How would you feel if you were labeled a racist person?




For me, as a non racist, it wouldn't matter. It seems to make people mad when they are racist. It's just another label and it only annoys people when they believe it. But that's my opinion on the subject. *By the way, I think racism is wrong, so don't think I think it's ok*

I had a piece of grass on my shoe, and she wiped that off. Yeah. Impressive, eh? That's probably the closest I've ever been to having sex. :P

thats a good answer. But, why would it annoy a racist person to be labeled as such?

I wouldn't care because It's not true and for those who are racist why would they care? That's like calling a blonde person, blonde. Bit of a bogus thread babe.

The only people who tell you that you can't do something are those who have already given up on their own dreams so feel the need to discourage yours.

I wouldn't give a dam about what they think/say about me but I would want to know why they are saying it.

Because it would make them look like a bad person. If you were a racist, and I pointed you out in a crowd, wouldn't you be embarrassed or upset? It's such a common thing to shun racist people. It'd be very difficult to keep a job if you started throwing slurs at a customer at your job. I sadly had a few racist friends. When I pointed it out around people, they were embarrassed and threw denies and excuses out like a machine gun on automatic.

bogus? I am merely curious. If i were to be called racist I would be bothered by it. I would consider my self a racist person, but anymore I just dont know. I thought about it, and I am honestly unsure. I dont want to go into details because it could be offensive.

again, does that not embody prejudice? To think someones opinions are invalid just because of the opinions background them selves?

Im not trying to start a racist thread. I just am curious about things.





and, if you had read all of that post you quoted. you would realize the past tense.













on another thread here, a student(he was like 13) said we should teach our children everyone is equal. Infact if i recall, he implied FORCE of equality. Which, I do not believe is contradictory to things, "separate but equal". I dont think brainwashing people into believing the same thing about everyone is going to be a good thing

"I would consider myself a racist person" isn't past tense it's present tense.



"I used to consider myself a racist person" would be past tense.



You said you would feel offended by it, then labeled yourself. Well done lol

People throw the term "racist" around a lot these days. I don't believe any race is subordinate to mine (white) nor do I discriminate against anyone based on race, therefore I'm not a racist.



Let people call me racist. I'll call them ignorant.

hm, you seem to miss the entire point of this thread. And, yes I was trying to use the idea of "would" as past tense. eitherway, seems very off topic.





But perhaps if you seem so opinionated on this, you could answer me the question i asked about woodcut's 2nd post.

I thought you were Singaporean. :?



I don't consider myself racist, but I hate it when someone's accused of being racist they're like, "I'm not racist, some of my best friends are !" Sounds like they just keep them around so they can deny being racist.

Singapore is a multi-racial country.Our natives are Malay,but over the years and WWII,we've got some Chinese folk too.And Indians :roll:



I'm Singaporean because my great-grandparents came over,so I'm safe =D

Racism has been twisted into something that even anti-racists don't like. Some people are guaranteed jobs because the employers are scared of racism, even if they're not qualified. :(
