    I think the poster assumed it was being racist because there was a gun and drugs involved. Had a quick skim of the article, but didn`t see anything about race mentioned.

    I guess it`s racist if one believes that inner city youths are only one color or ethnicity- a hell of an assumption, ans a false one at that.
    I do not see a dateline on this section of the newspaper, but Cabrini Green has been non existent for about a year now, so there is no telling how old this article is.

    I disagree with people saying that this isn`t racist. It is racist to assume that "inner-city" means black. Of course, that`s probably not what the poster meant. God knows what that was.

    I know (from experience) that cabrini green is known as the "projects of Chicago" and populated by mainly African Americans. I have no idea about Watts, but I would assume the same thing. I still agree that this post has little to do with race as the average reader would not know that.

    This isn`t racist, race isn`t even mentioned. It`s not making any unfair assumptions based on race (stereotyping), or positing that one race is inferior in status to another (actual racism).

    Just... stop it.

    why does everyone always assume that something isn`t race motivated?

    by everyone I am mostly talking about the dominant culture in America that is so out of touch with whatis and is not racism that they hardly recongize it when it is. This article may or may not be racist, but it is hard to ignore the reasoning behind it and the implications it makes.

    I think it is time for white people to stop trying so hard to convience everyone that racism is dead and start accepting that they are the only ones that feel that way and that their point of view is not inherinttely the right one or what is normal.

    it is THEIR point of view, not "the truth" or "the way it really is".

    the fact that whites make those two statements over and over it proof enough that they are blind to the fact that institutional racism is alive, well and more accepted now then they believe it to be.

    Thelonius - You can act in a racist manner while claiming racism doesn`t exist (maybe you`re in denial or you just don`t realize why what you`re saying is offensive).
    Maybe, as a white person, you aren`t racist so you assume that no other white person is, that doesn`t mean racism doesn`t exist.

    @Armauld: It`s quite possible that jamie76 mixed his metaphors, or liquor, or whatever, but what he said was that white people need to accept that they are the only ones that feel that racism is dead. Now certainly you can act in a racist manner while claiming that racism is dead. But rarer is the case where you actually think/believe that racism is dead and simultaneously act upon racist impulses.

    I`m not saying that cognitive dissonance doesn`t exist, but what is more common are people who do like you said. Proclaim the absence of racism but know they don`t like other races. I hope that clears up my statement about jamie76`s comment. People that truly feel that racism doesn`t exist are either (racists in a state of cognitive dissonance) (or non-racists).

    The racists or near racists I have known knew full well what they didn`t like and weren`t trying to hide it.

    There`s nothing racist about that. "Inner city" has nothing to do with race. The only people I`ve ever met that think only blacks/hispanics/etc live in an area considered to be the "inner city" are those who grew up in the middle of nowhere, mainly small midwest towns...

    First of all, if you actually read the newspaper, it mentions teens in the Cabrini Green housing projects. Are you ignorant enough not to know what 96% of the race of people there are? Seriously. Because that`s just your ignorance showing.

    Secondly, THE FLUCKING ONION! Are you ignorant of what that means? Seriously? Because that`s a whole different level of sad.

    Are people trying to claim that drug and drug-related crime isn`t rampant in America`s inner cities?

    Look, this is funny because it`s TRUE. Which is what the Onion does so well. So call it racist, call it whatever you want, but it`s sadly also quite accurate.

    Even if this is fake, it`s true for most teens. Any system used to weigh drugs is fairly well known amongst youth.

    Ounces and grams anyone?
