    If a black person thinks that blacks are inferior to whites, that is racism.
    It says it in any dictionary when you look up the definition to racist or racism.

    I didn't "jump on" anything. I said if you are a person that judges on skin color alone, you have issues. I feel the same way about stereotypes and cultural differences too . Get to know the person before you judge. If you are gonna boldly come out and say that you don't date a certain race or whatever, then i feel you should at least say why to avoid coming across as offensive because you never know how certain people will take it. It's just common courtesy and and being respectful. Just because a person is one race it doesn't mean that their whole family is that same race.

    I transposed the word "it" to read "so it does bother you", my fault.
    It was pretty clear i was asking a question. Don't be so quick to jump to conclusions.



    ROFL!!! Don't flatter yourself pal! I was following this thread long before you made a post....
    And like always you were lurking and waiting. You just proved that.


    Substance, you have to understand that most people don't care to know the person or to know in depth, most people make their decisions on a whim. I don't think it has to do mostly with race, I think it probably has more to do with stereotypes than race.
    I understand that but I still don't agree with it. My view is that you can't judge anyone if you really don't know them. Don't assume so much.

    Like if I think Asians (not southeast Asians as that would be my race) are superior to Caucasians, that still means that I'm racist.

    No it doesn't. Here's the closest thing I could find:

    dictionary.com:
    a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
    Merriam Webster:

    a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race
    Oxford:
    the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races:
    But whatever. If someone thinks their own race is inferior, they are still conceding that atleast one race is superior to their own. Which ever way you look at it, one race is being seen as superior to another.

    It could be how they were raised or how their parents are. I know my dad is very racist and I'm dating a black girl and my sister married a Vietnamese man and he's not happy with either of us at all. That could be a reason.

    The difference in skull shape is what i meant by cro mag.
    You know how aboriginals are more like the one on the left.


    If you still don't understand then take a trip to Darwin, they use the Police as taxis over there and sell roadkill at markets as food.

    I am not kidding.

    I don't think you're kidding, I just think you're being racist. Had you said that about any other ethnic group or race, you'd have a beatdown from the staff for it. I mean, there's really not anything to your post. Australian aboriginals aren't 'less evolved' than anyone else; they're human beings just as much as me or you. Their skull is shaped slightly different? Well yes, there's minor differences globally on that for all of our species.

    It sounds to me you're looking at what's left of their original culture, which is attempting to still blend with western invasion, and laughing at it. When the issue isn't an inherent difference but instead one of different life developments.

    Me? Yes I would date out of race. I'd try to work through the racial culture differences.
    I'm gonna say yes it is racist to say you wouldn't date someone for no other reason than a persons race. The polite thing to say or more logical would be to say you want to date someone like your father or mother. Without really having to go into much detail about race you avoid hurting peoples feelings and you dont give off a negative projection. Saying you won't date someone just because of their race makes you look like a bigot. In the end words have meaning what you ment to say isn't always what you've said because what you say others will interpert those words for what they literally mean.

    Also to say your not racist because you have friends of another race is pretty racist. It's like wearing your friends as a suit of armor if someone were to accuse you of being racist you should have a better response than that. If someone were to call me a racist I would ask them why do they think I'm racist what have I done to offend you or anyone else for that matter.

    If you don't want to be called a racist or people to think your a racist maybe you should take other peoples feelings into consideration whether you give 2 cents about them or not. In the end it's the impression you leave on the other person that matters. Obviously you're someone who cares about yourself and how other people see you which is commendable. A lot of people are just ignorant, rude, and self centered there's this myth out there called common sense in actuality it isn't common. For the record though I'll say this there are far more issues to not date a person other than race and if that's you're on pretense to having a sexual relationship with someone I hope that you die alone and never have chance to have your seed spread.

    I quoted you just to get back on topic I'm not accusing you of anything in just speaking in general.

    They haven't blended in and have no need to.
    The government (also to blame) pays their way for everything, buys them houses, pays their bills and gives them food. They have literally no need to work as money is not required.

    I don't know about that but his statement does say he has a certain mindset about a certain group of people, which is probably not accurate and just based on ignorance. It's probably something he heard others say.

    That's not racism, that's more like prejudism. The indigenous population is probably part of Asia and Africa...now if he was specifically talking about the entire race and not just the ones living in Australia, that would be racism. Really, racism is a confusing word as we're so mixed now, you don't know who anyone is talking about anymore.

    We should focus more on ethnicity. Yes, he's being prejudice against those certain ethnic people. Prejudice means that he's arriving at a conclusion without knowing facts.

    My opinion is, while it may seem that they are lesser of the species, we don't know until we conduct actual research. There are plenty of cultures out there where people may seem less civilized and less educated or intelligent but it may have to do with their circumstances rather than something inherited by their specific gene pool.

    -Blacks are less evolved than us. Look at the definitions of their skulls, and notice the slightly larger brow and more square jaw. Their skulls are closer to resembling the skull of apes and chimpanzees than ours. They've (natives) shown to be incompetent with adjusting to our society. I wouldn't touch one with a 10-foot pole, because they and their culture is clearly not as evolved as ours.-

    How is that anything but blatant racism? All you need to do is replace 'blacks' with 'aboriginals' and you have exactly what Bitbydeath has stated in this thread. There's nothing confusing about this...

    You made some good points and that statement from him could definitely be taken as racist by some. I don't know him personally and would never call him one, but when you say things like that, some people will assume that you are. I don't know if he meant to say it that way, but the way he put it was very offensive, and he basically degraded a whole group of people off of obvious ignorance. It definitely goes to prove that racism is taught and always will be.

    grr stupid website. i had this whole thing typed up but it went away.

    See, why I'm confused about the whole thing is that if this guy actually saw a pretty girl from that culture, he wouldn't think the same about her. Or if he had met someone intelligent.

    So he's trying to describe something, while I agree that it may certainly have some racist remarks in there, I think most of it is just prejudice.

    He's making assumptions based on generalized ideas.

    It's like e.g. there was this old fat white guy on CNN that I always thought, looked like a bulldog. Does that make me racist? Sometimes I make judgements based on a person's looks (regardless of race/ethnicity), that's not racism.

    I think Asians are the smartest race out there (specifically talking about far eastern ones) but while I know that it has more to do with their culture, I'm sure a lot of people believe that based on their race (shape, color etc.), that's more like prejudism that seems racism but it's not.

    i guess there's a thin line, i'm not trying to argue but i'm trying to find the best label for him lol.

    Well he's wrong about one thing for sure, they're not Blacks, they're a mix of African/Asian. Black is a word used for people of African decent in US.
