Unintentional racists

I love liberals who are unintentionally racist. I'm
currently working with a white guy who, whenever he meets a
black person, says "easy brother" and puts his hand to his
chest and does a peace sign. If he meets a white and black
person at the same time he just says "hello" to the white

Just wanted to share that.

Sounds like a version of that thing many do whereby they
present themselves differently, often without realising, to
different people - found this myself as someone who moved
from London to north Scotland as a kid, the broadness of my
accent changed depending where I was.

Yeah he's one of those people who changes their accent to
talk to people from other countries. We went to a pub and
because the bartender looked slightly Hispanic he tried to
order in Spanish.

In my experience a lot of White Males engage in this kind of
"accidental" racism with such frequency that it's impossible
for rational thinker to maintain the belief that they don't
actually know exactly what they're doing. The fact is that
well over 90% of White Males are simply hateful, resentful,
and bitter to their very cores, even after we've been
actively working to expunge their bullshit from our society
for decades. Whether their pathology is due to an inherent
defect in White-Maleness or because of socialization in a
system of White Male Supremacy is a question still up for
debate, but the real threat that White Males pose to the
continuance of a multicultural society today cannot be
disputed. These days, whenever I catch a White Male
acquaintance—not that I choose to associate with many of
them, but sometimes life provides us with few other
options—whenever I catch one committing the kinds of
microaggressions you describe, I'll just immediately end all
contact with the person. In the past I've tried to explain
to them exactly why whatever fucking garbage they just
spewed is unacceptable, but after so many years I've decided
the only way we'll ever deal with these assholes is total
dissociation. Respectability politics doesn't work. Fuck
them and fuck anyone who puts up with them.

I try to treat everyone the same. But somehow people tell me
nowadys this behavior is denying racism in our society.

Talib Kwely told me on twitter that the thing about racism
is lack of compassion, and generally those kind of people is
not an asshole only to strangers but also to people of the
same race. which i found often being some kind of barrier
that underneath reveals way more compassionate humans than
the ones that declare they arent racists. i think its a thin
line between being compassionate and having your ass open to

i think stating that everyone is the same is disregarding
their culture, they are equal regarding their rights and as
a human being. but of course treating everyone the same and
thinking everyone is the same are different matters. i can't
see why treating everyone the same is denying racism.

Totally agree with you, indeksical. I feel positive
discrimination happens at large, and some people can’t
tell the difference or where the problem is.

Not sure what mo meant either... maybe that racist people
are more caring? A caring approach?

I do treat everyone the same and won't deny racism. However,
i do disregard certain cultures. Islam is a patriarchal,
homophobic, sexist religion. I dislike it like it, like i
dislike all religions

you cant fool me with your rethoric, im talking about my
experiences, not to say the your race is far more racist
than the white one. only the latter has more money, and
rules the planet thanks god. imagine the world ruled by one
of those troglodites. you just have rare exceptions, which
is the closest examples of civilization you have.

i don't think disregarding certain cultures or religion is
going to help anything. i think face to face communication
with every individual should be based on your personal
experience with them. meaning the individual sharing
experience you had with them, not the experience you had
with their race, their sex up to that point.

I'm the opposite, I politely say hello to Blacks but Sieg
Heil to Whites because they're so persecuted, I feel for
them (White Genocide)

I saw Facebook recently apologised for condoning a white
genocide advert during Halloween! Aaah cheeky Russians...

flatmate, i stopped after ive been told he was

doing the opposite would have made me guilty of something as
well, for what this thread and the general leftist overtake
of power since King LOL has abdicated, is concerned
