Commenting on an urban blog
I think every ethnic group likes to live near people who are similar in culture, customs, values, language and heritage.
Is it racism for a black person to want to live with black people?
Is it racism for a white person to want to live with white people?
These are the real questions this video brings up for me.
Word On the Street
Their question: Can a black person be racist?
My answer: let's deconstruct "racist." It can mean two things:
- Prefers to live in a nation composed of people similar in customs, values, culture, language and heritage.
- Prefers to live in a mixed nation where they can scorn, oppress, abuse, mock and vilify people of other races.
I think almost everyone, except people who get on a moral high horse for being "open-minded," is of type (a).
People who are of type (b) I think are sadists using race as their medium.
