To the black americans, i need some help understanding you?
I'm not racist...Well maybe by pointing out your race I am. But everyone has their prejudices and stereotypes because it is a natural function of the brain to protect itself. But anyways let me know what you think. I've come across many black people in my life and i find these few things in common. When i seem to complain to a black person about how rude and loud they are, they always seem to use "what you saying that cuz i'm black?" No, stupid i'm not saying that cuz your black, i'm saying it cuz your LOUD. Why do black people (no this does not apply to all of black people) say such things? They also say stuff like "cuz i'm black i don't get equal opportunities." For some this stands true. But in my experience many of these acclaimed gangsters say it. I find this intriguing because these gangsters choose to give up their education and are unhappy at working at McDonalds. So at least here in SF i think they have good opportunities they just throw it away. CAn someone clarify this 4 m sorry dtrain didn't mean to offend you. But what makes you think I'm white? i think you're also only seeing what you want to see. I'm trying to learn and i just put an observation i see out there and am trying to understand why there seems to be some trend as why many black people blame others for being racist when it has nothing entirely to do with it. And for your fact im asian. oh and to why something something. Your telling me i'm racist when you just made a racist comment yourself. I'm stating an observation i see and would like you to evaluate it. IN no way was i referring to all black people since i know that not all black people act that way. But in this case alot that I have seen do and i was wondering why, I was only looking for an answer and in no way was i attacking you personally. This question was not meant to offend anybody and if you take offense in it well don't answer and hit the back command button. Thats all you have to do and for the person (i forgot the name as i type this) who answered about seeing racism in nothing i appreciate it. That was the kind of answer i was looking for. And why do you all assume i'm white and this is a white and black issue. Its not IM JAPANESE AND CHINESE. And my people have gone through prejudice as well. maybe not the same as black people but in different ways. My grandparents were stuck in internment camps while no Germans were put into internment camps. My grandparents were stuck on angel island. My great great aunt was faced with many prejudices as well when she was the wife of a man who worked on the railroad. So please don't assume about my race just because of the topic of my question. oh and thanks for the personal attacks (most of you) and for the wrong kind of attacks.

I'm guessing that you haven't run into enough black people in your life if all of them are rude and loud, and blame "the man" for not letting them live the American Dream. I don't do either, and I talk to lots and lots of white people every day. Although I don't know all of the circumstances behind your encounter... More
