Black dudes and Indians are the most racist out there, they are obsessed with white girls, specially blonde ones, and hate their own kind.

Your ranking strikes me as though you've rarely met Black-American Army soldiers that have done tours in Germany?

I've never met a single Black-American Army vet--not a single one--that didn't love Germany from their time spent there. There are a lot of mulatto children born in Germany with U.S. citizenship due to this too. I used to converse online with to mulatta women in the U.S. that had German mothers that got impregnated with them by black GI's from the U.S. and we weren't the only ones in our online group conversing that were half black and half German here in the USA.

Knowing what I do about racism and gauging from what I was taught in past Africology course a few years ago, I would say the United States would rank number one for racism. Particularly institutional racism. The state of Detroit and Gary, Indiana should be glaring examples of that. But more importantly all the businesses and industrial park development occurring outside of the traditional cities. My suspicion is that no financial loss has struck Black-America so far and wide since the end of Reconstruction.

Japan is often used as an example of a non-white racist nation, and with good reason.

I don't think Australia and Ireland would be at the top.

In my Africology course our professor viewed South Africa as the closet nation on earth to U.S. past and present. South Africa of course, has had a black president and has rich black people too.
I agree completely. I have an uncle who was station in Germany in the Marines and he said he's move back there if he could.

My bad. I completely screwed that one sentence up. I made a few edited changes above, highlighted in red italics. The second sentence still ends kind of cumbersome and probably could be edited by someone else to read more crisp and clear.

Discrimination and prejudice are not one and the same as racism. Kind of like the difference between the words empathy and sympathy.

Racism can use the tools of discrimination and prejudice though. That's why they seem the same.

Racism is the belief in the superiority of one race over another. So, if you love your black or Mexican maid but think you are racially superior to her then you're racist.

While I'm mulatto I have a prejudice against ethnic Black-American women. Usually. Not do to their race but stemming from cultural attributes I don't like. I do not feel that way about black African women from Cameroon or Brazil.

However, India does have a problem with racism or what some in Black-America would term "colorism." Black-America, Brazil, Mexico and almost all the world has that problem though.

Science has even found that males across the world tend to statistically favor light skin on women. So, feminist, sociologists, and Afrocentric scholars going to say about that in relation to their advocacy of the correctness of homosexuality? They'll reject the science about color and "being born that way" attracted to lighter skinned women right?
Racism and prejudice hurts the soul. I know for a fact that biracial people experience some of the same prejudices and racism that full Black people experience, as I have witnessed it with my own eyes as a child, and into adulthood. I will continue to defend my fellow human beings despite those who are prejudice against Black American women such as myself. Most biracial people I have met from various parts of the world have been very kind to me. Men and women across the world have a fundamental right to favor the skin tone of their choice. For some, it is light skin, for others it is darker skin. Free will and free choice is a birthright. Science has nothing to do with that.

It could possibly be that White girls just prefer Black and Indian men. Men initiate things, and women do the choosing. Given that the global population of Black and Asians, especially Indians is in the majority, Black and Indian men love their own women just fine. Relax. The sky is not falling.

I don't entirely disagree, Joy. I have no problem with science or its endless investigation of life and the physical world. But I'm a bit ambivalent about the way it is used sometimes.

Sometimes its the scientists with non-scientific agendas. But usually it is not the scientists but political interest groups. By political interest groups I mean gay advocacy groups and lobbyists, pro-black groups, white racist groups, atheists, religions, those lobbying for alcoholics and rehabs etc.

From some research carried out by psychologists or neuropsychologists, that I saw on Public TV a while back, from the data results in their studies they were coming to the conclusion that racism is even something humans are genetically wired for through an evolutionary history.

I *sigh* and cast my doubts on this. I'm very iffy about determinism in the life science excepted the chemical laws and physics that run the whole organism. Those are indeed deterministic and therefore predictable.

But when it comes to behaviors and sexual preferences I tend to think the individual's mind, through the process of development, environmentally and not just physically, is to complex and nuanced to ascribe to all genetic or biological causes.

Basically what I'm saying is I do not believe anyone is born attracted to lighter skin, the same sex, or the opposite sex. I think a lot of environmental cues are involved. A lot of cues which teach small children to discriminate.






But that's veering too far from the original question in the thread (excepted perhaps cultural/environmental settings for racism and discrimination).
