The term African American is stupid unless a person is refering to someone who was born in Africa and lives in America.  You can't call a black person African American if you don't know them because their ancestors could be from someplace like Jamaica or Brazil.  If we're going to call black people African Americans we should call white people European Americans.

All the time racist comments about Latino's African American's, so on and so on, I don't get it.

The world still needs to be able to label people.  For example, it really helps in catching a criminal if the description of the person includes the race.  If the description is a Male 5'9" wearing a blue shirt and black pants, the color of the person's skin would help in narrowing down the possible suspects.

i'm part mexican, caucasian, and filipino, and i find it funny when spanish-speaking people talk crap in spanish and think i don't understand. (i mostly look white). fact of the matter is, racism comes from every race, no single race is special. and most races are subject to racism because races are so generalized. (if you speak spanish, you're mexican, if you're black, you're culture is "stereotypical black". if you're some form of asian, then you're either: chinese or japanese.)

i'm not even mexican and caucasian, i just used those cause they are generalized. i'm guatemalan, and norwegian. but to anyone else, i'm from mexico, or america. *shrug*. when in truth, i was born in japan, and raised american.

a lot of the "victims" of racism..... are racist themselves, and personally, i don't think "because people are racist to us" justifies being racist in return. you're either racist or not, there's no in-between. the sadder part is they are too stubborn to see it themselves.



you should just ignore it and move on. but it's paramount that you are not racist right back at them. racism is a form of shallow judgment, and if people get to know you, then race won't even matter.
Then again, well, actually nevermind.
