While I think the phrase "hot mess " is done to death, sometimes it's the only thing that will do.

While pre-colonial Africa, like all societies, had slavery, it was not anywhere near as severe as US plantation slavery or slavery elsewhere in the Americas. The only place in Africa that had anything close to what plantation slavery was like in the US was what is known as the kingdom of Dahomey.

Can some explain the difference between Racism and prejudice. I always thought that they came hand in hand or that a racist is prejudice, but a prejudice person is not always racist

I think they said that racism is when a certain group of people has the power to hold others back on a grand scale. Basically...?

I knew a lot of prejudiced people from the small town I'm from. They might have snarled at me or set their dogs loose to chase me when I was on my way to school. Or they may have made derogatory comments about Black folks (when they made derogatory comments in front of me it was always preceded with "You aren't like the others," or "You're smart, so you're not Black.". ) Then they would proceed to talk about how ____, ____ or ____ Black people were. (Resulted in many arguments, of course.) But anyway I saw all these people as prejudiced and obviously ignorant, but not racist. They were too intellectually and financially disadvantaged to affect me in any kind of way. Nope don't consider those fools racist..

ETA I had racist teachers and coaches though. The difference being they were in positions of power. I have so many examples of actions they took to disadvantage me based on their prejudices about my perceived race.

BTW I'm over this discussion because it's stupid. When people get a clue that racism and bigotry is stupid maybe it'll stop. But I believe th OP is intentionally trying to incite people and I for one am over it.

Prejudice is literally pre-judging someone or something--that is, forming a judgment before you have all the facts. Like in the title of Pride and Prejudice, this pre-judgment isn't necessarily based on bigotry. Nevertheless, "prejudice" can be synonymous with "bigotry" and "discrimination."

Racism, broadly speaking, is prejudice based on racial bigotry. In a more technical sense, only systemic racial prejudice is classed as racism. So under this narrower definition, there is no anti-white racism in the US, even though individuals may be racially prejudiced against white people.

Some people here have said that they would be quick to question someone if there was a racist remark, for example, directed towards whites but it's a lot easier to say that then to actually do it. I keep hearing things like "white privilege", "white supremacy" and so forth which is why I decided to actually question it and did more research on this rather then blindly go by....blahblahblah

One of the most recent things I came across here on CurlTalk was a white woman saying about what she had endured racism from living in a community where there were very few, if any white people but of course, she was told that that was different(as it often is) and cannot be compared to racism towards black people. WTF?!?! Seriously? I could not believe that even though I see it time and time again which led me to some interesting findings that came from sources that was both unexpected yet great to see. Racism is all the same no matter what color you are. It is never acceptable for one group of people yet wrong for another. I'm I the only one that sees this? Apparently not.

Hey uhhhh, are you talking about me here? LOL well this is awkward.

I think she meant to post a new thread. She'll likely delete this as soon as she realizes what happened. A lot of us have done this a few times.

Oh I'm sorry..thanks Saria. I'll erase my post just in case she would prefer her post not be in here at all.

Thank you.

If the OP were truly looking to exchange ideas, she would not start off with a preemptive attack on anyone with opposing views. Reasonable and open-minded individuals who are willing to listen and review their ideas don't make it to adulthood whilst maintaining such delusional and misinformed ideas about the world they live in.
