    Default Do you have racist friends?

    Hi there.

    So I just uploaded a music video with Korean music on my facebook, for fun.
    This moron in my friendlist could only comment:
    'Do there excist any other people besides Asians in your world?'
    That totally pissed me off because I know he hates anything 'foreign' (not white).
    Sadly he's not the only one to make such comments on my facebook.
    I just don't get why people are so proud of being racist that they have to put it out there.
    Do you have racist friends like that? If so, how do you handle that?

    I personally always confront them that they're being racist about it.
    And I them that if they dislike me over my music taste that they have to GTHO.
    Liking music in a certain language doesn't mean you think you're a part of that country.
    That is also something I find very important to tell them.

    UPDATE: I removed that moron from my friendlist.

    I could never call someone like that a 'friend', but if I came across a comment like that, I would just ignore it and pity that person for being so ignorant. I'm not a very confrontational person.

    Yeah I kinda stopped thinking of that person as a friend .___.
    I know there are some other sort of racist people in the group I go out with.
    But they never actually talk about it. Which is sort of ... OK-ish.
    I just hate people that force a certain way of life on you.
    That comment, I removed it. I think thats ok too right? o.o

    I don't know anyone who is openly racist like that. Though I do have a friend who refuses to eat Indonesian or Asian foods. He says he will only eat Australian or Italian food since that is both of his cultural backgrounds.

    hmm i don't think not eating other types of food is racist... but perhaps naive.

    No, I hate racist people, if they want to hate on other people because of where they come from then I'll hate on them because of their narrowminded, midevil beliefs. If someone says something racist and I hear I will confront them, I always get so pissed when people say stupid things. =/

    That i do. i usually handle it with threatening looks, sarcastic laughter, a punch in the gut, or just not give a damn. gotta remember that they mostly do it to get attention. 99% of them won't be racist in front of the particular group in question. just like gamers don't talk smack in person...well...i do... but thats different! lol
    but like i said. push the DGAF button. no harm done.

    My old school (12-16) was horrible. I was the only brown skinned person in an entirely white school. I'd be picked on and called a terrorist and drity arab etc (my parents are from Bangladesh). After 4 years of taking it, I made the mistake of acting against it with force - it all just got to me. I beat the living sh-it out of a couple of the people in my year.... and then got my bones broken by their older siblings. The police got involved and caught the young men that beat me outside of school. I was expelled from the school, and the racist kids weren't. I learnt a powerful lesson from it. That those racist people are looking for violent retaliation; because then society can fit you into the stereotype as a result. From then on i strengthened my resolve to keep my temper under check and only to ever reliate with logic and reason.

    To be fair, just seemingly uploading nothing but kpop stuff does get old and though you say this person was racist since you knew their history, but annoyingly posting that stuff over and over could cause ANYONE to ask you that -____-

    Crap like that gets old. I removed a girl from my FB since all she posted were high heel shoes she liked. Seriously, nothing but shoes. Doesn't mean I'm racist towards shoes but sometimes people want more of a variety from someone than someone talking about the same thing all day everyday..... Just something to think about...

    -----------

    In any case I have quite a few racist friends. If they say something racist I usually don't reply and let it be. I'm [ironically] not one to start arguments in real life. I'm not going to argue with someone over a mindset that isn't going to change. If you're racist, you're going to be racist and you don't magically change to not being racist one morning. You're racist from life experiences or how you grew up/were raised.

    What really blew my mind was racist people who had friends of the races they were racist against. Like my best friend for instance, was racist to mexicans calling them "dirty messicans" etc. etc. for THE LONGEST TIME... Yet his two best friends were mexican. My mind was blown. And don't even get me started on the friends that are racist towards Obama. One owns a gas station and under the sign with all the prices of gas etc. theres a billboard for them to post up words n stuff. They put "5 dollars a gallon - vote for Obama"

    I was like really? You're going to put that out in front of your store?

    Racism is everywhere, you won't be able to escape that in this world and that's the sad reality of things. I'm not gonna lie, I have some racist tendencies myself. It's just like blueangel said, you're racist from life experiences or how you grew up/were raised. I laugh at racist jokes, I make racist jokes, but that doesn't exactly mean I am hateful towards those races. I even make fun of my own race sometimes. You can't be so uptight about it, ya know? It's not like your friend said "omg asians again? I loathe them with a passion." He wasn't being prejudice towards asians, just wondered why you are so obsessed with them, which I'm not saying is a bad thing, but I'm guessing he didn't expect you to get so offended.

    Yes, I do have some racist friends in real life, but they don't talk about it openly. I think it's proper that way. If you are racist, you keep it to yourself, instead of telling and insulting people because you're racist towards certain groups of people. It shows that you're narrow minded if you do. Racism happens because of stereotype. Just because a certain race is stereotyped like bla bla doesn't mean that they're really bla bla, for example. I usually ignore racist remarks, it's best that way.

    Thanks to Ms Lucy for this awesome, funny gif.

    The person that you are now is not the person that I used to know. You're becoming a stranger that I've never met before. Not liking the change though.

    Default Re: Do you have racist friends?

    Due to my time in academia and living in different cities I've made friends with quite a few Asians(mostly Chinese) and Indians. And a few of them are what I might consider half racist.

    Now, they can't have been altogether racist or they wouldn't have wanted to be friends with me.

    However when it comes to dating or especially marrying somebody, then the person absolutely positivily had to be from their race. They were very up front about that when it would come up, perhaps so we wouldn't set them up on a date with someone of a different race or something, or maybe it had come up enough and been a problem they just wanted to get it out there and move on.

    I think they might have been heavily influenced by the expectations of their families in regards to this.

    Default Re: Do you have racist friends?

    I have a few friends that are racist. I try not to let it bother me since that is their decision, not mine. I find racism to be a huge waste of time and energy. I'm not a fan of "limitations" and to limit someone based on nothing but ethnicity is pretty... ignorant. Take people for who they are. If they are stupid that doesn't mean their entire culture is stupid (insert other meaningless stereotypes here) >,>

    Personally i think that is fine only if it stems from a sexual nature; physical appearance is important. So catagorizing an attraction to, for example, the colour of the skin is on the same level as preference of, say, larger breasts over smaller ones.

    However I think more what you are talking about is the social and family pressure. The East, India, Bangladesh, the Orient, is socially very different from the west: It's very family orientated. As a result marriage to foreigners, people of other culture, will be frowned upon. And the ethos of this kind of thinking becomes ingrained in some people's tastes.

    I can imagine it myself: If i bought, say, an African girl home to my Bengali parents, there would be social stigma from the family. I can't really say how much, but i can feel there would at least be some reservation. Honestly though, i wouldn't care what family would think- a relationship of love transcends that of family for me...

    I'm pretty sure it's not a physical attraction thing, mostly because of how specific they were and also because they were sure about it ahead of time. I could see someone only really being attracted to certain looks. But people in surrounding countries or from different backgrounds just don't look that different.

    Yeah it's definitely an outcome of social conformity.

    I get the feeling this is very common in the old world, especially among the older generations.

    And not just Asians either. My wife's grandparents on her fathers side were the children of immegrants from Greece, and were together because of an arranged marriage. My wife's dad was the first in the family to marry a non-Greek and it sounds like his family acted like it was the end of the world for a while. His grandmother wouldn't come out of her bedroom for weeks and everyone treated my wife's mom like crap for ages. It took decades for them to seem to get over it.

    Sometimes my friends may say something offensive about another race but...I'm sure they dont mean it. They're not grabbing pitchforks and screaming "KILL THEM ALL!!"

    They just do it for laughs, and although I highly disapprove of it...I cant control what they say. :/

    I dont join in on their childish name-calling. I'm too mature -.-; wish I could say the same for them, lolz.

    Well some of my friends are , well just one friend, but she's the one to make references that are kinda funny, since they're about her race (and mine..) so I tend to laugh with her because its 50% true xD
    mmm, aside from that not much I guess,
    my friends tend to call me racist, since I tend to say things that I shouldn't but its mostly because I'm half stupid, and the words that come out of my mouth aren't what I thought they'd be.. orz

    I tend to say things that people find offensive, but I never mean to be offensive, just the way I say it, comes out... stupid xDD

    as for that kid you said on FB, yeah, he must be very closed minded,

    There is a lot of racism in Australia. It's so disgusting. It makes me a bit racist toward Aussies (even though I am one). No one has any control over which country they are born into, so racism is just plain STUPID!

    I've seemed to notice that there seems to be quite a bit of hate between Australia and Japan...
