And Satan lobs a left-handed complement that smacks Byz in the face so hard she falls to the floor! Thanks, bud. I’m glad you read before you jumped my butt!
FreakFreely – about racism being “shit on everybody’s plate, it’s just a matter of who has to eat it.” is true enough. It’s a very open club and I think, at one time or another, all of us have participated in it or been the recipient of it.
Archer – thank you. That is my point. It doesn’t matter WHAT color you are if you hate someone else for their color, you are practicing racism.
Feynn – I’d love them to do so! I’d like to read some explanations for this particular phrase. And yes, you should try to save me from going mad; I’m a massive bitch when I’m in “going mad” mode and NO ONE wants to see that!
Surgoshan – well, okay, admitting you have a problem is the first step but racism isn’t a “white only” club. That’s a side line to my bitch. And by calling a situation of another race against a white as “reverse racism” is actually defeating the purpose.
pepperlandgirl – AH! We meet again in my thread! YOU, the woman I’ve been simulposting with in another thread! So… I see you are basically a Nazi twit and you hate your own sex! Well, we will have much to discuss at the next “I’m an opinionated bitch” meeting!
Milossarian – you are so formal I feel I must return in kind. (Your in this case should have been you’re) but anyway… “strive for semantic specificity in the OP” is just a wonderful phrase. Really. But racism isn’t specifically semantic, that’s the issue. Anyone of any race, color or creed can be racist.
nebuli –Hmmm. Interesting idea as that would truly be the reverse of racism. But I think you are getting very close to the idea of affirmative action and I don’t think we should debate that issue here. Start another thread on that issue.
Lexicon – oh, now wait a minute! You sandwich this “If someone doesn’t get hired because of their race, for any reason, it is racism.” between two other valid points. What do you mean by this comment?
Larry Borgia – the problem with that is that I think the opposite. I don’t see black/white/Hispanic when someone uses the very word “racism”. What I see is someone thinking that they are superior because of their race identity. If you see “white” against all comers than that is you. It isn’t me. I look white but I’m not. And I guess, for the most part, I resent how “racism” has come to mean “white looking people” against “anyone not white looking”. It just chaffs my ass.
Sneevil – let me make this very clear you galoot (please, go look this up!) I’m not “grasping” for anything. Reverse discrimination has the exact same problem. But hey, why don’t you go talk to God and let us know what He thinks? And FWIW, I would suggest you stay away from me, in this and other threads, because I’ll be frank: I don’t like you. You are an ass who thinks you can just run in with your God stuff nine times out of ten. Just stay the hell away from me and I won’t crucify you. JFYI.
