    There are two types of racism. The one we know and hate that makes the news, and the one that people will never say out loud and ends up online.

    There will always be racism, just as there will always be people who hate for no reason. Not much we can do about it. icon_sad.gif

    What fucking assholes! Maybe they should look up who they are fucking talking about first before jumping to conclusions.

    From Wickapedia
    Marco Antonio Muñiz, known professionally by his stage name Marc Anthony, born in New York City to Puerto Rican parents Guillermina, a housewife, and Felipe Muñiz, a musician and hospital lunchroom worker

    And like it or not, Mexicans and South Amercians have more right to be in this country then all the fucking people whose ancestors migrated here from the other side of the fucking world.

    Perhaps because there is nothing more that needs to be said?

    I don't think anyone thinks there's no racism in America - or any other country in the world.
    That said.
    What the hell is wrong with those people?
    What are they offended by? It's theater.
    At least the majority of the crowd seemed to enjoy his rendition.

    Agreed. There's racism in Canada, too, although it seems to be less than in the US (some of the racism up here is between non whites). I posted this topic because I've been reading a fair amount of denial by some posters.

    At any rate, I'd like to apologize to my American friends if it came across as putting the US down. It's a rather magnificent country, and doesn't do anything in a subdued way, which can be a great strength, I think. icon_redface.gificon_redface.gificon_redface.gif

    I feel a little soul searching is good for everyone, no matter what the country..

    The same crowd that thinks a Black doesn't belong in their White House. Any bets about how many of them are political Right Wingers and Tea Baggers? I suspect not a lot of Liberals.

    It appears that most of the twitters on that public shaming site are very young...as in teenagers. So, it doesn't surprise me that their words stem from a lack of maturity and heightened stupidity.

    Broseph saidWe're going to have racism for the next 300 years or however long until we turn into the Star Trek world utopia and have Starfleet Command in San Francisco.

    Oh it will happen!

    EDIT: I forgot to say fuck those racist assholes. Fuck them all to hell.


    Actually, star trek is meant to be an allegory for racism in contemporary times, the vulcans are the chinese, the klingons are the africans, the cardassians are the persians etc lol

    It's quite likely, that if we do encounter other alien humanoids in the future, they or we will have differences in level of advancement and there probably be racism then too.

    just gotta accept that people will always be different and some people will always be idiots about it.
