The one millionth of 1% of Americans with these views occupy about 60% of the space in liberals heads....very psychotic.

I don't think that it's typically 'right wingers' who think that all white people are racists.

I`m friends with a white supremacist and we`ll be spending next weekend in Gettysburg together. He`s a retired (fortunately) school teacher and he doesn`t try to hide his views from me. Just one example of his mindset is this story.
He was visiting Charleston S.C. when Dylan Roof murdered 9 black people in a church and what was my friend`s thoughts about this incident? He came home grinning ear to ear because the local officials in Charleston said they didn`t want Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson coming to their city to protest. I tried to explain that there was nothing to protest because the shooter was in jail but he wouldn`t have any of that argument because they "go everywhere" to protest he said. I asked him where they went other than Ferguson Mo. to protest and he didn`t have an answer. They flipped the field for a mass murderer and in the mind of my idiot friend the bad guys were Sharpton and Jackson, not Roof. Somehow we get along great on these Gettysburg excursions but it may be because of the beer and the weed that we tolerate each other.

My redneck family most certainly had some "racism" in it due mostly to ignorance, but most of those viewpoints have changed over the years. Typically racism is equivalent to ignorance. You dislike what you don't know, and have no dealings with. It's a primal response to feel differently about something that looks different than you. That's why freak shows exist. Not because they are racists, but because we are shocked by something that is different than us.
I so agree with this!

Like I posted earlier in another thread, I think this country's political correctness bar has been set so high, and everything can be easily interpreted as "racism" today.

I don't want to insult anybody's intelligence here, but if you (the general term) don't know the difference between stereotype and racism, then you are incapable of carry on an adult conversation, period.

My own future brother-in-law is a military officer. This person has to be one of the most political correct person I have known. Even he has said something can be easily interpreted as racism. For example, "I believe he has a chip on his shoulder, maybe due to his heritage and his unique experience as a black person." lol come on, now..

My future sister-in-law (truth be told, I love her to death because she is an incredibly strong and great woman) made a child with a black man, made a child with a Vietnamese man, n either man was there for the children. She eventually married my future brother-in-law, and somehow, according to her, white men are still the worst. They are all racists in some ways. My future sister-in-law is a white woman by the way.

My sister used to marry to a white man. Her friends never had a problem with her. But since she is now married to a black man, all of sudden, there are a lot of problems. Her Asian friends think there must be something wrong with my sister; her white female friends haven't said anything offensive, but her white male friends have said, "If you go black, we don't want you back" in a joking kind of way; some black women have problems with her too. Talking about racism, oh my God! It certainly is not just a white people's issue.

I as a mixed girl never thought "race" and "skin color" is such a sensitive issue, especially on the internet. I found white men, back men, Hispanic men, Asian men, mixed men equally attractive. If you are a hot man, you are a hot man, period. If you cannot make racial jokes, if you cannot talk about race as a grown adult, you can never solve the "racism" problem. lol

Yes, this.

If I get a hint that someone is a bad person, I distance myself...so I know some racist people, but I wouldn’t bother getting to know them well enough to know whether they go so far as to be white supremacists.

White Supremacy or White Nationalism is a slippery slope and I think I know some who could slide into that category. I know racists and I know segregationists or ethnic/racial separatists and I know vocal anti-immigration people but none have acted out like joining the KKK or neo-Nazi groups or White militias. There is one or two that have gone into or flirted with a survivalist or prepper lifestyle. All of this seems to be racially motivated and increasingly political. The only action that these people have taken (that I know of) is to spread racial bigoted views and emails on the internet. All are Trumpers, uneducated, and, sadly, some are relatives. None are friends.

Right wingers have changed over the years. I'm a Romney McCain voter and the right is disgusting now

I do not know any White Supremist, at least I don't think I do. I do know some bigots who also happen to be racist to the core.

I think most people are racist in varying degrees, and I know several people who actually believe that the "white race" is better than all others.

Note: Does that in and of itself make someone evil? Not necessarily. But the poll is not about whether it's evil to have such beliefs.

For those who care to know how the word is spelled, it's "supremacist," not "supremist."
