Racial Incidences in America

Post by zboy1 » June 13th, 2013, 5:34 am

I've decided to dedicate this thread to all the racial incidents happening in the United States. I'm doing this to dismiss the notion that the U.S. is a "melting pot" of a country, and that all races somehow 'get along,' when in reality, they don't. In fact, it's one of the most racist countries on the planet.

Where are all those people that defend the racism in the United States like Ladislav? Or those that try to pretend that the racism here is not as bad as any of the supposedly racist, Asian countries?

so true, america is the most racist country on the planet. They're just not direct about it as others. In addition, people will deny anything other than a happy melting pot when they're racist themselves.

It's pretty racist but at least it has laws to protect the oppressed and avenues of redress. And many good people who will come to help you. However, the most racist on the planet-- among the 196 countries we have? Nah. No such proof!
Where are all those people that defend the racism in the United States like Ladislav?


I'm here! I'm here! Where did I defend racism in the USA? Please quote me.
Or those that try to pretend that the racism here is not as bad as any of the supposedly racist, Asian countries?
It is not as bad as in Asian countries where they non-chalantly call white people foreign devils on TV. Learn Asian languages and listen to them talk and hear things they say about other races, nationalities and foreigners in general. Then compare it to the USA in degree and frequency of occurrence. Check their laws --where racism is legal. Look at the US gov't with so many different immigrants who rose to power and are now top officials. Compare it to Asian countries where there are -try- virtually none! Yes, racial incidents happen in a country of 330 million but they are aired and condemned and are seen as bad. In Asia, they are not even seen as bad.

Go and live in Asian countries for years-- as I have --and most importantly, learn the languages so that you could understand what they are saying about you. Then, come back and we'll talk.

As far as the kid, well, he went to an NBA game, dominated by black people dressed in a Mexican outfit. Not a good idea. Could have been something more neutral.

Having said all that, look at all the comments below defending the kid. Tens and tens of comments of people standing up for him.

In Asia it would just be silence. Just like it was for me when I tried to rent an apartment in Japan and had doors slammed in my face. No one stood up for me. I even went to a newspaper there and the reported took the side of the landlords- Americans look scary, he said. He still published an article about me-- not one Japanese person stood up for me. Not one helped me.

I will never forget those times.

In a nation of 330 million, yeah, there are gonna be some jerks.
There are also plenty of people who will risk their own safety to help strangers.
People even sign up for organ donation programs; willing to help people they'll never meet.

No, not everyone is going to want to date, befriend, live next door to you, or give you a fvcking cookie.
To cry "that's waisis!!" Image at every slight misses the broader point that if any of those jerks HARM you, burns a cross on your lawn, or vandalizes your property, the police WON'T require a bribe to look into it.

So some idiots get on line and talk crap about that Mexican kid playing the anthem.
How many dared try to harm him? ZERO. That's what counts.

You don't find many businesses in America with signs posted saying "no foreigners" either for hire or entry.
Can't say that for certain Asian countries.

You also have the right to defend your life & property without having to rely on your hand-to-hand combat skills.
Can't say that for a good chunk of the rest of the world.

I have lived or visited Asian countries before, namely South Korea and Thailand...and I was treated very well. The reason they don't like foreigners in Asia is because of all the crimes they commit, such as American soldiers raping Asian women, causing fights in bars and restaurants, and genuinely being disrespectful to the host country--and to the people who live in those countries. Take for example, how Aussies behave in Asia--many HappierAbroad posters have documented their behavior in Asia--and you will understand why Asians are distrustful of foreigners. Also, Ladislav, you--of all people, should know how poorly foreigners behave in Thailand. No wonder Thai's dislike foreigners!

In a way, it's similar with how Americans dislike illegal aliens for their behavior, such as refusing to speak English and forcing Americans to only speak Spanish, their refusal to assimilate to the dominant American culture, their tendency towards violence and criminality, and them partaking in--and benefiting from--the many welfare programs they're not legally entitled to..Who wouldn't be upset with that kind of behavior?

Interestingly, apparently, there was a huge revolt against this girl and she ended up getting fired from her job.

Also, a fund was set up that ended up raising $10,000 for the cashier (which he stated that he would use for medical school).

Teal, you don't have to use hand-to-hand combat in the States to protect against racial attacks? Really...


White family attacked for being in wrong neighborhood




Black Columbia University football player charged with hate crime




White guy beaten by racist Blacks for dating a Black woman in Savannah




Hate crime: Racist Latino punches 69 year old White woman in wheelchair, says "I hate White people"





And no racist signs or "no foreigners" entry in the U.S. Really...?

So, you are justifying it? No one denies that racial incidents happen in the USA. But they are illegal, and are immediately on the news and there's redress, charges and action. There are lawsuits. In other words, racist people are punished. Not in Asia. Nothing happens. The police and courts will take side of the locals, not the foreigner or a minority. Racism is not illegal there.
Gunn testified Friday at an Ohio Civil Rights Commission hearing in Cincinnati that the sign at the duplex where he rented an apartment cost his family emotionally and financially. The hearing was held to consider penalties that could include punitive and compensatory damages against Gunn’s former landlord.

The commission found on Sept. 29 that landlord Jamie Hein, who claimed that the 10-year-old girl’s hair products clouded the pool, discriminated against the child. The commission ruled that Hein, who is white, violated the Ohio Civil Rights Act by posting the sign.

Civil rights, the commission, suits, penalties, hearing..man, there's going to be hell to pay. Where is this in Asia when a Japanese jumps out and starts jabbering "Gaijin dame, gaijin dame!"? Or a Thai goes into an epyleptic fit with his "farang, farang, farang" shyt?

So, it's OK to dislike all foreigners because of some drunken fights by the GIs? As in the 'entire world'? Even a university professor from Mongolia ( an Asian) was denied an apartment in Japan when I was there. They are simply 100 years behind the US/the West in human rights and it does not only apply to racism but also classism, sexism etc-- you should hear the drivel they talk on TV and the insults they hurl-- in their language, of course. Those countries are socially backward still.

Not that the US is socially advanced, but it's still better in many ways. Asians don't even have the phrase 'you are racist' in their language. Many don't know the meaning of unfair generalization. Nothing like this is taught in schools. In Thailand, many schools will even refuse a mixed child--is this because it's a GI that will start fights --even if it's a girl?

Note: the above does not apply to the Philippines or Singapore.

Americans disliking illegal aliens? Well, these are illegal. Do you see signs forbidding their entry though?

White people are legal in Asia for the most part-- they have visas and all. Most are working as teachers and all. WTF?

Show me a "no foreigners" sign in the US though. A "no aliens" sign. An "Americans only" sign.
