    Sigh. Racism. Look, most of the time it is the "older gen" that retains this way of thinking. Let`s just keep educating our young, make sure they grow up realizing it is wrong (both sides) and eventually these poos will go away and we can move on. The problem with any news outlet covering these things are their desire to get the big money stories which is a white person treating a person of color in some crappy way (as seen in this video) but none of them ever look at the larger problem, the problem that crosses all colors. Racism isn`t just white towards black. Instead of blowing up these horrible small instances we should start a world wide educational campaign. Weed those bitches out. Let`s move on.

    One person. Obnoxious person, bully, probably with a few dumb, weak fellows. It is clearly not a common situation, or we would see this every day.

    How so we have a government funded organization called La RazaTranslation: The Race and things like BET and Tell me is BET required to meet a quota of white people hired?

    Great, One extremely rare "Jim Crow" racist supervisor, gives the liberal media fodder to blame all whites for racism. Never mind the fact that there are blacks just as racist, if not more so, than this idiot.

    This is not a "big story", this was idiocy by a single individual. I guess the MSM is desperate to distract the public from the growing revelations about Bowe Bergdahl and the illegal deal Obama made for him.

    I`m guessing all the previous posts are from white people...
    I find this persons attitude completely despicable and totally reprehensible. Anything other speaks volumes.
    I agree with CynicalGamer that an improvement in education will possibly root out many prejudices, but these stories, however rare, must be told.

    What I find bizarre is all the "white guys" are getting affirmative action and other minority protections removed from the law books.

    Just in time for them to become a minority. I`m sure that won`t bite them in the ass anytime soon.

    To the posters below who think this is the rare exception, that this almost never happens, you`re partially right and partially not. Sure, it`s rare (but certainly not nearly as uncommon as you`d think) for things egregious to go on, but essentially the same things goes on right in the light of day. Consider the recent spate of voter access laws passed in red states, school voucher laws, etc.

    I hired a cleaner today, a black guy called Derek, he was brilliant, we got on like a house on fire,
    but he said he was called to a place two roads from me, to do the same, basically give it a clean, the guy as I was told was a Muslim chap, and as he saw he was a black chap, refused to let him in
    I have heard this a lot of times, racism is not just a whitey thing ya know
    Indians - (from India) hate Pakistanis, look back to 1947. I could waffle on on but you know my gist.

    Ferdyfred is right but it only comes to light when some crazy white guy makes racist remarks to a black guy. I has to be that exact scenario to get attention.
    I`ve seen it go the other way and the person (white) on the receiving end of the racism is laughed out of the building because it`s widely known that only white people can be racists.

    I`ve heard similar all the time in the work place ... except it was blacks saying it to whites (which isn`t racist cuz it`s against the white race ... which is a non-race, the absence of a race if you will ... 3/5ths of a race?

    I have had to deny a supported position to a white kid who needed it, in favour of a black kid who openly stated he did not want the job.

    One day he threatened one of my lads with a weapon, and I got him bounced out of the service.
    He was allowed to return after a 2 week suspension.
    I protested that none of the others would be allowed to stay after an incident like that, so why should he, just because of his skin colour?

    I judge people on their heart not their skin.
    I have removed white kids from the service for similar things, and they were not given a second chance.
