    "If there`s one person who`s oppressed...If there`s one person who`s descriminated against, we`re not gonna make it as a people."

    Unless it`s a white guy then you bash him all you want and if he protests you can call him a biggot and ruin his career.

    While it`s irrational for that guy to instantly write this guy off just because he`s black, he does have a few points in that black people often act like the world owes them something.

    Furthermore, while his opinion might be labeled retarded, (especially in the PC capitol of the world, America) everyone is in fact entitled to their own opinion.

    The other black dude needs to stop getting out of his face and taking poo all personal.

    So free speech is only when you agree with it?

    If he has an unpopular opinion he isn`t entitled to speak his mind like every other member of that panel?

    I often wonder what the outcry would be a "W.E.T." station or a "Caucasian" magazine.

    I live in the south and I must say, I have met my fair share of black people who seem to feel that I owe THEM something because of their history. Or just don`t like me because of what other white people have done/said.

    I didn`t own any slaves, nor did my parents/grandparents. Don`t be mad at me, I`m not racist.

    To each his own I suppose.

    He doesn`t have a problem with hispanics, asians, arabs, whites, native americans, or indians.... just with blacks.

    This leads me to think he`s had some interaction with blacks to cause his perception they act as though "we owe them something".

    What could lead him to this belief?
    NAACP which promotes assitance to blacks only?
    Affirmative Action that promotes blacks in the workplace based on skin color not on skill or experience?
    College Recruitment that has to take "X" number of blacks regardless of their grades?
    Numerous tuition grants for black students only?
    Federal low interest loans and programs to assist black business owners?

    Nah.... those things can`t be racist... they aren`t pro-white.

    "I don`t like him because he`s black"

    Prejudice.


    "I don`t like him because his individual opinions are idiocy incarnate"

    Not prejudice.


    So, for example, if I dislike someone because his arguments like "some black people..." have no validity.

    I`m not at all prejudiced against him. I didn`t dislike him prior to his opinion. I didn`t assume his opinion. I didn`t PRE-JUDGE (hence PREJUDice) his character based on features unrelated to it.

    I just judged him afterwards, and I judged him to be a unlikable, low IQ`d bigot, because he makes stupid statements incongruous with rational choices, and I dislike that.

    That`s neither discrimination, nor prejudice. Look up the words.

    Out of all the black americans I interact with, very few have taken the stance that we owe them something.

    The only common trend that I have heard is that black americans the `black culture` is holding back social progress, for a various number of reasons.

    As for this guy, as with everyone else, you do have the right to freedom of speech, but other also have the right to speak against you and judge you for your speech.

    @Gerry1of1:
    You`re confusing being black with `underrepresented minority`. Affirmative action and the like applies to people that came up from circumstances that left them disadvantaged compared to the rich people from the suburbs. You will not see rich black men/women benefiting from affirmative action. As for the NAACP there`s nothing wrong with members of a race banding together to discuss race issues and combat racism. Loans and the like are need based. It just so happens that black are in need due to hundreds of years of outright oppression, discrimination and slavery. The day blacks do not become underrepresented or disadvantaged is the day those programs are removed.

    As for now, keep living with that white entitlement attitude. Best of luck in the workplace, where a Mexican, Asian or African-American will "TEK UR JERB" by simultaneously working hard to overcome personal obstacles and outwork you.

    He didn`t "write off" the guy because he was black, just that he didn`t like him based on what he looked like.
    He was reacting to previous encounters with black people and extending that to a new situation (seeing someone for the first time)
    To say prejudice is wrong superficial and ignoring and trying to hide an important human characteristic. We need to judge a situation instantly for danger (having retained this throughout our evolutionary path).
    What would have been "ah crap another tiger trying to kill me" has become, in modern day "ah crap another black guy who wants a handout" (a negative feeling about a new situation).
    I`m not saying that is an accurate depiction of black people, but it reflects this guy`s experience - to deny him the right to feel that is denying him a natural human emotion.

    What we need to do is improve future interations between races, not lambast someone who has had bad interactions.

    (It`s an article from Cracked.com)

    See the very first talking point.

    We`re all a little bit racist, and while I don`t agree with what he`s saying, at least he has the courage to speak his mind. Besides, as the article I linked demonstrates, we`re hopelessly unaware of our own prejudices. For all we know - and we know quite a lot - the women and man at the table are also prejudiced to black men, but they either do not discriminate (as in, actually perpetuating their implicit attitudes) or they do so at a level that we are all complicit with.

    Again, I do not condone his judgement neither do I intend to defend it, but while we`re not being prejudiced in our own disfavor, we may still be slightly irrational.

    I live in a city with people that come from all over the world and i can say that black people here are the one that give us less problems. They work a lot and they are never involved in crimes. I think that the problem for your country is that you have created a ghetto for black people and they so react creating they own society.

    There`s people who are prejudiced in this world because they were raised that way and there are some who are prejudiced because they have had a bad experience or two and base all of their opinions on a race on those experiences...this guy obviously had a bad experience and has formed his opinions on blacks based off of that, which is wrong. I think one problem people make and it starts this debate is that some people don`t like certain aspects or parts of a culture of a segment of a race population and assume all are that way. I don`t hate white people but I dislike white trash idiots and their lifestyle, I don`t hate blacks but I dislike ghetto trash idiots and their lifestyle..I think people need to understand all races have desireable and undesireable characteristics of their culture and people that dislike it need to be clear on what they dislike instead of just saying they hate a race in general.

    alk3v "It just so happens that black are in need due to hundreds of years of outright oppression, discrimination and slavery."

    Yeah....40 years ago. The average black in the U.S. is middle class now. I live in a building with black people, so we have the same housing. We hold the same kinds of jobs at the same pay scales. We drive the same types of cars. Where is the oppression?

    As for NAACP - if I had an all white group promoting an all white agenda you`d call it a Klan Ralley.

    Anything that promotes one race over another is "RACIST". Even if you think they do good work, it`s still racist.

    As for the slavery thing, there hasn`t been a slave in this country in 150 years. It`s time to get over it. No one alive today was sold to a plantation so why does he deserve special consideration for what his great great grandfather went through?

    "Affirmative action and the like applies to people that came up from circumstances that left them disadvantaged compared to the rich people"

    Affirmative action is about imposing racial equality. It is not about income. Poor white people do not benefit from affirmative action. A "rich" black person will have the same benefit when trying to get a job at a place where blacks are underrepresented as a "poor" black person.

    "It just so happens that black are in need due to hundreds of years of outright oppression, discrimination and slavery."

    That is the exact mentality the guy in the video was referring to. You shouldn`t take into consideration the hardships of prior generations when discussing equality. What about immigrants from Africa? Do they need help because of slavery?

    50 years ago there was a definate need for Affirmative Action. It corrected a social inbalance where blacks and other races could not get into schools and would never be considered for better housing and jobs perpetuating a cycle of poverty.

    But those days are over. It is time to stop affirmative action. If people are EQUAL they should be treated as such... not give preferential treatment. Opportunity should be based on skill, experience, and whether you have earned it or not.

    THAT is equality.

    I don`t care if this is a troll or not, there are plenty people who have that opinion. Speaking as a minority ethnic person myself (white), where I live, about 70% of the population are black/brown, and if anybody mentions it people look at you like you just landed from Mars. And I`m talking about south London, England. I know of one other household in my street of white English people, the rest are all different "minorities".

    The premise of the show, by the way, is that those 5 people have to vote on which of 5 strangers will get $25,000.

    It was not a successful show, so I`m guessing the blatant racism was scripted in a sad attempt to garner controversy ratings.

    I think one big thing the guy forget to mention in his arguement is that he is basing his opinion on a stereo type and that what people need to realise is that ALL stereo types don`t always apply to everyone who is being stereo typed, but ALWAYS are based on some sort of factual evidence that is layed out by the majority of the group of the said stereo-typed people. so what I`m saying is, if I don`t like you cause your black, it`s not my fault, it`s the fault of most of the black people, and the only way you can break free of that is to establish yourself as not belonging to the majority of your group through your own actions. but if you parade around all caulky(<-intentional) and egotistical, prefering to look good and lose rather than look bad and win, you WILL be stereotyped as and treated as, nothing more than a GODDAMN NAGGER!!!

    @ auburnjunky - your wife`s professor is right. It`s the law in California.
    When Hispanics became the majority population about 6 or 7 years ago, the state mandated the word "Minority" was not to be used in text books or in any legislature. Replacing it with the phrase "people of color". You see, whites became a `minority` and no one was going to let them get social benefits earmarked for `minorities` so they changed it.

    In effect "People of Color" means anyone but a white guy. All this time I thought I was beigie-pink now it turns our I`m transparent.

    Sometimes people develop their racism based on an over abundance of stereotypical people they have encountered.

    Unfortunately, The `colored` races of America have not melted in well and it goes back to our history of segregation/slavery here.

    As long as people continue to self-segregate themselves and reinforce their culture`s stereotypes things will not change.

    So what? I don`t like black people either. They are hardly ever nice to me, and I`ve never become friends with a black person. I don`t fit with them. I think it is human to stay with people that look similar to you.
    And yes, racism will continue to exist if we think we `own them something` or if they keep thinking that they are `owed`. Reverse racism is not the answer either.

    There`s a lot of way left or right field opinions on this specific circumstance. Which everyone is entitled to. But I firmly believe that opinions should be well researched, well thought out, and well executed in a very deliberate and specific manner. "I don`t like black people" is neither deliberate, or well thought out. First of all, no one on this planet is BLACK. Black is the absence of color. As well as no one is WHITE. White is the overwhelming of color. The human skin tone is a wide spectrum ranging from very very deep dark brown, to very very light peach or pinkish. None is absolute and there for an absolute opinion is moot. That being said, there are people of every race who do not have an qualms with making their race as a whole look bad. He could of said "I`ve personally had a bad experiences with several people of his race in my life, so I`m initially hesitant about him, but without knowing more, I can`t make an accurate opinion." Or, keep his damn mouth

    I should also add that I`ve lived in Texas for 20 of the 24 years of my life. I lived in NYC for 3 and France for 1. I`ve met people from every angle of life. And while there is a solid number of hooligans in Texas (from any race you can imagine), most of the people are good natured, kind hearted, and certainly more hospitable than anywhere else I`ve lived.

    "All" black people act as if they are owed something in about the same way that "all" white people are rich, racist plantation owners. White people screeching about being a minority (for a small local area) in the 21st century is a pretty hilarious thought, too. "This reverse racism lynching me, guys!" We white people are a silly folk.

    Bwahahahaha! Man typical kanaka (equivalent to redneck for Polynesians). Don`t use that term in Hawaii unless your ready to fight. Well as a native Texan who moved to Hawaii 28 years ago this is a riot to me. Shocking to all those on TV how a Polynesian could be so prejudice. What a surprise huh.

    The bruddah has probably been well indoctrinated since birth by his parents. Probably not uncommon for him to say effin haoles (whites or Hispanics) or effin popolos (blacks) all the time. I have no doubt his parents trained them well. As most local boys have an attitude to begin with on how their islands were taken away by the freaking haoles.

    BTW to which he noted how blacks feel like they are owed!? Interesting since Hawaiians go around with the same attitude here. Such as Hawaiian Sovereignty issue and free government entitlements to land as in Hawaiian Homelands. Which is in itself corrupt and screwing it`s own race out of free land.

    If you said that you didn`t like Asians to an Asian, they wouldn`t call you stupid, they`d probably just laugh about it. I think thats what the Polynesian guy was talking about, about African-Americans having some form of entitlement, or at least getting their panties in a bunch when you say something that`s racial.

    The people of Hawaii have got more money from the government than the black people for reparations, hands down. How ever, percentage is a right that any person can judge. I myself would`ve gone with him to dismiss this fact. There is no right answer. People have their opinion. It`s not raciest.

    Calling him "un and ill informed" on his own personal experiences and beliefs makes the black guy look stupid instead. The equivalent would be if you had a bad experience with a restaurant`s staff and yet when you voiced this the manager proceeded to come out and call your opinion about his staff both "un and ill informed." You would think he was a complete drating idiot and your opinion of the staff would not have gotten any better.

    I don`t know what part of Texas he was in, but when I visited San Antonio I have to say the preponderance of southern black people with absolutely NO chip on their shoulder (especially being from the south) and the receptiveness of people overall to my generally gregarious and outgoing disposition was a memorable breath of fresh air.

    In any case the point I think he was trying to make (if it was more than an emergency fallback) could have been better served simply by employing some pithy remark like "I`m pretty sure this young man probably has more opportunity at free money than anybody else on the panel."

    If semi-black on the right still wanted to get into it,

    "Ummmmm... does being Jewish change that for you? Is that why you`re so pissed off?"

    @ Suicism: Thank you for that.

    For the record, this "black" man has never taken a single handout except food stamps for a two-month period in the early 1980`s when I was between jobs.

    I have served my country and its people in both military and civilian roles. I was accepted into college on my academic merits, SAT & ACT scores, not "because I`m Black".

    I was always dumbfounded by people who lived in my neighborhood, and attended the same public school I did actually thought I was going to get to go to college for free, simply because I`m "black".

    I was the vanguard of the second generation of my family to attend college, my father holds several patents, as a result, my family lived quite comfortably... also a result I was not eligible for many grants and scholarships... My folks didn`t pay for college for me either... I worked all the way through, and paid for it myself

    I went to grad school in Ireland... n

    ...no affirmative action for me there, nor would I have exploited it if there had been.

    Too many people here who know NOTHING about the circumstances that led to Affirmative Action coming into existence, but are ready to step up and complain how it isn`t "fair" to whites.

    Too many people here that assume that obnoxious stereotypes are the benchmark for an entire group of people.

    Too many people here that aren`t willing to step up and take responsibility for the crappy lives they lead... it`s easier to blame Black Americans, because "they all act like their owed something".

    News Flash: The U.S. doesn`t owe me SH*T.

    The U.S. DID however, owe something to the generations that preceded mine as far as making the playing field more level is concerned. It`s because of THAT struggle that I was able to create the life I have.

    "Some of you need to stop listening to Rush Limbaugh and try TALKING to people who don`t resemble you"

    Clearly there are plenty of black people who are hard working, who serve their country, and who do not expect handouts.

    Having said that, some of us live near government projects, which are the hub of government handouts. Entire apartment buildings full of people that the government has made dependent.

    One of my best friends is black. His mother was single with several children, and I understand her need for federal assistance. Across the street, however, you find people who clearly do NOT need assistance, but just chill in their public housing, sell drugs, and collect unemployment. It is a cultural and generational problem, and until they snap out of it, they will never rise above it.

    I for one give that guy props for saying it like it is rather than how we`d like it to be. An ideal PC world is a joke and will never work in our lifetime. you know why, because there`s always going to be low-brow idiots who just don`t get it. If you guys truly believe we evolve then there must be some point in evolution when one set is more evolved than the other and thus would make that one set "better" than the other. It doesnt have to be a set race, it can just be the lower and upper half of each race ( the more evolved, and the less evolved), where the upper half would accept each other and the lower half still finds faults. I guess in order for racism to go away, we`d all have to think and act alike and that`s incredibly unlikly anytime soon for a species like ourselfs.

    Everyone`s a little bit racist; it`s normal. It`s not normal to hate a race and not give them a chance, but to percieve someone as different based on race is totally normal.

    I believe everyone should act as an ambassador for their race. That`s how I treat people of different races; as ambassadors. And I`m sorry, but the more ambassadors from a specific race f*ck up, the harder it is for me to like them. I still give them a chance, but bear in mind, when I think of your race, I`ll think of you. Leave a good impression.
