America has problems, but America is NOT THE PROBLEM!~
If they are up front about it.

Really I do respect people that are up front about how they feel, give me a person that just comes out and calls me a dirty Jew, or a black person a filthy Nigger, or a Latino a Spic or greaser, at least you know where they are coming from. There are no surprises with these people and I can respect that. I don't like them, but then again they don't like me either.

It's the people that are under cover that really scare me, you know the ones. I am sure most of us have one in our lives, the ones that use terms for getting a good deal on something as " I Jewed them down" or in a moment of anger at being cut off in traffic, will say "G-D damned Slopes can't drive for shit" If it is an Oriental driving.

Or a group of construction workers that are white seeing a beautiful black woman say "damn that is one fine Nigger" These are the ones that I fear because they do not believe they are racist at all, they have fooled themselves into thinking they are just plain Joe's and do not think the comments they make have a racial or bigoted overtone. These people are the ones that perpetuate hatred and don't know it, they are the one that give people like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson ammunition to help keep the races divided, they are the ones that go off the deep and like Micheal Richards did when he had his meltdown and started screaming Nigger over and over again, I am sure he was as surprised at his own behavior as the world was. Richards simply did not know how deeply his hatred ran till he was pushed.

Now before anyone gets their panties in a bunch let me make this clear I do not like bigots and racists, I think they are the scum of the earth, they cause nothing but trouble and should be eliminated from the planet. It's just that with the up front ones like the Ku Klux Klan or the skinheads or the Black Panthers what you see is what you get, they are what they claim to be, racists and bigots is how they behave and they make no bones about it nor do they apologize for it.

I disagree these are sayings that most baby boomers grew up with they're not a sign of some deep seated racism. Sayings like "I jewed them down" were something we heard our father or grandfather say that most really never drew a racist connection too it just became a saying to describe a person that was tight with money. Some of these terms even lose their negative roots and can be (in the right context), terms of endearment. Just acknowledging someone's race even in a negative context can be perfectly acceptable if you know them and your just fuckin around and I don't think a group of white guys saying something like that becomes true racism and not just posturing until it's said load enough for the woman to hear it. 

As far as Richards is concerned he might be a racist but you can't tell that from his angry outburst. People can just fuckin lose it sometimes and say the most hurtful things that pops into their heads. Irrational rage is quite common I'm sure you know someone like that. A guy I used to work with when he got mad he could barely put together a coherent sentence. It doesn't follow that that person has some deep hatred toward a specific race, they just happened to be the unlucky target of their rage.

for getting a good deal on something as " I Jewed them down"

Being from an area with zero Jewish population (in fact, I have only met one Jewish person in my entire life that I'm aware of -my niece's new husband) I never realized that was a derogatory term -just never gave it any thought to be honest.

Anyway, I know me some REAL honest-to-God racist, Elie! Guys who have swastika tats and shaved heads and WHITE POWER inked onto their chest. And I know some of the other flavor too. Funny, but I've observed they're alot like stray pitbulls -they never seem to want to mix it up when there's just ONE of them.

Pussies.

I dont respect either, but I can see your point.  It is called honesty.  I dont buy the arguement that they do not know what they are doing.  I think they know very well, but the "honest" bigot is striaght up with you.  The sneaky bastard tries to destroy you from within (knife in the back).

Back in the 70s, I saw a court room series.  Dont remember the one.  But a nice, well dressed man was on trial for something.  And he was doing a convincing (for the show) argument that the holocaust never happened.  Presenting evidence and showing how pictures and stuff could be doctored, etc.  He was about to convince the jury of this when a man, a former Nazi officer, took the stand in the court room and denounced him, proudly retelling of all his and his compatriots exploits to rid the world of undesirables.

Well of course the Jury did not buy the holocaust was a hoax.  And as the second man was being led out of the court room (about to be deported), he spat in the other's face and said he hated those that tried to hide what they had done.  And the man trying to convince the jury it never happened?  He told the Nazi "And it never will again thanks to your stupidity".

Yea, there is a special place in hell for people like that.  That does not make the open bigot any better, just more honest and less deadly.

Interesting point of view, I use to lose it all the time to the point of physical violence, somehow I do not remember me calling the mostly Italian kids I was fighting with Wops or Guineas, or the Puerto Rican kids I was fighting with Spics. So while you have some substance to what you say it's not a blanket thing by far. If the use of violence or getting angry is the "excuse" someone use to excuse themselves for making racist or bigoted remarks once again they fool no one but themselves.

Yeh Joe me too, I have ran into several of the racists type in my life also that when they find out I am "one of those" they get all 4 year old acting scuffing their shoes and stuttering. I have thumped more than a few of these types too, just for the hell of it. But I am 62 now and my thumping days are over and now all I can do is make sure not a single one of the undercover racists sneak into my life.
