I have been wondering about why Whites are racists, and no other race is? Why not except all as equals and leave it at that.
You are what you are . Attitude is everything. It also does change evry way of thinking.
Like the saying who are what you eat,you are judge by your friends that you choose to hang with. Only you can change this.





Michael Richards makes his point... And whether we like it or not, he is telling the truth.

Michael Richards, better known as Kramer from TVs Seinfeld, does make a good point.

This was his defense speech in court after making racial comments in his comedy act.

He makes some very interesting points...

Someone finally said it. How many are actually paying attention to this?

____

There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, etc.

And then there are just Americans. You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction.

You call me 'White boy', 'Cracker', 'Honkey', 'Whitey', 'Caveman'... And that's OK...

But when I call you, Nigger, Kike, Towel head, Sand-nigger, Camel Jockey, Beaner, Gook, or Chink ... You call me a racist.

You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you...
So why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?
You have the United Negro College Fund.

You have Martin Luther King Day.

You have Black History Month.

You have Cesar Chavez Day.

You have Yom Hashoah.

You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi.

You have the NAACP.

You have BET...

If we had WET (White Entertainment Television), we'd be racists.

If we had a White Pride Day, you would call us racists.

If we had White History Month, we'd be racists.

If we had any organization for only whites to 'advance' OUR lives, we'd be racists.

We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce.

Wonder who pays for that??

A white woman could not be in the Miss Black American pageant, but any color can be in the Miss America pageant.

If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships... You know we'd be racists.

There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US ... Yet if there were 'White colleges', that would be a racist college.

In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights.
If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us racists.
You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you're not afraid to announce it.

But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists.

You rob us, car jack us, and shoot at us.

But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist.

I am proud...... But you call me a racist.

Why is it that only whites can be racists??
There is nothing improper about this email.
Let's see which of you are proud enough to send it on.
I sadly don't think many will.
That's why we have LOST most of OUR RIGHTS in this country.

We won't stand up for ourselves!

BE PROUD TO BE WHITE!

It's not a crime YET... But getting very close!

I understand the line of thinking that if whites had anything white-only then it would be seen as racist. However, I think it has to do with the "majority" and "minorities". If whites were the minority in this country then they could have White Pride, white-only colleges, etc. The reason minorities are allowed to have those things is to show that there is a sense of "equality".

The White Man's Burden
Rudyard Kipling

Take up the White Man's burden--
Send forth the best ye breed--
Go bind your sons to exile
To serve your captives' need;
To wait in heavy harness,
On fluttered folk and wild--
Your new-caught, sullen peoples,
Half-devil and half-child.

Take up the White Man's burden--
In patience to abide,
To veil the threat of terror
And check the show of pride;
By open speech and simple,
An hundred times made plain
To seek another's profit,
And work another's gain.

Take up the White Man's burden--
The savage wars of peace--
Fill full the mouth of Famine
And bid the sickness cease;
And when your goal is nearest
The end for others sought,
Watch sloth and heathen Folly
Bring all your hopes to nought.

Take up the White Man's burden--
No tawdry rule of kings,
But toil of serf and sweeper--
The tale of common things.
The ports ye shall not enter,
The roads ye shall not tread,
Go mark them with your living,
And mark them with your dead.

Take up the White Man's burden--
And reap his old reward:
The blame of those ye better,
The hate of those ye guard--
The cry of hosts ye humour
(Ah, slowly!) toward the light:--
"Why brought he us from bondage,
Our loved Egyptian night?"

Take up the White Man's burden--
Ye dare not stoop to less--
Nor call too loud on Freedom
To cloke your weariness;
By all ye cry or whisper,
By all ye leave or do,
The silent, sullen peoples
Shall weigh your gods and you.

Take up the White Man's burden--
Have done with childish days--
The lightly proferred laurel,
The easy, ungrudged praise.
Comes now, to search your manhood
Through all the thankless years
Cold, edged with dear-bought wisdom,
The judgment of your peers!

"allowed"?

Don't let 200+ years of white supremacy and white skin privilege cloud your thinking my friend. Please remember, "minorities" i.e. Blacks in America have fought, marched and gave their lives for EVERY gain toward equality they've made here since being dragged here in chains.

"Allowed" may not have been the best of terms but it wasn't meant in the context you interpreted. I couldn't think of a better term but what I meant was how minorities are "allowed" to have exclusive organizations while whites are "not allowed".

Right, because not a single white (Hispanic, Asian, etc.) has helped them in their struggle for equality.

Agreed Greymane. I never implied otherwise. The white abolitionist movement spawned a long-standing tradition of solidarity that's carried on to this very day. Be aware also the allies you mention have always accepted direction from the Black leadership toward their goal.

Yes professor Trierarch a historic fact.

Why such 'enlightened' and erudite Euro-Americans would resort to involvement in the vile practice of human enslavement and subjucation is absolutely stunning - were it not for the exploitable labor of those branded with 3/5 a person status. tsk tsk - Empire building was such nasty business.

Go ahead. Blame the dealer for white America's addictions to power and greed.
Your elitist perspective always reveals your privileged-class worlview.

tsk tsk


Don't be scared Dubya.

Actually, I think cwiga has a point. Yes, white Europeans (and later on, Americans) provided the market for slave catchers (other Africans), but both the slavers and slave catchers were driven by greed at the expense of the enslaved.

An indisputable historic reality.
As are the horrific experiences dealt out by wealthy ,supposedly 'civilized', Bible-believing American slave-owners.
