I wouldn`t say that society teaches that blacks are, "less human," but I would for sure say that the media and well...society in general do portray blacks as more dangerous/trashier people in general.

I grew up in a school that was 60 percent black so I don`t really feel that I was indoctrinated to fear blacks : /

I understand her message but she comes off as sickeningly preachy

@darkmagic14n Know what your talking about before commenting. Euros and Native Americans mixing in N. America are Latinos?

Mestizo is a term traditionally used in Latin America and Spain for people of mixed heritage or descent such as a mixture of European and Amerindian.

Hispanic is a term that originally denoted a relationship to Hispania - an ancient designation for the Iberian Peninsula. Over time, the term Hispanic has evolved from the ancient usage, now more broadly referring to any cultural connection to Spain.

The 1970 Census was the first time that a "Hispanic" identifier was used for people with origins in Spanish-speaking countries, like Mexico, Costa Rica. Hispanic is not a race.

A latino is a person considered part of an ethnic background that is traditionally Spanish-speaking. A Latino can be of any race or combination of races: White/Caucasian, Black/African American, Asian, Native American, Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Is

google the term

"white privilege". oh before you get pissed just reading that term the concept was created by a white woman, not some minority blaming the white man (yeah I know that is what you were thinking).
if you read it with an open mind and realize the concept is not blaming you and is actually true you will learn a great deal about this society.

@peakingo:

hispanics/latinos are a mixed race consisting of european and native american

your theory about the island of hispanoila is false and comical. at least 1/2 the island of hispanoila is black (descendents of african slaves)

To everyone saying that Latinos aren`t white. You`re wrong-most of us are. Unless you have a high percentage of another races bloodline. Latinos like myself whose family came from Spain and Portugal are in fact DRUM ROLLLL.... Of European descent. This holds true for many people born in Mexico, Central America, The Caribbean, and South America.

The reason we are led to believe so otherwise is the US adoption of the word Hispanic, which traditionally refers to those from the Island of Hispaniola, which many Latinos aren`t from. Never the less, it was done so for the US Census to better organize population percentage and sociological distinction of the Latino population in contrast to other races.

This cracked me up, I totally remember being that age and thinking I actually knew things about life or the world.

I agreed with her initial point about s/hitheads wearing t-shirts. Just the fact that someone would sell a t-shirt like that is disgusting.

Other than that she seems to have a very narrow world view. I grew up in the US in a school system where white kids are the minority. And I`ve spent a lot of time outside the US in places where I was part of a tiny minority. My point is there are plenty of non-black males in the world who have been victims of racism. No one "is Trayvon Martin", not even the presidents imaginary son. But all the rest of the BS she spewed about who she thinks I am is laughable.

Oh honey-child? That thing in your nose makes you look TOTALLY seriously credible! Perhaps a few face tattoos to go with it, and some skull bumps...

Why are so many people hating this girl ?...she may be slightly off the mark but her heart and motives are right on target and most of what she says is intelligent and right. She has the courage to announce her convictions and she cared enough to speak out when too many people say nothing either because they don`t have the guts to do so or they don`t care and they can`t be bothered. We need more people like her. In the 1700`s Edmund Bourke said "All that is needed for evil to triumph is the silence of a few good men" and it holds true today. It is both ludicrous and scary how that so many people are led astray by their automatic free-floating hate that they have totally lost sight of the wisdom this girl is sharing and are motivated to be mean about her.....*SIGH*...my faith in humanity was briefly restored by this young woman and then dashed by the many mean-minded posts below...I`m glad to see some people got the point she was trying to make !!!!

I want a hoody that says "I am Kony". Just to show how liberal and accepting my world view is. Hey man, who am I to judge right? There but for the grace of a white middle class upbringing go I. Except I had a White Lower Class upbringing on a farm in the Goddamn Middle of nowhere, and yet people see me, a white Christian male (ostensibly the only unprotected class in the Country) and assume that I am somehow at the heart of their problems.

Frankly, I have heard and seen enough. I`m through with this self deprecating apologist persona that society is striving to thrust on me. I am accused of complicity in every injustice and transgression history has meted out and I am expected to put up a show of solidarity with minorities against my ow. Brothers. Well you know what? [email protected] that. I am free to be who I am. Whom I choose to agree with is my prerogative and it isn`t my job to make you feel good about yourself.

I don`t believe any white person, who wear shirts reading "I am Trayvon Martin" or "Troy Davis" are mistaking themselves as being black themselves. And I think the message is appropriate for anyone to adopt, because the real lesson of discrimination is, if it can happen to one, it can happen to any of us. So a white person`s shirt/hoody is not making light of someone`s traumatic experiences: it`s just a symbol of solidarity with our neighbors, period.

Ugh - this is why I am glad I left academia. I don`t think they can even tell how horribly smug and self-righteous they sound. I wonder if I could get a grant to study a tone of voice that makes other people want to smack the speaker upside the head.

Maybe you little girl were taught to be a hidden racist with a liberal mindset.

I was taught to love everyone as a brother, by Jesus Christ, with a compassionate conservative mindset.

Go ahead and believe you`re `enlightened` now, but you aren`t. The black people supporting Trayvon don`t give a sh|t about reconciliation or integration and likely never will. White people will always be seen as `The Man` and you can`t change that.

You`re naive in the extreme to think anything a white person says will heal this divide, the divide has to be broken by those within and they won`t do it because they profit too much from keeping the divide alive.

She has a point. White privilege goes a long way in America. You will never be harassed by police, or scrutinized in the same manner by society, simply by the virtue of being born white. You may disagree with me, and that`s fine. But your experience of what being a minority is, and what mine are, will be vastly different, only because I am an American Minority. It is important, as she highlighted, to show outrage when people, no matter what ethnicity, are shown injustice. To identify with their struggle, albeit with good intentions, would be a falsehood. We want to believe in the best, and that everyone truly has a level playing field, but that is simply not the case. But if we keep pushing, keep persevering through the finger pointing, the xenophobia, and stand together as a nation of people. We just might get somewhere.

I think people are ignoring some key facts of the incident in order to make it more racially charged. Having said that, I also think this commentary is both dangerous and ill-informed. But what do I know, I`m just a middle class white-boy raised in a brown skin hatin` society.

No, this is how I treat stupid, smug, arrogant little twats. You will notice that I almost never flame anyone here who hasn`t flamed me first. Characters in post are another matter. If they come across as stupid, smug, arrogant little twats, I will be more than happy to point out that they`re stupid, smug, arrogant little twats, just like this stupid, smug, arrogant little twat.

1) she has some great points
2) those points are extremely idealistic and some just will never fit into reality
3) stereotypes exist for a reason
4) stereotypes also screw the majority into a generalized poo pile

That was a broad generalization, but I seen it!

I`ve seen a bunch of my white friends, get chastised by blacks when they supported Trayvon.

Example: White person: I feel sorry for Trayvon. I am Trayvon Martin.

Black person`s reply: Shut up cracker. You don`t know what it`s like. You ain`t Trayvon.

"but I don`t understand her argument for why I`m like Zimmerman just because I`m not black"

Because if you`re not black, black people hate you for not being black and supporting Trayvon.
