    I was having an argument with 2 guys who were trying to justify segregating gays from social hangouts like clubs and workplaces. You would think it's a no brainer but they brought up an interesting point.

    We do have classifications in the gay community. White is always promoted, we chalk it up to "preferences" but in our social groups it's much more segregated. We will always see more clusters of Latinos and Latinos and whites and whites. Also in the gay community there's an unofficial social hierarchy , first preference white, then Arab, then Latin, black and then Asian. No one talks about it but its there.

    In addition gays rarely protest against racist attacks/ civil right issues when it affects other minorities. Hence why there’s been an increasing disconnect with the gay community and why gay bashing from people like Ann Coulter is so tolerated. They felt like why should a culture that promoted racism be exempt from feeling it.


    They pointed out to me that racism in the gay community is far more tolerated compared to the straight community. Since we don't call it like we see it so why should we complain when people are racist towards us?

    I disagreed and pointed out that back in the day over 90% of the population was against inter racial marriages, that doesn't mean 90% of the population represented bad people They just needed more integration and education.

    That shut them up but it brings an interesting point are we more tolerant of racism and segregation within our culture?

    Are topics likes these streamlined on real jock. All I hear is a bunch of bitching from every race about how it's not fair or nobody likes me because I'm a minority bla bla bla. Truth is, I get hit on by more white guys than any other race. I can honestly say I have no fuckin clue what you guys are talking about haha. Some guys only date white guys and some only date black. Let people date who they wanna date and worry about something that matters... Like the olympics icon_cool.gif

    My prophesy is that the word "racism" will become almost worthless as it is more and more commonly used to describe personality traits rather than morale. Personality traits do not necessarily show a person's morals.

    Hate use to be an easy word to attribute to racism although now I wouldn't be surprised if the shade of makeup people decide to wear suddenly has an impact on someone being hateful of color. What I find sad is that those who really are racist are going to get away with it eventually as they PURPOSEFULLY wear a shade of makeup to suggest hate of skin color in a world of people who innocently wear a shade of makeup because they like the color.

    Is this streamlined in the Gay Community... I would say yes because this forum seems to be fixated on racial subject matter compared to straight forums I have been on even though those forums are more rowdier. However, I think it is taking place everywhere.

    I know what racism is and I know what it is not regardless of how you bend the definitions to fit other terms. The language of racism reads loud and clear to me because I for one am not racist. I have been made out to be racist for reasons that are subliminal although I guarantee society is catching onto them.

    I miss the peaceful days of youth when racism was not an issue that needed to even be acknowledged in my neighborhood. I had four best friends and I did not deliberately choose them by their color, it was just naturally this: Richard (Jewish), Sean (redhead white), Willie (Black), and I can't remember the other one's name, but he was of orient.

    We were best friends and worried about things like puppet shows, pizza, girlfriends, and hiking the cliffs behind our house. Those days are long gone because we have since been taught to fear eachother and I find that to blame on the smart man in politics; not the black man, yellow man, white man, brown man, or anywhere inbetween... But by the smart man in politics. Pretty damn stupid if you ask me!

    Why did they do it? POWER! Well the way I remember it as children we had more power in learning about culture from our different families and little did we know, that was not the only thing needed to make the world a better place; it also needed love and fighting racism today is NOT or NOLONGER about love... It is about greed!

    So while everyone gets all bent out of shape on who THINKS what (you are not fucking mind readers), I will just remember life during a happier time and hope that my childhood friends are doing the same. Peace.

    I was raised in the deep south...extremely rural town in SW Arkansas where blacks still refer to whites as 'massa'.

    But the racism I've seen in the gay community far exceeds what I saw in the deep south. It's fucking ridiculous. That's why I don't believe gays will ever have equal rights. The straights are more accepting than the gays.

    You're only looking online. I see it offline just as much. The gay "community" is the more intolerant of different races than any other group of people I've ever encountered.

    I got out to gay clubs all the time... I'm talking at least once or twice a week and I do just fine. I still get a lot more attention from white guys than my own (only been hit on twice by an Asian tho).... And how is it that white guys are telling minorities how hard it is for US. I'm black. I live in this skin every day and know what I experience. I know that racism exist in every culture but I personally have not felt any sting of this "hierarchy" bull i see everyone post on this site lol. and before you say it's my location, Iv been in most of the states and have had the same experiences

    I understand but he I think he means

    a. Designed or arranged to offer the least resistance to fluid flow.
    b. Reduced to essentials; lacking anything extra.


    Still makes no sense to me.

    For Adonis_001 I don't think the message is about you specifically hooking up with white guys lol.

    For the OP "Is racism mainstreamed" is a better heading

    Yes Gay culture is very racist.There's really nothing to discuss as it's a fact.
    It's something you never see discussed on TV as much as you read about it online because it's there and we all have to pretend it's not as we fight for gay rights in a world that's becoming scarily more conservative.

    However it does not give the right for someone to express racism towards a homosexual .

    You cannot justify doing something "evil" to someone just because the majority of their minority group does something "evil".

    Might it possibly be streamlined because there are fewer gay men compared to straights thus a smaller pool of people to choose from causing the problem of racism to be magnified?

    He's talking how racism is accepted as a norm in the gay community. It has nothing to do with the success rate of 1 black guy with white guys.

    He's talking about how people prefer races over other not for their personal preferences but rather because they beleive one race is inferior in some way.

    It has absolutely nothing to do with you bringing back guys from the club.
    It about imagery.

    To make it as simple as possible. Take this example

    Tyra Banks and Noami Campbell are both successful black models and both have commented how many career opportunities they have lost because of racism within the fashion industry.
