If, by becoming post racist, we discriminate against white people, we are no better than before. Seems white bashing is the 'in' thing to do nowadays, and that only puts us right back where we were imo. Just trading one race for another.
most of the vocal bashing seems to be against Muslims and Mexicans to me...where do you live?
SoCal. Had a conversation with a white friend yesterday. It's not so much bashing she was complaining about as it is that none of her family can't get aid for anything because 'they're white' so don't get help. College scholarships, getting into college, period. My kids graduated and got scholarships. Their white friends got two jobs right out of high school so they could pay for their college education or joined the military. Didn't matter how smart they were or athletic.
LOL....not where I live.
I thought in the 60s and 70s we were on our way . . . man was I wrong about that one.
Society is always wrong anyways we won't ever have one. That's plain as day
Well, I thought we WERE a post-racial society. Silly me! I never knew I was a racist until I didn't vote for Obama because I'm a conservative. Then I was told over and over again that I (and anyone who didn't vote for him) was a racist!
Yes, of course I agree with you. I don't dislike our President (and he IS my President, and I will give him all the respect that office holds) I just didn't agree with some of his policies/philosophies. It just really upset me to be called a racist because of it!
In England, for the most part, yes. There are still a few idiots out there, but they're mostly ignored. When I was growing up in the seventies though, it was terrible - even as a young kid I could see that things were just not right - but now I think that racism is by no means exclusive to white people, I've met lots of Afro-Caribbean people who have been extremely racist towards Asians, and vice-versa.
We might be getting there slowly, but it could take a long while. Some parts of the world are still very entrenched, and people that are just looking for a reason are all too quick to take up race as that reason.
I think we are at last starting to see a few breakthroughs, but don't hold your breath buddy.
Unfortunately, the answer to your question is no.
I'd had hopes--then I see the vehemence at racial hatred aimed at Obama and I wonder---sadly. :(
