I think the participants of this thread should go on a speed dating excursion.

Myself excluded.

It looks so beautiful, and I still want to go so who cares
Honestly, Iceland isn't a violent nation. You would still have a few stares. If you want to go, just go for it. Iceland isn't that violent.

As to my dating criteria, because smarts, education and common morals and life goals are so important to me, I do end up dating geeks... and most of them are white. I've never had a black geek ask me out. And the only black guys that ever tried to flirt with me came onto me in purely a sexual level, so it was a no-go from the start. Sex and "charm"... that ain't what I'm looking for in a relationship.
Please. You know what you want, and it ain't black, that's for sure. Females have an interesting way of giving just the right signals to just the right types of people, while warding off "undesirables" with nothing more than a repugnant glance. But, hey, your romantic life is neither here nor there to me. Do what you do. I'm sure many a white geek will be more than lucky to have a "hot asian babe" like yourself.

I get stupid questions/comments a lot. These are the most annoying ones: "Why do you have to call yourself African-American, why don't you just call yourself American?" (Why do you care?) "Why can't Black people just get over slavery?" (Really annoying, as I myself rarely bring up slavery unless it's a conversation specifically about slavery). Any question dealing with the hows and whys of rap music as if by virtue of me being black I'm an expert on rap music. Or when they try to touch my hair because they're "curious" to see what it feels like. (I find that extremely rude, I don't like to be touched by complete strangers). But just stupid things like that. I've never had anybody verbally or physically (most people know better) attack me bc of my race.

We can not expect equality unless we treat others with the same equality.
I'm just stating the cold truth.

And the only error here is race, a red herring needlessly injected into this situation from all sides right from the very beginning; This was a case about a female stripper crying rape - nothing more.

And no I won't "tell that to Jesse and Al" Packersnut. Keep it.

Racism against whites is no joke, happens every day, and I'm afraid doesn't get the coverage it should.
I don't know a single white person (and I know a lot of 'em) who has EVER been physically attacked by a minority bc of their race. Where I live, the ones that are racist are usually white. Normally Blacks and Latinos don't even care about race enough to risk getting put in jail over it but we have places like Howard Beach (Italians, Irish, etc) where if a darker person even so much as sneezes they'll get assaulted.

I understand. But if the AA community was up in arms about it, I think the world wouldn't mind some of those same 'leaders' going out and say, 'sorry, we were a bit quick to judge'. I admire those who admit to a mistake.

Things aren't always what they seem. If a white guy attacks a black man its instantaniously suspected as a hate crime.

Further, I dont believe your post for one second.
