortable with.

The last one is 3,000+ miles away now still texting me on Grindr telling me how much he misses me and wants to come back.

What do you mean by racist? Do you mean that people like their own people best, are proud to be black, white, Jewish, Indian, Arab, Asian, etc. and feel more comfortable around their own. If so then I don’t see that as a problem. I see it as perfectly natural.

When I go to nyc I see Indian owned Dunkin’ Donuts with 6 Indians behind the counter. I see a Chinese furniture business with 8 Chinese employees. I see a Jewish bake shop with 4 Jews behind the counter (or B&H photo with mostly hasids). No one complains because it is perfectly natural for people to want to hire their own and to benefit their own. Of course the Chinese are going to give preference to their own in a Chinese restaurant.

Manhattan doesn't have a racism problem. I don't think the actions of a few ignorant deplorable and classless individuals shouldn't define a whole city.

However, this isn't just a "teen" issue because the "N" word was conveniently used. It's puzzling that the Middle Eastern child would do something so demeaning considering how much they're condemned and if Muslim - feared.

What's puzzling about it? Black people are still treated as if they are the worst of the worst. It's crazy. Middle Easterners aren't known to be done of blacks either despite how they aren't cared for. Historically, I can't think of one group that has really been known to think positively of black people. Even Hispanics... Supposedly black and Hispanic people are in the same boat but you have some that think they're superior. It's comical to say the least, but blame the media. If I didn't know any better, according to news reports, blacks have the worst health, the worst everything. Rarely are black people talked about in the news in a positive manner. Always put down regardless of the ethnic group, not unless they are trying to stereotype them of course.
