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

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

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.

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.

First off I just want to say that if anyone quickly goes off the bend about what I've said by thinking it's BS or whatnot WITHOUT reading my post and especially because they have not watched the videos then you are showing CurlTalk your true colors on this topic.

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.

From Michael Berg:

Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

Nevermind..Saria was kind enough to answer my question.

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.
