I notice I've come across quite a few people who make openly racist statements only to later respond with the statement that their wife, girlfriend, etc.. is so and so race or ethnic group so how in the world could they be racist.

Is this the new version of the age old " some of my best friends are so and so " The license to make racist remarks.

Yes, its the racial scapegoat of the 21st century. That or the person believes that they are now an expert and an "honorary" member/representative the other race.

I'm racist as hell, but I'm starting to think importing me a conservative lady from Latin-American or Asia might be a better idea than dealing with these crazy American women. They are nothing but insecure attention-whores, who only care about themselves. They need constant reaffirming that they are desirable. Bunch of hoes with daddy complexes who think their only asset is their vagina, which they spread around to make themselves feel important, regardless of if they are in a relationship or not.

I have an uncle who imported his wife from Guatemala. He is very racist, and sexist. He treats her like she is a total idiot, and that her only role in life is to mother his kids. His wife is actually incredibly sweet. And I think she is really smart too, and she is a great cook. She always has bananas at their house from the company that owns like all the banana farms in her native country of Guatemala(I think its Chiquita?).

Do you mean racist as in

"a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others."

Or are you talking about sterotyping? " a set of inaccurate, simplistic generalizations about a group that allows others to categorize them and treat them accordingly"

Lou Dobbs is married to a woman of Mexican descent, and he hates Mexicans.

This is so very sad. I have seen this "married to a racist" phenomenon happen a few times in several different racial/ethnic combinations. But it is really sad when there are children involved.

Yes, 'cuz it doesn't matter how a person really lives. What matters is Acceptable Political Beliefs.

Orthodoxy trumps orthopraxy.

can you give us examples of where you have seen this? BTW, I hope you realize each of us have some prejudices, even you.

Does he hate Mexicans or illegals? Our grandson in law is hispanic (1/2 anyway) and his whole family hates illegals. I will add they are all very conservative in their thinking about everything.
