Amen, brother

Way to go, Cosby. *applauds*

Sometimes this whole philosophy and concept of racism just irks me beyond explaination. I have never discriminated against anyone in my life. When I see people, I see individual humans with characteristics and it's amazing how impossible it is for some people to believe that. It's shocking when they insist that I don't. I've had it happen, where just because I'm white, I must be discriminative. No, fellas, and that's when reverse racism comes in, and then I get really pissed. But thank you, Bill. The world needs to remember what personal responsibility is, and needs to stop blaming past mistakes on all current problems. You can't move into the future if you're living in the past and focusing on all the negatives instead of making goals to reach positives.

An article for extra measure and enjoyment.

Amen sister!
Wait...was that racist or stereotyping or politically incorrect? I don't know.
I for one am NOT racist at all. I grew up in a town and went to a high school where both are basically 100% Caucasian, but that doesn't make me racist or small minded. Which is a misconception many people hold as fact.
I don't really believe in 'reverse racism.' Racism is racism. No one said it was racism towards blacks from whites, or from whites to Hispanics or whites to Asians...
hmm. I see a pattern.
Anyway...just my two cents, which probably is worthless to everyone else. = )

explaination.
well...by reverse racism, I mean when people hate you because they believe you're racist, whether you are or aren't. When they start discriminating against me because i'm white, believing that I must be racist and an opressor, that's racism all the same. It's just commonly known as reverse racism in these parts. =]

Re: explaination.
The difficult part is discerning between being pro-minority (good) and reverse racist.

A lotta (well.. some) black rap groups really teeter between them imo, but .. I don't give a shit I like their music.

Re: explaination.
Yeah, see, I am such an old-schooler when it comes to rap. Fugees, all the way.

Re: explaination.
Aw man my mate LOVES the Fugees! I'm not really into them, personally (I'm more def jux) but I can certainly see the appeal.

And when I mean the pro-black rap groups I think most of them WERE relatively old school, like Public Enemy and a lot of those types (man, my hiphop education is pretty lacking).

Re: explaination.
So is mine. I'm a total white girl and partly ashamed. Because I enjoy hip-hop and trip-hop and things of the like. But the first "rap" I encountered was Coolio. And I thought it was badass and I was super underground because I liked Ice Cube back in the day. But hey, it eventually led me DJ Shadow... which is a good thing.
