You would think that over the years racism and intolerance like this wouldn't exist.  Should round up all these racist *******s and put them in a position where they are the minority.  Then see how they like being ridiculed, laughed at, beaten, and made to feel like a low form of life.  Maybe then they will think about their actions before following thru with them.

 

America is a melting pot of many different ethnicity/people from around the world.  We should be the most tolerant of any country but instead, we are the least tolerant.  Considering the history of the US, that is just sad.

Imbeciles tweet imbecilic things.

 

I often wonder whether these tweets are sincere or if it is just trolls ######ing with the mainstream. I am sure there are some uncultured, red-neck, hill-billy types who bash away at their keyboard, but surely they are in the minority and don't really represent a general attitude. Given the content of some of those tweets, it is hard to believe they are serious.

Pure nonsense and very ignorant.  Yes there are racists and bigots in America, but they are not the majority, far from it.

I've been to America(and many americans been here), and I've noticed. With most americans, racism is part of their culture. Looking down on anything that isn't you (white usually). Either against blacks or Mexicans and since the last decade or so, muslims.

 

Saying I'm the ignorant one, while you obviously have not spoken to a lot of Muricans, cause you'd find out, more then half of the Muricans are racists. Which makes it the democratic majority.

 

Time and time again, americans that come here are surprised we don't have those ghetto issues or Texan mumbo-jumbo. And that we (western) Europeans don't seem to give a rats ass (in general) about the origin of a person.

Even your American 'N*gger' bull, where if I say that word as a white boy, the chances of me getting shot, stabbed or beaten to a pulp are very, very high in most American cities. While here the worst I get is some bloke staring at me and telling me to go f*ck myself.

 

And everyone acting like America is not racist and its the obvious minority doing this, stop being a left winged hippie and stop ignoring issues in your country. If you keep ignoring it and not notice what the rest of the world obviously sees... The American race problem is NEVER going anywhere.

I wish a Native American would win. My woman is a Native American, there's a lot of racism showed towards them as well. While all the focus is on the racism towards blacks, there is a lot of racism showed towards Native Americans but no one seems to talk about it in the mass media.

Indigenous people are usually overlooked when it comes to racism, disadvantage, persecution, etc. In Australia, many of the Aboriginal population live in abject poverty and disadvantage and no one seems to care, and if you are non-indigenous and talk about it you're branded all sort of stupid/racist things (###### lover/white hating,self-hating/naive/stupid etc.) I think it is a national source of shame and embarrassment how the indigenous people of my country have been treated.

Yep lots of Native Americans are living in poverty. My GF used to live on a reservation, she said she lived in a half burnt out trailer.

I think indigenous people in every country live in poverty. The situation described in Australia is almost identical here in Canada. However, most natives I have met are incredibly lazy to do anything that is even remotely productive.

I posted it earlier on Facebook.. makes me sick. She was born here just like any of the people tweeting these things. They're descended from an immigrant, too, and they had just as much control of their own birthplace and the decisions of their forefathers as Nina did.

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

While Europeans are certainly guilty of racism, racism isn't uniquely European. Many races/cultures have abused and mistreated other races for personal gain. Members of the same "race" have mistreated each other. Ask an Irish person how they or their ancestors were treated by the English, for example. It's also worthwhile looking at some of the racism that exists in places like Asia. There is plenty of racist barbs traded between the Chinese and Japanese, for example.

 

Race to me seems to be one of the most ridiculous and absurd things to judge a person on. At that rate, why not judge them on height, or gender, or eye colour? All of those things are equally out of one's control. Treat people with a bit of respect and courtesy and in the overwhelming majority of instances with people they will reciprocate. If they don't, then maybe they are just jerks.

Sigh, not surprising sadly. I hope one day racism will truly come to an end. I fear I will not live to see that day though.
