Re: Prejudice & Racism

I am too busy with my life to bother reading old ollies posts. I quit wasting time on them a long time ago.

And I can think of 'whites' that would be the same as your 'blacks'.

There are good and bad in all skin tones.

Re: Re:Racism is taught

I beg to differ, there is a difference, when a white person hates you, they hate you.  When a black person hates you, they all hate you, and they hate you all.

Re: Re:Racism is taught

What you describe Midwest is very common, known well by those having to live in  "multi-cultural" neighborhoods. If the Honky Liberals on here would venture outside their privileged gated communities and actually see the real world, they might understand. Those living in the civilized world are taught to walk away if someone says a bad word,apparently those C**ns hadn`t got the memo. Good it worked out for you and you didn`t get hurt.

Bruce and Canuck

I`ll combine your replies  Smiley Happy . Yes, I`m familiar with  "Guns, Germs and Steel" the gist if it is Europeans were lucky to have a continent that was wide instead of long, giving it a more consistent climate for farming.....Well, freezing your brass off 4 mo of the year isn`t exactly "luck". I could write a book saying those in the tropics were the ones with the advantage. No one freezes to death as many, many of the "unlucky" ones in Europe had. In the tropics there`s always something to eat, not so in the middle of winter in Europe. Canuck, to help understand non-white contributions to society. Think of a surgeon as the white guy and the nurse as being from the tropics. In an operation the surgeon can reach his own scalpel and clamp, completing the procedure without the nurse. On the otherhand the nurse couldn`t do the opperation without the surgeon. Study and explain the backward continent of modern day Africa ......that tribe has ruuuun out of excuses!!

Re: Re:Racism is taught

No I do not think there is any difference. I posted a link of a KKK member on You tube and I do not think his hate is any different than what you pose as being 'blacks' attitude.

In my vocabulary 'hate' is a word that I think of only in relation to those types. The unreasonable dislike of a whole group of people.

I can honestly say I hate no one. There are people I choose not to associate with, there are people that are a real bore to be around but I make it a point not to 'hate' I know there are good in all groups and just because one member of a group proves to be 'ignorant' I will not put all people in that group down. I know better.

Re: Re:Racism is taught

BA; I am going to assume you include me as a "Honkey Liberal" so I will post a reply.

1st there are few if any 'gated communities' in Canada. I personally know of none. I have good friends born on continents quite foreign to you. I know of lots of others that have skin pigmentation that would indicate their ancestors came from other continents.

My children live in subdivisions that have neighbours who have, or whose ancestors, have come from all corners of the world. I know many of these people have different customs than me but they are all human and they do not have any kind of mission to get all the white people.

They are humans like you and me. Their skin and/or facial features are different but their desire to live a happy peaceful life are the same as me and my family.

All this talk of how bad these 'black' people are reminds me of a neighbour who came from Europe 40 years ago. About 10 years ago a new immigrant came from the same country and moved near us.

He asked the old immigrant what the neighbours were like?

The old immigrant said "what were the neighbours like where you came from?"

New immigrant said "they were miserable and hard to get along with."

Well said the old immigrant "I think you will find them the same here."

Re: Bruce and Canuck

BA you try to be too general. If you think the 'tropics' are all 'sunshine and roses' then you should look around the world. Freezing weather can be overcome with shelter, clothes and a fire. How do you overcome 40-50C degrees and scorching sun when you have no power or no Air Conditioning?

Always have food in the tropics? Check out your map and see where Ethiopia, India and many other countries are.

Latitude does not answer all the questions you raise.

 

Now your bit about the surgeon and nurse, I happen to know a lady who was a surgical nurse and I know she would take exception to your example. The nurse is as important as the surgeon during an operation, they just have different and probably less time training than the surgeon.

The nurse I know could probably perform many surgeries quite successfully as she has learned much from her position at the surgeons elbow. Besides, one old surgeon especially, was very good at explaining what and why he was doing things as he worked. She has said many times while working at that job that it was probably better training than many surgeons got.

BTW do you know where the first heart transplant was performed?

Re: Re:Racism is taught

Hey Canuck, none of us have said all Blacks are bad....not even Craig Smiley Happy . What Midwest told you about her terrifying experience is similar to a half dozen stories I`ve heard about the town of Waterloo. I have been there a number of times and can relate as to how " they" think they own the sidewalk. I don`t look for trouble (only on here Smiley Wink) and yet don`t give them satisfaction, by crossing  the street sooner than had I intended. Your big town is probably London with 2% black. Midwest`s town of Waterloo has 13.9% blacks. She had an awfull encounter by being surrounded by animals who at that point only hated her for her colour. I`m willing to bet you`ve never had an experience like that? Animals such as that have been taught to "not take any crap off Whitey!", their family is headed up by a single mother and Pa? is in jail. With all due respect Canuck, if your nearest big town, London is 2% Black, you can`t  really say firsthand that all the rioting videos and black crime news stories we post are bunk.
