At my gym we give black people everything they want, they have their own changing rooms and showers, own equipment, hell they even have their own water fountain. None of it is as good as ours but there's more of us, so it's ok.

coolio mack: No need to apologize, torr5962 put it perfectly in his post. Stephen A. Smith is one of the absolute worst at this, as he always runs to the black community line and thinks he speaks for all blacks in sports. I've also heard him use the phrase "homosexual community" in a couple different instances, which is even more ridiculous.

I do agree with your overall point though, which is why I didn't want to rage out on you or call you a troll like everyone seems to do around here when a poster brings up something about race. My father is a prime example of someone who's been a failure in his life and takes the stand that everyone is out to discriminate against him. And some of the reactions of other black people I heard after Obama got elected was some of the most idiotic, ignorant thinking I've heard.

Your post at the end of this thread is excellent as to how people are judged by their appearance. I notice a clear difference as to how I'm treated when wearing dress clothes as compared to some of the 'urban' gear I have. Walking down the street in nice clothes, I've gotten compliments and smiles. Urban gear, I've gotten women to pull close to their boyfriend or grip their purse a little tighter. I had one guy I was walking comfortably behind do a complete 180, step into the street, and let me pass before he kept going. It's a disappointing feeling, knowing that I'm pushing 30 and have never even been placed in cuffs - yet some people think I'm a common thug. But that's just the way life is and I'm not going to let a few bad apples taint my overall thinking.

Great discussion guys. I don't find that much when I come here.

Having sister that did competitive Irish dance, I'm shocked that a girls involved in dance or gymnastics would so harshly cut down another girl in whatever way they could to be as mean as possible. I'm also shocked that they would hate somebody who could be better than they are. Totally shocked. Usually they are just so supportive of each other.

/actually shocked if they did it to her face.
