    Huh? Racism is about the two races that interacted in a racist way. Since whites are most frequently labeled racists, racism is, in effect, frequently about them and their behavior towards other races.

    I don't want to turn this into a CE thread, but what's the point of making this thread if not to dismiss a minority's claim of racism? It was CE material to begin with.

    To answer your question, racism is a thing. It exists and we experience it. Do I encounter it daily. weekly, monthly or even annually? Not to my knowledge. I just hate the fact that white people act put upon every time the word is uttered or typed. People don't react the same way when homophobia is invoked.

    I didn't post this to dismiss his claim. I posted it so that everybody could read it. I included "...or some shit" before the article because I was being post-adolescent and droll. Ethnically, I'm not even considered 'white'.

    That assumption speaks volumes about your own biases.

    Anyone who's been around these parts a couple of years knew exactly where this thread was going as soon as it was posted.

    Someone link me to Sarah Silverman's funniest bits. I've never found her all that humorous but I've admittedly not done more than casually watch some of her standup.

    I find this comment interesting because many blacks take exception to when gay-rights people compare homophobia, in all its manifestations, to the civil rights struggles of blacks.

    A lot of black people are homophobic. And no, the #struggle isn't the same, but who are we to discount someone else's plight just because it was SLIGHTLY less heinous.

    Sorry. Next time I start a thread that might go in a direction you don't like, just let me know and I'll retract everything.
