I've been openly discriminated by east Indians, (had a girlfriend who was terrified to introduce me to her family because quote: "They'd never accept a white guy") . Not that I gave a shit. I had a friend who had a Chinese girlfriend and wanted to marry her.. Her family basically disowned her because they couldn't accept a "white" guy. Eventually they married though, but had to go through a lot of shit.
All this in "multicultural" Canada. I can give you countless examples of similar cases when white people are being looked down on by other races. So please spare me the speech of who's racist and who's not.
Everyone is a racist in some sort of way. The difference is that some ethnic groups seem to be entitled to it but others are not. Even Dante posted an article about Japan.
As far as Muslims are concerned. No, not all of them should be put in the same category, but the reality is that most terrorists claim to be Muslim, so I'm sure you can see the challenge in this situation.
As I've said in my previous post, I'll eventually elaborate further, but sort of busy these days.
It wasn't a rant. I was basically saying that there's no such thing as being a little bit racist. You are either racist, or you are not.
I am certainly not on any horse, high or otherwise.
What you have said about past girlfriends proves nothing. That's just your experience and is not a true representation of the whole demographic. For every instance of something like this happening, I, or somebody else, can counter it. I have had relationships with girls of other races and religion. The family that were against me were white Jehovah's witnesses, make of that what you will. I will make of it that some people are racist, and some people are not, but i will not make of it that everyone is a little bit racist. I find that a quite outrageous claim.
