    The vicious circle of racists. How do you know he is racist because some people say so. Why does some people say that because he is racists. The stupidity goes round and around.

    In my opinion 'whites' created racism
    Racism is stupid beyond belief, never will I understand the reasoning
    If blacks have become racist, can't say I blame them
    There are some cultures I don't like, nor agree with, so I wouldn't visit that country or mingle with the people
    But I would never hurl insults, I would just ignore what I don't like

    rac·ism
    /ˈrāˌsizəm/

    noun

    • 1.prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior:"a program to combat racism"synonyms:racial discrimination, racialism, racial prejudice, xenophobia, chauvinism, ... more
    Powered by Oxford Dictionaries

    I think the "elite" created racism. I don't think it's so much an opinion of one's own race being superior... as it is an opinion of some in a race believing they are superior to another race. And if they have the position in life and the means to influence others of that same race to that same position then they "become King of the Hill" and can influence others of their race into believing their opinion is right and just.

    Of course, its all about 'influence' Babs
    When we asked the Jamaicans to come here to live and work back in the 50s, they were met with hostility from
    the people here. They worked hard and tried to ignore the hostility
    Their children however, looked upon the hostility as very unfair on the parents and grew up with 'attitude'
    Don't blame them one bit
    If people are invited to join a community, they deserve a fair chance

    Some people will always have a problem when people come to the U.S. and continue to speak their native tongue in public or even have a heavy accent. There has always been a problem with that concerning people coming here from Mexico to live/work as well as the "boat people"/Vietnamese. I believe both Chief Auto Parts and Pep Boy's in So. California have parts location signs in their stores that are in English, Spanish and Vietnamese.

    @Cody Fousnaugh - I think the priority for any foreign person entering a country is that they speak
    that language. Mainly out of respect for the host country but also it shows effort and willingness

    If the person is going to actually live there. If visiting, that's a different thing. It's amazing how many people, mainly young adults, in foreign countries can speak English and speak it very well.

    Unfortunately, the U.S. doesn't make it hard for folks to live here. It's not just some stores that put signs in different languages, a lot of Instruction Manuals for items are in different languages as well. Some government agencies, like law enforcement, have to have officers that are Bilingual to communicate with some folks.

    If a person complains about a person/person's who don't speak English or speaks poor English, some say that person is a racist.

    The police and other agencies also have to have an interpreter - not good !
    Does that make me a racist - of course not, the word is used far too often

    I appreciate @Babs Hunt putting up the definition of racism. I think it would be good to have a commercial on TV, or anywhere the majority of humans might read it and actually know what it is. The ignorance I'm seeing like the vid someone put up about the millenials not knowing what the Civil War was made me want to cry in shame:(

    It wouldn't surprise me a bit if some people thought racists are people that compete in "games" or sports that "race" for the finish line:confused:

    Seems to me the people that cry racist at every turn just don't have any evidence of wrong-doing so they can always start that rumor about a person. Push the biggest buttons people "seem" to have nowadays if you want to start something.

    Sometimes I think the words "racism" and "prejudism" go hand-in-hand when it comes to being overstated.

    Not to change the OP, but some folks think 55+ Communities is "prejudism" against lower age brackets.

    Black lives matter is the only one who is not racist that’s what they are teaching

    Baltimore teachers teach anti-white racism to little school children

    Was unable to view the video, but 'if' its true, then the school should be shut down or
    if its a solo teacher, dismissed.
    Of course it works both ways, racism is still rife but to teach this in schools ? Outrageous
    We have Muslim schools set up over here to teach the same :( :rolleyes:

    With all the things children have access to today, it's hard to shelter them anymore:( I know there are families that home-school, don't even have tv's, maybe don't allow computers, but to me that is one of the worst parts of these things. Kids don't get the learn or see the "good" things, like exploring the world, participating in school activities that are healthy, learning how to interact with other children. There's just so much bad, parents go to extremes to try and protect their kids. Thing is, dealing with some of those difficulties can also prepare the kids on how to handle themselves amongst wolves.

    I don't know the answer, I think a lot about kids of today though:( I would not want to be young in this day and age.

    The answer if you want to influence a country it is easy control what they know. Start with education then move on to media and in time you will get them to believe anything you want.
    By the look of what is going on now only the older generation is waking up.

    Yes, and I remember the numbers were very high for Seniors voting for Trump. I think you are so right. Didn't people like Hitler start on the young people asap when he was taking over? That, sadly, happens here too, especially if the parents either are for the lessons, or just aren't paying attention to what their children are being taught in school. Pier pressure is out of control too, bullying etc. I have to admit if I had children/grand-children I would be afraid as if I were sending them into a battlefield:(

    Particularly when they are being taught that they are smarter and more aware than their parents, and that there are no absolutes.

    @Denise Happyfeet Because I know and have known many people who Home School their children I can tell you that most of these homeschoolers do have access to TV and Computers, but they are learning tools, not something they are allowed to waste their minds watching "trash", etc. on. And as for exploring the world, since they are homeschooled, their parents can take them anywhere and turn these trips into history, geography, or science lessons, etc. Here in Louisiana Home Schoolers have their own sports teams that play against each other, they have field trips that they take together, and many other activities where the different Home Schooling Families get together and socialize with each other, etc.

    Those who are homeschooled are in a far better position than those children who are in Public School because in public schools recesses have been all but eliminated, lunch periods have been cut to the max allowing no time to talk with other students and barely enough time to eat...definitely not enough time to eat properly for good digestion. And they cannot learn anything but what is on the curriculum that has to be taught by the Teacher. They do not have opportunities to explore and use their imaginations...this would be considered bad conduct and not acceptable in public school. And those in public schools are given so much homework that even their at home time is filled with trying to get this homework done before going to bed.

    Home Schooled children for the most part score higher on tests than public school children do. They score higher on the entrance tests for College too. But most of all they are independent individuals who know how to think for theirselves and actually enjoy learning.

    The school system came out with the idea of no one gets left behind. So in reality we bring everyone back to the slowest person. That sounds intelligent and everyone get a trophy so the person in last place gets credit for being last. The system is design to make everyone stupid and it is working

    A lot of people don't realize how easy homeschooling is these days. Not to suggest that there's nothing to it, but many people reject the idea on the basis that they are not teachers, they don't believe that they are capable of putting together curriculum and classroom materials, and because they are afraid that their children won't learn to socialize. In reality, there are tons of curriculum available, including workbooks, DVDs, and computer-aided material. For that matter, full online programs are available at all levels, and there are homeschooling groups in many parts of the country that allow for socialization. Although laws differ from state to state, with homeschooling being all but illegal in some states, such as California; in other states - like Maine - homeschooled children have the right to be enrolled in any classes or programs that are available from the public school, since their parents are still paying to support the public school. We homeschooled our nephew, but enrolled him in the choir, music, and performing arts programs at the public school.

    Here in Louisiana Home Schoolers can even go to the School Board and get their books to teach from if they want.

    I have to agree that home schooling is best if the parent is committed to it. I only went to school for 2&1/2 years as a child. My father didn't believe girls should be taught above the fifth grade. But I fell in love with books and learning when I was seven, saw my first library, and received my first county library card. From that day on, I read everything I could get my hands on.

    When I was about 12, I learned you could get the curriculum for whatever grade you wanted from the schools at the beginning of each school year. I added the named books to my library list each year. So my education came to me in that fashion. I guess you could say I'm self taught.

    When I was 35, I decided to go college, so I put my fear of rejection and failure aside, and I went to take the entrance exams. You can not imagine my shock I was when I not only passed, but I was given a TASP exemption. I forget what those letter stood for, but it meant I didn't have to take all the further tests that most of the other new students had to take for placement. All my classes were honors courses.

    What really surprised me was that more than half the new student had to take remedial courses before they could even get to the 101 beginner's cases. It made me wonder what kids in public school were/weren't being taught.

    Two of my gradaughter suffered from racism,when they were young ,My family is Australian born and bred as far back as I know of ,however my daughter married a young man from Vietnam in 1990 who's family had made there home in Australia back when my ex SIL was only a small child .

    The Grandchildren ( girls) suffered when they started school ,being called racist / slang names useally reserved for Australian indigious people.,as well as other racist names

    I don't believe little children ,like 5/6 year olds make up the names ,they must learn from parents / carers
    I had another example from a man who lived on the opitsite side of the road from me and about 6 houses down
    He stopped me in the street one day as I was walking my two granddaughters around to the corner shop
    The GD 's would have been about 4 and 7 at the time ..he said would you mind not walking on my side of the street with those "non Australian children" ....they are Aust ..they were born here
    You'd think a man in his 50 's would know better
