"It's science!"

Two students are talking about the upcoming Grey's Anatomy episode.

Girl: Meredith isn't going to die, she gets told that it's not her time.
Guy: They're going to kick off Burke because he's racist.
Girl: He can't be racist - he's black!

-- Business 020 class, overheard by Shawn

You could make an argument that the average black person is more racist than the average white person.

Why? Because the majority of black people are always whining about how everything wrong in their life is somehow whitey keeping them down. To the average black, it's accepted as fact that white people are the SOLE source of all problems to the black community, and the demand government handouts to solve the problem.

Now think about how racist it would be if it was white people making the claim that everything wrong with the white community was black people!!!

... you do know that actually happened right and it still does? Last time I checked the response of "Whitey's keeping us down" (as you so eloquently put it, is a direct result of "Whitey" actually keeping the average African American person down...

^ Dude STFU. Only idiots actually believe there's some grand Caucasian conspiracy to keep African-Americans "down".

As to historical grievances... look at Asians. They had it rough in North America, too. But instead of whining endlessly and blaming others, they picked themselves up and pressed forwards socially, politically and economically. Too many African-Americans are still too caught up in the whole "oh noes help I am teh victim!!!!!" to take responsibility and lift themselves out of poverty.

Oh look ... here comes the asians to steal the show again.

If I had a dime for every time you asians leveraged your own discrimination to downplay whitey's reverse racism claims justifying their own grand scheme to keep the blacks below the poverty line ...

7:32, you clearly have no black friends. Now think about how racist it would be to make generalizations about what the majority of black people are always saying or thinking when you hardly ever talk with them. And go fuck yourself.

8:54 and 2:48, It's nice to know there are at least two intelligent people who post on OaW

11:20, when you get a job that a black person (such as myself) gets turned down for, come back and give me your conspiracy theory rant...(that is assuming that you don't end up frying up chicken for my finger-lickin cravings for the rest of your life)<--- 7:32 I swea's suh, its true. We jus' loves the fried chick'n...

Just in case you're too dense to pick up on it, I was being sarcastic

WOW! I didn't think it was possible, but I think we just time warped back into the pre-civil rights era. I can't say much about the clothing though... yeesh.

11:25... the problem is, you're insinuating that the only reason you're turned down from jobs is due to your ethnicity.

Has it crossed your mind that maybe the reason you don't get every job you apply for is because, you know, some candidates are ACTUALLY better qualified?

News flash: people (of all ethnicities) don't always get hired for the jobs they apply for.

I think he/she was being ironic; after so many racial generalizations were made previously. It would explain the "sarcastic" comment at the end at least.

racism isn't really the question here, it's homophobia- which is the actual reason that burke would get kicked off the show- way to jump of the racism bandwaggon though.

We started this conversation about the girl that was overheard saying black people can't be racist (which is a racist comment), not about Burke. But way to show us you know something about the cast of Grey's Anatomy. And thanks for the enlightenment.

See that would be silly. There are plenty of Hispanics and immigrants for white North American society to blame for their problems (don't forget them Arab terrorists!) without having to resort to blaming Blacks. Jesus buddy, catch up on your Fox news viewing.

arab terrorists?..whether it was meant as a joke to prove a point or otherwise..it was rude ignorant and uncalled for..

thanks

That was OBVIOUSLY meant as satire. But I do love how you were only offended by the mention of Arab terrorists, and not the part about Hispanics and immigrants ruining society. I further think that YOU were uncalled for.
Thanks.
