I am so shocked at this site, and the things said.... I stumbled on it when googling a trivia question answer about IQ....

****** WARNING! Very racist nasty site*******

I mean I knew people still felt this way, but so many? So venomously? So open in a public forum about it?

I've just lost a ton of faith in humanity....

UGH.
I felt tainted just by looking at that site. The sad thing is I'm not surprised. I see enough horrid comments on Facebook and other parts on the internet to know there are more racists than I'd like to believe. But it never stops making me sick.

I'm not even going to waste my time reading it, but yes...racism is more rampant than one might think. Social media has brought that to light even moreso. New York is one of the most diverse, liberal cities in the world, and we recently had subway ads put up promoting anti-muslim groups and bashing muslims.

We just had a thread recently about how many segregated proms still happen - and the uproar it causes when the students finally step up and change that.

You should see the forum for men who hate women and see them as nothing but objects of sexual satisfaction. They are equally sickening and make me cry! Luckily these people are not normal and, no matter how many it seems like there are on those sites, they ARE the exception. Not the rule. Most people are good and not so rotten with hate.

Everyone has some level of racism (in some form) in them whether they want to admit it or not, though probably (at least I hope) not to this extreme. I have never hated another person to that degree solely based on color/race/ ethnicity.

I didn't even go to that site, I have seen things like that on FB, luckily I have a good friend's list but anyone who posts hatred like that gets unfriended QUICK.

Though I do agree that that level of prejudice / racism is not the norm (thank god). But I do believe that all living things ... Not just humans exhibit some form of prejudice:

A good number of horses (ESP race horses since they are a tad more sensitive then the average horse xD) are afraid of /will avoid paint & / or light colored horses because its a throwback to when they were wild, those colored horses would draw more attention from predators to the herd.

Izze preferred if possible dogs of her breed to other dogs, it didn't even have snitching to do with play because she would (no kidding) seek out the ACD in the DP & presume to do whatever they were doing, even if that was just milling around.

I totally disagree

I think everyone probably has some level of prejudice in them but that is something that can be recognized and worked on as well.

I don't agree, I can't imagine so many of these things.... That it even happens.... And I honestly 100% do not believe I have a racist bone in my body....
In one of my bachelors class for nursing the whole class was focused on finding our hidden biases and we ALL have them if you can recognize it or not. Doesn't mean its in a mean cruel way, just that there are little things that everyone feels towards someone maybe even unconsciously.

I feel like everyone may have hidden bias's but that doesn't mean that it is race related or that everyone is a little racist, i am a mixed person and i do not believe that i have any racist feelings in me, unconscious or not, i have so many races in me it would be like being racist against myself for the most part.

Also people who may have small biases about race isn't anything compared to the people in those forums, the average person who may crack a black joke every now and than is not spreading hate like in that forum..

This article is about the Cheerio debacle (Ad with a bi racial family that people freaked over) but also has some good insight I think

http://smokinghotpolitics.com/?p=2699
I'm in a mixed race family. My parents are white and me and both of my brothers are Asian. The amount of hate for people who would mix races in a family take always shocks me.

The only good that comes from their vocal hate is you learn who you need to avoid.

Oh I don't doubt there may be things I am Bias about without even bring aware... But that's a far stretch IMO from racism...

I would never judge anyone by their appearance, period....

I'd be pretty amazed if anyone of any race with a high IQ would marry any of those people. I also enjoyed their in depth and well informed analysis of genetics. :confused:

Sadly, I'm not surprised by this at all.

I guess I need to clarify that it is against race and culture.

And I agree I don't see it as racism but many do. The how could you not feel this way or accept this etc etc.

I also didn;t read the link. If everyone is that offended its not something I need to see!!!
