Not all people are raciest.
I refuse to believe there is anyone who has never had a racist thought. I'm sure you have at one point. I wouldn't be having these thoughts if it wasn't for a reason or a negative experience I've had from someone of a different race. I'm not saying it's right but it's just the way things are.

So, based on the few bad experiences you've had with people of a certain ethnic group, do you believe all of them are that way?

Like one person said, a lot of it has to do with your body language and the vibe you put out. I'm told I'm attractive by people, but no one bothers me on the streets. I don't know, I guess I have the attitude of "I'm happily engaged so leave me alone" lol. If a guy starts giving me a look, I give him a dirty look.

You're all a bunch of hypocrites
.................................................. ..............

again, sorry you had such awful experiences. i'd say this to you whether it be blue-eyed blonde men in thongs at Jones Beach or deliverymen in baggy pants in midtown harassing you.

we aren't all hypocrites. maybe the sad experiences are tempoarily clouding your thoughts.

again, i wouldn't wish any female or male to be groped by a stranger. sorry you had such a horrible experience.

Was that you, Rachel? Sorry I meant no harm. It's a compliment to you that I was LOOKING at you.

True.

But you gotta remember that NYC is run by elitist leftists (i.e., Bloomberg).

They live in doormen apartments and send their kids to private schools, but claim to not be racist.

They loooove minorities, but only at a distance.

Their money, and your taxes, allows them to buy an army of minorities who serve and protect them (doormen, cops, cabbies, nannies, food workers, etc.) from other minorities.

Woe to you if you speak ill of their minority servants.

Everyone, please keep this thread on topic.

Continued name calling, insult hurling and offensive generalizations will be the fastest way to get this thread shut down.

For all the women that have been pressed up against, as I have also, when anyone on the train gets too close they get the nice sharp elbow between me and them. Works every time. And the few that really pushed it got told to back the F up in front of the whole train. You've got to be tough in this city sometimes, being all squeezed together on the train and sidewalk.

Yes, you are correct. But it is considered very low class and in poor taste to come out and so openly insult the people that you might think these racist and unfair things about. At least here anyway, not sure about Vegas haha.
