Wouldn't it be reverse if the black man wasn't talking smack about black people. This is straight forward racism.

I have only been profiled once and it was by the police. I was driving at a speed of 40 in a 35 (I had a prelude all tricked out at the time) and this buick park avenue came flying by me at about 50 mph. 3 seconds later I got pulled over and he told me he clocked me at 48 mph. I was pissed. He called the K-9 unit and everything to search my car. He said that my car fit the description of a known drug dealer. I said in these exact words, "bullshit, this is the only car like this in the city. I go to the car shows, I know. I got a unique wing (spoiler) and custom rims, and a custom paint job (silver with 7 different pearl colors in it). You are an idiot and I will make sure this ticket never gets paid." It was a black cop and he lost the decision in court because he never showed up. I hope that goes on their record. I understand the profiling thing, but when he saw that I wasn't some raver that dealt drugs he shouldn't have called the k-9 unit that is waht pissed me off the most.

Yea, I wasn't sure what to call the thread, and reverse discrimination was all I could think of, but you guys are right that it's the wrong title.

What pisses me off is not the fact that the guy was racist, but the fact that the guy was obviously voting based on Obama's color, but in the media all you hear is about the white people NOT voting for Obama based on his color. News flash, more white people are voting for Obama than black people.

Racism is so f**king stupid, no matter who perpetrates it.

I think white people refer to black people being racist towards them as "reverse discrimination" because it is MUCH more socially acceptable for a black person to be outwardly racist than a white person. At least that's my experience.

I do not like being judged by the color of my skin. There are a lot of things about mainstream white culture that pisses me off, things about mainstream black culture that piss me off, and things about mainstream hispanic culture that pisses me off.

And these are just the cultures I come into contact with often. Maybe I am a racist bastard because I have no direct ethnic lineage.

Very proud to be an American Mut with no ethnic background to lean on when someone treats me badly.

There's asshole's who happen to be white, African-American, Hispanic, Asian....etc. Just chalk it up to that and move on, because there is really nothing you can do about it.

Really, just be happy that you're enlightened, care about others, and lack prejudicial feelings. **** what other people say, do, think.

I am Hispanic--- in that note I will say--- I dislike when Hispanic folks are lazy, milk the system and are trashy, NOTHING boils my blood more then that---

It is of my opinion that we must uphold our selves to a much higher standard, we are GUEST in this country and as such we should conduct ourselves accordingly--- It is no more work to clean our space as it is to trash it, its more work to be lazy then to be industries, and there is no pride and honor in taking advantage of other folks hard work.

This is the land of the free and most of all and no one can change my view on this no matter what anyone says --- IT IS THE LAND OF OPORTUNITY--- Opportunity is there if you reach out and GRASP it--- BLACK, WHITE, ASIAN, HASIAN, HISPANIC ETC it doesn’t matter--- I have had friends come to this country with nothing in there name, WORK HARD washing dishes in a restaurant moving up the latter to later (with in 5 years) owning the place--- it took sweat, tears and blood, BUT they did it---

United States of America and ALL for which it stands is a beautiful country and I would not live any where else (my country included), I LOVE this nation and the CORE beliefs of its people--- I will FIGHT for THIS nation as if it was my own--- I have traveled it from north to south, east to west and seen the BAD and the UGLY--- and I assure you this Ladies and Gentlemen--- there are more GOOD PEOPLE then there are bad people of ALL colors, races and nationalities.

Well, something to consider as well is that there will be many redneck white americans who will not vote for Obama because he is black.
Hopefully the two groups will even each other out...unlikely, but hopefully.
