How often do we hear about black-on-white crime on the news compared to white-on-black crime? Even though black-on-white crime is much more common than white-on-black crime, white-on-black crime is only shown on the news. Do these people running the news stations or whatever think only whites can be the perpetrators of hate crimes?

So your baseless rant follows the same old pattern of the "blacks do a the crime" mantra!!!

You start off innocently decrying how the poor whites are always portrayed as racist, no other group or race is mentioned in this original post...not even two or three posts later...VOILA...the "blacks did it all" bs makes it's entrance in your posts. See above, if you can't seem to quite remember!!

So again, it's just another black people did it all piece of crap thread!!!

Well, if you don't like my "piece of crap thread", feel free to leave.

You want rudeness? Look over your body of work. It shows someone who is racist and ignorant and doesn't even wish to understand the depth of either one.

Not one of these folks in this thread would dare stand up on principle for the very things they argue for themselves. Not for slavery still happening anywhere in this world. Not for women of any color. Not for Jews. Not for Hispanics. Not for gays. That's how I know far too many of them in this forum are completely FOS. That's how I know why my black colleagues shake their heads in utter disgust right along with the white & asian colleagues. Morons don't come in a specific color but poisoning the ears of children isn't unique to KKK.
oh ok.
seeing as this is a thread about racism and what group is being racist to another group (particularly here in the U.S), I kind of figured it would be logical to stick to the topic (racism) and answer the question (why it's mainly associated with whites)
but you want to talk about 2,000 years ago, and women and gays right. not about racism, but women and gays.
ok.

"How come racism, for the most part, is still associated only with whites?"

If everyone in the U.S. read this thread that might change.

Not all racists are white. But white folk who are obsessed with shouting "Not all racists are white!" on a soap box every chance they get are often a little racist themselves. Similarly, black folk who shout "Racist white people!" every chance they get are often a little racist themselves. Oh, and I don't like the term "reverse racism". Just call it racism.

Sticking to the topic would mean sticking to the principles that founded this nation. The very same principles that proved how wrong racism was. Those wrongs continue to be perpetuated not institutionally, but by individuals themselves. Snap out of it.

I stand behind every post I've made 100% and don't blame anyone else for a word out of my mouth. How about you, pal?

I stand behind not just words, but a long life lived in healthy versions of multiculturalism without racial incidents. Not the cesspool going on in Atlanta.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! That term is BS! Racism is racism. If you look up racism in the dictionary, the definition isn't "unfair treatment or hatred of non-whites/people of color". Anyone can be racist. Anyone can be a victim of racism.
