"Feel?"

They're people with different skin colors.

Sometimes they come from different cultures than me. Sometimes they are geographically clustered. A lot of the time they have shared cultural experiences I am not in the position to comprehend.

Why should I feel differently about black people?

Ren, get your disgusting white supremacist, racist rants off this website.

As you and your friends have said, even mentioning that different races exist is racist.

Your ignorance is disgusting.

See, how I just used science to disprove all of your racist points?

Lol, Ren you're such a racist.

Obviously we all feel that they're exactly like us. Perfect in every way :)

Funny, interesting, sometimes crazy (in a good way)

Ive heard many of them vote Democratic, I respect their choices (im independent)

Economically?

Internationally?

I feel the same way about them as i do everyone else. Some I love. Some i don't care about. Some i dislike.

I went to a predominantely black school from elementary to high school (science and tech program.) It was different than a typical school, i guess. It was more socially challenging than a predominantely white school because I stuck out and didn't fade in with everyone around me. But in the long run, I think i turned out better off because of it. It taught me how to find strength in my differences; which is an attribute that a lot of minorities have.

I find it kind of funny how young kids today think it's cool to act "black" ie. act how the media portrays black people to act. on the surface it can give us hope for more acceptance among our future generations, but there is an underlying stigma instilled by the media that is lacking of substance and promotes cultural daftness and and overall skewed perception about the black community

Ask how I feel about individuals not how I feel about whole races. Any claim I make answering your question would be an appeal to generalizations and stereotypes and depending on how positive they are, racism...

Depends upon the individual blacks in question.

Politically?


Mostly Dem's but generally speaking, I don't care.

Economically?


Down south their purchasing power has been on the rise and I see them starting more small businesses.

Internationally?


Depends upon the nations in question and which nations you are comparing them to. They have staged the greatest revolution in history [see Haiti].

Generally?


Depends on the black person in question.

I make a comment about Jewish grandmothers and I'm raked over the coals for generalizing, and you have a thread like this? Kripes, even I wouldn't generalize like this, I mean how many black people do I need to know to have a sampling that allows a legitimate generalization (if there is such a thing)? I think I know more Jewish Grandmothers than black people to be honest.

And how do you feel about people whose name begins with the letter 'R'? There is nothing to be generalized about the category with respect to feelings.

I hate every single one of them.

Socially?
Black men I have noticed cause a lot more social problems then black women. For example, David Duke showed an interesting video where black on white rape is about 200% higher than white on black rape.

Politically?
Well we have our first black President...and I think most of us can agree (At least conservatives and libertarians) that he has done a very poor job. Altough I admit most conservatives and libertarians don't take his race into consideration whenever examining his achievements.

Economically?
Blacks were very good farm equipment back in the day and they yielded very good results for picking cotton. I would say blacks are very important economically, but not in modern day society...

Internationally?
A lot of blacks are in Africa, and we can see just how primitive they act with the constant genocides and wars raging there.

Generally?
See above. But generally, I very much dislike and/or hate blacks. There are some exceptions however, such as James Earl Jones for his unique voice that we all remember belonging to Darth Vader in the Star Wars trilogy. Other than that...I can't really name too many.

Wrong. Maybe distant distantly.

What if your Brazilian-American?
Jamaican?
Haitian?

Sure they're all "connected" to Africa but really? You're Haitian American not African American.

Too general. They're simply black. Big whoop. I'm white? So what?

Actually I demand to be called European American... if you don't you're racist.

Where the f*ck do you live? Serious question.

Socially?

Useless statistic. You might as well demonize all men because they overwhelmingly commit more rapes than women. Men rape more often than women, therefore all men are bad. That's your logic right there.

Economically?
Blacks were very good farm equipment back in the day and they yielded very good results for picking cotton. I would say blacks are very important economically, but not in modern day society.:

Yeah, f*ck the cotton gin. No point in mentioning that when the real goal is to denigrate a subset of humans.

Internationally?
A lot of blacks are in Africa, and we can see just how primitive they act with the constant genocides and wars raging there.:

Yet, you conveniently make no mention of Nazi Germany or the USSR which has slaughtered infinitely more people. Lol, you're a piece of infectious sh*t.

I'm not sure--why should you?

But, that's not the point. "Black people" is a clear and present concept, and that concept means something to you. I would like to know what it is.

If, to you, "Black people" literally means, "a group of dark-skinned people with geographically-based and/or cultural similarities that society ascribed further meaning to," then that's perfectly fine.

But, let's be upfront with the fact that "Black people" is an actual concept, and it's not simply, "the darker-skinned members of this society of certain cultural designations and influences."

Is that right? That's an interesting social dynamic that seems almost arbitrary... is there a specific reason why you relate to "Black people" that way?

Socially?
Funny, interesting, sometimes crazy (in a good way)

I take it the majority of the "Black people" you've encountered have similar personalities?

Politically?
Ive heard many of them vote Democratic, I respect their choices (im independent)

Why would they "vote Democratic," and how do you think this differs from your political reasonings?

Economically?

Every single person in this country contributes to its economy.

How could you feel exactly the same about "them," when your experience with them is strikingly "different" from (an unknown compared situation)?

It was more socially challenging than a predominantely white school

Is this in retrospect (as in, you realized this after attending a predominantly white school after the fact)?
