Uuuh... What? I don't feel uncomfortable around non-Black people. I'm part-White, there's White people on both sides of my family, my step-father is White. The only thing that makes me uncomfortable is people who are ignorant and refuse to see that not everyone is treated equally in this country. Especially when it comes to the treatment of women and POC.

The only reason I may choose to hang out with Black people more often is because of cultural differences, but I don't pick my friends based on race since I myself am multiracial anyway.

Confused.
Not everyone is treated equally in this country because we are human beings with flaws and life is not fair. People who don't treat you the same because you are black are the same people who will treat someone differently because of their hairstyle or the car they drive. Those people will never go away. People who make fun of the disfigured people they see in church. They're all part of the potpourri.

This is a big reason why some white people treat blacks differently. Because they see them isolating themselves and it makes them feel uncomfortable. We don't understand why you do that so much. Just because your day in the life is different doesn't mean that people aren't interested.

There will always be evil people who choose to be evil, but they're not the majority and people shouldn't use them as examples to represent the whole.

Explain why you think I am.

White people really feel that way.

How are things ever going to change from a racial standpoint if you avoid white people and where white people are because of "cultural differences".

Yea, I'm not going to comment on that. That's just pure ridiculousness.

Just the ones I know. Honestly. You're trying to be a black who speaks for all whites which is funnier. You're trying to tell me I'm wrong about white perceptions. Why? Because it's not what you heard in your propagandized college course on black studies? BWAHAHAHAHA!

What would you think if there was a small percentage of whites within a group of blacks and they only seemed to interact with one another?

Where did I say that I avoid White people? And why would I live in Santa Barbara if I want to avoid White people? I even lived in Austria which is 90% White.

Confused.

SEE with their MIND. But really. Just because you're sitting in a room thinking, "Oh, I'm the only black here, I need to feel self conscious...everyone is looking at me and wondering this or that." Well, it's not always what you think if you think that.

I wouldn't care??? If they're not doing anything wrong then I don't see the harm. People can hang out with whoever they like. I don't care if I see a group of White people hanging out. I don't care if I see a group of Asian or Hispanic people hanging out.

People can do whatever they like.

Ummm... ?????

Slinky, your posts really don't make any sense. What in the world are you talking about? No one here is trying to speak for all white people. And really, what propaganda?? I really want to know where you get your info from.

You said you socialized with blacks more. White people talk amongst themselves about blacks seeming to all know one another and all of that. Like your friends said. And we hear all kinds of bad things about how racist and awful whites are, and we wonder. Seriously.

You lived in Austria? Well, I guess you have perspectives that I couldn't possibly have from that alone.

No, they treat black people differently because those white people you know are a**holes, and black people supposedly isolating themselves provides a nice excuse for them. If it's not the "isolation," it'd be something else.
