    Exactly. It's nearly impossible for blacks to be racist in the US. It requires a position of power, which they don't have. The laws that have worked against them over time, were created by white (almost all male).

    Racism is one race's continued practice and control over another race. Prejudice is what many republicans deem racism, which comes more from experience, or what your environment teaches you.

    Whites experience virtually no racism towards them in the US. It's the absolute exception, nothing more. The majority of (nearly all) blacks in our country has experience racism towards them. Laws, financial institutions, educational institutions, employment, housing, and much more, are not in their favor.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    yep. Individual racism is more so prejudice. Systematic racism is what liberals are constantly referring to. The pillars of our society is built with walls, many of which were built with keeping blacks in a state of poverty, and making sure their path to success (however you measure it) was exponentially harder than whites.

    But hey, capitalism depends on a class of poverty, so I guess we succeeded...

    This is what happens when you're white and probably haven't had an interaction with a minority in your lifetime. You find this type of stupid **** funny.

    The guardrails are off. Call it racist, they will call you being "woke" with a threatening sneer. Don't offend them, boss, while they are being offensive.

    Saying it out and proud. The willingness to take the hit for his conviction is troublesome.

    Its amazing the confidence in which people speak outright racism then gaslight others in trying to tell them its something else. I find it hard to believe this is the first time he has espoused those views either whether it was to his colleagues, his friends, etc. The alarm bell didn't go off to say maybe we should tell the school board that this guy shouldn't be teaching?

    Racism isn't a problem for some if it isn't directed at them. Easy to just walk it off as talk like ethnic jokes.

    I mean, I lived in Houston, and even in a metro area in the deep south, racism is just another day type thing. Most whites I knew there, and worked with, absolutely had racist tendencies. And the other thing I always noticed was, blacks stuck with blacks in the south. No interracial relationships involving blacks. It was the norm for blacks to stick to their own, and I had to adjust when I moved back up north to the fact that interracial relationships involving blacks are common most other places.

    Long story short, this video isn't surprising. The only surprising thing was, he said it in front of black kids. That type of **** is said all the time when whites are talking amongst themselves. Regarding that, it goes back to another thread where someone asked if politics broke up friendships. In my experience, yep. Guys I was friends with through college/work, as soon as they said **** like this in front of me, they weren't a friend anymore.

    They are getting rather bold and seeing little to no consequences.
