Prophet of Loss: Well the black men have been taking all the hot fat white women for a while now so I guess it all evens out eventually.
willfullyobscure: Ant: DROxINxTHExWIND: iheartscotch: The preacher is black!?!? I thought it was unpossible for black people to be racist./ POPCORN! Get your popcorn here!/ Buttscratcher!He's not being racist, dummy. He's being a bigot.Has anyone ever seriously claimed that black people can't be racist? I could see someone saying that black racism against white people was different because of the power imbalance, but claiming that a whole race of people can't be racist would be silly.Yes. Because racism is the systemic, ingrained oppression of a minority group as a cultural practice, members of that minority group cannot be racist, because they do not have the agency to effect racist oppression against other groups.Put another way: blacks can't be racist because even if they engage in bigotry and prejudice based on racial differences, those actions simply does not have the capacity to cause harm that white racism as practiced by the predominant culture and institutions do. A black guy beating up a white guy for being white is bigoted and awful, but not racist, because the system will support the white man in delivering justice, care and support. In the reverse, it is extremely racist, because black guy WON'T get that same support after being beaten by whites, which is racist.Another example to highlight this would be a white judge disproportionately punishing white defendants because he didn't like black people and though they were criminal and evil. Would we call that racist? Yes, yes we would.A black guy saying all white people are scum until proven different because he got an unfair sentence from a white judge? No, we would not.So yes, it is seriously argued and widely accepted that the ability of a group or person to exercise agency and power over another defines their ability(or lack of ability) to be racist. Black people by and large can't be racist in America.
Ant: "We got our civil rights, fark you!"
KidKorporate: Ant: "We got our civil rights, fark you!"Yep. Apparently we've upgraded the "black people can't be racist" to "black people can't be bigots."Watch them pull the race card on this...
DROxINxTHExWIND: Ant: "We got our civil rights, fark you!"No one who is intelligent thinks that all people who look the same think the same. No one with any sense believes that black people can't be bigotted towards another group.
WeenerGord: Buttknuckle: WeenerGord: Buttknuckle: I may get blasted for this, but I speak from experience. Black people are the most homophobic. Gays are the most racist. I don't know why..../I am a gay white male and was in a relationship with a black guy for three years.Were you the bottom or the top?We were both versatile. Why?You brought it up, I figured you wanted to share. Why did you guys break up?
Sgt Otter: Robert1966: So THAT is how insane a black man has to be to be anti-Obama.This dude has been on Fark before. He's an unabashed black supremacist, who has called for a violent uprising to throw every non-black face out of Harlem. "ATLAH" is some weird acronym that spells out something about how Harlem is the holy land for black Americans, and only black Americans.He hates Obama because he flies into a rage when he sees people calling "the half-cracker mongrel son of some white whore with jungle fever" the "first black President."

XveryYpettyZ: This is taking the argument much much further than it typically is. Racism is prejudice plus power. A black store owner or manager can be racist in his or her hiring practices because he or she has the power to hire, fire or promote people. Their skin color does not automatically strip away that power.So the idea that "black people cannot be racist" is frankly a stupid statement, even by that very narrow definition of racism.
miss diminutive: On one hand, I'm disgusted by his vile, bigoted and inflammatory remarks.On the other hand, I'm impressed that someone with an obvious mental illness can still hold down a job.

Have you ever asked a straight man whether he was on top or bottom in a relationship?So not every gay person has a personal responsibility to explain homosexual relationships to everyone who asks?//I'm not sure if that's better or worse than people remaining ignorant, if we imagine those are the only choices.//I'm pretty ignorant about a lot minority lifestyles.More of an oddity that people who are "NOT GAY DAMMIT" seem to do an awful lot of thinking about gay sex./cool-TMI-bro: I've always preferred guys who enjoy both, Fair Trade is good. Never had a great fondness for either receiving or giving bjs.super_grass: [thesocietypages.org image 850x567]Must have something to do with comparing gay activists to the civil rights movement./Or southern baptism.This. I have seen quite a few publicized examples of black people dismissing the gay rights movement as being nothing like their own civil rights movement. But I'd blame the extreme conservativeness of the Baptist church, plus a little media sensationalism exaggerating the scale of opposition.
Best Princess Celestia: Blame straight couples, they have all the gay children.
