I honestly have not encountered that much racism in real life. Yes, I am a white guy, but the wife ain't a white girl). On the internet it is a whole different story.
OTOH at least here in Arizona; word is and I've SEEN it, where there are Indians from India living, people from Pakistan have the rep of living in the same areas and both groups work TOGETHER. Too busy making money I guess to have a "civil war". LOL

I tend to make far less of a distinction among idiots, though imo, it seems other ethnic groups often seem to spend far less time focusing on others than whites. I am of African descent, though not African-American. Generally speaking, I have little issues with other ethnic groups. Plenty ethnic groups stick to their own, and I have no issue with it. I generally don't care how whites feel about me either. As long as you are not in my way getting again, it matters not to me overall. I believe in maintaining my culture, while getting as far as possible in this country.

What else is, "marry another Asian," or "marry another Colombian," "marry an Indian" or even, "marry a Jew" other than a covert way of saying, "stick to our race?" --- we accept those sentiments as cultural nuances, when I personally view them as pretty blatant expressions of racism.

The desire of a Chinese mother to have Chinese culture and looking grandchildren is no different than that of a white American mother to have same.
It depends. Marrying another Colombian is not the same as saying marrying "white" because Colombians can be of all different backgrounds. Chinese is a nationality, not a so-called race. Same with Indian. It has to go further than nationality in order to become racial. When a "white" says to marry another "white," they don't care what their ethnicity is, but that they marry someone with same so-called racial features.

Word is many Dominican ladies in the US who def ARE "Black" AND "Hispanic" will only marry anglo white men. Blacks don't count, even Dom Black dudes. That smells like racism and denial of their own heritage to me.

Lots of Latinas and Asians, and even a few women of African descent such as African immigrants, Caribbeans and some African Americans are like that as well. It's just self-hatred and internalization of white supremacist culture.

make sure you put their kids into the liberal brain washing indoctrination camps that white people were put into starting in the 90s. Pretty soon you will have little asian people going around attacking people for just saying the word "black".

Dark Skinned Blacks are openly discriminated against by light skinned blacks but perhaps the most racist group is Asian immigrants. They were never taught to be politically correct or sensitive and racism is quite common in their old countries. As more and more of American population comes from Asia and the Middle East African Americans will experience more racism that is quite blantent and extreme.

What can be done about immigrants who treat African Americans with contempt?

Maybe but; decent Black DUDES who take care of business don't seem to have problems finding good ladies of any "race". It may NOT be "race" but "attitude", then that pushes many darker skin ladies towards us pasty dudes in 2014.

7. When asked what to do if their parents are poor, tell them to apply for a loan. Then do nothing to help them pay off that loan. Then do nothing to encourage businesses to hire people based on merit, not race. In other words, put forth every conceivable obstacle in the path of poor ghetto black kids, discourage them at every turn, blame them for their poverty, and when they end up joining gangs and using welfare, shrug your shoulders and say, "Well, it's their fault! They didn't work hard enough!"

Not sure how that relates to the thrust of my post, but it does confirm that it all depends on the individual.

You pasty dudes are no better, collectively, or worse for that matter, than black dudes or other dudes whom women of color abandon in favor of whites. It is only perception that matters and that, of course, is artificially manipulated.
